When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been quiet for a while, that only means one thing - they're busy cooking up a storm. In the aftermath of 'Megxit,' the ex-royals have found plenty of ways to shock the world. From the explosive Oprah interview to the announcement of Harry's tell-all memoir, the couple is committed to telling their side of the story, taking no prisoners along the way. With their new Netflix trailer, we're finally being given a glimpse into their next project - a reality/documentary series of their lives. The one-minute may not appear to provide us with much in the way of content, but we're sensing many bombshell revelations to come...
"Why did you want to make this documentary?" a producer asks in the trailer background while a glamorous photo of the couple appears on screen. "No one sees what's happening behind closed doors," Prince Harry can be heard saying off-screen. "I had to do everything I could to protect my family," he continues while sitting in a confessional setup. As a slideshow of photos is shown, the music tone sharpens as a picture of William and Kate appears. If anyone was hoping this show would extend an olive branch to the future King and Queen, this trailer suggests otherwise. "When the stakes are this high, doesn't it make more sense to hear our story from us?" Meghan concludes.
Appropriately titled Harry & Meghan, the six-episode series has no confirmed air date as of yet. That being said, Page Six has reported a December 8 release date. According to the official synopsis, "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."
Behind the camera, the critically-acclaimed Liz Garbus will be directing. "It's nice to be able to trust someone with our story," Meghan told Variety in October. "A seasoned director whose work I've long admired. Even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it," Meghan said of 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." Love or hate the couple, something tells us we'll all be tuning in. Stay tuned.
