The trailer for the much anticipated documentary featuring Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is finally here, and from what it shows, we are likely to witness yet another dispute between the Sussexes and the Firm.
Available on YouTube, the trailer starts with a slideshow of photos of the Duke and Duchess taking a selfie, their wedding day, and separate photos of the two from the time they were young until this very day.
The video gathered over 1.9 million views in just 24 hours and everything indicates that something huge will be revealed in the documentary that will be released on Netflix.
Many believe that the timing for the trailer wasn’t the most suitable one because it overlaps with Kate and William’s visit of the States. The Prince and Princess of Wales are attending the Earthshot Prize Awards in Boston but there are no indications whether the brothers and their spouses would see each other. Many believe that even though sources claimed a family meeting is likely to take place, the trailer might change that.
Speaking of the documentary, 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.”
At the very beginning, Harry could be heard saying, “No one sees what is happening behind closed doors. I had to do everything I could to protect my family,” while Meghan, who was showed wiping tears at one particular moment, says, “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”
Most royal experts condemn the Sussexes for going public about the issues they have with the rest of the royal family, claiming these all-tell interviews during which accusations are brought are something Harry and Meghan should be ashamed of.
“Here it is, the day before Prince William and Catherine’s big royal event in the USA. Bitter Prince Harry and Meghan,” royal expert Richard Eden posted on Twitter.
“I’m appalled by the trailer for Prince Harry and Meghan’s Netflix reality show – and so are Prince William and Catherine’s inner circle,” he added.
“Right on cue, Harry and Meghan drop the trailer for their victimhood fest on Netflix. Shameless,” GB News presenter Dan Wootton said. “Meghan has already destroyed the Markles. Now Harry is trying to destroy the Windsors. Small mercy that the late Queen doesn’t have to live through this.”
The documentary comes after the news of Harry’s new book titled Spare.
According to reports, the upcoming memoir which has been a talking point for quite some time now, will likely create new tensions as Harry is apparently planning on focusing on the rift between him and William, as well as his strained relationship with his father, the King of England.
The publishing company Penguin Random House that will release the memoir claims Harry’s all-tell book will be an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of his life.
“Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,” Random House said in the press release, teasing the book as an “honest and captivating personal portrait.”
The name of the memoir, Spare, might address Harry’s “spare” role as the second son of a King, or that maybe he is being “spared” from the Royal Family now that he has left, Harper Bazaar speculates.
“It’s juicy, that’s for sure,” a NY publishing source shared with Page Six.
“There’s a lot of new stories in there about the past that Harry has not spoken about before, about his childhood … there is some content in there that should make his family nervous,” another publishing insider added.
Further, the magazine reported that Harry has been paid $20 million upfront by Penguin Random House.
According to royal expert Angela Levin, Harry and Meghan are perfectly aware that their documentary, as well as Harry’s book, would anger the members of the Firm and that might be one of the reasons why they allegedly declined the invitation to spend Christmas in Britain and honor King Charles who is hosting the event for the first time as a monarch.
“It’s been said that they’re not coming but it [is] also I think on what the documentary is like whether or not they would be invited at all,” Levein told The Sun.
“It could be a case where the royals don’t want them there after the documentary.”
What’s most, Levin says that Charles, Camilla, and the rest of the royals “want to make it a very positive day after the Queen’s death and I think the Sussexes presence would most certainly dampen that.”
“I think will be a huge relief for the rest of the family.”
Have you seen the trailer already? What do you think of it? Will it worsen the relationship between Harry and his family even further?
