Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed in a 2018 ceremony that broke several royal traditions (from the lack of a classic "balcony kiss" to Meghan's American citizenship) and since then, the couple has continued to make headlines due to reported family tensions, racially-biased treatment, and pushing back against royal protocols. Some of these headlines have been supportive, but many were not — the Duke of Sussex ended up having to sue British publication Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL) for libel after they alleged that he kept secrets and manipulated public opinion to reinstate his family's police detail.

Thanks to mass public interest and media coverage, speculation has been one of the common themes of the many narratives surrounding Harry and Megan. The couple has since chosen to take back their voice and speak out against the challenges of their time as senior members of the Royal Family — first in their shocking two-hour interview with Oprah, and now in their upcoming documentary series with Netflix. Here is everything we know about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's docuseries, "Harry and Meghan."

What is the documentary about?

Although Harry and Meghan's lives have been widely covered and discussed over the past five years, the series promises an "unprecedented" look at the couple's love story and what happens to them behind closed doors.

According to Netflix, the documentary will span from the Sussexes' controversial early courtship to their decision to release their royal duties and shed their HRH titles. The streaming platform promises interviews with historians, journalists, and family and friends who haven't spoken publicly about Harry and Meghan's relationship — until now.

Who is producing and directing the series?

Harry and Meghan signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract with Netflix back in September 2020 that allowed the media company permission to create original content including but not limited to documentaries, movies, and children's programming.

Liz Garbus, Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director, sat at the directorial helm of Harry & Meghan with support from executive producers Erica Sashin, Mark Monroe, Dan Cogan, Ben Browning, Chanel Pysnik, Jon Bardin, Mala Chapple, and Angus Wall. The series was initially going to be directed by Garrett Bradley, who left due to creative differences.

When is the release date?

All six episodes of the highly-anticipated series will be dropping on Thursday, December 8th, as exclusively revealed by Page Six, despite rumors that the show would be delayed due to the Queen's death and backlash from the most recent season of “The Crown."

Is there a trailer?

Yes! Netflix finally dropped the trailer for "Harry and Meghan" the morning of December 1st, and it's racking up hundreds of thousands of views by the hour.

"Why did you want to make this documentary?" asks a voice at the beginning of the 1:12 minute-long clip. "No one sees what's happening behind closed doors," said Harry. "I had to do everything I could to protect my family." The trailer gives us a glimpse into the intimate documentary series with clips of Meghan crying on the phone as well as the Sussexes enduring an emotional moment on a couch together.

At the end of the trailer for the docuseries described as unprecedented and explosive, Megan Markle is shown in a solo interview as she asks, "When the stakes are this high, doesn't it make more sense to hear our story from us?"

What other projects are Meghan and Harry currently working on?

After leaving their senior royal roles behind, the couple moved to Montecito, California, and started Archewell Productions. They are currently raising Archie (3) and Lilibet (1) as well as focusing on individual projects such as Meghan's Spotify podcast Archetypes and Harry's upcoming memoir, Spare, which will be released on January 10, 2023.
