In the final episode of Harry & Meghan, the bombshell six-part docu-series, the Duke of Sussex revealed how difficult attending Prince Philip’s funeral was for him as it came so soon after a difficult few months between him and members of the Royal Family. Although he spoke with his father and brother, King Charles and Prince William, it appears reconciliation between them remains uncertain, as Harry has now said that he will “never” get the apology he feels he and Meghan Markle deserve.

In the final episode of the documentary, Harry told how “hard” it was attending the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April last year. 

The Sussexes had officially left the monarchy by then — back in March 2020 — but the following year, a month before Prince Philip’s death, the tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey was due to be released. 

In the final episode of Harry & Meghan, Harry spoke about returning to the UK for the funeral of his grandfather and meeting with Charles and William to talk about the things that had come to pass in the weeks and months before after the ceremony. It was a period in which tensions were perhaps the highest they had been in years. 

The talks, Harry claimed, did not go well. He hinted that there was a complete misunderstanding between himself and Meghan and the rest of the upper echelons of the Firm, saying that Charles and William were both “focused on the misinterpretation of the whole situation”. 

He said: “It was hard. Especially spending time, having chats with my brother and my father.

“None of us really wanted to talk about it at my grandfather’s funeral but we did. I’ve had to make peace with the fact that we’re probably never going to get genuine accountability or a genuine apology. My wife and I – we’re moving on. We’re focused on what’s coming next.”

Just before the couple sat down with Oprah — a month before Philip died — an article was published revealing that Buckingham Palace would be investigating allegations made by royal aides that Meghan had bullied her staff. 

It was claimed that those who worked for the Duchess described themselves as the “Sussex Survivors Club”, with The Times journalist Valentine Low reporting that some were left “shaking” and feeling “sick”. 

This was dismissed by the Sussexes as a “calculated smear campaign based on misleading and harmful misinformation”. 

James Holt, the executive director of the Sussexes’ company, Archewell, told the docu-series: “The timing of the bullying story has even been admitted by the journalist that wrote it, that it was done explicitly because of the Oprah interview.”

It was announced in June this year that Buckingham Palace’s findings of the investigation will remain private as those involved need “confidentiality”. 

Then, the couple’s Oprah interview was released. It saw several revelations about their time as senior royals. Meghan told the documentary that they spoke to her in order to “fill in the blanks that other people were filling in for them”.

While the Duchess had thought the “biggest takeaway” would be her revelation that she had had suicidal ideation while pregnant, she said it was “eclipsed” by the conversation surrounding race as a Firm member had asked questions about “how dark” Archie’s skin was going to be when he was born. 

However, both refused to name names, as it would have been “very damaging” to the culprit with Harry vowing that he would never reveal who it was.

In response to the interview, a statement on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II was released which said the Monarch was “saddened” to hear the “full extent” of their difficulties. 

Throughout the docu-series, Harry hit out at the Firm and the “extraordinary institutional gaslighting” that he claimed takes place. 

Although Harry told the documentary that he would miss both the “weird” family gatherings, the UK, and his friends – some of whom he has lost in the process of his leaving his stepping back – he is happy with his decision to move abroad and live a more normal life in Montecito, California. 

He added: “I came here because I was changed, I changed to the point [where] I’d outgrown my environment therefore this was the most obvious place to come. 

“It’s one of the places where I think my mum [Princess Diana] was going to end up living potentially.”

According to PA media, Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace will not be commenting on Harry & Meghan.  

The entire docu-series is available on Netflix now.
