Piers Morgan Slammed For Exposing His Lack Of Understanding About Privacy When Attacking Harry And Meghan Netflix Trailer

By Lucy Caulkett–

Piers Morgan has been criticised for failing to understanding the meaning of privacy before blasting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, following the release of the trailer for their brand-new Netflix documentary series.

The former Good Morning Britain presenter took to Twitter to share his anger over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s documentary, as they tell their side of the story in a new bombshell series, sure to rock the boat again. Netflix are reported to have paid $100 million (£88 million) to the pair to capture the fly-on-the-wall series.

The explosive trailer was released on Thursday ahead of the release next week, sparking multiple reactions, including Piers Morgan. Piers, who is known for his attack on the couple, branded them “repulsive hypocrites” as he replied to a tweet from Netflix to share the trailer.

Piers has in the past referred to Meghan Markle as a ruthless social climber and accused her of having a selfish agenda when she decided to marry Prince Harry. He is firmly of the view that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on a mission to bring down the royal family and has in the past joined the army of protesters in calling for the couple to be stripped of their royal titles.

The outspoken journalist is not alone in accusing the couple of hypocrisy on one thing or another, but on this occasion has expressed a faulty understanding of privacy in referring to the couple as hypocrites.

Piers wrote: “Imagine bleating about privacy then doing a kiss-and-tell reality series about your private lives? Then imagine preaching compassion as you trash your family again? Then imagine releasing 1st trailer deliberately to ruin your brother’s big trip to America? Repulsive hypocrites.”

However, not everyone agreed with Piers’ view on things and tweeted in reply to him: “It’s not really that difficult to understand, privacy isn’t about people have zero knowledge of your life & living up in the mountains as a hermit. Privacy is YOU having control over what people can know about YOUR life and living your life accordingly.”

Piers indeed showed a lack of proper understanding about privacy, weakening the validity of his point by doing so.

Privacy is defined as the right of persons to be free from unwarranted publicity. Unwarranted appropriation of one’s personality. It is also defined as publicizing one’s private affairs without a legitimate public concern or the protection of personal or private information from misuse or unauthorized disclosure.

Individuals who want privacy are entitled to choose whether and when to court publicity, however, the media is entitled to reveal factual details of any citizen, particularly public figures, if they deem it in the public interest to do so.

Piers Morgan has long had a vendetta against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which became more intense following the couple’s controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

Some of his criticisms against the couple have been deemed legitimate by analysts, but he has been found wanting when making unfounded comments that expose a lack of knowledge and understanding about the topic at hand.

The television presenter was exposed by The Eye Of Media.Com when he wrongly claimed that he was cleared by Ofcom of all the allegations from complainants about his reaction to the Oprah Winfrey.

He erroneously claimed that his right to freedom of expression was being denied when faced with criticism about his attack on Meghan Markle’s claim to feeling suicidal.

The released trailer for Harry and Meghan’s new documentary series by Netflix, features previously unseen black and white photographs of the couple set to music.

They are heard being asked “Why did you want to make this documentary?” to which Harry replies: “No one sees what’s happening behind closed doors.”

He adds: “I had to do everything I could to protect my family” before Meghan is seen wiping away tears.

The trailer ends with Meghan saying: “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”

Images of William and Kate with Harry and Meghan at the Commonwealth Day service in 2020, the Sussexes’ final public appearance as senior working royals, feature among the images.

Among the images featured are joyous images of the couple kissing while Meghan sits on a kitchen counter, as the newlyweds dancing at their wedding, cuddling in a photobooth, and Meghan cradling her baby bump.

The duchess is also pictured during more penive moments, wiping away tears and sitting with her hands covering her face.

Netflix describes the documentary, titled Harry & Meghan, as a “global event” and says it is “coming soon” – reports say it will land on 8 December.

It says the show “explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution”.

The trailer also features commentary from friends, family and royal historians.

It adds: “The series does more than illuminate one couple’s love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other.”

The director, Liz Garbus, is a two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director.

The timing of the trailer has been criticised by critics, having been released while Prince William and Kate Middleton are in Bouston, and during a challenging time for couple amid an unfavourable climate in which the palace has been accused of institutional racism following revelations that Prince William’s godmother was racist towards a prominent charity black woman- Ngozi Fulani.
 Critics of Harry and Meghan believe it has deliberately been released in the middle of the race row over the appalling treatment of Prince William’s godmother towards charity boss, Ngozi Fulani.
Such a deliberate timing can only be interpreted as hostile, though there is no evidence as to whether the released of the trailer was timed by the Sussexes or by Netflix.
