Between being the outcasts in the royal family and the women who Prince Harry loves the most in his life, Princess Diana and Meghan Markle have a lot in common.

During the second episode of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's bombshell Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, released in part on Thursday, December 8, Harry compared the abuse both his mom and wife have endured at the hands of the paparazzi and public.

"Back in my mom's days, it was physical harassment. They had cameras in your face, following you, chasing you," Harry recalled at the beginning of the second episode, before pointing out: "Paparazzi still harass people."

"To see another woman in my life who I love, go through this feeding frenzy, that's hard," confessed Harry. "It is basically the hunter versus the prey."

Harry's voiceover addressing the harassment played as he and Meghan are driving through New York in November 2021, eight months after the Suits alum admitted she had suicidal thoughts while working as a royal and accused working members of the prestigious family of racism during their shocking Oprah Winfrey interview.
