Meghan Markle accused of going for Best Actress award with Netflix documentary

Meghan Markle has been accused of running for "best actress" while appearing in her documentary alongside husband Prince Harry.

The royal couple became the centre of controversy following the release of their bombshell series on Netflix earlier in December.

Sharing background information on the monarchy, Harry and Meghan also divulged into why they decided to leave the UK due to Meghan's alleged ill treatment.

But Washington-based foreign policy expert and Royal Family enthusiast Nile Gardiner has accused the Duchess of Sussex of showcasing her acting skills in the six-part programme.

Talking to, he said: "This documentary series has very much been the Meghan Markle show. She is literally acting throughout all of the interviews she is shown doing.

"Prince Harry is the Best Supporting Actor to Meghan's starring role. What we have really seen is Hollywood fiction, with Meghan running for Best Actress.

"At points in the documentary series, especially in the early part, Harry looks thoroughly bored and doesn't look overly comfortable with a lot of what Meghan is saying. Meghan is in complete control."

In addition to this, Nile also compared the allegations made from Meghan and Harry towards the Royal Family to "the media's version of a cruise missile".

During the explosive series, Harry said Kensington Palace "lied to protect" his older brother Prince William when it issued a joint statement in both their names on the same day without his permission.

In another clip, Harry made reference to "institutional gaslighting" before the scene dramatically cuts to Meghan telling the camera: "I wasn't being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves."

Following the release of the series, former Suits actress Meghan became the centre of controversy once again after TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson wrote a foul comment about her in his column for The Sun.

Jeremy said he was "dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while crowds chant, 'Shame!' and throw lumps of excrement at her".

After receiving more than 20,000 complaints for his remarks, The Sun was forced to apologise.

In a statement, the publication wrote: "Columnists' opinions are their own, but as a publisher, we realise that with free expression comes responsibility.

"We at The Sun regret the publication of this article and we are sincerely sorry.

"The article has been removed from our website and archives."
