“I wonder what would have happened to us if we hadn’t come out when we did,” the Duke of Sussex says at the start of the 90-second clip.
He then speaks of “institutional gaslighting”, before the Duchess adds: “I was not thrown to the wolves. I was fed to the wolves.”
“They were happy to lie to protect my brother,” Harry continues, referencing Prince William, against images of Buckingham Palace and newspaper headlines including: “Queen orders hard Megxit.”
“They never wanted to tell the truth to protect us.”
It is unclear who the Duke is referring to as “they”.
On January 8, 2020, the Sussexes revealed that they intended to “step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work towards becoming financially independent”.
They officially left the monarchy on March 31, 2020, having opted for personal and financial freedom rather than remaining working members of the royal family.
“In order for us to move on to the next chapter, you need to complete the first chapter,” Harry said.
Leaving the UK “gave us the chance to create this home that we had always wanted,” says Meghan.
“I always felt like it was a worthwhile fight,” the Duke adds.
The pair has defended the decision to give the streaming giant an intimate glimpse into their private lives – with the show including personal clips and stills from their time as senior royals.
