Reports suggest that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s much-anticipated Netflix docuseries will air on the streaming site in December. Netflix is yet to confirm the rumours, but many sources are claiming that the series will be released on December 8th, 2022.
Harry and Meghan signed a multi-million deal with Netflix shortly after stepping down from their royal duties as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The coupe will work closely with the streaming giant to produce several projects, including scripted shows, children’s programmes and, of course, documentaries. These projects will be spearheaded by Archewell Productions, which is owned by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Back in August, Meghan revealed that the docuseries would shed light on her relationship with Prince Harry. Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, rumours began circulating that Harry and Meghan had been waiting to release the series until the monarch had passed away. It was also claimed that the series would include content from Harry’s recent memoir Spare.
The show is expected to cause turmoil for the Royal Family. Some royal commentators have speculated the series could frame the Royals as a hostile institution, while others have claimed that the Queen’s death prompted the couple to reapproach their portrayal of the late monarch.
In an interview with Sky News Australia (via Express), expert Prue MacSween speculated: “The public has turned really well and truly now with the death of Her Majesty. There was so much love for that woman and sympathy for her, and know, I think that he’s seen what he’s done, and I think that he’s probably lamenting it.”
