The choice of the title “Harry & Meghan” for the Netflix series, allows us to see that they have made a crucial perspective in their narrative; we get to see them as individuals rather than figures of the British royal family. The first episode tells their story from 2020 to 2022, looking at their departure from the royal family and their relationship with the press. It was the first time they took control of their own narrative.
