A picture depicting how paparazzi hounded Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for a snap in their Netflix documentary was actually taken at Harry Potter premiere.

A report by The Sun revealed that the streaming service used a fake photograph in the forthcoming film Harry and Meghan based on the lives of Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The said image showing rows of photo-hungry photographers getting the best shot of the couple was in fact trying to capture the cast of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: Part Two.

The snap, which was taken five years before Harry and Meghan met, comes right after the father-of-two says in the voice over: “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”

Now, Royal expert Ingrid Seward has claimed that Netflix using a fake image in the docuseries has “weakened” the claim of Harry about protecting his family.

“I don’t imagine Harry would have realised, but Netflix have been careless here as it weakens Harry’s comment about protecting his family. This fake picture weakens his point,” he said.

The image in question also features The Sun photographer Doug who confirmed to the outlet that the picture was captured at the movie premiere where there were “no members of the Royal Family.”

“In the Netflix trailer it’s implied the photographers, including me, were trying to get a shot of the royal couple — but that’s nonsense,” he said.

“For a picture from that premiere to turn up in this trailer about Harry and Meghan seems like lazy picture research,” he added.
