Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix docuseries is the streaming platform’s second-highest ranked documentary ever, it has been revealed.

The Sussexes starred in the self-titled show that gave an insight into their lives following their departure from frontline royal duties.

Damaging claims were made about the Royal Family throughout the six-part series, such as Harry stating Kensington Palace “lied to protect my brother”.

The Duke of Sussex made the claim in regards to a statement issued denying a story William had bullied him out of the Royal Family.

Fourth quarter earnings from the streaming giant were unveiled on Thursday and they make for positive reading for Netflix, having reported a 7.7 million subscriber gain during the October-December period.

The stretch included the new ad-supported subscription option, priced at £5.65 per month.

The news comes as Harry’s controversial memoir Spare became the fastest-selling non-fiction book in the UK since records began in 1998.

Nielsen BookData claims Spare sold 467,183 copies in its first week.

Harry claims in the memoir that he was physically attacked by the Prince of Wales and mocked his panic attacks.

The Duke added in his promotional interviews that he “would like nothing more” than for his children to have relationships with the royals.

He also called his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, a “guardian angel” who is with him “all the time”.
