The Duke of Sussex has claimed in a new trailer for the second part of a Netflix documentary that people were “happy to lie” to protect his brother, the Prince of Wales.

The next episodes of the six-part series, Harry and Meghan, will explore the couple’s decision to step away from royal duties and make a life in America,

In a 90-second clip, Prince Harry is heard saying: “I wonder what would’ve happened to us had we not got out when we did.”

Meghan said: “Our security was being pulled. Everyone in the world knew where we were.”

Images of a man with his face blurred, a plane flying, Harry filming a video on his phone and newspapers being made also appear in the trailer.

The couple also address their relationship with the Prince and Princess of Wales and the rift that opened since their move to the United States.

The Duchess of Sussex told the camera: “I wasn’t being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves.”

While an image of Buckingham Palace is shown on-screen, Prince Harry said: “They were happy to lie to protect my brother. They were never willing to tell the truth to protect us.”

It is currently unclear who the duke is referring to as “they” in the clip.

The trailer has been released amid fallout over the show’s first three episodes, which were released at 8am last Thursday.

The episodes addressed the couple’s tumultuous relationship with the press, with the Duchess of Sussex accusing the media of wanting to “destroy” her.

The couple has been criticised over the series for apparently attacking British institutions as they discussed their experiences, including racism.

Since leaving the monarchy in March 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed lucrative deals, thought to be worth more than £100 million, with both Spotify and Netflix, with the docuseries being the first major output for them on the streaming giant.

Harry and Meghan Part II will be available on Netflix from December 15.
