Harry and Meghan documentary goes against William's wishes AGAIN with more Diana footage

Harry and Meghan's bombshell Netflix docuseries has shared further footage of Princess Diana's controversial interview with Martin Bashir - going against Prince William's wishes again.

In the fourth episode of the documentary, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex recall their increasing popularity with the press and public.

"Putting aside what I think about her, right, she's becoming a royal rockstar," Piers Morgan is heard saying. "Bigger, I would argue, as a couple than William and Kate. That's probably not a good thing in the long term."

While Prince Harry said: "The issue is that when someone is marrying in who should be a supporting act is then stealing the limelight or is doing the job better than someone who is born to do this, that upsets people, it shifts the balance.

"Because you're led to believe that the only way you can succeed and your charities can succeed, can be grown, can be improved is if you're on the front page of those newspapers."

He recalled the "penny finally dropping" for her was when they spent the night at Buckingham Palace after attending a Remembrance Day event with a number of senior royal family members.

The next morning, the couple had breakfast set up and on the front page of the Telegraph had been Meghan.

"She went, 'but it's not my fault'," Harry said. "And I was like, 'I know, my mum felt the same way.'"

A clip then aired of Diana speaking to Bashir about the jealousy she had witnessed by 'stealing the limelight' from the now King Charles in Australia.

“Now, if you are a man like my husband, a proud man, you mind about that if you hear it every day for weeks and you feel low about it," she said.

Asked whether she had been flattered by the media attention, she said: "No, not particularly because with the media attention came a lot of jealousy, a great deal of complicated situations arose because of that."

It comes after William was left "furious" after footage from the infamous Panorama interview was first shown in the documentary last week.

Sources close to the future king said William would be "dismayed" that his brother had "blatantly gone against his wishes" with another source suggesting "it shows just how little regard there is from the Sussex camp".

One source said: "He (William) will be rightly furious about it.

"He couldn't have been clearer in the past and this is one thing he would have thought he and Harry were aligned on.

"Sadly once more it shows the gulf between the two brothers couldn't be wider."
