Ahead of the release, Prince Harry said in an interview that his brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton “stereotyped” Meghan Markle as a “divorced biracial American actress”. Prince Harry claimed that Prince William and his wife never got on with Meghan Markle “from the get-go”.
“There was a lot of stereotyping that was happening, that I was guilty of as well, at the beginning. American actress, right, and that was playing out in the British press in the media at the time as well. Some of the things that my brother and sister-in-law – some of the way that they were acting or behaving – definitely felt to me as though, unfortunately, that stereotyping was causing a bit of a barrier to them really sort of, you know, introducing or welcoming her in," Prince Harry said.
