The Duchess of Sussex has claimed she was “being fed to the wolves” before she left the UK with her husband.
In a trailer for the latest part of their Netflix docuseries, Meghan says “our security was being pulled” and “everyone in the world knew where we were”.
“I said, ‘we need to get out of here’,” says Prince Harry, as the footage cuts to an aircraft taking off.
Prince Harry is then seen in a self-shot video on board the couple’s flight to the US, saying: “We are on the freedom flight”.
Earlier this week the first three episodes of Meghan & Harry were made available to stream, with the pair talking about the pressure they felt from media interest in their lives.
The next three episodes will be released on Thursday 15 December.
“I wonder what would have happened to us, had we not got out when we did,” says the Duke of Sussex at the beginning of the latest clip.
He then speaks of “institutional gaslighting”, before the duchess adds: “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves. I was being fed to the wolves.”
“They were happy to lie to protect my brother,” continues Harry, referring to Prince William, against images of Buckingham Palace and newspaper headlines including: ‘Queen orders a hard Megxit’.
“They were never willing to tell the truth to protect us.”
On January 8 2020, the Sussexes revealed they intended to “step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent”.
They officially left the monarchy on March 31 2020, having opted for personal and financial freedom over remaining as working members of the Royal Family.
“In order for us to be able to move to the next chapter, you’ve gotta finish the first chapter,” says Harry.
Leaving the UK “gave us the chance to create that home that we had always wanted”, says Meghan.
“I’ve always felt as though this was a fight worth fighting for,” adds the duke.
