King Charles and Prince William were contacted by Netflix and documentary producers ahead of the Harry & Meghan series' release, a source has claimed.

According to a senior reporter at HuffPost, both offices at Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace were given time to reply ahead of the launch.

Carly Ledbetter tweeted: "NEW: A Netflix source tells me that both King Charles and Prince William's offices were contacted and given time to reply ahead of the release of #HarryAndMeghanNetflix."

The statements comes after Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace claimed today that "no one contacted them" about the content shown in the documentary.

The new series was highly-anticipated and tells being the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's story – including their decision to step down as senior members of the Royal Family in 2020 – in their own words.

Netflix released the first three episodes today, with the final three expected to air on Thursday 15 December.

OK! has contacted Buckingham Palace for comment on the source claims.

Neither Buckingham Palace nor Kensington Palace was given a chance to comment, a ‘senior source’ in the royal household previously claimed, with another saying the Royal Household wasn't contacted either.

This comes despite the Netflix programme placing a banner across the first episode's introduction claiming that the Royals "declined" to comment.

"Members of the Royal Family declined to comment on the content within this series," it read.
