BBC's royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell hits back at Sussexes' Netflix ... trends now

BBC's royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell has hit out at Meghan Markle's claim that anyone was 'out to destroy' her as 'absurd'. 

He quoted one of Meghan Markle's statements in the first three episodes of the Netflix documentary released yesterday which said 'no matter what I did they were still going to find a way to destroy me.' 

Referring to the Duchess's allegation, Mr Witchell said: 'The first point who is they she is referring? I think it is the Palace but most particularly the press. But the idea that anyone was out to destroy her frankly I think is absurd and simply does not stand up to proper and reasonable scrutiny.'

It came another BBC journalist Mishal Husain said 'recollections may vary' in response to Meghan and Harry's claim their interview with her following their engagement was 'staged'.

'No matter what I did they were still going to find a way to destroy me,' Meghan said in the docu-series

Mr Witchell described the docu-series as 'relatively benign so far' as he appeared on the News at Six last night.

'Now if you were watching these three hours without all the surrounding noise you might think this was a rather touching love story of a couple seeking happiness but of course there is no escape from that surrounding noise,' he said. 

'And I think Buckingham Palace on the central and most central and most sensitive issue of race will be relieved there is no new explicit allegation against the royal family – though Harry does say there is a huge level of unconscious bias.

'His main complaint – and it is a familiar one – is of press intrusion. And this suggestion that there is, what amounts really to a conspiracy between the Palace and the press. And that I think is where credibility is really stretched beyond what is reasonable.

'Consider one of the things that Meghan said – 'no matter what I did they were still going to find a way to destroy me.' 

'The first point who is they she is referring? I think it is the Palace but most particularly the press. 

'But the idea that anyone was out to destroy her frankly I think is absurd and simply does not stand up to proper and reasonable scrutiny'

But he said, Meghan and Harry 'obviously are convinced that they were victims.'
