My Twisted Writer Brain…

Did You Watch The Harry and Meghan Interview?

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.

  1. I’m watching their interview now and I finished the 4th episode. I think they’re a really lovely couple and they’re really a wonderful example of modern romance – meeting at the right time of their lives and working together to make the world a better place.
    I’m really glad they are able to tell their story – the royal media can be particularly nasty, and I’m happy we get to all hear their side of the story. Some people are nasty to anyone they don’t like online – celebs and regular people alike – I think their interview is a good reminder that people aren’t just tabloids, but humans, too.

    1. Hi Sara. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I too, just finished the 4th episode. Unlike so many I still like them. I agree that Meghan was thrown into a situation that she thought she could handle only to find it completely overwhelming. How can anyone fault that? The media is brutal and the constant barrage must’ve been awful. I don’t like how they close ranks and not discuss it. I think after so many years it’s refreshing for someone to fight back and say screw you. I believe Harry and Meghan will always be outcasts and hopefully after they get their story out, they can move forward with their own narrative. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. It really is appreciated.

  2. Yes, I watched it. Kind of had to make myself watch to the finish. I am a bit of a romantic and enjoy a good love story tho. But I can’t help think that she must have known what she was in for especially after Diana. But I guess she thought she could handle it with Harry’s support and you never really know how you will handle a situation until you’re into it. I loved how they took their dogs everywhere even on the plane.

    1. Hi Heather. Yes. I think I may be somewhat of a romantic too. When we enter into situations that are new we often go in with an attitude of “I’ll do it different” (from Diana for example) or “I’m stronger and have a more supportive spouse…” I don’t think you realize how small your world gets until you’re there. So sad.I’m still enjoying the series though. All the best to you. xo
