Prince Harry has compared Meghan Markle's mental health struggles to those of his mother Princess Diana's in part two of their docu-series.

Netflix's Harry & Meghan is the six part series which follows their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to leave their full-time roles with the royal family.

Well, since the series first aired on Netflix today last week, some customers have actually threatened to cancel their subscriptions.

"I’m going to cancel my Netflix subscription this is disgusting," blasted one. "I seriously want to ask Harry where is your loyalty to your brother."

Another said: "I've been putting it off, but the Harry and Meghan show gives me enough reason to go ahead and cancel @netflix."

"Cancel Netflix. They abuse subscriber feeds to deliver Bs that is harry and Meghan," put a third.

While another added: "Harry and Meghan whining on a @netflix show is enough for me to want to cancel that service."

However, the second part of their explosive documentary - which aired today (15 December) - sees Prince Harry claim that 'no one in the royal family' speaks 'openly' about mental health.

The Duke of Sussex said: "I can't think what my mum went through all those years ago by herself.

"To see this institutional gaslighting that happens is, it is extraordinary. and that's why everything that's happened to us was always gonna happen to us."

Comparing his wife's health struggles with his mother's, Harry explained: "No one in the family speaks that openly. No one had done, apart from one person. My mum."

The full synopsis for the series reads: "In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.

"Across six episodes, the series explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution.

"With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family's relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple's love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other.

"From the critically-acclaimed, two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director Liz Garbus, Harry & Meghan is a never-before-seen look at one of the most-discussed couples in history."
