Harry and Meghan’s ‘editing fail’ in huge Netflix doc called out by TV reporter

An Australian news reporter has pointed an apparent editing error in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix docu-series.

The explosive series dropped on the streaming giants yesterday (December 8) and has apparently left Prince William "furious".

One section of the show saw the couple hit out at the British media but 7News' Europe correspondent Sarah Greenhalgh has noticed an apparent "error" in the criticism.

Speaking on the Sunrise programme, she summarised the first three episodes, saying: "We weren't really expecting the royals to respond unless there is a particular leak or damaging accusation."

"Harry says his family is 'unconscious biased' when it comes to racism but there is no explicit allegation of racism that they are required to respond to.

"It's mostly about press intrusion.

"Even though they do mostly criticise the British press, it should be pointed out that many of the worst examples, some of the worst headlines or soundbites, are actually from the American outlets.

"At one point, Harry and Meghan were chased by American paparazzi in New York while criticising the British press."

The couple were also slammed by other journalist for repeatedly mistaking press photographers as "paparazzi".

Anita Singh, the Daily Telegraph's Arts and Entertainment Editor, shared on Twitter: "One mistake this documentary – and Harry – keeps making is referring to press photographers as 'paparazzi'.

"They are not the same. Every photographer on a photo call has been invited there."

The comments come after the trailer for the series was criticised online for using "fake" photos supposedly showing press intrusion.

One image used in it showed photographers at the premier of a Harry Potter film in 2011 several years before the Duke and Duchess met.

In response, a source familiar with the making of the documentary told The Daily Telegraph that the Sussexes do not have editorial control over the trailers.

The source said: "You use stock images to tell a story.

"It's not meant to be literal in a trailer."
