Harry & Meghan starts with the love story of these young and free-spirited individuals. The focus gradually shifts to how the press came to know about it, Meghan being judged because of her race, them being followed by the paparazzi, and the tabloids serving spicy yet false rumors. 

A parallel between Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, and Meghan is drawn. She is a lot like her and might have suffered the same fate had the appropriate steps not been taken. This is the thing that Prince Harry dreaded because he wanted his family to be secure. There are many revelations, but none which should be made a fuss about.

Living a royal life sure comes with a lot of benefits, but there’s always a darker side to every aspect. Since their childhood, Prince Harry and Prince William had been a constant subject of amusement for the media personnel. They weren’t even allowed to grow up as free individuals. This thing about the media being ruthless in the UK (even in other parts of the world) shakes the very core of our Prince Harry and influenced his mandatory decisions. We make quick judgments but learn from this series that we are no one to pass judgment. It is the people who want that spicy news, the media serves it, but the impact on the people who’re subjected to it goes unnoticed.

Everyone should watch the series to know the reality of the scrutiny the royals face. All the unwanted attention and judgments just because they’re public figures don’t justify the fact that they’re not entitled to their private life and space. Watching those honest confessions and learning the harsh reality that they had to go through was shattering. It’s high time that the public starts to view the royals as individuals and doesn’t judge them for the choices they make. 

All the interviews with Harry and Meghan, and with their close friends opened my eyes to see them beyond their royal status and titles. I love the way they call each other M and H. It just felt too personal. The right to privacy is a basic thing and everything doesn’t need to be recorded to publish. Looking at how tabloids destroyed their peace of mind and interfered with their rights to private life, was heartbreaking. 

Some people might question the need for making this documentary, and they have every right to do that. But look at the broader perspective and understand the fact that at one point it becomes really necessary to take one step forward and tell the world what they had been going through while the tabloids were busy making money out of them.

The death of Princess Diana had an impact on Prince Harry and he didn’t want his wife to suffer the same fate, even if it meant that he would no longer be a part of the world’s oldest monarch family. Many reviews on the internet are surfacing about how it's a declaration of war or that this shouldn’t have been done. Again the same mistakes people, we are not here to judge the couple that sacrificed everything for the love they shared.

Final Score – [8/10]
