Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netlfix release date and full trailer have dropped and fans are chomping at the bit ahead of the hotly anticipated new series. As more information about what the show will include is revealed, here's everything you need to know about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix series.

Hot off the press, merely days after the first look at Harry and Meghan's Netflix series, the streaming giant has revealed the full trailer. After news that Prince Harry and Meghan's TV show was delayed, with reports citing ongoing drama over The Crown season 5, the wait is finally over. 

It's been confirmed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netlfix docuseries will. be released on December 8 and you better hold onto your hats because according to the full trailer - it's about to get pretty rowdy.

Prince Harry, who's the main narrator of the trailer, discusses the "pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution," in what seems to be a reference to his mother Princess Diana, and his own wife Meghan too. 

In the first trailer, an image of Prince William, Princess Kate, and Camilla Queen Consort - staring coldly into the distance - made it pretty obvious that the series is going to be no-holds-barred. For the Sussexes, this means that no filter will be applied to their account of why they stepped down as working royals - including taking aim at members of the Royal Family.

During one moment in the trailer, an image of senior royals standing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace is shown. While this photo is on screen, Prince Harry discusses not only his family but also the inner workings of The Firm - including some pretty intense allegations.

The Prince says, "There's a hierarchy of the family. You know there's leaking, but there's also planting of stories."

Other commentators in the trailer address the experience the royal couple had, adding, "It's about hatred. It's about race." Allegations regarding racism within the Royal Family, made by Meghan and Harry during their explosive Oprah Winfrey interview, shook the institution's foundations.

So much so that an official statement was released by Buckingham Palace, on behalf of the Queen, two days following the interview. The statement addressed the issues raised by the royal couple, “particularly that of race,” saying they were concerned. They also added, "while some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”

Despite this statement and Prince William saying saying that they're, "very much not a racist family,” a recent incident of racism experienced by a guest of an event at the palace has backed up the Sussexes claims.

Ngozi Fulani, of Sistah Space, Britain’s leading domestic abuse charity for Black women, revealed that she was asked racially charged questions by Lady Susan Hussey during an event in Buckingham Palace.

The former lady in waiting to the Queen, who has since stepped down, repeatedly questioned where exactly Ngozi came from and what her 'nationality' was, as well as touching her hair. The charity boss later likened the incident to, "an interrogation," when discussing the altercation.
