A “distorted story” … Harry and Meghan did not leave their royal duties “due to privacy”.

Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have never cited “privacy” as a reason for giving up royal life, the BBC reported.

A spokesman for the pair said a “distorted story” had been made up.

It comes after some commentators accused the new “Harry and Meghan” series on Netflix, which launched this week, of contradicting the couple’s reasons for leaving the United Kingdom.

The report said this was “absolutely untrue”, pointing out that the couple wanted to continue their public duties after leaving the Royal Family.

Their decision to step down from royal life was announced in early January 2020 in joint statements from the Duke and Duchess and Buckingham Palace.

In their statement, Harry and Meghan said: “We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honor our commitment to the Queen and the Commonwealth.” They added: “This geographical balance will help us raise our son with an appreciation for the royal traditions he was born into, while giving our family room to focus on the next chapter, including launching our new charity.”

At the time, one explanation for their decision led to the suggestion that press interference, particularly affecting their then-born son Archie, may have been a factor in their leaving the country.

The pair are engaged in separate legal battles against newspaper publishers, including over privacy, and have told several of the UK’s biggest tabloids they will no longer work with them.

Journalistic snooping is a running theme in the first three episodes of a new documentary series co-produced by the pair.

Since the release of the episodes and trailers, some commentators have suggested that Harry and Meghan have changed their argument about privacy.

For example, Dickie Arbiter, a former press secretary to the late Queen Elizabeth, said after watching the first three episodes on Thursday: “They left because they wanted privacy. Well, there’s a lot about privacy in this documentary series because we see a lot of family photos.

“They blew up their opposition and blew their privacy policy,” one newspaper quoted another critic as saying.

Ashley Hansen, a spokeswoman for the couple, said in a written statement: “The Duke and Duchess did not cite privacy as a reason for stepping back from their duties. The purpose of this distorted story is to keep the couple quiet. In fact, the statement announcing their decision to step back made no mention of privacy and their right to continue their public roles and duties. Reiterating the will.

He continued, “The couple chose to share their story, but the popular media has created a completely false narrative that permeates press coverage and public opinion. The facts are before the people.
