A controversial royal documentary has opted not to use the term ‘Megxit’ airing in tomorrow’s episode after the word was previously criticised by Prince Harry.
The term could have appeared in the second episode of BBC Two’s The Princess and The Press, which is due to air tomorrow.
Instead, the name of the episode has been dubbed ‘Sussexit’, a newspaper outlet reports, and the documentary will examine allegations about behind the scenes palace briefings and an alleged lack of support received by the Duke and Duchess.
Prince Harry said that perhaps people know this or maybe they don’t, but the term Megxit was or is a misogynistic term, and it was created by a troll, increased by royal correspondents and it grew and grew and grew into mainstream media.
The prince added that in putting the focus of their joint departure on his wife, the word Megxit was sexist.
The palace was reported to be annoyed at the first episode of the two-part documentary last Monday and has only been in recent contact with the filmmakers.
It dismissed the allegations as excessive and unfounded and has allegedly complained at not having what it deems a right of reply, with no previews of the episode before it aired.
The Duchess of Sussex’s lawyer Jenny Afia will appear in tomorrow’s second episode which covers events from 2018 to now, including claims made in March that the duchess bullied two personal assistants.
Jenny Afia said that those accounts were incorrect and that this story that no one can work for the Duchess of Sussex, she was too difficult and demanding as a boss and everyone had to leave, it’s just not true.
Besides the alleged turmoil inside the palace, it will also include revelations about Martin Bashir’s interview with Princess Diana in 1997. Mr Bashir admitted this year that he’d faked two invoices to secure the princess’s trust before the interview.
Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace took the measure of issuing a joint statement to the BBC at the end of the first episode.
They said that a free, responsible and open press is of vital importance to a healthy democracy.
However, too often it’s excessive and unsupported allegations from unnamed sources that are presented as facts and that it’s disappointing when anyone, including the BBC, gives them plausibility.
I wonder why Harry appears to think that Megxit is misogynistic, or is this just another example of his truth as he sees it?
Apparently, Harry didn’t learn that much at school and didn’t understand that ‘Megxit’ is a made-up word and therefore called neologism. It’s not sexist and doesn’t refer to anything of sex, and he’s making a claim that’s not accurate so that he can dictate what’s said about his wife Meghan.
And it doesn’t matter what they say or do or how many lawyers they send in, it’s not going to change what people think of them because the general public has already made their minds up about them. I really like Harry, he’s a hilarious personality and I prefer him out of the Royal Family than in it, as for Meghan I’ve not quite made my mind up yet, I suppose it will depend on how many times she dips her trotters in the royal swamp so that she can try to unearth as much pig swill as she can.
Everyone is saying that Harry and Meghan should have their titles removed, but the Royal Family won’t do that, even though they’ve attacked the Royal Family, but it’s a really good PR stunt.
If the Queen was going to do something, she would have done it by now, which means that she supports what they’re doing – as I said, a very good PR stunt.
