Royal rifts and rumours abound in Harry & Meghan.

The second half of Netflix’s docuseries about the Sussexes, which dropped on Dec 15, offered far more bombshells than the lighter fare of the first three episodes.

Here are some of the most shocking takeaways.

Harry attributes Meghan’s miscarriage to 2020 lawsuit against British tabloid

Harry expressed his belief that his wife, 41, suffered a miscarriage in 2020 due to “what the Mail did.”

He was referring to the stress endured by a sleepless Meghan – according to the couple and their lawyer Jenny Afia – in relation to their lawsuit against Mail on Sunday publisher Associated Newspapers.

The suit centred around published excerpts of the Suits alum’s letter to estranged father Thomas Markle, which she says he never even received.

While Harry acknowledged there’s no concrete proof of a link, he believes Meghan’s “miscarriage was created by what they were trying to do to her”.

Meghan’s suicidal thoughts “really broke” Harry’s heart

Harry recalled being “devastated” to learn his wife harboured suicidal ideations amid the media’s treatment of her. Though the couple was “struggling,” he “never thought that it would get to that stage” and felt “angry and ashamed” it did.

“I didn’t deal with it particularly well,” said Harry, noting that “institutional Harry” not “husband Harry” was what “took over” his response. “I hate myself for it. What she needed from me was so much more than I was able to give.”

Prince William had a “terrifying” reaction to the Sussexes leaving their post

At the Sandringham Summit, Harry claims he and Meghan were given five options just after they announced their decision to “step back” as senior royals in January 2020. That landmark decision was made by Harry, not Meghan, per the doc.

After telling the Queen, his father and older brother he wanted the third option, “half in, half out; have our own jobs but also work in support of the Queen,” Harry said Prince William wasn’t having it.

“It became very clear very quickly that that goal was not up for discussion or debate,” he recalled. “It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me, and my father say things that simply weren’t true and my grandmother quietly sit there and sort of take it all in.”

However, Harry explained he understands part of 40-year-old William’s “responsibility is the survivability and continuation of this institution”.

“They were never willing to tell the truth”

Harry said he never signed off on the palace’s statement challenging allegations of William’s “bullying”.

“They’re happy to lie to protect my brother,” he said. “And yet, for three years, they were never willing to tell the truth to protect us.”

Meghan said it suddenly “clicked” for her that “every rumour, every negative thing, every lie ... was just being allowed to fester,” even if the palace knew it to be false. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
