Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's brand new Netflix documentary has been released – and it's causing quite a stir. A question is posed at the very start of the trailer, with the couple asked why they are making the six-episode documentary.

Following a montage of images, Prince Harry can then be heard saying: "No one sees what's happening behind closed doors. I had to do everything I could to protect my family."
