    Harry & Meghan‘ was being considered for a nomination in the category of Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series. This was expected considering the viewership record of the series and it was more than other popular shows.

    But its name was included in the nominations for Best Streaming Nonfiction Series at the Hollywood Critics Association Awards. Netizens have expressed their criticism towards the Hollywood Critics Association saying that the series was completely fictional and nothing was real.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been trending in the U.S. and a Newsweek poll of Americans disclosed that Harry’s approval has decreased to 46% in the first quarter of 2023. Markle’s approval has also seen a change, declining to 36%. Apparently, a favorable Emmy nomination would’ve led to deals and contracts that could’ve fetched the couple $300 million, which has now rattled the duo as they were “100% sure” about getting a nomination, according to The Mirror.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s documentary was criticized by a few people

    After the documentary premiered in December 2022, there was a lot of criticism of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Harry described his family as biased in the documentary and that the British media emphasized Markle’s biracial background after the duo’s marriage.

    Meghan Markle was also critical of the British press, saying that they created their own stories. The documentary was part of a production deal worth $100 million between Netflix and the couple. Since moving away from the royal family, they have been trying to make their own money.

    British media targeted a few moments from the documentary, including footage where the paparazzi circled around the couple and revealed that the moment happened at a benign event. There was criticism towards the filming process which seemed to happen at the couple’s residence in Montecito, California but the scenes were shot somewhere else.
