Harry and Meghan, 41, last month lifted the lid on their experiences in the British royal family in a Netflix docuseries about the reasons behind their stunning 2020 departure to North America.

“If they feel it’s better to somehow keep us as villains, they’ve shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile,” he said, without specifying who “they” were.
“I would like to have my father back. I’d like my brother back,’ said Harry.
Prior to the publication of his memoir on January 10, the prince gave an interview to the British network ITV and another to the United States’ CBS, which will be broadcast on Sunday.
The criticism comes in the run-up to King Charles’ coronation on May 6 following the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, on September 8 last year at the age of 96.
The Netflix docuseries that aired in six episodes in December gave the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, their formal titles, the chance to give their reasons for leaving for California.

The couple accused the royal family of lying and not knowing how to protect them.
Harry also said “it was terrifying to have my brother yell at me” at a 2020 family summit in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Sussexes also accuse William and his wife Kate of being behind the negative media coverage as they allegedly wanted to keep the spotlight.
According to the Sunday Times, Harry’s book focuses more on William than Charles.
