Harry and Meghan Netflix Episodes: It all kicks off today with the first three episodes of the six-part series. On December 15th, the second half of the series will be available on the streaming service. On Thursday morning, the rest of the world will be tuning in to watch the premiere, and rumour has it that Buckingham Palace staff will be doing the same.
Yesterday, a former royal aide pushed for a response from Buckingham Palace to the series and for the lifting of non-disclosure agreements so that those who worked with the couple could speak out.
There has been no word yet on whether or not the royal family will issue a statement. The Palace did issue a statement after Harry and Meghan’s Oprah Winfrey interview last year, in which the couple claimed a Royal Family member made comments about what colour their son’s skin might be before he was born, so this may be the case if the allegations are serious enough.

Harry and Meghan Episode One
When the couple’s final two weeks of royal duties in March 2020 concluded, Prince Harry was the first to appear on camera, filming himself as he and Meghan Markle prepared to depart the United Kingdom. Meghan, filmed in Vancouver, Canada, says, “I just want to get to the other side of all of this.” The words just won’t come to me anymore.
‘My job,’ Harry continues, ‘is to ensure the safety of my family. Because of my birth into this position and all the baggage that comes with it, as well as the rising tide of anti-Semitism in the last three years, I worry about the safety of my wife and son.
After establishing the show’s premise, Meghan and Harry take viewers back to the summer of 2016 when they first met, while Meghan was taking a break from filming the smash US legal drama Suits. For her “single girl summer,” as one of her friends put it, she jetted off to Europe.
“Meghan and I connected via the photo-sharing app Instagram. Harry: “I was scrolling through my feed, and someone I knew had this video of the two of them as a Snapchat [filter]. “That was the initial step. “Who is that?” I exclaimed. To prove her point, Meghan said she had looked through the prince’s Instagram account, where she saw his “beautiful photography, environmental shots, and time he was spending in Africa.”
Harry and Meghan Episode Two
Doria is interviewed at the beginning of the second episode; she states that the past five years have been “challenging” and that she “wants to have her voice heard.”
“He was this 6 foot, 1 inch, handsome man with red hair,” she recalled of their first encounter. Excellent manners, that’s for sure. In a word, he was pleasant. And the two of them were quite content in their partnership. This man was the one.

Mom and Meg look back on Meghan’s Californian upbringing, complete with a reunion with her former principal, photos from back in the day, and testimonials from her classmates and teachers about the future duchess’s remarkable talents. The impact of race in their own lives and in the coverage of Harry and Meghan’s romance is also discussed. I told her it was about race, and Doria reflects.
The episode follows Meghan from before she met Harry, covering topics such as her relationship with her father, her charitable and volunteer work, and her jobbing actress life before landing her breakthrough role on the US legal drama Suits. She had “so much freedom” and “such a beautiful life” in Toronto before “everything exploded” during filming.
Harry and Meghan Episode Three
This third episode follows the Sussexes from the time of their engagement announcement in 2017 until the day before their wedding in May of 2018.
Author Afua Hirsch writes that the British Empire was “fueled” by the Atlantic slave trade and “financed by kings and queens right up until its abolishment” in the early 1900s. It could have signalled that the Royal Family had “caught up with the rest of Britain,” as David Olusoga, author of Black and British, put it at the time.
Later in the episode, the characters discuss how Princess Michael of Kent embarrassed the Queen by wearing a ‘Blackamoor-style’ brooch to the Christmas luncheon. One of Harry’s “biggest regrets” is the time he dressed up as a Nazi for a party.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reflected on their first public appearance together, a walkabout in Nottingham. Prior to the event, Meghan admitted that she was unprepared and lacked knowledge of the proper protocol, attire, and expectations. But she came through with flying colours despite her fears, and the audience ate it up. Despite the advice of a former aide to “play the game,” the couple continued to feel harassed by the media.
The episode’s high point comes when Meghan recalls her first Christmas at Sandringham, where she was seated next to the Duke of Edinburgh and thought it went “really well.” Prince Harry is also very vocal about how proud he is of his military service, particularly his two tours of duty in Afghanistan, which he says allowed him to see and do things that his immediate family never had the opportunity to do.
Episode three ends with people’s excitement on the wedding day, setting up next week’s episode four.
