Prince William maintains a diplomatic stance in the films while his and Kate’s private secretaries are shown to be the true monsters
Lifetime’s latest and final installment of the ‘Harry & Meghan’ saga is finally here and just the title ‘Escaping the Palace’ was enough to raise anticipation about bombshell reveals to come. Unfortunately, social media has been left disappointed with the lack of revelations in the film. Instead, the dramatic over-exaggeration of events has left people complaining. However, there are certain parts from the film that absolutely cannot be ignored, the biggest one of them all being the film’s Prince William decrying claims of racism within the family, claiming their feelings about Meghan are more to do with her American culture and celebrity status rather than the color of her skin.
That the film would opt for such a narrative isn’t shocking considering ahead of its September 6 premiere, the movie had already been heavily criticized for an outrageous car crash scene where film-Meghan (Sydney Morton) can be seen lying under a wreck resembling the fatal crash that killed Princess Diana. The film fits the scene as part of a nightmare that movie-Harry has, but that hasn’t stopped the flak from social media for how vile and disrespectful recreating the imagery is.

The William confrontation is also expected to rile up more than a few people considering things tend to get pretty heated between the Queen’s grandkids. The scene begins with Harry trying to get his brother to speak out against racism faced by his wife Meghan, who was the first person of color in the royal family. The racist attacks allegedly faced by Meghan were revealed in the bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview where the former actress, without naming anyone, had claimed there were concerns around the color of her then-unborn son’s skin. Meghan had also alleged that incessant bullying from British tabloids — an extension of the racist attack she endured — caused her to have suicidal thoughts. The royal family also allegedly did nothing when the bullying got too much — something that the Lifetime movie alludes to in the confrontation scene.
Standing in the gardens at Kensington Palace, William tells Harry, “What causes problems isn’t color, it’s culture. Meghan’s an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a royal.” Harry retorts: “You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism. As future king, you need to push on this horrific bullying,” but.
