Buckingham Palace staff are reportedly 'seething' about Netflix's new Harry & Meghan documentary series.
The six-part show promises to explore 'the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution', and it's not gone down well with their former staff.
Watch the trailer here:
In the trailer, Harry claims that stories were 'planted' about them, saying that 'no one knows the full truth'.
Now, supposed former members of the Sussexes' household want the Palace to rebuff the claims made in the documentary, or lift the non-disclosure agreements they were made to sign before losing their jobs, according to the Daily Mail.
One source told the publication: "People are getting utterly fed up of having to listen to them [Harry and Meghan] spouting these claims with their hands tied behind their backs. They want the opportunity to correct them.
"And if the Palace isn't going to do that because it is so concerned about exacerbating this war of attrition with the duke and duchess, or because – as we are told – they feel it is wrong for them to speak for former staff, then let them do it themselves. They have plenty to say."
Tyla has contacted Harry and Meghan's reps for comment.
No doubt there will be plenty of headlines emerging over the coming days, with the first volume of the series dropping on Netflix this morning (Thursday 8 December), and the second instalment landing next Thursday (15 December).
The series begins with a written statement on a black background saying it is a 'first-hand account of Harry & Meghan's story, told with never before seen personal archive'.
It also said that all interviews were finished in August 2022 and 'members of the Royal Family declined to comment on the content within this series'.
The 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."
