After leaving the royal family, the two then signed a multi-year deal with Netflix in September 2020.
As The Royal Observer previously reported, Meghan, 41, spoke out about what people can expect when it airs.
"It's nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I've long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it," Meghan said of working with Oscar-nominated director Liz Garbus. "But that's not why we're telling it. We're trusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens."
"It's interesting. My husband has never worked in this industry before," she continued. "For me, having worked on Suits, it's so amazing to be around so much creative energy and to see how people work together and share their own points of view. That's been really fun."
Prince Harry was "frantically" asking Netflix to "postpone the production."
“Harry simply does not want it coming out before Christmas," an insider dished.
Now, it seems like the show must go on, as the docuseries and Harry's upcoming memoir, Spare, which comes out in January, were supposed to be released at the same time.
“A lot in the show contradicted what Harry has written, so that was an issue,” a source told Page Six. “Then Harry and Meghan made significant requests [to filmmakers] to walk back content they themselves have provided, for their own project.”
The royal family is less than pleased with Harry's latest antics, but it sounds like he's doing everything he can to make sure everyone's happy.
“They’ve both agreed to reach a neutral ground by softening the parts on Charles and adding intimate details about [Queen Elizabeth II's] legacy,” an insider told Us Weekly of the pair's upcoming documentary and Harry's memoir.
Ultimately, the duo want the series to be “interesting without crossing a line."
“He’s so grateful to Meghan for her input and they make all of these big decisions together, so of course there’s that balancing act of weighing up pros and cons to consider,” the insider noted. “And it goes the other way, too — he’s equally involved in her big picture, they’re very much at one that way and maintain they always will be.”
