Prince Harry took swipes at his older brother Prince William "with the subtlety of a Panzer division" in the new Netflix documentary released alongside Meghan Markle.
The first volume of the self-titled Harry and Meghan deep-dive was released yesterday, December 9, and it contained their takes on relationships with the Royal Family.
It also included two barely veiled digs at Prince William from his younger brother, according to royal critic Daniela Elser.

"There is hardly anything much new in the series, aside from a literal trove of Harry and Meghan’s family snappy snaps being splayed out on screen for our nosy pleasure, however the one person Harry took two swipes at with the subtlety of a Panzer division was William," she complained in her online column for News.com.au.
In the first episode, Harry says: “I think, for so many people in the family, especially obviously the men, there can be a temptation or an urge to marry someone who would fit in the mould as opposed to somebody who you perhaps are destined to be with.”
Elser added that the second dig came when Harry spoke about Meghan's treatment from the press in the early days of their relationship.
"It was almost like a rite of passage. Some of the members of the family were like, but ‘My wife had to go through that. So why should your girlfriend be treated any differently? Why should you get special treatment? Why should she be protected?’"
Elser said William is a "forgotten victim in this sorry saga".
A friend of the Cambridges gave an interview to the Daily Beast on the brothers' apparently declining relationship.

“It’s hard to imagine how devastating the last three years have been for William. The brothers were so close, they had such an incredible bond," they said.
"It’s impossible really to express what a massive, terrible, ongoing headache this has been for William in the past few years.”
The unnamed source said that the Royal Family balmes Meghan for the downturn in relations.
“The family blames Meghan for it all, really. They absolutely f**king hate her, basically. It’s a huge disaster,” they said.
But not content with saying Meghan was the route cause, the source said William "really hates" the pair.
"Everyone warned him off her but he wouldn’t listen, and she just ripped him away. The bond is gone, completely gone and this film is just the latest betrayal. William really, really, really hates both of them now," they said.
The "whole family life has been ruined by Meghan," they added, as Elser added that "sadly some smashed avo and a few sun salutations aren’t going to fix this mess."
