Harry & Meghan becomes Netflix’s second most successful documentary series ever

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s recent Netflix series has been announced as the streaming service’s second-highest ranked documentary ever.

The first three episodes of Harry & Meghan were released on 8 December, followed by the final three a week later, in the lead-up to the publication of the duke’s controversial memoir Spare.

Reporting its fourth-quarter earnings, Netflix revealed it had gained 7.7 million subscribers during the October-December period, which included the debut of an ad-supported option for $7 (£5.65) per month.

Both Buckingham and Kensington Palace have remained silent over the allegations in the documentary series, which included Harry saying that the Prince of Wales left him terrified after screaming and shouting at him during the Sandringham summit.
