Meghan Markle Says Netflix Documentary Is Not 'The Way' She & Prince Harry 'Would Have Told It'
Meghan Markle is finally getting candid about her and Prince Harry's upcoming Netflix documentary, hinting that she didn't sound too pleased with how it turned out.
“It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I’ve long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it,” she told Variety.
“But that’s not why we’re telling it. We’re trusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens," she added of director Liz Garbus' vision.

Meghan and Harry's viewpoints also seemed to differ, as the latter's book didn't line up with what Meghan had to say on camera.
“A lot in the show contradicted what Harry has written, so that was an issue,” a source told Page Six. “Then Harry and Meghan made significant requests [to filmmakers] to walk back content they themselves have provided, for their own project.”
As The Royal Observer previously reported, it seems like they are changing their tune about what they release into the world, as they don't want to aggravate the royal family.
“They’ve both agreed to reach a neutral ground by softening the parts on Charles and adding intimate details about [Queen Elizabeth II's] legacy,” an insider told Us Weekly.

“He’s so grateful to Meghan for her input and they make all of these big decisions together, so of course there’s that balancing act of weighing up pros and cons to consider,” the insider noted of Harry's tome. “And it goes the other way, too — he’s equally involved in her big picture, they’re very much at one that way and maintain they always will be.”
Harry is apparently adding more details to his book after visiting his brood.
"Jeffrey Archer, well-connected in the published world is saying that Harry is writing a new chapter completely," the Daily Mail's Richard Eden shared. "We've had all these stories about whether the book will be delayed or whether there will be changes. From what he was saying, it will be dealt with by a new chapter that will be on the Queen's funeral and the events surrounding it. It will give him a chance to address those stories about him being offended by not being able to wear his uniform and then not having the ER letters on his epaulettes."
