Harry and Meghan's new award slammed: 'It was a spectacle of hate towards a family'


    During the interview, released globally in March, Meghan said the treatment she had received from the press and members of the royal family made her feel like she “just didn’t want to be alive anymore”. Prince Harry also revealed that within royal circles there were “concerns and conversations about how dark his [Archie’s] skin might be when he’s born.”

    The claims made by the couple caused a major scandal for the Royal household and divided the nation in support or hatred of Harry and Meghan, with some questioning whether their claims were true.

    Four months on from the interview we asked our readers whether it deserves to win an Emmy for outstanding hosted non-fiction series or special.

    In a poll held by Express.co.uk from 10.45am July 14 to 08.18am July 15, a staggering 98 percent of the 15,688 readers who answered said the interview did not deserve to win an Emmy.

    Only 1.8 percent said it did, and 0.2 percent said they didn’t know whether it should or not.

    Many readers jibed that the interview should instead be nominated for best fiction.

    One reader, Wrathful, commented: “That wasn’t an interview, it was a spectacle of hate and lies towards a family.

    “Any decent person would not spew that vitriol on Global TV, they would discuss and air their grievances in private.”

    Many readers thought the question of whether the interview deserved to win had a blindingly obvious answer, with Euroroi commenting “How can you even pose such an idiotic question?” and MargoTru saying, “Is this a joke?”

    The Emmy Awards will take place on Sunday 19 September at 8pm ET (midnight in the UK).
