(AFP) – The British royal family’s apprehensively awaited documentary series about Harry and Meghan will be released on Netflix on December 8, the couple’s biographer announced on Thursday, as the streaming giant released a short trailer.
According to biographer Omid Scobie, this six-part series “will share the other side of their love story and the challenges they faced.”
In the trailer soberly titled “Harry & Meghan” we see black and white photos of the couple scrolling under dramatic music. “No one sees what happens behind closed doors,” Harry said. “I had to do everything possible to protect my family,” he adds.
This announcement comes in the middle of a visit to the United States of Prince William and his wife Kate, in cold weather with Harry and Meghan now settled in California.
The prince’s trip culminates Friday with the second edition of his “Earthshot” environmental award in Boston (northeast).
If “tomorrow is Prince William’s + Super Bowl +, then here’s your halftime show,” Omid Scobie quipped on Twitter by sharing the trailer.
William, heir to the crown, has been notoriously at odds with his brother since last year they revealed with Meghan that a member of the ‘Firm’ questioned their son’s skin color before he was born. , Archie.
Since then, the two brothers have only appeared together on rare occasions, the last time in September, a few days after the death of Elizabeth II, in an icy atmosphere at Windsor Castle.
“When the stakes are so high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our side of the story?” Meghan also says in the trailer which describes the documentary series’ release as a “world event”.
Prince Harry is also due to release his memoirs in early January, again promising his share of embarrassing revelations.
The start of Prince William’s visit to the United States has already been disrupted by a racist controversy at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening. The head of a black mutual aid association claimed that, during a reception, the prince’s godmother and close friend of Elizabeth II, Susan Hussey, asked her insistently where she was “really” from.
