Americans are lauding Harry and Meghan after their bombshell Netflix special released, hailing the 'fairytale' couple who are 'winning the PR' battle, a US correspondent has claimed.

Noel Phillips, speaking to Good Morning Britain, said while there have been 'mixed reviews' in the royal couple's new home country, their story has been 'resonating' with the public.

Meanwhile in Britain, the series has been met with an outcry, with calls from ministers to boycott Netflix and strip the pair of their titles.

Phillips told viewers: 'Mixed reviews so far, but the overwhelming feeling is that the couple are winning the PR brand management strategy.

'Harry and Meghan are not just rewriting the royal narrative that we all know of their lives so far, but they are creating this brand new American fairytale and it seems to be resonating with a lot of people.

'I spoke to one woman earlier today who told me she was in tears watching the series, "they are just couple goals", she went on to say.

'Another man said, "I was expecting a lot of drama and for tea to be spilled". I assume he's referring to the accusations of racism and bullying.

'He then went on to ask me: "Is your country really that prejudiced and outdated when it comes to race?"' 

Phillips then said he spoke to an unnamed family member of George Floyd after Meghan spoke out after his death about the injustices faced by black people in the US.

The family member told Phillips of the royal pair: 'We will gladly take them if Britain don't want them.'

The public mood reflects the fawning media reaction in the US, while on the other side of the pond the couple were lambasted for speaking out against the family. 

The first three episodes of the six-part series aired Thursday morning.

Morning show hosts like Meghan's friend Gayle King on CBS said it was a 'good thing' the couple was 'finally' being allowed to have their 'say' - despite having previously told their story to Oprah, and recounted it in episodes of a Spotify podcast. 

CBS foreign correspondent Holly Williams gushed that it was a 'beautifully produced' series that shows the inner workings of a couple in love and 'victimized' by the press.
