According to Elle, this is Meghan Markle and Harry like you have never seen them before.
Here comes Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix blockbuster
Netflix has unveiled Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s series’ release date.
Volume one of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s six-episode docuseries, which is titled Harry & Meghan will begin streaming on Netflix on December 8th.
Volume 2 will premiere on December 15th.
According to facts published by lifestyle website, People, the intimate first look at the documentary series will shed light on the highs and lows of the couple’s love story. In a new trailer released alongside the premiere date, Harry says, ‘Its really hard to look at it now and go, ‘what on earth happened?’
In a voice over, Harry says, ‘The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution- this feeding frenzy,’ as footage shows Princess Diana and Kate Middleton followed by photographers.
Meghan then says, ‘I realized, they’re never going to protect you.’
Referring to his late mother Princess Diana, ‘I was terrified and I didn’t want history to repeat itself.’
‘No one knows the full truth,’ Prince Harry adds.
‘We know the full truth.’
This project is the brain child of Oscar-nominated director Liz Garbus, whose previous celebrity-focused features include Love, Marilyn, What Happened, Miss Simone and Becoming Cousteau.
According to Netflix, "the series explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution.”
"With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family's relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple's love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other,” Netflix adds.
Meghan, 41, and Harry, 38, first signed a multi-year deal with Netflix in September 2020. At the time, The New York Times reported that the Sussex's production hub, later christened Archewell Productions, would exclusively create documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows and children's programming for the popular platform.
Meghan briefly spoke about what audiences can expect to see in the docuseries in an October interview with Variety.
"It's nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I've long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it," the Archetypes host said of working with Garbus. "But that's not why we're telling it. We're trusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens."
"It's interesting. My husband has never worked in this industry before," she continued, referencing the entertainment business. "For me, having worked on Suits, it's so amazing to be around so much creative energy and to see how people work together and share their own points of view. That's been really fun."
