Ulrika Jonsson is one of many celebrities who have shared their opinion on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s new Netflix series. The first three episodes dropped on the streaming platform earlier this week and the remaining three will be available to watch next week.
In what has been shown so far, the couple talk about their life in the Royal Family, press intrusion, racism and their relationship.
Prince Harry spoke out about the ‘racist undertones’ and ‘outright racism’ in the press that has been directed at his wife, particularly in the early stages of their romance. 
He claimed that the Royal Family didn’t understand why Meghan needed to be protected from the media and paparazzi intrusion.
Elaborating, he went on to say that the Palace urged them to not to say anything in response to stories written about them.

Why should you get special treatment? Why should she be protected?’
“I said, ‘The difference here is the race element’.”
The couple are expected to go more into depth about their time in the Royal Family when the new episodes are released, but Ulrika, 55, already believes it’s “a step too far”.
Sharing her opinion in her column with The Sun, she said: “Harry and Meghan’s public denouncement and criticism of (mainly) the Royal Family is a step too far, even for a diehard, objective, hard-boiled family expert like me.The couple discuss Royal Family, press intrusion, racism and their relationship in their Netflix show Ulrika Jonsson shared her thoughts on the the pair's controversial new series “I guess it’s because they’re not imparting their honesty directly to the people concerned.
“They’ve instead chosen to take the far more financially beneficial option of speaking their truth to Netflix.
“If only that was an option for all of us. Wouldn’t that be grand?”

“Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
