Harry & Meghan has climbed its way up Netflix’s top 10 most-watched list and part two arrives on December 15.

A new trailer for the final episodes has just dropped and it shows Prince Harry saying: “I wonder what would have happened to us had we have not got out when we did.”

Crisis management expert Edward Coram James spoke to about the impact the documentary has had.

As the new trailer for the series continues, Meghan Markle is heard saying: “Our security was being pulled, everyone in the world knew where we were.”

Harry is then seen taking a video of himself on a plane, saying: “We are on the freedom flight” as the couple left the UK for America.

He goes on to accuse the monarchy of “institutional gaslighting”, with Meghan adding: “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves.”

Harry said his family were “never willing to tell the truth to protect us”, as they were branded the “Rogue Royals”.

The series has undoubtedly caused controversy as the couple have called out the Royal Family with a number of claims.

Edward Coram James, a PR, reputation management and crisis management expert, claimed Netflix, who described the series as a “global event”, was “rubbings its hands with glee” over the show’s impact.

He told “It seems to me that world events have come together to create the perfect storm for the Royals.

“The death of the Queen left Charles, William and Kate far more open to attack, new to their roles and unprotected by the shield of the internationally revered Queen.

“Combined with the recent racism accusations made against one of the Queen’s former ladies in waiting, the general international conversation concerning some of the issues and accusations to be made in the docuseries and the slowly boiling pressure cooker created by the constant headline courting of the Sussexes, it could not come at a worse time for them.

“Netflix, who could not have written some of the more recent headlines better if they tried, will be rubbing their hands with glee. There is little doubt that events of the past year will result in huge viewership numbers.”

He did say the timing of the documentary was not ideal,with many members of the Royal Family already protected from the claims.

He added: “In some respects, the same out-of-their-control events that appear to be conspiring against them may well provide them with the perfect shield.

“The Queen’s death sent the UK into national mourning, and placed the Royal Family at the centre of the global stage, on their turf and their terms, doing what they do best: pomp, pageantry, duty and dignity.

“The newly minted Prince and Princess of Wales are already highly popular figures and them being seen to step up to the plate, alongside the new King, will have won them fans around the world.

“Millions are rooting for them to succeed, and are sympathetic to the huge weight that they are now bearing on their shoulders.

“If they can navigate this Netflix scandal with the same modest duty that they have displayed since the passing of the Queen, I believe they will fully weather the entire Harry and Meghan problem, no matter what it brings.”

The expert said no matter what revelations come to light, the Royal Family will not be as caught off guard as the public.

He explained: “If they did not already work with a crisis management firm before, they will have had one on retainer ever since the Sussexes Oprah interview in March 2021.

“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. The release of this series will have been the primary focus of their crisis management team for many months now.

“The Royal Family will have a game plan, specific to each separate potential allegation, both those that will be made as well as a great many that will never see the light of day.

“That game plan will be detailed, and data driven, with every possible scenario war games.”

The Royal Family has made the decision not to comment on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s series.

An exact figure for how much the former senior royals earned from making the show is not known.

However, it has been widely reported the multi-year deal is worth up to $100million.

Harry and Meghan part 1 is on Netflix now. Part 2 arrives on December 15.
