Netflix First look at Harry and Meghan's Netflix documentary

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s highly-anticipated Netflix documentary series is coming this Christmas.

Harry & Meghan, a six-part series, will be released in two volumes and the couple are promising to reveal “the truth” about their tumultuous relationships with both the Royal Family and the press.

With unprecedented access, the series will include interviews with the couple, their friends and family and gives them an opportunity to reveal what it has really been like dealing with constant press scrutiny and often near-hysterical criticism from parts of the media.

The series will reveal why the couple opted to step back from their royal duties, reflect on the Royal Family's relationship with the press and more broadly the series will look at “our world and how we treat each other”.
