A further three episodes are set to be released on December 15.

Meghan and Harry have vowed to tell details of their “love story” in their own words.

In one shock clip, the Duke and Duchess claimed they “weren’t allowed to tell our story” while working members of the royals.

Harry echoes her thoughts, saying “we’ve never been allowed to tell our story”.

One candid chat saw Meghan and Harry reveal details of their first date.

She says: “He kept texting ‘I’m in traffic, I’m so sorry’.”

Harry jumps in: “I was panicking, I was freaking out. I was sweating.

“I didn’t know him so I was like: ‘Oh is this what he does. Got it. This I’m not doing,'” Meghan adds.

Harry jumps in with: “What’s that supposed to mean?” Meghan replies: “A guy with such an ego that any girl would sit around and wait for half an hour for you. I’m not interested in that.”

The duke goes on to say: “And then I walked in sweaty red mess and she was like: ‘Oh that’s not what you are’.”

“That’s not what you’re like. You were genuinely so embarrassed you were late,” Meghan says.

Netflix has promised the series will “explore the span of their relationship, from the early days of the couple’s courtship to the challenges and controversies that prompted them to step back from the royal family”.

Two teaser trailers have already caused a stir at the Palace.

The Duchess is seen sobbing on a phone call with her head in her hands in one image.

In another, Prince Harry is seen blasting the Royal “hierarchy” before Meghan sobs “they’re never going to protect you”.

Harry also references his mother Diana’s death throughout, stressing: “I didn’t want history to repeat itself.”

Referencing his mother further in the second trailer, the Duke goes on to blast the Royal Family’s treatment of women.

He claims: “The pain and suffering of women marrying into this institution, it’s a feeding frenzy.”

And the Duke even goes so far as to claim wife Meghan did not feel safe in the Firm when he erupts: “They’re never going to protect you.”

The bombshell six-part series has already been hit with criticism as it grapples with a “fakery” storm.

At least four images used to promote the controversial docuseries are not what they seem, while one other has been selectively edited.

This is despite Meghan and Harry repeatedly claiming that they want to reveal the “truth”.

The series is directed by Academy Award–nominated and Emmy-winning director Liz Garbus.

Their previous director – Oscar-nominated Garrett Bradley – reportedly quit over creative differences.

Having previously directed the critically acclaimed series Naomi Osaka, Garrett was approached by Netflix for Harry and Meghan.

Due to be a look-inside to the Sussexes’ life, Garrett allegedly wanted to film at the couple’s home but the three butted heads over it.

It is claimed the former actress and Harry fell out with Garrett over the vision of the project and refused to have it filmed inside their house, according to Page Six.

A TV insider said: “Garrett wanted Harry and Meghan to film at home and they were not comfortable doing that.

“There were a few sticky moments between them, and Garrett left the project.

“Harry and Meghan’s own production company captured as much footage as they could before Liz Garbus was hired.”

However another source claims Liz also clashed with the couple after they wanted to heavily edit the documentary – which is unwelcome as it needs translating into other languages.

Insiders say Harry and Meghan always avoided criticising the Queen but later wanted to make changes because it’s too critical of the new King and Queen Consort.
