Harry and Meghan will go behind the scenes into their lives

Simply titled "Harry & Meghan," the Netflix docuseries about Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex looks like it's going to bring the drama if the first teaser is any indication. It starts with someone asking "Why did you want to make this documentary?" followed by a number of sweet, candid pictures of the couple and then Prince Harry says "No one sees what's happening behind closed doors." Right after that, there's a cut to a slightly ominous looking shot of William, Prince of Wales and Catherine, Princess of Wales, which makes it seem that they're definitely going to be bringing up some of the rift between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royal family. They could be spilling some more tea about the challenges they faced within the royal family, potentially in regards to both racism and mental health challenges, both of which they brought up in their (in)famous interview with Oprah.

"I had to do everything I could to protect my family," Prince Harry goes on to say. With pictures of photographers and piles of newspapers in the teaser, the issues of how the media covered Harry and Meghan seems like it will also be featured. It ends with a shot of Meghan saying, "When the stakes are this high, doesn't it make more sense to hear our story from us?"

Royal fans are beyond excited for the series to air

"Harry & Meghan" is rated MA and it will be available on Netflix starting December 8. Netflix hasĀ confirmed the series will be six episodes long, and it will cover "the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution."
