In the latest teaser trailer for Harry & Meghan, Prince Harry takes aim at Prince William with cutting comments about the Royal Family lying for him.

The second volume of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's documentary is set to be released in just a few days. Ahead of this launch, Netflix has released another teaser trailer that highlights the focus of this volume. 

The trailer has shocked viewers as Prince Harry takes aim at his brother Prince William and suggests that the Palace has covered up and lied for the Prince of Wales. In the trailer, Prince Harry said, "To see this institutional gaslighting..."

It wasn't quite clear what the Prince was referring to until his wife, the Duchess of Sussex said, "I wasn't being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves." This statement suggests that the pair were making comments about the Royal Family - aka 'the firm'- and how the institution protects certain members of the family and not others.

"They were actively recruiting people to disseminate disinformation," said  Christopher Bouzy in the documentary. While it isn't clarified in the trailer who 'they' is, Prince Harry then made a statement that pointed fingers at the royals."They were happy to lie to protect my brother. They were never willing to tell the truth to protect us."

Prince Harry said at the beginning of the dramatic trailer, "I wonder what would've happened to us had we not got out when we did." Meghan then added, "Our security was being pulled. Everyone in the world knew where we were."

"I said, 'we need to get out of here'" said Prince Harry. Another clip showed the Prince on what appeared to be a private jet as he said, "We are on the freedom flight."

In another part of the trailer, Harry said, "I've always felt as though this was s fight worth fighting for." Fans then got a closer view of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's life in California as photos and videos of the couple playing with their children were shown.

The teaser trailer suggests that this series will continue to take place in chronological order. So far, the first volume of the show focused on how the couple got together, and their relationship leading up to their engagement. The third and final episode of the first volume then focused on their wedding and it seems as if this latest installment will pick up right after the couple's wedding in 2018 and focus on the reasons that led them to step down as senior members of the Royal Family.
