The Royal Family is “steeling” itself ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming documentary. A aide said the Netflix show would be treated with “the slight spirit of tedium”.

Last week saw the release of the first tailer for “Harry and Meghan”, in which the Duke of Sussex complained that “no one sees what’s happening behind closed doors”.

The minute-long video featured footage of the Duchess of Sussex appearing to cry into her hand and, separately, the Princess of Wales staring into the camera.

Netflix has described the series, which is split into six parts, as “an unprecedented and in-depth” look at “one of the most-discussed couples in history”.

In the second trailer, released today, Prince Harry described what he called the “dirty game” of “leaking” and “planting” stories within the Royal Family.

A Buckingham Palace aid has conceded that the Royal Family is undergoing “challenging times”, describing a particularly “bruising week”.

The source told the Times: “We’re steeling ourselves for what’s coming in the slight spirit of tedium.

“It’s a curious-looking form of privacy they’ve sought.”

The last comment is a nod to the Duke and Duchess’s apparent desire for increased privacy following their stepping-back from royal duties.

The Netflix show’s official synopsis notes: “The series explores 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.”

Its first three episodes will be released on December 8.

The final three will then air on December 15.

The latest trainer ends with Prince Harry insisting: “No one knows the full truth.

“We know the full truth.”

Christopher Bouzy, founder of online “disinformation” tracker Bot Sentinel and supporter of the Duke and Duchess, also features in the trailer.

When discussing pressures faced by the royal couple, he claims: “It’s about hatred. It’s about race.”

This and other talking points likely to be featured in the highly-anticipated documentary is likely to trigger debates on the Royal Family both in the UK and the US, where Harry and Meghan now live.
