Harry & Meghan: What is the overall reception so far?
In her review for Deadline, Stephanie Bunbury found the series lacking in terms of interesting content, saying that the audience would be “feeling shortchanged by Volume I.” On the other hand, writing for Variety, Daniel D’Addario believed the series suffered from “a sort of narrative stuckness, an inability or lack of desire to find the next thing to say that we haven’t yet heard.” He added that “speaking in their own voice about issues other than their personal experience would have represented a good start.” On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an overall score of 38% from critics whereas the audience gave an overall score of 15% with a 912 user rating. On IMDb, the series has an overall score of 3.2/10 with 2,542 votes.
In addition to this, the teaser included a picture of the couple taken inside Buckingham Palace, for which palace staff members wrote a letter of complaint because the Queen’s permission had not been obtained beforehand. Another picture was a black-and-white picture of a group of photographers pointing long lenses at something, which was later identified as having been taken at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 premiere in July 2011. These are just some of the many misuses of images and other inconsistencies that we have mentioned here and this has led to controversies and debates on media outlets, making the viewers raise crucial questions on various social media platforms.
Harry & Meghan Part 1: A Quick Recap
Harry & Meghan is an American documentary series streaming on Netflix, starring Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. According to Netflix, 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.

Volume I Episode 3: The couple’s 2017 engagement sparks both cynicism and hope. As Meghan grapples with royal protocols, tabloid headlines begin to involve her family.
“It has been a privilege to be able to work with Harry and Meghan, who bravely allowed themselves to be vulnerable by sharing their personal stories and archive,” Garbus says. “I hope that when Netflix viewers press play, whatever preconceptions people have, they will be open to the discovery of what we’ve shared in this documentary series. It’s an incredible love story set against the context of huge stakes and their journey is a historical event that will be examined for a long time to come.”
“We are grateful to have the ability to share our love story through such an esteemed creative team and with the global reach of Netflix,” said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. “We hope it helps others to heal, and to feel inspired.”
