Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's rumored docuseries will explore "where they’ve come from, what they’ve been through, and where they are," a source has claimed.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix show has been the source of much speculation. 

The docuseries will reportedly follow the couple at home, giving viewers an insight into their everyday lives as a family. Page Six reports that acclaimed Handmaid's Tale director Liz Garbus is at the helm.

Inevitably, there are likely to be some insights into Harry and Meghan's decision to leave the Royal Family, which a source close to the project has elaborated on. 

“This is about where they’ve come from, what they’ve been through, and where they are,” said a source familiar with the Netflix show, according to reporting from The Telegraph (opens in new tab)

“I think it will explain a lot about the decisions they’ve had to make and how they’ve ended up here.”

While the docuseries is yet to be confirmed by the Sussexes or Netflix, an industry insider revealed to The Telegraph that it looks likely that the documentary will drop in December 2022. However, there has been some "back and forth" regarding dates. 

Reporting from US publication Page Six also suggested that the release date is still currently up in the air.

"There is a lot to organize and a lot of things at play here. Netflix wants to make sure they get in there and don’t get scooped [by Prince Harry's memoir]," a source told the publication. The publication also suggested that producers are pushing for the new Harry and Meghan documentary to tie in with The Crown series 5.

It looks as if we're likely to get a much greater insight into both the public and private lives of the Sussexes as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix documentary, Heart of Invictus, which followed the Invictus Games, is already in production and Harry is also set to release an "accurate and wholly truthful," royal memoir later this year.

While Meghan Markle's animated series Pearl was ditched by Netflix before it even began production due to the streaming giant's cutbacks, if the reports of this fly-on-the-wall documentary are true, it could mark their biggest collaboration yet.
