Good gravy! Even the Middletons were never exploited to this extent and that's exactly what I think it is. Exploitation.
He just has to accept it. The last thing the monarchy needs is that he gives another idiotic interview or releases a stupid press release.

Almost everyone I know has (right or wrong) lost a lot of respect for him, and he now has to be very carefull with what he does.

What I'd like to know is that if this program is being done without Meghan's approval, is there really anything she can do about it or does she really have to just sit back, grin and bear it? Its her life they're delving into.

I agree with you Royal Norway that there's not really much Harry could possibly do as the reality of it all is that he's just dating her at this time. Its not his place to step in actually.

There were docs on Catherine too. It's all up on YouTube. A lot of people who's quick to talk and think they know you better than yourself. I guess it's something that goes along with dating these very popular royals.

I'm fortunate to know a lot of people who have even greater respect for Harry speaking up. There are some who still don't agree with his opinion, however do respect his honesty. While others who work in emergency services who truly respect that Harry has brought a lot of good and positive attention to decreasing the stigma about dealing with mental health issues.

I personally believe that those who are impacted by mistreatment and abuse have the right to speak, if they want, against others who desire to inflict pain and harm. Why let the bullies, criminals and other unsavoury people trample on and continue to inflict harm? Victims have rights too.

Yes, I have a large number of people in a circle of extended family and friends back in England, including two who served in the military, and none of them have lost one iota of respect or friendly feelings towards Harry.

Samantha Markle has replied to someone on her Twitter page, saying she knew nothing about any show, nobody's spoken to her about it and how ridiculous it was that the BBC should do a show about her family, lol.

So, unless she's lying through her back teeth, (possible, with her behaviour since last year) it would be rather odd for Channel 4 to say that such a show is in the works without Meghan's main prosecutor being centre stage.

Well, I hope when Harry does something excellent in the future, to do with Invictus or another of his charities, (and he will,) that those who have been very quick and eager to criticise him for this, will come on these threads and lavish an equal amount of praise. Somehow I doubt it though!

Well, I'm sure Meghan and Harry can't wait to reunite again. Nothing like seeing your partner after being away for awhile. Lots of passion, romantic meals and a lots of catching up.

FYI everyone: the BBC is nothing to do with Channel 4 which is an independent commercial channel.

When will the madness stop?! Harry & Meghan have only been dating for roughly a year and already a tv show is being made on her life? What utter rubbish! Harry is now 5th in line to the throne & his wife won't be queen so why is this even necessary? This just stinks of desperation & opportunism on behalf of channel 4 who have commissioned the programme. The show will probably contain the same crap & misinformation already out there & interviews from estranged family members on her father's trashy side of the family whom Meghan hasn't spoken to in years.

No wonder Harry has found it hard to find a spouse. The media just make it virtually impossible for any woman he dates by creating a feverish environment. With Meghan in particular there seems to be an effort to try to discredit her in every way.

It's tacky of this station to run a show about the Markles. As for "exploring" Meghan's ancestry, read, "let's drive the point home that a descendant of African slaves from America may be marrying into the House of Windsor". Stoke the racial animus here. The royal house has a lot in its background (bloods royal and married ins) they can't say boo about. The immediate family are not going to talk; even evil half-sister Samantha has backed off lately. They know if they participate in a televised hit piece they can kiss their dream of standing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace goodbye.

One thing about this past controversy over Harry's words is that its shown us something very important about the man. The fact that he's human. He's not a programmed puppet on a string and in his lifetime, I'm sure he's going to come across many, many occasions where he wishes he could get a "do over" on them. There are also going to be occasions where he will be a bright shining star and excel at things. He'll also take those in stride without getting an over inflated ego. That's maturity.

The fact that Samantha mistook the Channel concerned and blamed the BBC seems to show that whoever is going to appear on this trash (if it ever gets produced) it's not going to be her. As she has constantly criticised MM at times, (the only one among the relatives to do so, as in spite of embarrassing behaviour from Meghan's halfbrother, he and the others have had nothing but good to say of Meghan) you would think she would be the first to sign up!

This!

It is all dogs & whistles. I'll also bet the ancestry they'll be exploring we'll just be her African-American side. The daily fail did a similar thing months ago & all they talked about were her slave ancestors. Nothing was mentioned of her white ancestry cause I guess that's not as scandalous!

As for the the crazy half sister Samantha Grant she is honestly no better. Samantha is writing a tell all book on Meghan & has shown herself to be a nasty piece of work who has sold her out too many times. The rest of the Markle family are also an embarrassment & have all sold their stories to the media. Meghan has been estranged from them for years. With the exception of Meghan’s father I dont think we'll be seeing any of the Markles invited if there is a royal wedding.

If there is to be a wedding, I'd be surprised if anyone from Meghan's family besides her mother and her father are in attendance. The others have just proven that they have no respect whatsoever for Meghan so why should she include them in her and Harry's special day.

Kind of has a Cinderella feel to it doesn't it.

Not to make excuses for anyone, but not all families know how to handle having a famous relative in the family, yet alone one who's dating a very famous British prince. That family must be getting all kinds of calls from the media to do interviews and spill a few beans. It doesn't matter if the family don't know any real insightful details of the couple.

The media did this to Catherine's immediate and extended family. It went from the press knocking on the Middleton's front door, to putting one of her cousins in the spotlight. Let's not forget about the endless ancestral articles and the ex-friends interviews for docs and tv talk shows.

The media wants to know who these young ladies and their families are. It's wrong and stupid, but this goes with the territory of dating someone like Harry. He not only upsets him, but he hope none of it will cause his girlfriend to run off. It's a tough situation.

One reason that the media does do this is because they know there is an audience for it. In the quest for lining the pockets, the actual people don't matter. They're just a means to an end.

I actually got this statement today in an email (doesn't matter from who) and reading about this latest rumor about a "Meet the Markles" program, it kind of fits in with things.

"“All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school, you’re just like, that’s adorable... This is a business. ... So, they got to do what they got to do to make their money."

I'm sure Harry has talked about the ins and outs of the package that comes along with dating him. I think she has handled everything with a great deal of grace, discretion and professionalism.
