Business as usual for royals despite Harry and Meghan documentary, sources say

Top members of the Royal Family have insisted they will adopt a “business as usual” approach to their duties amid the storm surrounding Harry and Meghan’s new Netflix documentary, according to sources close to Buckingham Palace.

The fallout from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming series, titled Harry & Meghan. A Netflix Global Event, had been expected to rock The Firm with the trailer hinting at several bombshells that could be exposed.

It showed Meghan in floods of tears whilst contrasting a stern-looking Kate Middleton from the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey in 2019, with Harry admitting: "No one sees what's happening behind closed doors".

But sources inside Buckingham Palace say senior royals will remain stoic in the face of the saga.

"We are not going to be blown off course by squalls from across the Atlantic," one source told the Daily Mail.

Whilst another insider added: "It's likely to be a difficult few weeks, but really after that what on Earth more can they have to say?"

The insider claimed Harry and Meghan risked "hawking around the same complaints on talk shows and documentaries.

"Surely a time will come when even they realise they have got to get on with their lives? The rest of the family certainly want to."

The upcoming Netflix documentary, set to be released on December 8, could also see the controversial royal couple address topics including Harry’s trauma following the death of Princess Diana and the much-publicised affair between Charles and Diana.

Another topic that Buckingham Palace will be bracing for is an elaboration on the allegations of racism that were already raised in an infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.

But despite carrying on duties in the face of the royal storm, senior officials are reportedly set to swiftly rebuke any claims made in the show that they see as untrue.
