It will reportedly follow them through some of their exploits and adventures since moving to the United States after stepping down as senior royals.

A statement from Netflix notes that the show will focus on “the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution. With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family’s relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple’s love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other.”

Markle told The Cut, “The piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see, is our love story.” She said that a theme is the “resounding knowing that, above all, love wins ... I hope that is the sentiment that people feel when they see any of the content or the projects that we are working on.”

She added, “When the media has shaped the story around you, it’s really nice to be able to tell your own story.”

As for what exactly is included, cameras have been spotted following the Sussexes during the 2022 Invictus Games, as well as a trip to New York City in September 2021.

Who is the director for Harry and Meghan's Netflix series?

The couple hired director Liz Garbus to helm the show.

Markle previously told Variety, “It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story—a seasoned director 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.”

She added, "It’s interesting. My husband has never worked in this industry before. For me, having worked on Suits, it’s so amazing to be around so much creative energy and to see how people work together and share their own points of view. That’s been really fun."

Garrett Bradley, director of Netflix documentary Naomi Osaka, was previously slated to direct the project, but reportedly parted ways with the Sussexes over creative differences.
