Prince Harry can be seen laughing after he and his wife are shown a clip of Meghan from before she met the Duke of Sussex, in which she is asked whether she prefers the now-Duke of Sussex or Prince of Wales. In the couple’s new Netflix documentary series, the couple can be seen sat side-by-side as they are presented with a clip on a laptop.
In a clip the couple later realise is from October 2015, Meghan is asked in an interview with a presenter: “Prince William or Prince Harry?”
She then laughs: “I don’t know.”
The presenter then suggests her now-husband, to which Meghan responds: “Harry? Sure.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex quickly realise the interview was recorded “less than a year” before they met in person.
The couple met in May 2016, and are believed to have started dating that July.
They have previously said they were introduced by a mutual friend.
The couple’s engagement was announced in November 2017, and they tied the knot at Windsor in May 2018.
The release of the first three episodes of Harry & Meghan comes just a week after the show was officially confirmed by Netflix.
Rumours surrounding an “at-home documentary” of the Sussexes had been swirling around since May but they had never been confirmed or denied by either Archewell Productions, Meghan and Harry’s production powerhouse created in late 2020, or the US streaming platform.

“Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.”
The Duke and Duchess have since announced two programmes for the platform – Pearl, an animated series following the adventures of a young girl, and Heart of Invictus, a docu-series focused on the uplifting stories of some of the athletes who attended the Invictus Games held at The Hague in April.
While the first one was axed as part of a wider cost-cutting manoeuvre made by Netflix earlier this year, no release date has yet been announced for the second project.
