This interview comes right after the release of the Netflix docuseries ‘Harry & Meghan’ which claimed to show "the other side" of the Duke and Duchess’ very public love story. The show delved deep into “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 series threw one too many curveballs at the royal family, with the couple going so far as to blame the persistent negative media coverage for the loss of their child and also accused the royal family of planting stories about them in the media. “I believe my wife suffered a miscarriage because of what The Mail did. I watched the whole thing,” Prince Harry said in the docuseries.

He added, “Now, do we absolutely know that the miscarriage was caused by that? Of course, we don’t. But bearing in mind the stress that caused, the lack of sleep, and the timing of the pregnancy, how many weeks in she was. I can say from what I saw that miscarriage was created by what they were trying to do to her.”

The royal family has not yet commented on any of the accusations, but it is being rumored at present that the couple is, regardless of their present status with the firm, still invited to the coronation of King Charles to be held later in the year.
