Silence of the crown
TMC continued its special evening with the broadcast of the documentary
Meghan and Harry: a modern day fairy tale
, produced and already broadcast on the occasion of their wedding in 2018. In the United States, where the interview was filmed, the CBS channel achieved its season record, excluding sports competitions, with 17 million viewers.
The interview, where the couple notably accuses a member of the royal family of racism without revealing his identity, did not fail to shock the Anglo-Saxon press, very attached to the crown, and to make the English react.
For her part, and as tradition dictates, Queen Elizabeth II and members of the Windsor dynasty remained silent in the face of this explosive interview.
