- Duchess of Sussex, 41, is seen wiping away tears from her eyes in new trailer
- Prince Harry is seen next to her on a sofa leaning back in exasperation
- The couple’s docu-series will debut on Netflix next week
Meghan Markle is seen breaking down in tears in the explosive new trailer for their £88m Netflix docu-series.
The streaming platform released a new 60-second teaser this afternoon for the couple’s documentary before it debuts next week.
The short trailer shows unseen pictures from the couple’s early relationship in 2016 right up until the present day.
In one snapshot moment, the mother-of-two, 41, is seen sitting on a sofa next to her husband and burying her head in her hands.

As Prince Harry leans back on the sofa in exasperation, the former Suits actress gazes down at the floor before wiping back tears.
It is unknown when the footage is taken or what caused the outburst of emotion but the trailer indicates that it was filmed in the aftermath of the couple stepping down as senior working royals in January 2020.
Elsewhere in the clip, Harry’s voice is heard saying, ‘no one sees what goes on behind closed doors’ just before the image flashes up, with others showing Meghan cradling her baby bump and dancing with Harry at their wedding.
In another moment, the Duchess is seen gazing lovingly at her husband from a car door – appearing to wipe back a tear.

A third clip in black-and-white shows the Duchess curled up on an armchair with a £1,260 Hermes blanket.
She is pictured with her head in her hand as she holds up her phone – although it is not clear if the Duchess is breaking down in tears or overwhelmed by happiness.
The advert could hardly come at a worst time for William and Kate, who are on the second day of a visit to the US which has been overshadowed by a Buckingham Palace race row.
The one-minute-12-seconds clip opens with a producer asking ‘why do you want to make this documentary?’ before more than a dozen photos flash up of Harry and Meghan sharing time together, along with one image of the Prince and Princess of Wales.
Harry’s voice is heard saying, ‘no one sees what goes on behind closed doors’, before viewers are shown the photo of Meghan in distress. ‘I had to do everything I could to protect my family’, the duke later adds.
The trailer finally cuts to his wife, who says: ‘When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make sense to hear our story from us?’
The couple’s docu-series lands on Netflix next week
The couple have said they want the public to ‘hear their story from them’ in the trailer
The Sussexes have been paid a rumoured $100million (£88million) for the fly-on-the-wall series, which has left the Royal Family braced for more damaging accusations from the couple.
It comes at an unhelpful time for the Prince and Princess of Wales – whose US tour got off to a tricky start yesterday after a scandal over ‘racist’ comments made by Lady Susan Hussey at an event hosted by Queen Consort Camilla.
Ngozi Fulani said she felt ‘interrogated’ by Lady Susan about what country she came from, despite being born in the UK and stating multiple times that she was British. Officials said they were taking the incident ‘extremely seriously’.
The series if expected to air next Thursday.
As the Sussexes unveiled their glitzy publicity push, William and Kate’s troubles deepened today as one of the UK’s leading lawyers claimed that Lady Susan Hussey also interrogated him about his heritage at the same function.
Nazir Afzal, 60, Chancellor of the University of Manchester and ex-chief prosecutor of the CPS under Sir Keir Starmer, reacted to the row by declaring: ‘Racism is never far away’.
Ms Fulani has made headlines around the world after Buckingham Palace was engulfed in a toxic race row that saw the late Queen’s chief lady-in-waiting – and also Prince William’s godmother – resign after asking her ‘which part of Africa are you from?’
Mr Afzal tweeted: ‘I was at the Buckingham Palace reception at which Lady Hussey questioned the heritage of a brilliant DV expert Ngozi Fulani. She only asked me my heritage once & seemed to accept my answer – Manchester currently!’.
The Royal Family will be braced for further negative headlines when the Sussexes’ Netflix show airs next Thursday.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their deal with Netflix just six months after setting up home in California in March 2020, saying they wanted to provide ‘hope and inspiration’ by teaming up with the streaming goliath.
The Duke and Duchess said their company, unnamed at the time but now known as Archewell Productions, would make documentaries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming.
