In one of the episodes of “Harry and Meghan,” the docuseries that is out on Netflix, Meghan talks about the threats she had to face. Online predators have never been easy on anyone, and Meghan is no exception. She breaks down in tears, talking about the widespread hate and its infliction. Here is an incident recalled in Meghan’s words, “Just a couple of days ago, I was going through the manual for our security team at home, and on one of the pages that I happened to flip to, it was about online monitoring. And they’re like, ‘If you see a tweet like this, please report it to the head of security immediately.’ And it just said, ‘Meghan just needs to die. Someone needs to kill her. Maybe it should be me.’ And I was just like, ‘OK.’ That’s what’s actually out in the world because of people creating hate.”
The threats do not end just with her, Meghan, who is a mother of two, has fears and anxiety for the safety of her children as well. “And that night, to be up and down in the middle of the night, looking down my hallway, like, ‘Are we safe? Are the doors locked? Is security on?’ That’s real. ‘Are my babies safe?’ And you’ve created it for what? Because you’re bored or because it sells your papers or it makes you feel better about your own life? It’s real, what you’re doing. And that’s the piece I don’t think people fully understand,” this is how Meghan expresses her fears for the safety of her children.

The long-awaited Netflix docuseries of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is all set to be released on December 8, 2022. However, the couple didn’t fix the name for the series yet, according to sources.
The initial expectation was that the series would be released sometime in January 2023 due to the backlash earned by the streaming platform for the latest season of ‘The Crown.’ But contrary to the belief, Netflix has planned to release the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s series this year-end, making it a feast for the Christmas season.
The series will be about the love story of a royal couple who wanted to share their significant moments in life with the public. The ‘Suits’ star said, “The piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see, is our love story.”
Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, signed with Netflix for the multimillion-dollar project last year. Since it was signed there were multiple obstacles from the Queen’s death to the termination of director Garrett Bradley from the project.
After attending the Queen’s funeral, the couple wanted to make certain changes to the already-planned plot and this made several controversies. Finally, the series is all set for release.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle dropped the plan to direct their Netflix docuseries using the Oscar-nominated director Garret Bradley and instead replaced her with Liz Garbus, according to sources.
The director of the critically praised Netflix series, ‘Naomi Osaka’ was first assigned to helm the couple’s highly anticipated docuseries which is about to release this December.
Bradley left the project as there were some conflicts between her and Sussexes. Garret wanted the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to take a shoot at home but the couple was not ready for that.
Now, Liz Garbus, who is also an Oscar-nominated director, was hired to replace Garrett. She will continue the remaining work as the production company of Harry and Meghan had already captured as much footage as they could.
Both Garbus and the Netflix bosses also didn’t feel comfortable working with the series, as the couple wanted to highly edit the story, per sources. Also, Harry and Meghan wanted to postpone the series release until 2023, but Netflix, the streaming platform refused.
However, the show will stream in December 2022 according to reports.
Harry is also in the process of editing his memoir which will be released in January 2023.

Harry and Meghan’s next meet-up with the royal family could cause a feud
The upcoming visit of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle to the UK might push the rival between the royal family and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Christiana also predicted that conflicts might even arise among the other members of the royal family at that time.
Meghan Markle was questioned about her kids in her recent interview with Variety, “What would you say if your kids want a career in entertainment?”
She indirectly pulled the royal family’s action in her answer, “They’re our kids, obviously, and they’re part of a legacy and a tradition and a family that will have other expectations. But I want them to be able to carve out their own path. If it’s the entertainment industry, great.”
Meghan’s controversial statement has already grabbed enough attention. Also, Meghan and Harry together working on a Netflix series which is about to release this December might have dispute causing elements about the royal family.

Looks like the relationship between Dutchess Kate and Meghan Markle cannot stay complex anymore. Apparently, the royal couple who recently quit from their royal duties showered a thoughtful gift to Kate Middleton on her 39th birthday.

“It was a nice surprise,” the source says. “Kate wasn’t expecting anything from the couple.” The gift was some diamond and sapphire earrings, “which she loves.”
“There were phone and video calls over the Christmas and New Year holiday and the Sussexes sent presents to the Cambridges and vice versa,” royal expert Katie Nicholl recently told Entertainment Tonight. “It was an opportunity in an otherwise very busy and chaotic year for both of the families to come together and connect, albeit virtually.”
“Moving to a completely different country is never easy for anyone, including Harry. And he wasn’t expecting to be faced with so many obstacles,” an insider explained in June 2020. “William’s advised Harry to return to London or move elsewhere, somewhere safer.”
Harry and Meghan Shifts to Los Angeles
