Their documentary released on Netflix in December, in six episodes, allowed the 'Sussex' to give their views on their departure, which made them wildly unpopular in the UK where they are often portrayed by a ruthless press as selfish spoiled brats.
If the docuseries did not contain any sensational revelation, the couple settled their accounts with the media, accused of harassment and of having caused the miscarriage of Meghan. He also accuses the royal family of lies, of not having been able to protect them, and Harry recounts the backstage of his departure by targeting his brother William, who would have “screamed” at him during a family reunion in 2020 in the presence of 'Elizabeth II.
The Sussexes also accuse William and his wife Kate of causing the negative press coverage because they were 'stealing the show'.
According to the Sunday Times, The Substitute mainly attacks William more than King Charles III, confirming the rift between the two brothers side by side at the funeral of their mother Diana in 1997.
“Charles is doing better than expected, but it's particularly hard for William, and even Kate is a little roughed up. There are these minute details, and a description of the argument between the brothers. Personally, I don't see how Harry and William will be able to reconcile after that,” a source with knowledge of the book told the Sunday newspaper.
