“They were happy to lie to protect my brother, they were never willing to tell the truth to protect us,” Prince Harry says in the latest explosive instalment of the series that has proven to be one of the most talked about documentaries of recent times.
The one-minute 23-second trailer appears to ramp up the tension from the first three episodes of the series which were released last Thursday and were primarily focussed on the relationship between the pair, their relationship with the press and how they believed that race played a part in the media coverage of them.
“I said, ‘We need to get out of here,'” Harry says in the trailer while Meghan says: “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves.”
In the trailer Harry talks of “institutional gaslighting” and he questions “what would have happened to us had we not got out when we did?”
The second three parts of the series are to be released at 8am UK time on Netflix on Thursday 15th December and seem likely to attract as much, if not more press attention than the first three episodes released last week.
New audience data on Netflix viewing showed that the first episode of Harry & Meghan attracted 2.4 million viewers on launch day last week, with 1.5 million watching episode two and 800,000 the third instalment. The numbers were higher than those for Netflix’s flagship royal drama The Crown.
