“Meghan Markle: Escaping The Crown” Documentary Set to be Premiered on March 31.
A documentary produced by Vice TV called, Meghan Markle: Escaping The Crown is set to be premiered on Sky TV March 31. The documentary, which is an hour-long special, is said to investigate the role that the monarchy and British tabloid media played in vilifying Markle.
In January, Harry and Meghan announced that they would be withdrawing from royal duties and that really sparked so much wonder as to why they would want to set back.
Vice TV then announced a documentary which will be aired at the end of a month to provide clarity to the complex, layered royal exit and tell what a post-royal life may look like for the pair. Just last week it was confirmed that the trademark applications that were filed under "Sussex Royal" have been removed. Then, earlier this week, while attending a sustainable travel summit in Edinburgh, Scotland, Harry asked that he be referred to as Harry and not Prince Harry.
The documentary will be the first release for Vice TV's new series of independent documentaries, Vice Versa.
"Our flagship documentary series Vice Versa, will serve as a hub for compelling storytelling that shakes the status quo and awakens viewers to new ideas, Meghan Markle Escaping The Crown is a prime example of a point of view you won't hear elsewhere - we're tackling this subject in a confrontational way to say what's really happening." Morgan Hertzan, EVP and general manager at Vice Television, said.
In the trailer obtained by The Independent, it appears the documentary will start from Harry and Meghan's wedding in Windsor on 19 May, 2018. Official synopsis from Vice TV also indicate that the TV special will dive into the rapid rise and unravelling of the Duchess of Sussex, and promises to feature exclusive interviews with palace insiders and experts including William and Harry's former butler, the American wives of the British aristocracy, and royal correspondents.
The Vice TV documentary will be airing on Sky and NOW TV on 31 March.
