Harry and Meghan's upcoming Netflix documentary is expected to not only criticise the royal family but the British public too.

Sources have compared the show - due for release next week - to Oprah "with more crying" after the couple's explosive interview with her last year.
And details that emerged on Sunday morning of a conversation between Harry and a friend in the lead up to the interview hinted further at what could also be in store for the documentary.
"This is going to be quite shocking. Those Brits need to learn a lesson," Harry told his friend, according to senior sources from the Sun.
However, there is mounting frustration over the growing number of public complaints from the couple about their treatment, Buckingham Palace sources said on Saturday.
It comes after it was revealed that Meghan and Kate would be "pitted against one another" in the Sussexes' series.
Production insiders claimed the show is "worse than the royals can imagine" as a new war between the Prince and Princess of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex enflamed.
The documentary will heavily compare Ms Markle's media coverage with Ms Middleton's, The Telegraph reported.
The pair will be more generally placed next to each other, according to the newspaper, further fuelling talk of a rivalry.
One royal source said "Here we go again."
Allies of the Sussexes had denied that the show would involve "finger-pointing".
Another person "in contact with a Netflix production insider" told The Mirror that the episodes are "utterly explosive".
They said: “I genuinely think it’s going to be worse than the royals can imagine.
“I’m told that it’s going to be utterly explosive and will be very damaging.”
Tensions spiked on Friday when the first trailer for Harry and Meghan appeared just as the Prince and Princess of Wales were seeking to gain attention for their visit to America.
The alleged insider added: “Whatever comes out, some people will think that Harry is betraying his family and that it’s unforgiveable. But if what finally airs is as seismic as we’re led to believe then it may be good for the Sussexes."
