Harry and Meghan’s Netflix trailer uses photo of 'paparazzi' with no link to Royals


A photograph used in a trailer for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix documentary, purportedly showing how the couple were hounded by the press, has no connection to the Royal family, it has emerged.

The black and white image shows a bank of photographers holding up long lenses and apparently clamouring for a shot.

But rather than pursuing Harry and Meghan, they were at the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two, in July 2011. As accredited members of the press, they were taking pictures of celebrities on the red carpet. 

The event took place five years before the Duke and Duchess met. No members of the Royal family were present.

The image features in the one-minute Harry & Meghan trailer, released last week and is immediately followed by a clip of the Duke saying: “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.

Several images of newspapers being printed and handed out on the streets are then shown, the inference being that the couple will talk about their fraught relationship with the British tabloids and their experience of life in the public eye. 

The use of such an image to convey a particular message has been criticised by royal experts who suggested that because it is “fake” it weakens the Duke’s argument.


It is the second photograph used in the trailer that has caused controversy.

Another appears to have been taken inside Buckingham Palace and is thought to have been the subject of a written palace complaint.

The professional, black and white image (below) shows the couple with their backs to the camera, apparently walking out of the garden entrance.
