It’s not even out yet, but the upcoming Netflix series about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is already under scrutiny.
Six-part documentary titled Harry and Meganwill release the first three episodes on Dec. 8, and on Tuesday, the streamer will share a second trailer that further teases the revelation of the b*mbshell.
But attention quickly turned to a series of “misleading” photos used in the trailer, as several moments were revealed to have been taken from completely different events.
The last one called was a photo of Harry being hounded by the British press:
The snap is actually a cropped 2007 photo of the Duke of Suss*x with his ex-girlfriend of seven, Chelsea Davy, despite being a documentary about his relationship with Meghan, 41.
In the original photo, the Prince hugs Davy while protecting her from a media altercation at Heathrow Airport.
Body language expert Jesús Enrique Rosas pointed out the mistake on Twitter, writing: “You just can’t come up with this sh*t.”
Photos from the premiere of Harry Potter
It comes after it was revealed on Monday that another photo in the trailer, showing a gaggle of paparazzi supposedly ready to take pictures of the Duke and Duchess of Suss*x, was actually taken at the airport. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows The premiere of the second part in 2011.
This was announced by royal expert Ingrid Seward. Sun: “I don’t think Harry would understand, but Netflix was careless here as it weakens Harry’s comment about protecting his family. This fake photo weakens his point of view.”
According to the publication, the photo was the first result of a search for the keyword “paparazzi” on the leading stock image site Alamy.
“Intrusive” photo approved
A journalist lashed out at the Suss*xes and Netflix after a photo of Meghan and Harry with then-child Archie looked ‘intrusive’.
The photo in question was taken during Meghan and Harry’s infamous royal tour of South Africa in late 2019 and appears to show the royal trio during a retreat at Archbishop Tutu’s residence in Cape Town as the camera lens cuts out what appears to be imposing figure in the frame. left corner.
Evening standard Royal editor Robert Jobson on Twitter called the use of the photo “a complete travesty”, saying the moment was taken by an accredited, pre-approved pool of photographers.
The press pack is chasing other celebrities
In the trailer, released on Tuesday, Harry, 38, can be heard referring to the d*ath of his mother, Princess Diana, and saying, “I was horrified… I didn’t want history to repeat itself.” Suss*x.
But Urban Pictures’ Twitter photo account claims that the subject in this particular photo was British personality Katie Price, who was followed by the press after she left court last December.
A separate photo in the trailer shows another frenzied press package that turns out to have been taken in New York as former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen left his apartment in 2019.
The paparazzi were photographed when Cohen was serving time in prison for financial crimes.
The photo was taken in 1938.
Elsewhere, a photo of a group of children waving Union Jack flags behind a cordoned off rope led viewers to believe the kids were looking forward to meeting Meghan and Harry.
But it turned out that the photo was taken in 1938 during the royal engagement to Queen Mary in Brixton, south London.
It’s undeniable that Meghan and Harry’s relationship has been the subject of relentless media interest, but the use of unrelated photos and visions in the trailer, combined with Harry’s condemning statements like, “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.” did little to build their confidence.
When will Harry and Meghan air?
The first three episodes will air on Netflix on December 8th, with the last three episodes coming out a week later on December 15th.
The documentary biography has also been updated: “In an unprecedented and comprehensive documentary series, the Duke and Duchess of Suss*x tell the other side of their high-profile love story.

“From critically acclaimed, two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director Liz Garbus. Harry and Megan is a never-before-seen look at one of the most talked about couples in history.”
