Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's documentary series trailers reportedly included "fake" footage, and so Netflix bosses are angry.

The series includes imagery of photographers clamouring at the couple at public events. It was revealed to have been taken at a Harry Potter film premiere and of TV personality Katie Price arriving at court, reported The Sun. A source said that Netflix chiefs expected the couple to flag any problems, and now the "feel of ‘fakery’ has swirled around the show before it’s aired.”

One picture of Harry apparently facing the press was taken when he was with his former girlfriend Chelsy Davy. She was cropped out of the photograph. A source said that the feeling is that Harry and Meghan "would have been more aware than anyone what footage was real and what could be highlighted as misleading." The source added that Netflix bosses were unaware just how much of the imagery that was put in the trailers was "dubious and expected the couple to scrutinize them and flag anything that could cause problems." The insider noted that this comes just as they recover from claims that they "exaggerated and fabricated royal stories in the past five series of their big royal drama, 'The Crown.'”

Meanwhile, Express reported that the royals fired back as one source said that "no one was approached" for the documentary. Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace confirmed that they did get an email purporting to be from a third-party production company from an unknown organization's address. They tried to verify its authenticity with Archewell Productions and Netflix, but they never got a response.

As for the content of the docuseries, Harry and his wife have stuck to a familiar script. It chronicles the couple’s estrangement from the British Royal Family, chastises Britain’s press and the societal racism, reported the Associated Press. In the first three episodes of “Harry and Meghan,” the symbiotic relationship between tabloid newspapers and the Royal Family is dissected. The history of racism across the British Empire, and how it persists is also examined.

When the couple left the royal life almost three years ago, the media’s treatment of Meghan, and what the two felt was a lack of sympathy from royal institutions about the coverage, were at the heart of their complaints.
