Harry and Meghan get the internet talking with their new ITV documentary

Last night ITV aired their new documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey about the lives of HRH Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. The documentary explored their heavily publicised struggles with the media and the impact it has had on their mental wellbeing and family life.

A clip from the documentary went viral this weekend and a trending hashtag #WeLoveYouMeghan was in the UK top trends.

While reactions to the clip were generally positive, their interviews in the documentary have received mixed reactions.

In the documentary, Meghan said: “When I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy. But my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.’”

The documentary comes amid news that Meghan is suing the Mail on Sunday for their publication of a private letter to her father. The Mail o Sunday has repeatedly published stories about the royals’ personal lives, including staged photographs of her father in an internet cafe learning about the couple’s engagement.

The Mail on Sunday responded to the lawsuit. They said: “The Mail on Sunday stands by the story it published and will be defending this case vigorously. Specifically, we categorically deny that the Duchess’s letter was edited in any way that changed its meaning.”
