It's almost been two months since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle got candid about their life since leaving the royal family in 2020, and now a new Discovery+ documentary called Meghan and Harry: Recollections May Vary will dissect their CBS interview.
The Shearwater-produced special will look at the couple's speech, tone of voice, movements and expressions frame by frame — especially when they claimed that someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color, in addition to Meghan revealing she was suicidal at one point in time.
The special will also touch upon the pair's 2017 engagement interview, the 2019 ITV special with Tom Bradbury and Prince William's response to racism claims made by Harry and Meghan in the CBS interview.
“In one of our most ambitious investigative specials to date, the royal interview that divided the world is going under the microscope. With Shearwater at the helm, Meghan and Harry: Recollections May Vary promises to serve up some ground-breaking insights that may finally put to bed questions around the claims that made headlines," Clare Laycock, senior VP of planning and head of content for lifestyle and entertainment, said.
“This is a new and different way to dissect the interview of the year. What is revealed by facial expressions, physical gestures and patterns of speech? The answers are fascinating," Shearwater executive producer Steve Anderson stated.
Harry flew home in mid-April to attend Prince Philip's funeral. However, he didn't receive a warm welcome from his family. Now, it seems like it might take a while for the red-headed royal to fix things with his brood going forward.
"No one should underestimate the damage done by that Oprah interview," a royal insider said. "The fact of them leaving is sad but wouldn’t have been such a problem had they gone about it in a different way. The interview was disgraceful on so many fronts. Not just what Harry — and Meghan — said about their own family."
"But also the way in which they attacked every decent person who had worked for them and tried to support them," the insider continued. "There is a lot of anger about that. It is all so sad but ... also very damaging."
Meghan and Harry: Recollections May Vary will air on April 30 in the U.K.
