Royal expert SLAMS Meghan and Harry for 'hate' fuelled attacks - 'Playing the race card'

The pair have also been accused of playing the 'race card' by another expert

HARRY & Meghan's Netflix documentary lacked any explosive new revelations about the Royal Family according to a leading royal commentator.

The pair have also been accused of playing the "race card" by another expert who believes the biggest allegations are still yet to emerge and will come in later episodes.

Jennie Bond told GB News: “It was all rather underwhelming. I spent two or three hours of my life this morning looking at it all.

“And you know, if in these times of crisis and cost of living and the rest of it we are interested in the minutiae of a charming love story, then this is for you.

“But what we learned was, you know how they met and how he was late on the first date. It was underpinned by a simmering resentment against all the media, on both sides of the Atlantic actually, and a lot of talk about race and racial bias and unconscious bias.

“I think it is an important topic, but as for explosive revelations or attacks on the Royal Family, no, they weren't really there.”

She told Patrick Christys: “I don't think they want a way back. They're very happy in the lives that they've got out there.

“What I'd like to know is why they've done this. The first trailer opened with, ‘why are you making this documentary’? We still haven't really got the answer to that, beyond Meghan saying, ‘well, people might like to hear it from our own mouths’.

Royal biographer Ingrid Seward added: “I think they're really playing the race card because that seems to be their modus operandi for all this, apart from trying to slightly change their love story.

“I think one of the newspapers that they hate, The Sun, has rolled out five inconsistencies…I think that they're building up to the last series when they're going to attack the Palace and the people that worked there for being racist.”

On the idea that the Royal Family is racist, she told GB News: “Well, Harry's done a few sort of what you could call racist things but I think he does say that it was the worst thing he felt he'd ever done and he was deeply, deeply sorry.

“It took him a long time to recover from that and I think we have to forgive him for that. He was young and crazy and he thought it would be funny and he really paid for his mistake. Harry kind of admits that he was an unconscious racist, simply because he didn't know any better.

“I think that's what he's trying to say. But sometimes it's really difficult to understand what either of them say.”
