In case you missed it, the trailer for Harry and Meghan's Netflix documentary landed this week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to release a warts and all look at their lives and the hardships they endured being part of the British Royal Family. The multi-million dollar deal with the streaming site has proven to be about as divisive as you'd imagine.

While some have thrown their full support behind Harry and Meghan, others have not been so enamoured by the pair.

Discussing the upcoming doc, and whether it was planned that the trailer would drop to coincide with Prince William and Kate's visit to the states, The View host Ana Navarro said she was sick of seeing them both crying all the time.

You can see what she had to say below:

She said: "First of all, I think Netflix is great at marketing and I think Harry and Meghan are great at marketing themselves.

"They have done — they've now earned tens and tens of millions of dollars out of their story, which they have been telling, it seems to me, for years now, and they're very good at it.

"So I don't know if they had the power to tell Netflix, 'Drop it when my brother is here', but I think they probably did have the power to tell Netflix, 'Don't drop it when my brother is here'.

"But I think it was smart marketing, you know, we're talking about it because it coincided with that.

"I just wish that every time I saw Meghan and Harry they weren't crying and wiping away tears, and they were giving me something positive."

However, co-host Sunny Hostin said the release of the doc was timely following the recent allegations of racism made against late Queen's lady-in-waiting, Susan Hussey.

Hussey has since resigned and apologised after a Black guest at a reception hosted by Queen Consort Camilla was upset after she was repeatedly asked where she 'really came from'.

Hostin said: "I do think that, Princess, or Duchess at this point, Meghan told you exactly what was happening within the Royal Family. She told everybody that there was racism.

"She told everyone that she was the target of death threats and racism repeatedly, that the family refused to protect her."

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said the incident was totally unacceptable.

"We take this incident extremely seriously and have investigated immediately to establish the full details," it said.

"In this instance, unacceptable and deeply regrettable comments have been made.

"We have reached out to Ngozi Fulani on this matter, and are inviting her to discuss all elements of her experience in person if she wishes.

"In the meantime, the individual concerned would like to express her profound apologies for the hurt caused and has stepped aside from her honorary role with immediate effect.

"All members of the Household are being reminded of the diversity and inclusivity policies which they are required to uphold at all times."
