For fans of the Royal Family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will soon be releasing a documentary series on Netflix. Industry sources have claimed that the show will be released on Netflix on December 8, 2022.
The docu-series will be centred around Prince Harry and Meghan, and Meghan hinted that the documentary could focus on their love story. In an interview with The Cut, the Duchess said that her five-year-long romance with Prince Harry is one of the “pieces of her life” that she has not yet been able to share with the public.
“The piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see, is our love story,” said the Duchess.
Six months after the couple settled down in California in March 2020, the Royal couple announced their new deal with Netflix, as they wanted to provide “hope and inspiration” through this partnership.
Their company, Archwell Productions, will be making documentaries, feature films, scripted shows, and children’s programming.
The Sussexes said, “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope. As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.”
However, after the Queen’s passing, the Sussexes panicked and were having second thoughts. The couple wanted to tone down even the most basic language and extensively edit the documentary.
Fortunately, the Royal couple decided that they would leave the direction of the documentary to the hands of filmmaker Liz Garbus.
“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,” said the Duchess of Sussex.
Despite the release date being just days away, Prince Harry and Meghan are reportedly still undecided about the name of their new project.
