Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix series: everything you need to know

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s highly anticipated Netflix series premieres Thursday, more than two years after the royals signed a major deal with the streaming giant.

Called “Harry & Meghan,” the series, directed by Oscar-nominated director Liz Garbus, will be divided into six episodes. The first three episodes will air on Thursday at 3 a.m. EST, while the next three episodes will air on December 15.

Like the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, no one has seen advanced screenings of the show, so it’s unclear exactly what bombshells are coming.

The couple’s photo booth photos are featured in the trailer for their upcoming Netflix series.

When does the series air?

The series airs in two batches. The first three episodes will be released on Netflix on December 8, and the last three episodes will air on December 15.

While much attention was paid to the timing of the first sneak peek for the Netflix series, which dropped on the second day of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s trip to Boston, December 15 will also be a significant date for the family. real.

King Charles III, Queen Camilla and Prince William will reunite on December 15 for Kate Middleton’s “Royal Carols: Together At Christmas” at Westminster Abbey. Buckingham Palace said Tuesday that the service will be dedicated to the late Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September.

“Harry & Meghan” promises to give audiences a glimpse into their struggles within the royal family.

What is “Harry and Meghan” really about?

In a statement released by Netflix, the streaming giant says the docuseries will explore “the other side” of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s “high-profile love story.”

It promises to give the public a look at their struggles within the monarchy, which will ultimately lead to the couple stepping back as working members of the royal family in March 2020 and moving to North America.

The series will also interview experts on the British monarchy and the royal family’s relationship with the media and promises to include “commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never before spoken publicly about what they witnessed.” That could mean we hear from Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, who has never spoken to the press.

What have we seen so far?

Netflix has released an official teaser and trailer for the series. “Why did you want to make this documentary?” asks a voice in the teaser.

“No one sees what goes on behind closed doors,” Harry replies, as never-before-seen personal photos of the couple flash on the screen. “I had to do everything possible to protect my family.”

The Duchess adds: “When the stakes are so high, doesn’t it make sense to hear our story from us?”

In the official trailer, released on Monday, Harry talks about the leak and the seeding of stories in the media, calling it “foul play.”

At the end of the clip, he declares: “Nobody knows the whole truth. We know the whole truth.”

Have Meghan and Harry said anything about the show so far?

In an interview with Variety in October, the Duchess said: “It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story, an experienced director whose work I’ve admired for a long time,” referring to Garbus. She voiced her comments by saying, “even if it means it might not be the way we would have told it.”

Meghan said: “But that’s not why we counted it. We are entrusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens.”

He also added that the experience has been “interesting” as Prince Harry has “never worked in this industry before.”

“For me, having worked on ‘Suits,’ it’s amazing to be surrounded by so much creative energy and to see how people work together and share their own perspectives,” Meghan continued. “That’s been a lot of fun.”

Has the royal family said anything about the docuseries?

Not officially, but that could all change on Thursday when the first three episodes drop. After Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah, it took Buckingham Palace almost two days to issue a response to the claims made in the interview.
