The latest trailer for Netflix’s ‘Meghan & Harry’ docuseries has been released today ahead of the final three episodes airing later in the week.

The next episodes of the duke and duchess’s six-part Netflix series, are set to explore their decision to step away from royal duties and make a life in America.

In the 90-second clip posted to Twitter, Prince Harry is heard saying: “I wonder what would’ve happened to us had we not got out when we did.”

In the trailer released on Netflix the subtitle reads “They were never willing to tell the truth to protect us."

Meghan Markle adds: “Our security was being pulled. Everyone in the world knew where we were.”

The duke also can be heard saying: “I said, ‘We need to get out of here’.”

Images of a man with his face blurred, a plane flying, Harry filming a video on his phone and newspapers being made also appear on screen.

Meghan and Harry also address their relationship with the Prince and Princess of Wales and the rift that has opened since their move to the US.

The duchess tells the camera: “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves.”

While an image of Buckingham Palace is shown, Harry adds: “They were happy to lie to protect my brother [William].

“They were never willing to tell the truth to protect us.”

However, in the trailer on Netflix’s own website the subtitles read different, it instead says “The British media are happy to lie to protect my brother” while Harry can clearly be heard saying “they”.

GB News' royal reporter Cameron Walker spotted the conflicting subtitles, tweeting images of the two trailers adding: "Spot the difference… Prince Harry is recorded saying 'They were happy to lie', but the Netflix website version of the trailer has different subtitles. Some will question if this is providing more context for the Duke’s complaint."

Viewers were quick to take to Twitter after picking up on the inconsistencies, with one user saying: “Which is it, the media or his family? Sussexes need to name names instead of just throwing ‘they’ around without any receipts.”

Another wrote “This is an open declaration of war against his brother.”

The clip has been released amid the fallout over the first three episodes, which were released at 8am on Thursday.

The first three episodes addressed the couple’s tumultuous relationship with the press, with the Duchess of Sussex accusing the media of wanting to “destroy” her.

The couple have been criticised over the series for apparently attacking British institutions as they discussed their experiences, including racism.

They officially left the monarchy on March 31 2020 after opting for personal and financial freedom over remaining working royal family members.

Harry and Meghan signed lucrative deals, thought to be worth more than £100 million, with Netflix and Spotify after quitting, with the docuseries the first major output for them on the streaming giant.

Harry & Meghan Part II will be available on Netflix from December 15.

Netflix has been approached for comment.
