The new trailer for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix series, Harry & Meghan, is narratively focused on the royal drama and overall toll that women, including Meghan, face for marrying into the royal family. But nestled in the midst of the intense quotes and imagery is footage of Meghan, heavily pregnant with the couple’s second child, Lili, walking over to Harry, who is pictured on his laptop. You can catch it at the 0:28-second mark.

Meghan and Harry struck their deal with Netflix in 2020. Meghan welcomed her and Harry’s second child, daughter Lilibet “Lili” Diana, on June 4, 2021, making it likely the company was already filming them for their docuseries, the first part of which premieres this Thursday, Dec. 8.

In the trailer, Meghan and Harry discuss how much they were attacked by the British press, and how little protection the royal family offered them despite that.

“There’s a hierarchy of the family,” Harry says. “You know there’s leaking, but there’s also planting of stories [in the British tabloids].”

“It’s a dirty game,” he continues. “The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution is a feeding frenzy.”

Meghan adds at one point, “I realized they’re never going to protect you.”

During the couple’s Oprah interview in March 2021, filmed while Meghan was also pregnant with Lili, Meghan touched on her one regret with the royal family: believing they would help her.

“My regret is believing them when they said I would be protected. I believed that,” she said. “And I regret believing that because I think had I really seen that that wasn’t happening, I would have been able to do more. But I think I wasn’t supposed to see it. I wasn’t supposed to know. And now we’re actually on the other side, we’ve actually not just survived but are thriving. This? Miracles. I think that all of those things I was hoping for have happened.”
