A senior US TV host has blasted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s forthcoming Netflix documentary, amid growing signs of a backlash against the couple in the States.Martha MacCallum, who hosts a prime-time Fox News show, bemoaned the wasted opportunity for Harry and Meghan to be a force for good. The leading US TV host responded to the explosive trailer for the forthcoming Netflix documentary series about the Sussexes. She said that the couple had “such an opportunity to do the kind of work they said they wanted to do,” but they seemed focused on “staying in the limelight”.

The Sussexes were accused of attempts to “sabotage” the Prince and Princess of Wales’s high-profile visit to the USA this week with the timing of the trailer.

The decision to issue a trailer to the show on the second day of their tour of Boston was seen as a “declaration of war,” according to the Daily Mail.

Referencing a line Meghan says in the trailer, Ms MacCallum said:”What does she mean when she says, the stakes are this high? Do people really care?

“Netflix has spent a lot of money, millions of dollars, so they need to ramp this up.”

Ms MacCallum told Fox viewers: “It is no coincidence that it dropped on the day of the Waleses trip that they have planned for so long.

“There was all this talk during the funeral that they might be able to mend fences.

“But it is more clear than ever that there is absolutely no effort on behalf of Harry and Meghan to do so. They are not looking to mend fences.

“They had such an opportunity to do the kind of work they said they wanted to do as part of the family.

“But they walked away from all of that, and now they are just trying to stay in the limelight.”

Royal commentator Neil Sean, who appeared on the programme, responded: “People over here are just perplexed.

“You have gone from being in the world’s most prestigious family to drop yourself into the lower levels of reality TV.

“Are we that intrigued? Have we not seen it all before?”

This comes as Prince William is poised to challenge Harry and Meghan head-on if they smear the Royal Family again in their new series, according to Richard Palmer, the royal correspondent for the Daily Express.

Palace officials are gearing up to mount a briefing war should their worst fears about the £88million Netflix show come true.

Senior aides have been told to watch the six-part series like hawks and issue a swift rebuttal to any dubious claims.

In a “back-off” message to his brother and wife, he has ditched the long-standing royal mantra of “never complain, never explain”.
