More than 400,000 people gave a thumbs down to the trailers for "Harry & Meghan," which is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix documentary.

The first clip lasting for 72 seconds was released last week. It revealed previously unseen photos from the couple's family album. It also had a voiceover from Harry saying that "no one sees what's happening behind closed doors."

According to Daily Mail, the clip has had more than seven million views, but more than 281,000 people "dislike" the video, a popular online tool revealed. It also showed how just 22,000 gave the trailer a thumbs up. The second video was released at the weekend. It showed Harry hitting out at a "hierarchy of the family." It has been disliked by 120,000 people, and only 22,000 have "liked" it.

The figures are from the internet browser add-on Return Youtube Dislikes. It was released after YouTube hid its own controversial dislike counter in November 2021. Users could still say they did not like a video, but the public measure was removed, and the Return Youtube Dislikes tool allows users to see how unpopular videos are.

Creator Dmitry Selivanov said that the motivation behind "this was simple convenience," and that he prefers to see the "rating of the video before I waste time watching it." The tool, which is said to be used by more than eight million people on a daily basis, uses a combination of archived dislike statistics and data from users of the extension to produce a figure.

"Harry & Meghan" features archival footage and interviews with the former royals, reported Decider. The six-episode project also includes insight from their family, friends and historians. Directed by Liz Garbus, it promises to reveal "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,” according to Netflix.

Netflix described the 88 million pounds ($10,67,98,032) show as a "global event," according to The Sun. After the first trailer was released, sources said that it was tantamount to a "declaration of war." The trailer suggested that Harry and Meghan will confront rumors about their difficult relationship with senior royals head-on.

The second one was labeled "more of the same" by critics, who said that they were "sick of hearing complaints." Harry claimed that insiders "leaked and planted" stories. He described royal life as a "dirty game."
