Harry and Meghan chased by paparazzi photo, actually from 'Harry Potter' premiere
An image apparently purporting to show Prince Harry and Meghan Markle being hounded by paparazzi in their new Netflix documentary is
actually a stock shot from photographers before it was added to the "Harry Potter" premiere, reports met according to
Black-and-white photo of rows of photographers appears in "Harry and Meghan" teaser, before Harry says:
"I had to do everything I could to protect my family," appears It turns out that he was protecting them. From paps and British tabloids.
But according to reports, the photo-starved group was actually getting shots of the cast of the beloved JK
Rowling series at a 2011 London event for the film "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two."
Markle and Prince Harry didn't meet until 2016, five years later, and neither attended the premiere.
Photographer Doug Seaberg, who was in the picture, said that there was no member of the royal family at the ceremony. The photo is also from the stock image site Alamy.
"The Netflix trailer implied that photographers, including me, were trying to get a shot of the royal couple — but that's bullshit."
"Feels like lazy picture research for a picture from that premiere in this trailer about Harry and Meghan."
A royal expert told the publication the "fake" photo undermines Harry's point about protecting his family.
She said the mistake was caused by Netflix being "careless" and that it was unlikely Harry knew.
Harry and Markle are expected to criticize the royal family and include fresh allegations of racism in a documentary to be released on Thursday.
