Netflix on Thursday sent the Internet reeling with the trailer for a new series revolving around Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The preview sets the table for the six-part docuseries Harry & Meghan.
Oddly, Netflix rolled out the trailer before announcing a release date for the docuseries. However, the timing makes sense in light of the prince and princess visiting Boston for a trip based around Prince William’s Earthshot Prize.
It’s “the most prestigious global prize for the environment,” according to the Prince and Princess of Wales’ foundation website.
The Sussexes are probably releasing the docuseries as a response to the landslide of criticism that keeps buffeting them.

In a documentary that aired a few years ago on London’s ITV, Markle admitted she received warnings about the tabloids. The message they sent was that she shouldn’t marry Prince Harry.
“It’s hard,” Markle said. “I don’t think anybody could understand that. In all fairness, I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand here, but when I first met my now-husband, my friends were really happy because I was so happy, but my British friend said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great, but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life.’”
She added that she “didn’t get it” because she’s an American and not used to the tabloid scene. Now, of course, she surely gets it. The lady can’t get a break.
However, not everyone hates Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. As is obvious, because they’re about to be honored with the prestigious Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award. And, despite what Ms. Schofield said, the Sussexes are continuously involved in philanthropic pursuits. This is clearly documented on their official Instagram account, @sussexroyal.
