U.S. MEDIA SLAM HARRY AND MEGHAN’S $100M “SNOOZEFEST” NETFLIX DOCUSERIES AS A “HYPOCRITICAL ATTENTION GRAB” IN WHICH THE SUSSEXES SHOW “JUST HOW PINCHED AND UNIMAGINATIVE THEIR PRESENCE ON THE WORLD STAGE HAS BECOME” — “A ROYAL PITY PARTY”

Meghan appears to perform a deeply exaggerated curtsey recounting what it was like when she first met the Queen, while her husband Harry watches on awkwardly

U.S. MEDIA SLAM HARRY AND MEGHAN’S $100M “SNOOZEFEST” NETFLIX DOCUSERIES AS A “HYPOCRITICAL ATTENTION GRAB” IN WHICH THE SUSSEXES SHOW “JUST HOW PINCHED AND UNIMAGINATIVE THEIR PRESENCE ON THE WORLD STAGE HAS BECOME” — “A ROYAL PITY PARTY”; Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, says, this documentary should be called ‘Meghan and Harry.’ Queen Jezebel (Meghan) and hen-pecked, controlled and dominated King Ahab (Harry) have allowed their ego to destroy them completely with this dumb documentary. It is a waste of money and time, and former “Prince-Duke” Harry has effectively allowed his wife to strip him of what made him attracted to her in the first place, and no man should ever allow a woman to do that to him. That, coupled with the fact that she is a divorced woman who has already been married to another man will eventually destroy this marriage. 

 

  • Descriptions range from ‘A Royal Pity Party’ to a ‘Dull Diary Entry’. One review is less diplomatic: ‘A hypocritical attention grab’
  • Variety is surprised by ‘just how narrow their vision of their fame is, how pinched and unimaginative their presence on the world stage has become’
  • The Wall Street Journal declares: ‘A viewer really has to be on board the royal soap-opera bus not to be bored out of one’s mind’
  • Viewers at home have also written off the series in no uncertain terms with Rotten Tomatoes showing a measly audience score of just 15 percent on Friday
  • The reception is a hammer blow to the couple, who presumably imagined the world would be enchanted by their inside story

The reviews are in for Harry and Meghan’s hotly-anticipated, $100m Netflix tell-all – and US critics are less than impressed.

Descriptions range from ‘A Royal Pity Party’ to a ‘Dull Diary Entry’. One summary is less diplomatic: ‘A hypocritical attention grab’.

The reception is a hammer blow to the couple, who presumably imagined the world would be enchanted by the inside story of their departure from Britain’s royal family.

Viewers at home have also written off the series in no uncertain terms. Rotten Tomatoes showed a measly audience score of just 15 percent on Friday morning after nearly 1,000 reviews – most of them one star.

Descriptions from armchair critics ranged from ‘unbelievably boring’ and ‘dog toffee’ to ‘vomit inducing’ and ‘raging narcissism’.

Variety’s review expresses surprise at ‘just how narrow their vision of their fame is, how pinched and unimaginative their presence on the world stage has become’.

Under the headline ‘Harry & Meghan Rehashes the Royal-Family Drama, One More Time’, the couple are described as ‘honor-bound to keep reciting their personal story until we eventually lose interest’.

The opening three episodes are panned for rehashing the issues which Harry and Meghan have opined upon repeatedly since they departed Britain in January 2020: how they met, Meghan’s relationship with her family, and her difficulty integrating into the royal family.
