Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly searching for answers after they were surprisingly snubbed for an Emmy nomination for their six-part ‘Harry and Meghan’ series. According to a source, the Sussexes are determined to know the names of those they believe orchestrated a campaign to prevent their appointment.
Although their series broke Netflix’s record for a documentary debut, with more than 81.6 million hours watched in its first four days in December 2022, it was not recognized by the Emmys. Even its average first-week viewership surpassed that of “The Crown.”
The couple would be deeply disappointed by the Emmy snub, as they likely expected a nomination for Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Series. The Heat magazine source revealed that Harry and Meghan see the omission as a blow, and they suspect an orchestrated hate campaign against them on both sides of the Atlantic. They are eager to find out who was behind it all and they want to know what they need to do to take a break.
The ‘Harry and Meghan’ series has shed light on their romance and experiences as royals, offering a glimpse into the inner workings of the institution. However, he has also come under fire for Harry’s public criticism of his estranged family, particularly with the release of his memoir ‘Spare’ in January this year.
Undeterred by the Emmy snub, the couple’s next documentary project with Netflix, titled “Heart of Invictus,” is slated for release later this summer.
