NETFLIX bosses are furious that the Meghan and Harry series trailers were packed with ‘fake’ footage.
The imagery of photographers clamouring at them at public events was revealed to have been taken at a Harry Potter film premiere and of Katie Price arriving at court.
A TV insider said: “Netflix chiefs expected the couple to flag any problems.
“Now the feel of ‘fakery’ has swirled around the show before it’s aired.”
One photograph of Harry apparently fronting up to the press was taken when he was with his former girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, who was cropped out of the picture.
“Netflix chiefs were unaware just how much of the imagery that was put in the trailers was dubious and expected the couple to scrutinise them and flag anything that could cause problems.
“And it comes just as they recover from claims they exaggerated and fabricated royal stories in the past five series of their big royal drama, The Crown.”
it has also emerged that the doc won’t be bound by the same Ofcom regulations ensuring accuracy.
The rules state that factual programmes “must not materially mislead the audience”, but because the streaming giants aren’t based in Britain it doesn’t need to abide by the regulations.
