In the short but intense promo, the couple accuses the family of "leaking" and "planting" stories in the press, failing to protect Meghan, and playing a "dirty game" that puts women who marry into the family, including the late Princess Diana, and Markle, in serious physical and mental health danger.
"It's really hard to look back at it now and go, what on earth happened?" Harry states at the start of the promo, which includes press clips hailing Meghan as a "rockstar "royal. "You hear that? That is the sound of hearts breaking all around the world," says a voice. "And then," Meghan says, "everything changed," added Harry.
"There's a hierarchy of the family. There's leaking, but there's also the planting of stories," Harry says. Then experts hypothesize that the "abuse" of Meghan was rooted in racism. "It's a dirty game," added Harry. "The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution, this feeding frenzy." The Sussexes' lawyer Jenny Afia, is also featured, saying: "There was a war against Meghan to suit other people's agendas."
"I realized, they're never going to protect you," the Duchess said, wiping tears from her eyes. "I was terrified. I didn't want history to repeat itself," Harry added, referencing the death of his mother, Princess Diana. The trailer ends dramatically with Prince Harry saying, "No one knows the full truth. We know the full truth."
The Netflix series will be released in two segments, each with three episodes. Volume 1 will be available on the streaming service on December 8 and Volume II a week later on December 15.
