Prince Harry needs to think carefully about a prolonged schedule with a skilled therapeutic counselor psychologist.

I have only viewed the first episode, Harry has a pathological morbid paranoda, hatred of the media.

Harry loss of his Mother, and the tragic circumstances surrounding the loss, might account for such a condition.

That was excruciating to view.

Nothing positive, self centered, victim focused.

If he hates the media so much why is he airing his dirty laundry for everyone to see? Right, no more taxpayer pocket money from daddy and no discernible skills so… Netflix. People love watching a train wreck! I get that he has a mother complex but kind of creepy the way he compares his wife to his mom. He’s like a stunted warped angry self entitled man child who never grew up. The guy needs serious psychotherapy.

I was raised in authoritarian countries, and so I not only believe in a free press, but also understand the need for it. But I also believe that constant harassment of individuals, especially celebrity types for the purpose of tabloids does not fall under free speech. The public does not have a right to know.

What is paramount to a free press is complete access to political discourse, more transparency with regards to political contributions, and economic and political debates that make for a more informed and engaged society.

But the harassment that celebrity types suffer so that the magazines can sell more copies is not only a violation of their privacy and human rights, but also extremely harmful to a free and democratic society, because it gives the ILLUSION of free speech while at the same time using the tabloids as a smokescreen to hide the TRUE issues that affect us all.

I have viewed all three episodes, it's an embarrassment, soaked to the skin with identity politics.

The constant need to weaponize the accusations of racism is disingenuous deceit.

A toxic victim mentality, aided by a necessity to inculpate, smear ones own loved ones, family.

Harry life has been the definition of entitlement, privilege. Yet Harry is unable to full appreciate the bestowed wealth is unearned and may I suggest unwarranted.

The toxic self centered, self-absorbed shamelessness is breathtaking to witness.

Utter Dribble.

I haven't watched the program but am British and try to keep up with current affairs in the UK.

MM is clearly the victim of racism. It is racist to refer to black Americans as "gangster". This is only funny if you think casual racism is funny. How funny you find it will also be highly proportionate to the number of non-white people you have in your family or close circle. However, MM still resides at a position near the top of the privilege tree. There are far bigger victims of racism in the UK than MM, and that's where people's focus should be placed. The white woman who married the other prince got accusations of being "common" and a "social climber", so there is a strong feeling of the Royal Family being there partly as a free hit for judgement by the public. They are a soap opera for public entertainment. No amount of "we are humans too" will stop people gossiping about them.

Isn't Harry the image of his father.

How is it possible to judge without enough amount of data?

I do not sympathise with the couple nor with the royals. But I want to be as fair as humanly possible. If I had enough data on their brains workings and all the circumstances, I do not think I will be able to process it, hence my reluctance to judge.

Black = black. White = white. Nothing can change until black+white=grey+yellow=brown+other colours=biege =

end of racism. That may take time until at least 3030

= racism destroyed.

When the whinging attacks on the Royal Family, media, and nearly everyone else have stopped, with the racism accusation based on an unsubstantiated comment attributed anonymously, what else have this ex-squaddie and Z-lister briefcase girl got to offer?

Does he still want 23 million pounds each year from his 'father' the King to support their lifestyle?

What happened to his job as 'chimpo', the Chief Impact Officer' at the on-line mental health app company?

This pair of sanctimonious narcissists know nothing of the real world, such as the worries of ordinary people who are wondering how they are going to able to afford to heat their homes and put food on the table.

Markle never fooled me for a minute, especially after the politically correct media began harping on about her skin colour. It provided this hideously opportunistic 'Z' rated actress with the perfect chance to adopt the role of 'victim'. As for her emasculated husband, he is a disgrace to both his family and his country.

Time to remove the royal titles.

Btw just because Memememegan asked the Queen whether she could live in Windsor castle dressed as a princess surrounded by servants after the marriage to Prince Numpty and the Queen burst out laughing and said no doesn't make the Queen a racist.

If he toe the line he would not need for money. His grandee would off leave him a very nice slice of her inheritance cake but he did what his mother was going to do but never got to do that is to bestow and introduce a new and definitely the wrong genes into the Windsor blue bloodline.

I wouldn't watch this garbage - I'm not that sad!

But one gets the impression there were elements in the royal family - and British press - that didn't want a part black woman joining The Firm. Harry is lashing out - and picking up a nice pay day to do so.

Cue-ball William and old Charlie won't be happy - that's for sure!

Haven't watched this, won't be watching it - life isn't long enough.

It's all a bit tiresome; if everyone doesn't tell them they're lovely and throw money at them, it must be because everyone is racist. Gimme a break.

a racially charged brooch worn by Princess Michael of Kent

It was actually quite a nice brooch, went well with the coat she was wearing. A lot of Blackamoor artwork can be described as racist, in that it depicts black men in positions of servitude or slavery. Princess Michael's brooch was not; it was simply a head-and-shoulders image of someone decked out in what appears to be a very regal outfit, who happens to have black skin. If that is OMG Racist, next thing people will be saying little black girls cannot play with Barbie dolls cos that's racist too. Them Barbie dolls depict all white women as being deformed airheads.

"So much of what Meghan is and how she is, is so similar to my mum. She has the same compassion. She has the same empathy. She has the same confidence. She has this warmth about her,"

So Ginger superimposes his mummy complex on his wife. Maybe she treats him as a child. That's a bit disturbing. Not healthy.

For a couple who supposedly get so upset over the media "feeding frenzy", they seem to be trying really hard to stay in the limelight.

Harry, Megan, please just go away, get proper jobs and live your lives out of the spotlight, like you say you want to.

I am sad enough the view all three episodes twice.

I will endeavour to have counselling. my Mother even suggested a local therapist.

I am intrigued by Meghan Markle's political motivation, objectives.

All the schmaltzy balony about loves lost dream, finding her prince is more smoke and mirrors

No, Meghan has a gift for opportunity and the ability to leverage that moment.

Meghan plays hapless Harry like a cello.

Harry is the perfect ladder, to propel Meghan political career.

I was born with a cynical streak. I admit it.

Markle has an agenda, political, and has fixed her sights as the first black female US President.

UK media has gone into overdrive with Harrys focus on the monarchy.

Here...

Harry went on to claim there was a "huge level of unconscious bias" within the family, with the documentary referencing a racially charged brooch worn by Princess Michael of Kent to an event that Meghan attended in 2017.

Meghan has well a view point.....

did you ever think that it’s got nothing to do with her colour or race. Maybe they didn't want a selfish self centred egotistical drama queen joining The Firm.

Harry objects to the media frenzy by broadcasting his own media frenzy. More publicity for him and his washed up actress wife.

Randy Andy put himself into his pickle. Harry and Meghan and the 21st Century 'Edward and Mrs. Simpson'.

“I Think…She Would Seriously Consider Running for President”: Inside Meghan Markle’s Political Ambitions

By taking a royal title, Meghan has given up her US citizenship. OTOH, she always (even as a little girl) has had Disneyesque fantasies of becoming a princess/royalty and she has become just that. But she gave up everything, sold her soul to get there. As obsessive as Katie Holmes was to Tom Cruise. Now she ain't WORKING at anything at all either.

Now Meghan and Ginger Prince are finding that the 'glamorous life' isn't so..... pretty.

Somebody (perhaps Sir Raymond Douglas Davies) needs to tell these two whiners to stop their sobbing!
