It is thought the docuseries will air next week
The one-minute trailer features never-before-seen private photographs of the couple. It also features footage of Meghan wiping away tears with both hands as they stream down her face, while Harry sits and tilts his head right back, seemingly in distress.
The couple are heard being asked: “Why did you want to make this documentary?”
Harry says “No one sees what’s happening behind closed doors… I had to do everything I could to protect my family”, while Meghan says, “When the stakes were this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”

Fans were quick to comment on Netflix’s official Instagram account, many reacted negatively, as the trailer was released during the Prince and Princess of Wales’ royal tour of Boston, but others couldn’t help but share their excitement.
“So glad they decided to do it. Prince Harry is the first one in his family to step out of that cursed cycle. And for love,” wrote one. A second remarked: “Look what happened to his mom. Can you blame him for protecting his wife and kids?”
“I wasn’t ready,” added a third.
