Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have provided their perspectives on the royal 'hierarchy' matter in the upcoming trailer for their docu-series set to hit Netflix on December 8.
In a new Netflix video, the 38-year-old Duke of Sussex discussed how the pair ultimately decided to step aside from their senior royal duties due to the dynamics of the British royal family and the "dirty game" with the media.
Harry & Meghan, the couple's much-awaited series, will premiere on queues on Thursday, according to the worldwide streamer, who made the announcement early on Monday morning.
"It's really hard to look back on it now and go, what on earth happened?" Harry said in a voiceover with clippings of him and Meghan riding in a car.
Video from the day Prince Harry and Meghan announced their engagement in November 2017 was edited into the piece, followed by footage of some of her earliest royal appearances. A reporter added, cutting to footage of supporters waving Union Jack flags and yelling, "Meghan, we love you," "She's becoming a royal rockstar."
"And then," Meghan, 41, said while relaxing on a recliner next to Harry, as the trailer zoomed to their kiss outside St. George's Chapel on their May 2018 wedding day.
The camera cut back to the scene to her Netflix interview, where she snapped before the screen went black and Prince Harry said, "Everything changed."
"There's a hierarchy of the family," Harry said, as the trailer flashed to footage of the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace at Trooping the Colour in 2019.
"You know, there's leaking, but there's also planting of stories," he said, as the clip showed a press pack and footage shot from above of Harry and Meghan with son Archie, now 3, while the duo was on their tour of Africa later that year.
"There was a war against Meghan to suit other people's agendas," Video showing the Duchess of Sussex being obviously unhappy, of a guy picking up a newspaper, and of a pregnant Meghan placing down a laptop near Harry, who hid his face in his hands, were cut over by a pundit in the documentary series.
Prince Harry stressed, "It's a dirty game."
