A scene from ‘Harry and Megan’

Footage from an upcoming documentary about Harry and Meghan released on Thursday shows the couple are set to once again tackle the subject of their rift with the head of the royal family, and in his own words.

The release of nearly a minute of footage of “Harry and Meghan” by Netflix comes as their relatives – the Prince and Princess of Wales – embark on a US trip to promote the future king’s Earthshot award. The trip to Boston, which is William and Kate’s first since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, was already clouded by tensions with Harry and Meghan stepping down from their royal duties in 2020 and moving to California.

The footage includes photos and brief interview snippets of Harry and Meghan.

“Nobody sees what’s happening behind closed doors,” says the Duke of Sussex as a picture of Meghan crying holding a cellphone is shown. There is the sound of breaking glass and an image of William and Kate appears.

“When the stakes are that high, doesn’t it make sense for us to hear the story,” Meghan says.

The trailer also includes images of the couple in happier times, along with several happy shots of them.

Netflix is ​​pitching the six-part series as “an unprecedented and intense” look at “one of the most talked-about couples in history.” This Netflix documentary, “What Happened, Miss Simone?” is directed by Emmy-winning producer, Liz Garbus.

In 2020, Prince Harry and his wife signed a multi-year deal To produce nature series, documentaries and children’s programming for the streaming service.

The couple has already addressed their problems with the royal family in a bombshell 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.
