At the time, they shared their plans to ‘carve out a progressive new role within this institution’, while also becoming financially independent.
A year later, following a move to the US, the couple sat down with Oprah Winfrey for an explosive interview, during which they made several claims about the royal family.
But they’re now allowing fans to have an even more in-depth look at their lives with their upcoming Netflix docuseries, which currently goes by the title Harry & Meghan.
Watch the Harry & Meghan trailer here…
The trailer dropped on December 1 and shows candid snaps of the couple, as well as an unseen pregnancy photo of Markle, 41.
Dramatic music plays throughout the one-minute peak of the six-part series, while at one point, the Duchess appears emotional.
In one scene Prince Harry, 38, says: “No one sees what’s happening behind closed doors.
“I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”
While in another, Markle explains why they decided to make the series.
She says: “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”
Netflix promises that the docuseries will be ‘a never-before-seen look at one of the most-discussed couples in history’.
After watching the teaser, many fans have taken to Twitter and admitted that it left them emotional.
“We gonna cry a lot I just know it,” one tweeted.

Another added: “Can’t wait to see this the people’s Prince and Princess.”
Someone else commented: “WOW what a trailer, I cannot wait!”
While a fourth said: “After everything these two have been through together the past 6 years I love the fact that they’re able to tell their own story.”
Alongside a ton of heart eye emojis, another wrote: “I can’t stop watching the trailer.”
Prince Harry and Markle signed their multiyear $100 million Netflix deal back in 2020.
At the time the couple stated (via Hello! magazine): “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.”
They went on to add that the streaming platform’s ‘unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action’.
In a recent interview with Variety, the Duchess went on to add that she ‘trusts’ Netflix to tell the couple’s story.
The docuseries was directed by award-winning director Liz Garbus, who has won two Emmys.
