The new royal war is not only on, it’s intense How to sum up the world of the royal family this weekend? Easy. Everyone has lost their freaking minds. As the trailer for their six-part Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan heralded this week, the war between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Buckingham Palace has roared back into crazy life.
Radio host Ben Fordham has unleashed a scathing attack on Harry and Meghan's upcomingdocumentary series, citing trailers for the show as being 'full of editing tricks and misleading scenes'.
On his 2GB radio program on Wednesday morning, Fordham called out trailers for the new six-part series as being riddled with deceptive information and heavily edited photos and video footage.
'So we have false claims, photos that have no link to the, videos that have no link to Harry and Meghan and images taken out of context,' he said.
Fordham told listeners one scene aired in the trailer shows footage of paparazzi surrounding a car as Harry is heard complaining about the pain and suffering of women marrying into the royal family and dealing with the media 'feeding frenzy'.
Will Harry and Meghan Be Invited to Charles' Coronation After Docuseries?
Documentary fallout? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are prepared to share their royal experience in a tell-all Netflix series, but could that impact their potential attendance at his father King Charles III’s official coronation? “We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but Charles, he’s been handed this horrible problem. It’s the kind of thing […]“We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but Charles, he’s been handed this horrible problem. It’s the kind of thing that the Queen would’ve tried to just ignore for as long as she possibly could.
But the footage did not involve either Harry or Meghan or 'even a member of the royal family', according to Fordham.
Fordham said the footage was from 2019 'and the subject was a lawyer for former president Donald Trump', Michael Cohen.
The broadcaster went on to denounce the trailers for more examples of misleading photos and videos.
One scene was ripped from a court appearance by UK celebrity Katie Price, while another was taken at a premiere for a 2011 Harry Potter film, years before the controversial couple even met.
'You'd think that if Harry and Meghan were being harassed this relentlessly they would have some real proof to use in the documentary,' he said.
'Instead they are relying on file footage related to others.'
Fordham also said it was a 'travesty' a photo taken from above of Harry and Meghan with their newborn was used by the couple and Netflix to suggest intrusion into their private life by the media.

Fordham suggested the airing of the series will unveil more inconsistencies.
'If that’s what we’ve got from two previews, just imagine what’s to come in the six-part documentary,' he said.

It says the series includes interviews with family and friends 'who’ve never spoken publicly about the couple’s relationship before' as well as historians and journalists speaking about the effects of the media on the couple.
