The documentary series of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, one of the most anticipated premieres of the season, will arrive on the Netflix platform in exactly one week. As if that were not enough with the existing expectation, the streaming service has published a preview of the production to warm up engines and, above all, to portray the royal couple in their most affectionate and spontaneous facet.
Although the former actress said at the time that her love story with the youngest son of King Charles would not be the central axis of the documentary, the truth is that the company has shared a series of images in which Harry and Meghan bring out their most complicit, romantic and playful side, while showing scenes of their idyllic day to day in California, where they have lived for two years with their children Archie and Lilibet.
The six episodes that make up this Netflix original production, which finally responds to the title of ‘Harry and Meghan’ and not ‘Chapters’, as rumored at first, address the discreet beginnings of their courtship and their attempts, unsuccessful, to keep it secret in order to avoid public scrutiny, especially that of the always aggressive British tabloid press. The Dukes are also sincere, with the invaluable help of their most faithful relatives and friends, about their controversial decision to leave their royal functions after several clashes with certain high levels of Buckingham Palace.
The series, directed by renowned filmmaker Liz Garbus, is the result of the lucrative agreement that Harry and Meghan signed with the streaming giant for the creation of numerous contents. Another of those projects, the animated series ‘Pearl’ conceived by the Duchess of Sussex, did not suffer the same fate and was canceled in the middle of pre-production. The couple’s communicative business does not end there, as Meghan savors these days the successes harvested by her podcast ‘Archetypes’, available on Spotify, while Harry will publish in January his first memoir: a tome that will lead him to settle accounts with the Windsors about his secondary role in the institution and, also, for the contempt with which Meghan was received by the most conservative establishment.
