Harry and Meghan on Netflix trailer

At the beginning of the Harry and Meghan trailer, the prince muses, "It's really hard to look back on it now and go, 'What on earth happened?'" He goes on to refer to the "hierarchy" within his family, and Meghan later says, "I realized, they're never going to protect you." But now, they can tell their "full truth."

The first Harry and Meghan teaser trailer offered a startlingly intimate portrait of the couple, with never-before-seen images of their courtship. Meghan is seen wiping away tears, while Harry fiercely declares, "I had to do everything I could to protect my family."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix deal

In September 2020, months after they had stepped down from the royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Archewell Productions signed a multiyear deal with Netflix that would pay them to make documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming. While no monetary figure was confirmed, sources at the time said the deal was worth over $100 million.

However, the deal has yet to yield any completed projects and the Harry and Meghan docuseries will be the first to stream. Meghan's animated series, Pearl, was canceled before it was even made. Harry's Invictus Games documentary is reportedly still on track, and other projects are said to be in the works.
