On December 8th, 2022, Netflix released the first three episodes of the docu-series Harry and Meghan.
The pictures are from BBC News. They ask did the episodes live up to the hype?
I Watched. Did You?
I think we all have a soft spot in our hearts for Harry. Let’s face it, so many of us watched him as a little boy walk behind the coffin of his mother–stoic and alone. No kid should ever be in such a situation.
When Meghan came on the scene, I liked her immediately. There was just something about her and the way the couple interacted that drew me to them.
She was, like others, put into that sink-or-swim situation of having to learn to survive on her own. I don’t think the issue was family, it was–and still is–the media.
It reminds me a lot of what happened in the USA not too many years ago. When someone in power makes allegations and slurs against others that are then printed and passed through the world, the haters come out of the woodwork and get more vocal.
That voice, can and did, become so hateful and damaging that hell yeah, I woulda been on the first plane out too.
The thing is, those haters and trolls are often the minority, but they stir excitement and pour fuel on the lies, the pain, and doubts which then creates more tension, secrecy, and suffering– those who stir the pot, count on it.
I believe that this young couple just wants to be seen and acknowledged for who they are and not what people “think” they are. I totally get that.
If you have a platform where you have the ability to speak your truth and strike against the lies, then why wouldn’t you?
According to Wikipedia, the docu-series was the most watched Netflix series in Britain for 2022.
Tell me your thoughts below.
Do you think Harry and Meghan should tell their story?
Does Harry still have an obligation to the Royal Family?
What do you think?
While some may say–who cares?– I think we all should because why give voice and space for the haters. Again, I see this whole thing as being about the media and power to wield the almighty sword.
