    • Society & Culture

Did sexism play a role in the coverage of Meghan Markle? When Harry and Meghan got married in 2018, the coverage of the pair was overwhelmingly positive. Six months later it had totally changed. Why? Amol Rajan explores the emergence of the ‘Duelling Duchesses’ narrative, which pitted Meghan Markle against Kate Middleton. Was this just a familiar misogynistic narrative designed to sell papers?

This five part series ask you to question what you think about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Why did the coverage of Meghan Markle turn so sour, so quickly? In this series, you’ll hear from the people who wrote this very modern drama: the reporters, columnists and broadcasters who shape public opinion on royalty. Allegations of sexism, racism and strategic leaks – we examine them all.

Presenter: Amol Rajan
Producer: Phoebe Keane

Material from:
Oprah with Meghan and Harry, by Harpo Productions for CBS
