In it, Prince Harry says: “It’s really hard to look back on it now and go, ‘what on earth happened?’

“There’s a hierarchy of the family, you know there’s leaking, but there’s also planting of stories.

“It’s a dirty game. The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution, this feeding frenzy.”

As he speaks, images of Princess Diana as well as Meghan Markle being followed by paparazzi appear on the screen, there are also sound bites from various media commentators sharing opinions on Markle.

Harry says he “didn’t want history to repeat itself”, alluding to his own mother's death.

Meghan Markle later says she realised she would ‘never be protected’ by the Royal Family.

Harry then continues “I was terrified, I didn’t want history to repeat itself.”

The trailer ends with Prince Harry saying: “No one knows the full truth. We know the full truth”.

Billed as a Netflix Global Event, the streaming giant has promised an “unprecedented and in-depth documentary series” over six episodes where the couple “share the other side of their high-profile love story”.

Volume one of the series will launch on December 8 – exactly three months after the death of Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth – with the second volume to be released on December 15.
