Netflix has released two trailers for the upcoming documentary series about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Sussexes have already come under heavy criticism for the series, after its first trailer dropped while William and Kate were in the US.

Suffice it to say, the trailers have been contentiously. Not only regarding the timing of their release, but also due to the subject matter. Harry & Meghan have included many never-before or rarely-seen pictures in it – and one in particular has drawn the eye of the public.

In it, the couple are pictured at Buckingham Palace. According to The Telegraph, they took the photo without asking the most important person’s permission first.

On December 1, the first trailer for the upcoming Netflix documentary series about Harry & Meghan aired.

Released on YouTube, it opened up with a woman’s voice asking why Harry and Meghan embarked on their journey in the first place. Then, some personal photos create a slideshow, including a picture of Harry playing guitar and he and Meghan taking a selfie on holiday.

The slideshow also features a picture from the couple’s 2018 wedding celebration and another from when Meghan was pregnant.

So why are they doing all that they’re doing?

“No one sees what is happening behind closed doors,” Harry says. “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”

The teaser trailer – which gained almost two million viewers in 24 hours – continues with a time-lapse of photos of both Harry and Meghan, from when they were children all the way up to this point. Everything indicates that something big indeed will be revealed in the documentary series.

“When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?” Meghan says in the trailer.

Regarding what the documentary series will be about, a Netflix spokesperson said: “In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.”
