Netflix has unleashed the dramatic first trailer for its upcoming Meghan Markle and Prince Harry documentary series, Harry & Meghan.
Promising to offer up the “full truth” on the couple and their decision to “step back” from the British royal family, who is alleged to have “berated” the couple. “It’s really hard to look back on it now and go, ‘What on earth happened?'” asks Harry in the voiceover for the trailer. “There’s a hierarchy of the family. You know, there’s leaking, but there’s also planting of stories. … It’s a dirty game.”
In the trailer, Harry compares how his wife was treated in the press to how his mother Princess Diana was treated. “The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution, this feeding frenzy… I was terrified,” he said. “I didn’t want history to repeat itself.” He teased that “no one knows the full truth,” but he and Meghan do.
The six-episode series has been split into two halves, with volume one set to arrive on Dec. 8, and the second volume to follow on Dec. 15. Directed by Liz Garbus, who previously helmed the Oscar-nominated Nina Simone documentary What Happened, Miss Simone?, the series promises commentary from friends and family who have “never spoken publicly” about Harry and Meghan’s relationship with the royal family. “The series does more than illuminate one couple’s love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other,” the synopsis reads.
