Harry and Meghan Netflix LIVE: Streaming giant furious over 'fake' videos used in trailers

Netflix bosses are said to be furious that “fake” footage has been featured in the Harry and Meghan trailers in the lead-up to the show being released today.

Some of the footage that appeared to show the pair being hounded by the press was actually from other events – including the Harry Potter premiere and the Katie Price trial.

A TV insider told The Sun: “Netflix chiefs expected the couple to flag any problems. Now the feel of ‘fakery’ has swirled around the show before it’s aired.”

One photograph of Harry apparently frustrated with the press was taken when he was with his former girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, who was cropped out of the picture.

The insider added: “The feeling is that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have been more aware than anyone what footage was real and what could be highlighted as misleading.

“Netflix chiefs were unaware just how much of the imagery that was put in the trailers was dubious and expected the couple to scrutinise them and flag anything that could cause problems.

“And it comes just as they recover from claims they exaggerated and fabricated royal stories in the past five series of their big royal drama, The Crown.”
