You hold on with fingernails
Gouging trails in the cliff face
In the futile hope
That you’ll manage to hang on
And wait that full week
For those next three episodes
And the bombshells they’ll bring.
I have literally just finished watching the first half of the Meghan and Harry documentary series on Netflix. I have to admit that I was so excited, I could quite easily have called in sick so that I could watch it immediately (I didn’t actually do that).
The news reports today are saying that the Royal Family are breathing a sigh of relief because there were no bombshells that made them look bad. The first three episodes were all about the couple’s early days and it ended just as we were reaching the time of the wedding.
My honest opinion is that the Royal Family shouldn’t relax too quickly because I think there is worse to come.
Everything about this documentary has been so closely orchestrated and I think that cutting the series in two is very clever of Netflix. I, for one, am going to be watching with bated breath. I have always loved a cliffhanger and I’m a sucker for this age old technique – they have me hooked.

Please forgive me if this ends up being a duplicate, Rachel; I wasn’t sure whether my first comment got through. At any rate, cliffhangers really can draw readers in. They want to – they must know what happens next. So they tune in to the next episode/series/etc.. It’s little wonder that so many shows and films use cliffhangers. It’ll be really interesting to see if the next part of the documentary drops bombshells.
I worry for them if they do drop any. The backlash on Twitter is horrible and people have really twisted what they have said. There is a clip of Meghan laughing about curtseying and everyone is saying she is disgusting for mocking the Queen. If you watch it in context, she is mocking herself.
