Harry and Meghan are demanding a “sit-down meeting” with senior members of the Royal Family, following the release of the explosive Netflix documentary series this week. The Sussexes want the Royal Family to “take responsibility” for the hurt and damage they put the couple through. A source close to the couple told The Times that they want a meeting before attending King Charles’ coronation in May.
The source said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to “sit down with the Royal Family” for a meeting to address the “issues” they raised in the six-hour Netflix series.
According to The Times, the couple are particularly incensed that the Palace facilitated a warm reconciliation meeting between Ngozi Fulani, the charity boss, and Lady Susan Hussey, a former lady-in-waiting to Queen Elizabeth.
Last month, the Palace was engulfed in a race row when Lady Hussey made “unacceptable and deeply regrettable” comments about Fulani’s heritage.
At the meeting, Lady Hussey offered her “sincere apologies” to Ms Fulani, who accepted the gesture.

The couple sees the meeting as a “double standard,” according to the source.
They suggested that the couple were upset by the lack of a response from the Palace to the series.
The source said: “Nothing like that was ever done when Harry and Meghan raised various concerns — no meeting, formal apology or taking responsibility or accountability.
“That is hard to swallow — 100 percent yes they’d like to have a meeting.”
In the final three episodes of the controversial documentary series, Harry admitted he would have “to make peace with the fact we’re probably never going to get genuine accountability or a genuine apology” from his brother Prince William, or his father King Charles.
When asked about Harry’s criticism of the monarchy, a royal courtier simply told The Times: “That is Harry’s decision – he’s taking one decision, we’re taking another.
“We are deliberately keen to send a message by being voiceless.
“Our duty is to get on with the job. It isn’t to respond.”
Even a close friend of the Sussexes, and legendary American TV news anchor, Gayle King commended the Palace’s approach to the documentary.
She told viewers on her morning show: “That would seem the right tack to take from the Palace, just have no comment.”
