Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix show drops December 8

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s highly anticipated Netflix docuseries will hit the streaming platform in the US on December 8, according to Page Six.

This would mean the series would premiere locally the next day, on Friday, December 9.

It was initially thought that the show’s release would be delayed due to backlash over the most recent season of The Crown, but Page Six confirmed last month that the streamer would be moving forward with a December release date.

The series, which will showcase the ousted royals’ “love story,” was once called “Chapters,” sources said, but it is believed the couple changed their mind. The new title has not yet been made public, Page Six reports.

Last week, Page Six revealed that Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, had dropped the project’s original director, Garrett Bradley, over differing opinions and brought in Liz Garbus instead.

The former Suits actress told Variety in October: “It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story – a seasoned director whose work I’ve long admired – even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it.”

The series has been at the centre of much speculation since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a multimillion-dollar deal with Netflix and started filming last year.

The couple, who left the UK for California in early 2020, were “having second thoughts” on the project following the Queen’s death, a source said last month.

“Harry and Meghan are panicked about trying to tone down even the most basic language,” the insider said.

Another source later told Page Six that much of the show “contradicted” what the Duke wrote in his upcoming memoir, Spare, which will be released on January 10, 2023.

Netflix executives have yet to even discuss the docuseries’ existence, but Meghan spoke about it in an interview with The Cut in August.

“The piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see, is our love story,” the former Suits star told the magazine.

Harry and Meghan tied the knot in May 2018 and welcomed son Archie and daughter Lilibet in May 2019 and June 2021, respectively.
