Good Morning Britain has been accused of sparking “competition” between brothers Prince Harry and Prince William, following discussion of Harry and Meghan Markle’s new Netflix documentary.
During the ITV breakfast show, co-hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shepherd spoke on the upcoming docuseries, which gives insight on the lives of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the trials they faced as royals, after the trailer dropped on Thursday 1 December.
The presenters went on to discuss the documentary possibly overshadowing the Prince and Princess of Wales’ visit to the United States this week, which saw them travel to Boston, Massachusetts.
This led viewers to believe GMB was encouraging a rivalry between the royal brothers, and they shared their thoughts on the reporting on social media.
One person tweeted: "GMB are making it a competition between William and Kate Harry and Meghan.
“William and Kate are going to rule England some day. Prince Harry's life was always going to be different from his brother. This hating #HarryandMeghan isn't helping Kate and William."
A second wrote: "The nonsense being promoted this morning by GMB. If William & Kate were popular or interesting their spot light could never be stolen."
A third said: "What don’t people get about family politics? Not everyone has a tight relationship with your dad or your brother’s, priorities are who you live with."
Discussing the Netflix trailer promoted on the show, one viewer added: "Looking really desperate to keep the Royal Family onside.
“Piling on Harry & Meghan with the Royal Family/household narrative. The misleading ticker claiming Harry & Meghan have released the trailer (No Netflix did)."
Netflix dropped the trailer for Harry, 38, and Meghan’s new series on Thursday. The clip includes Harry saying: “No one sees what's happening behind closed doors.”
Elsewhere in the trailer, Meghan, 41, says: “When the stakes were this high, doesn't it make more sense to hear our story from us?"
The one-minute clip shows a reel of black-and-white photos of the Duke and Duchess, with one image showing Meghan bent over in tears.
Royal experts have shared their belief that the series itself is a “declaration of war” onto the Royal Family.
Sharing the same thought, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams, who said: "The timing draws attention away from William and Catherine's visit to Boston, which is highly prestigious.
“William is launching the Earthshot Prize and meeting Biden, which is very very prestigious.”
