If one thing’s been made clear since the release of Netflix’s Harry & Meghan docuseries, it’s that people love to hate the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
And after the final three episodes dropped on the streaming giant today (15 December), viewers were quick to express anger over the way the loved-up couple described their former home Nottingham Cottage.
Nottingham Cottage was given to Harry and Megan by the late Queen and sits on the ground of Kensington Palace, and of the property, Meghan said in episode four: “It sounds very regal but Nottingham Cottage was so small."
Harry, noting that the cottage was ‘lean’ and had ‘low ceilings’, added: "As far as people were concerned we were living in a palace. [But] we were living in a cottage. On palace grounds.
"Kensington Palace sounds very regal of course, it does say palace in the name. But Nottingham Cottage was small."
Social media users were quick to pick up on the Sussexes comments, with one particularly angry person writing on Twitter: “Those two ungrateful greedy idiot clowns.
"Meghan & Harry complain about Nottingham Cottage? The very same building that once upon a time was Prince William and Princess Catherine’s home?
"Who do they think they are?”
Another wrote: “15 minutes into Harry and Meghan part 2 and they're already complaining about how small Nottingham Cottage was,” while a third social media user tweeted: “Harry was fine with Nottingham Cottage before Meghan came alone. They want to get in the real world.
"They have a house, mortgage free and in Kensington. The entitlement is unbelievable.”
The second half of the long-awaited series finally hit Netflix today (15 December) and much like the first half, left people seriously divided.
The synopsis for the show 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."
