The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story in the new in-depth documentary series Harry & Meghan. The hotly anticipated tell-all hits Netflix on December 8th. It’s going to rock the world.

Across six episodes, the series explores the clandestine days of their early courtship and the challenges that led to them feeling forced to step back from their full-time roles in the institution. With commentary from friends and family, most of whom have never spoken publicly before about what they witnessed, and historians who discuss the state of the British Commonwealth today and the royal family’s relationship with the press, the series does more than illuminate one couple’s love story, it paints a picture of our world and how we treat each other. From the critically-acclaimed, two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning director Liz Garbus, Harry & Meghan is a never-before-seen look at one of the most-discussed couples in history.

One watch of the trailer and our mind jumps to a newspaper printing press, churning out headline after headline about the divisive royal couple. For decades, the monarchy has been hanging on by a thread, but this may well be the thing that finally demolishes the archaic institution.

Will sharing their story help the Duke and Duchess find the peace and freedom they’re searching for? It’s hard to say, but one thing is for certain: between this and Harry’s forthcoming memoir Spare, releasing one month from the series premiere, the monarchy will dominate discussion this holiday season—be it international tabloids, talk shows, or around the dinner table.
