Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, aired on ITV this weekend and many have praised the couple for their openness and honesty. They have been heavily criticised in the past, whether for their use of private jets or their Frogmore Cottage home renovations, but the interviews gave the public an insight into what life is really like for the Sussexes.
The couple spoke to reporter Tom Bradby (who joined them on their royal tour in Africa last month) about their lives behind the scenes, with Harry admitting that camera flashes remind him of his mother’s death and Meghan speaking candidly about how she is coping with the pressure of being a newlywed and new mother in the spotlight. The documentary has been eye-opening for both royal fans and critics, and many are defending the couple on social media.
But another subject that Harry decided to touch on was his relationship with Prince William. There have been rumours of a royal ‘feud’ between the brothers – Harry and Meghan officially split from William and Kate’s royal household, William and Kate removed the Sussexes names from their charity, and the ‘Fab Four’ as they were previously known no longer live close by in the Kensington Palace area.
Talking to Bradby during the documentary, Harry said: ‘We are brothers. We will always be brothers. We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me.
‘We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we are so busy but I love him dearly. The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days.’
So there you have it.
