For those who have just finished bingeing The Crown, no need to wait for the next series.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s documentary series is set to launch on Netflix on 8 December, industry sources have claimed, although both Netflix and the Sussexes have been pretty tight-lipped about what to expect.

The Sussexes, who are not expected to be at Sandringham for the Royal's Christmas celebrations, will be the primary subjects of the docuseries directed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Liz Garbus.

The untitled documentary series produced by Netflix and Archewell Productions did not set an official broadcast date, however reports suggest the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tried to push it back to 2023 despite the streaming giant paying them a rumoured £88 million for the series.

In October,Page Sixreported that the Sussexes were demanding edits in the wake of the death of Queen Elizabeth in September. According to the rumours, the couple were hoping to take back some of what they said about Charles and Camilla, now King and Queen Consort.

After a lot of uncertainty,People reportedon November 17 that the docuseries will hit Netflix in December 2022 hot on the heels of the new season of Netflix’s The Crown.

Speakingwith The Cutearlier this summer, Meghan Markle denied that the project is a “reality show.” The Duchess noted “a difference between a historical documentary and a reality docuseries.”

Meghan has revealed that viewers can expect “the piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see — our love story.”

Meghan, 41, and Harry, 38, first signed a multi-year deal with Netflix in September 2020. Since then, cameras have been spotted following the royal couple around meaning the doc will most likely follow their lives over the past two years.

The documentary’s director, Liz Garbus, has previously directed films about public figures including Marilyn Monroe, Nina Simone and Bobby Fischer. In an interview withVarietyMeghan said of working with Garbus: "It's nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I've long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it."

"But that's not why we're telling it. We're trusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens."

"It's interesting. My husband has never worked in this industry before. For me, having worked on Suits, it's so amazing to be around so much creative energy and to see how people work together and share their own points of view. That's been really fun."

For those eager for more royal content, Prince Harry’s memoir is also due to hit shelves in January 2023. Earlier this year, Penguin Random House confirmed that the prince will share his story in Spare, a 416-page memoir where Harry reflects with "raw, unflinching honesty."
