Prince Harry and Meghan new Netflix series: trailer released for “Nelson Mandela-inspired” documentary | Ents & Arts News

A trailer for a new Netflix series hosted by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has been released, with climate change activist Greta Thunberg and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern among the figures talking about “life stories inspiring”.

Live To Lead is a documentary show which Prince Harry says was inspired by the late Nelson Mandela, and the promotional clip includes footage of the former South African president and anti-apartheid campaigner.

As well as Ms Thunberg and Ms Ardern, other figures covered include US social justice activist Bryan Stevenson, former US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, South African lawyer Albie Sachs and Captain of the South African rugby union team.

A tweet from the streamer contained the one minute 39 second clip with the words: “Their voices give us hope. Their actions shape our world. Their leadership inspires our future.”

The trailer release comes just days after the second batch of three episodes of the royal couple’s series Harry & Meghan aired on the streaming service.

The programs contained new damaging allegations against the Royal Family, as the Sussexes also denounced their treatment at the hands of the press.

The second volume of Harry & Megane went much further than the first, Harry accusing William to shout and yell at him at a summit meeting on “Megxit”, and to say that he believes he and his wife lost their baby in 2020 because of the coverage in the Mail.

Other revelations included Harry saying a joint statement had been released without his permission on his and his brother’s behalf, denying a story that William had ‘bullied’ him out of the Royal Family.

He also accused William’s office of swapping stories – something they ‘promised’ never to do when they were younger.

Buckingham Palace has not responded to the latest allegations nor complaints a week earlier.
