As Prince William and Princess Kate take Boston by STORM heavy rainfall so-so rainfall barely a light drizzle, Netflix has released the first trailer for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s reality show, I mean, docuseries. You may be thinking that Harry, Meghan, and their PR team are cackling into the morning Montecito air over their trailer snatching the attention away from P. Willy and Kate’s three-day tour through the land of Dunkin. But according to sources, Harry and Meghan were trying to get Netflix to push the release of their docuseries into next year because they wanted to tone down what they’ve said about the Royal Family following the death of THE QUEEN. But Netflix needs to get their money’s worth from the multi-year deal they signed with Harry and Meghan two years ago, so they’re reportedly releasing the whole thing on December 8th. And this morning, the first trailer came out. So if the trailer cuts out while you’re watching it, that’s probably just from Meghan sneakily pulling the plug on Netflix’s server as Harry plays lookout.
Harry and Meghan are producing several projects for Netflix through their Archwell productions, but one of their projects, an animated show called Pearl, was canceled while in the development stage. And the making of Harry and Meghan’s docuseries hasn’t gone smoothly either. The series first director, Garrett Bradley, left that shit after clashing with Harry and Meghan over the tone of the show. Director Liz Garbus, who also worked on Pearl, was brought in to finish the series. And whether Harry and Meghan like it or not, it’s coming out. The teaser trailer for Harry & Meghan further proves that Meghan is the #1 user of the black and white filter on Apple Photos, and it also shows Harry and Meghan talking about leaving life as senior royals. The trailer ends with Meghan dropping this dramatic nugget, “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?” Maybe I’m as high as the stakes, but I thought they had already told their story in an Oprah interview, in magazines, on a podcast, and in Harry’s upcoming memoir. Sorry, Falkor, but I guess Harry and Meghan’s story is the real NeverEnding Story!
Netflix doesn’t confirm that Harry & Meghan is coming out on December 8th. They only say that it’s “coming soon.”
In the teaser trailer, there’s a moment where Harry is saying in a voiceover, “No one sees what happens behind closed doors,” as we’re shown a picture of Meghan crying while holding her phone before it cuts to Kate throwing an ice cold glare at the camera. THE DRAMA! Meghan had Andy Cohen on her podcast, Archetypes, this week and told him that she has no plans to do a reality show. Well, sorry to break it to you, Meghan, but this is some beautifully messy Real Housewives shit:
And as for those palm trees I mentioned in the headline, during Meghan’s interview with The Cut, she said that while looking at the Montecito mansion she and Harry now live in, they noticed that in the backyard were two ass-to-ass palm trees (the two palm trees were intertwined at the bottom). When Meghan first saw them, she said to Harry, “My love, it’s us.” But yet, that important symbol of love doesn’t make one appearance in the teaser trailer! Maybe Netflix knows that’s what the people really want to see, and in the season finale of Harry & Meghan, they’ll be seen strolling through their backyard before she says, “Oh look, my love, it’s our palm tree twins.” And just as the camera is about to pan to the trees, the screen will quickly fade to black, and the dramatic words “To be continued…” will pop up. The cliffhanger of all cliffhangers!
