The actress took to her Youtube channel with hubby Mark Adderley to give her verdict on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s controversial show. Critiquing the third episode, the couple described the series as the “media event of the year, if not it’s the media event of December”. 

After the show aired, the couple took to their popular channel to give a description of what was revealed by Harry and Meghan.

In episode three the couple looked at the historical past of the royal family. They touched on the monarchy’s links to imperialism and slavery and described their hostile relationship with the British press.

Mark described the episode as “boring as f***” but he felt that two really important things were covered, he said: “The episode reminded us that imperial context matters.”

Adding: “Although we talk about the Commonwealth in a benign fashion, like the journalist says it’s Empire part two.”

Nadia also added that she was convinced the episode will have a detrimental effect on the docuseries’ viewing figures.

She said: “I think they would have what we call in showbiz a terrible drop in viewing figures.

“The viewing figures would’ve fallen off the cliff in episode three so they are going to have to do something major.”

Fans flocked to their live chat to share very mixed views on the documentary.

One fan said: “It worries me that Harry and Meghan are constantly throwing out criticisms whether it’s family environment etc etc but never seem to be accountable for anything themselves.”

Another posted: “They have such different roles to play … William and Harry.”

While a third added regarding Meghan’s father Thomas: “I don’t know how to feel. [Thomas] had a really bad stroke recently and lost the ability to speak, and even though he only lives 70 miles away she hasn’t visited. If she was a daddy’s girl, wouldn’t she?”

Nadia and Mark’s comments come as the second half of their bombshell documentary was released today.

In new scenes, the royal couple claim that palace insiders were ‘feeding’ stories about the Duchess to the media to deflect from other “less favourable” stories.

Speaking in the episode, Harry and Meghan’s lawyer Jenny Afia said: “There was a real kind of war against Meghan.

“I’ve certainly seen evidence that there was negative briefing from the palace against Harry and Meghan to suit other people’s agendas.”

The Sussexes friend Lucy Fraser also alleged foul play at the palace and claimed: “Meg became this scapegoat for the palace, and so they would feed stories on her whether they were true or not.

“This was to avoid other less favourable stories being printed.”

In previous episodes, Prince Harry has alleged his brother, the Prince of Wales, was treated more favourably and was often protected by palace officials.

In a trailer that aired previously, Harry said: “They were happy to lie to protect my brother.”

The comment was in reference to images of Buckingham Palace and newspaper headlines including one that read: “Queen orders hard Megxit.”

The controversial docuseries has been a major success for the popular streaming service.

The couple signed lucrative deals with Netflix, thought to be worth more than £100m when they quit working as senior royals in 2020.
