The second part of the docu-series surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has been released to users of the streaming site Netflix. The second half of the programme, which cover the couple’s experience at the forefront of royal life from around the time of their Royal Wedding in 2018, have demonstrated an escalation in the fierce allegations made against the Firm and the press by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The new revelations from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex come as Kate, Princess of Wales, is set to make a heartfelt tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II in a special festive carol service later today.

The first half of the programme debuted on the entertainment giant’s platform on December 8. 

The Netflix release has coincided with Together at Christmas, the special service held at Westminster Abbey for the second year spearheaded the Princess of Wales.

This year’s carol service has been dedicated to the late Queen Elizabeth II, who died in September earlier this year.

As host, the Princess of Wales is expected to pay tribute to the late Queen, celebrate the values she has lived by throughout her life and honour the work of community leaders across the UK. 

The service is to be broadcast as part of a Christmas Eve special on ITV1 – Royal Carols: Together at Christmas.

The service will also be attended by King Charles, the Queen Consort, the Prince of Wales and other senior members of the Royal Family.

It is not the first time Kate’s royal engagements have been seemingly overshadowed by the explosive Netflix series as a US tour conducted by the Prince and Princess of Wales coincided with the release of Harry & Meghan’s dramatic first-ever teaser trailer.

The minute-long promotional video showcased new photos of Prince Harry and Meghan since their departure as senior working royals, as well as older images of them alongside Prince William and Kate.

The pictures were interjected by interview clips of the Duke and Duchess. Prince Harry said: “No one sees what is happening behind closed doors.”  

As the trailer concluded, Meghan asked: “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?”

The teaser trailer was released on December 1, as the Prince and Princess of Wales were conducting a three-day visit to Boston ahead of the Earthshot Prize awards ceremony.

The trip marked the couple’s first visit to America in over seven years, since their trip to New York in 2014.

The day after the trailer dropped, the Princess of Wales conducted a solo engagement at The Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, as part of her ongoing work to promote the importance of early years care.  

Meanwhile, the Prince of Wales visited the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, where he was given a tour and later met with President Joe Biden.

The couple reconvened to attend the Earthshot Prize award evening together, where the five winners of the environmental scheme founded by Prince William were announced.

Harry & Meghan is the first programme released on Netflix as part of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s partnership with the entertainment giant.

The two royals struck a deal with Netflix in 2020, after they stepped down as full-time working members of the Firm.

The pair, through their video production company Archewell Productions, are known to be working on another project for Netflix – Heart of Invictus.
