These days in Britain very little unites the right and the left. “Harry & Meghan,” the heartwarming Netflix series released Thursday, is fast shaping up to be an exception.
The first three episodes of the documentaries, Directed by Liz Garbus And co-produced by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s production company, they were quickly skewered by a bipartisan array of critics, from The Sun to The Guardian. Although the “jamming” may not actually capture the harshness of some of the comments.
Who are the biggest victims in the world now? You might think they are poor Ukraine They were bombed, shot, and raped by Putin’s invading barbarians. Or those whose lives have been devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to cause widespread death and long-term illness.

Mangan notes that the series so far has plenty of sweet moments – particularly of Prince Harry and Meghan “being charming and funny together” – but ultimately finds the final product wanting:
But in the end – what are we left with? Exactly the same story we’ve always known, told the way we expect to hear it from the people who tell it. Those who don’t care won’t watch. Those who care—meaning voyeuristically invested in the reality soap opera—will still read into it whatever they want and no doubt confirm all of their previous thoughts.

Which means – it’s hard to see who would really benefit from this, other than the media, the bad guys at work?
