Royal fans have taken over Twitter, sharing divided opinions on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell Netflix documentary.
The highly anticipated series is being split into two parts, with the first three episodes of the docu-series now available to stream.
Followers have already started bingeing through the episodes – which cover Harry’s childhood; the death of Princess Diana; Meghan and Harry’s love story begins; never-before-seen family photos; Megaxit; Racism and his new life in California.
Viewers shared different views – some found the docu-series to be a story of two people in love, but others criticized the show as ‘boring’.
‘The episode was an amazing one. I love the attention taken to grounding Harry’s story in his childhood. Such lovely moments I want to stay up and binge the rest, but the will power!,’ said one.
But the other disagreed, saying: ‘I sorry Netflix, I’ve turned off the TV, because the Harry and Meghan documentary is so boring, nothing new, they’re just deluding themselves. i never seen any bOring shows more than that. #HarryandMeghanNetflix
Piers Morgan said: ‘It’s worse than Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Something I didn’t think was humanly possible. #HarryandMeghanonNetflix
People have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the documentary released this morning
Meghan and Harry fans have hailed the couple as ‘two people who only wanted to maintain their bubble’ and have compared Meghan to Diana – as does Harry in the first episode.
One wrote, “This Harry and Meghan doc is really just about two people who had a secret love and wanted to maintain that bubble.”
But critics saw their show as a ‘prolonged publicity exercise’ with the couple ‘earning millions from Netflix.’
‘The first few minutes of Harry & Meghan Netflix show clear evidence that this is one long conspiracy, image-boosting, publicity-grabbing exercise with revenge, justified or imagined, thrown into an opportunistic, explosive brew. Cynicism can be very healthy sometimes,’ said one.
Another hit: ‘Prince Harry, you shouldn’t be apologizing to anyone! You protected your family like a true family man.
In the opening scenes, Harry is shown at Heathrow Airport in footage he filmed in March 2020 at the culmination of the Megaxit crisis and as he prepares to leave the UK for the last time as a senior royal.
The series launched with a written statement saying it is the ‘first account of Harry and Meghan’s story in a never-before-seen personal archive’.
It said all interviews were to end in August 2022 and that ‘members of the royal family declined to comment on the content of this series’.

Harry says: ‘We’ve just completed two weeks, our final push, our last leg of the royal engagement.
‘Now to look back on it and go, ‘What on earth happened?’
He says: ‘It’s not just about our story. It has always been much bigger than us.
‘Nobody knows the whole truth. We know the whole truth. The organization knows the whole truth. And the media knows the whole truth because they are on it.
‘And I think anybody else in my position would have done the exact same thing.’
Meanwhile, Meghan was seen saying: ‘I really want to get on the other side of all this.’
She takes a silent pause before looking emotional and says: ‘I don’t know what else to say.’
Harry and Meghan signed lucrative deals worth more than £88million with the streaming giant and Spotify after stepping down as senior working royals in 2020 following family changes and struggles with royal life.
The ‘unprecedented and intense’ documentary series directed by Oscar nominee Liz Garbus is billed as a Netflix global event, with Harry and Meghan sharing ‘the other side of their high-profile love story’.
