Harry & Meghan trailer: What to expect from the Netflix documentary?
The documentary by Netflix promises to give us a no-holds-barred insight into the private life of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle since their wedding in May 2018. The royal couple is in charge of the narrative as they begin to reveal what happened behind closed doors that led to their seemingly drastic decision, also termed Megxit by the British press.
In the teaser, the couple is asked, “Why did you want to make this documentary?” Harry replies, “No one sees what’s happening behind closed doors.”. “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”
Meghan adds, “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”
The teaser is emotional and gives an intimate look into the life of the Sussexes and what we can expect from the documentary.

The project is helmed by the Oscar-winning director Liz Garbus. Meghan, in her latest interview with Variety, revealed the reason behind collaborating with Garbus on such an important topic. She stated, “It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director (Garbus) whose work I’ve long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it. 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.”
Netflix has not released a specific date but full documentary is slated to be released soon on the streaming platform.
In 2023, we can expect to find a lot more about the couple’s life as Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, also hits the stands on January 10.
