According to British journalist and former politician Nigel Paul Farage, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are “as despicable as each other.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are working on two major projects: his memoir “Spare” and their Netflix docuseries. Farage appeared on “Paul Murray Live” on Sky News Australia and responded to a question about the Sussexes’ docuseries.
During their conversation, Paul Murray asked the GB News presenter about the Sussexes’ reported “creative differences” with the director of their docuseries. Murray speculated on “which of those marriages they may have had creative differences.”
“Yeah, not hard to work that out, is it really? I mean, clearly, clearly, clearly Harry is now regretting much of what they’ve said in this Netflix documentary.”
“Although still happy to go with Meghan, to get an award in New York for calling his own family racist, I mean, they’re both just about as despicable as each other.”
The International Business Times was unable to confirm Farage’s claims independently.
Farage may refer to the new awards the Sussexes will receive next month. According to Yahoo! News, the royal couple will receive the prestigious human rights Ripple of Hope award on December 6 at a gala in New York for their “heroic” stance against “structural racism” in the royal family.
There are numerous controversies surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming docuseries on Netflix. According to an insider, the Duke of Sussex’s book contradicted his wife’s statement in their documentary in October.
An anonymous senior Netflix source said to Page Six:
“A lot in the show contradicted what Harry has written, so that was an issue. Then Harry and Meghan made significant requests [to filmmakers] to walk back content they themselves have provided for their own project.”
Another source stated that they had a falling out with the original director. Garrett Bradley, an Oscar nominee, was reportedly hired by the Sussexes for the project. But they weren’t on board with her idea of filming at home.
Liz Garbus was brought on board. Unfortunately, they reportedly still had disagreements with Garbus and Netflix executives about the content of their show.
In an interview with Variety, Markle appeared to address the misunderstanding.
“It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I’ve long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it. But that’s not why we’re telling it. We’re trusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens.”
The docuseries will be available on Netflix on December 8.
