Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to be the subjects of new bombshell revelations in a forthcoming German documentary. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who stepped down as senior working royals, before moving to Montecito, California, where they now live with their two children, will be the focus of a new show.

Journalist and royal expert Ulrike Grunewald will present the documentary, which promises to uncover "fresh secrets" about the royal couple. The programme is being produced for Germany's ZDF network, with Ulrike having previously collaborated with the network on royal specials.

Reports suggest that the journalist travelled to California with a team of five people to investigate Montecito and gather information from the neighbourhood where the couple resides with their two children, Archie, 5, and Lillibet, 2.

The documentary will feature insights from experts and journalists, including former Fleet Street royal reporter Richard Mineards.

In his latest column, Richard wrote: "Los Angeles-based producer Melanie Hillmann grilled me for two hours on my Riven Rock neighbours, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, under director Ulrike Grunewald. The interview is airing in due course as part of a prime-time documentary on ZDF Royal."

Ulrike has produced several royal documentaries, including 2009's The Windsors, as well as The Queen in 2015 and a TV show titled How German is the Queen?

In 2020, she worked on Man Fergie! – The Duchess and the Secret of the Windsors, and in 2021, she produced the documentaries Princess Diana's Dangerous Legacy and The Queen and the Power of Images.

The journalist and filmmaker had the opportunity to speak with Prince Harry in Dusseldorf during the Invictus Games last September.

At the time, she observed: "Now that Meghan is here, he is over the moon. They have been holding hands, cheering competitors on at various matches and games. They seem intimate and very close. Either that or they are very good actors. From where I've been watching, they seem very in love."

It comes as Prince Harry continues to make the most of his solo trip to the UK this week. The youngest son of King Charles is said to be in ‘very high spirits’ despite him confirming that his father is too busy to meet with him during the three day visit.

Today, May 8, the Duke will give a reading at a service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral marking the decade anniversary of the competition's launch.
