HARRY and Meghan reignited their war on William and Kate yesterday with an incendiary Netflix trailer.
Royal aides believe they “deliberately” timed its release to ambush the Prince and Princess of Wales during their major visit to the US.
An onlooker said of the couple: “They were all smiles — but you could see Kate also had a real steely look.”
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, said: “Putting the trailer out while William and Kate are in Boston looks like an ambush by Harry and Meghan. They are quite good at that kind of thing and timing is everything.
“But looking at how well the Prince and Princess of Wales have been received in Boston by the crowds and the great community work they are doing, I don’t think the attempted ambush has worked.”
In the clip, Harry’s “behind closed doors” warning is followed directly by a picture of William, Kate, Camilla and a pregnant Meghan attending a Commonwealth service in March 2019.
It triggered speculation the Netflix series will feature new claims about the breakdown in relations between Meghan and the family. At the time, she was expecting first child Archie.
Sources revealed William and Kate had not seen the trailer — released shortly after 7am yesterday, guaranteeing massive US breakfast TV coverage. Lady Chatterley’s Lover 2022
Yesterday the couple visited youngsters in Boston who are being diverted from crime and saw the city’s eco-projects helping to fight climate change.
Meanwhile, they are having to handle the fall-out after William’s godmother quit her role with the Royal Family after asking a black British charity boss at Buckingham Palace where she was “really” from.
The trailer also came a day before Kate and Wills tonight host their second Earthshot Prize in Boston where £5million in prize money will be handed out for environmentalism work.
They are expected to meet US President Joe Biden in Boston today.
But Meghan cheerleader Omid Scobie — who penned biography Finding Freedom — gloated about the trailer timing on Twitter. He posted: “If tomorrow is Prince William’s Super Bowl, then here is your Halftime show . . . ”
