There is already a deep divide between Prince Harry and his older brother, Prince William, and it seems like it is about to get even more profound. In the new Volume II trailer of the Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan, we finally get some answers from the Duke of Sussex himself.
Prince William is first in line to succeed King Charles III. Harry revealed a significant part of the royal rift in the latest trailer of the docuseries. “To see this institutional gaslighting…They’re happy to lie to protect my brother, but they were never willing to tell the truth, to protect us,” Harry announces in the trailer. Meghan offers a more emotional take on events as she says, “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves. I was being fed to the wolves.”
The trailer also mentions the royal family “practically recruiting people” to generate untrue stories about the Duke and Duchess. Harry tells viewers that the same family gladly protects William but never offers him this security.
This gives audiences a hint of things to come in the series’ second volume, which premieres on Thursday, December 15. While the first episodes focused on the early part of Harry and Meghan’s relationship, the next ones will highlight the couple’s 2020 decision to step down from their royal responsibilities and move to the United States.
Harry’s relief in relocating to Montecito, California, is palpable in a self-recorded clip as he states, “We are on the freedom flight!” The Sussexes have established a (seemingly) happy life in America. In the trailer, Meghan says, “It gave us a chance to create that home that we have always wanted.” Her husband’s take on the move to the United States with his family: “I’ve always felt as though this was a fight worth fighting for.”
Harry and Meghan have called the Netflix series a chance to tell their story and correct the false narratives woven against them. If the royal family is indeed responsible for any such activity, that story will take on new depth.
