Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been charged with “faking” their press appearances by exploiting footage from unrelated events.
According to those behind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, when filming documentaries, using stock photos and video, is “standard practice.”
The former royals faced criticism after it was discovered that the image of them being surrounded by reporters in the “Harry & Meghan” teaser on Netflix was actually taken during a “Harry Potter” premiere that happened years before they ever knew each other.
While Katie Price was in court, another video was recorded, in which Harry is heard saying,“I was terrified, I didn’t want history to repeat itself.”
According to a source acquainted with the project, “you use stock images to tell a story. It’s not meant to be literal in a trailer.”
Additionally, the source continues, stating that the selection of the video was “common practice in documentary and trailer production,”. Also that Harry, 38, and Markle, 41, had no editorial control over the trailer.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s and Netflix’s representatives did not promptly respond to Page Six’s requests for comment.

Robert Jobson, a British royal correspondent, charged the pair with fabricating the tragic footage on Monday and emphasized that one of the trailer’s more somber parts was really captured during a tightly controlled, press-approved event.
“This photograph used by @Netflix and Harry and Meghan to suggest intrusion by the press is a complete travesty,” Jobson tweeted. “It was taken from a accredited pool at Archbishop Tutu’s residence in Cape Town. Only 3 people were in the accredited position. H & M agreed the position. I was there.”
