Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been seen for the first time in public since the first release of their Netflix documentary series.
The couple were in New York on Tuesday evening for the Robert F. Kennedy Ripple of Hope Award Gala in New York City, during which the Sussexes received the Ripple of Hope Award.
On Thursday, the first episode of their documentary series aired, not one week after the first trailer whipped people into a frenzy. Of course, what will happen between them and the rest of the Royal Family in the aftermath of the documentary is anyone’s guess.
Harry and Meghan have largely been focusing on their new business ventures, which include recording podcasts and writing books.
Now, a new picture from the New York gala seems to reveal precisely how the two are feeling given their hectic schedule and all the controversy they’re caught up in …
This week is release week for Harry and Meghan. Their Netflix documentary series dropped yesterday, following the two trailers that were given extensive press coverage around the world.
Suffice it to say, the British Royal Family has cause for concern.
The first trailer opens with a woman’s voice asking why Harry and Meghan started their journey in the first place. Then, some personal photos create a slideshow, including a picture of Harry playing guitar and he and Meghan taking a selfie on holiday.
The slideshow also features a picture from the couple’s 2018 wedding celebration and another from when Meghan was pregnant.
“No one sees what is happening behind closed doors,” Harry says. “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”
The teaser trailer – which gained almost two million viewers in 24 hours – continues with a time-lapse of photos of both Harry and Meghan, from when they were children up to this point. Everything indicates that something big indeed will be revealed in the documentary series.
“When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?” Meghan says in the trailer.
Regarding what the documentary series will be about, a Netflix spokesperson said: “In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.”
The timing for the Netflix series has not been well-received by everyone. Especially not considering that Prince William and Kate were in the US for the Earthshot Prize Awards in Boston at the time.
