Prince Harry releases poignant new photos hours before docuseries launch

The Netflix docuseries Harry & Meghan, starring Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, premieres on Thursday. The Duke of Sussex has shared some moving images in the hours leading up to the premiere.

Harry observed Pearl Harbor Day on Wednesday, a day set aside each year to remember those who lost their lives as a result of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The Duke paid a visit to the Pearl Harbor National Memorial in Honolulu where he met with active duty soldiers and paid respects to those who had died.

Along with Admirals Samuel Paparo and John Aquilino, Harry visited the sites of the USS Missouri and the USS Arizona and ceremoniously laid flowers at the reflection pool as a mark of respect.

The royal was seen saluting staff as he arrived and being shown the memorial, which bears the names of the victims, in the somber images of the event that Archewell released.

Harry was not permitted to salute or wear a military uniform at the Queen’s funeral in September because he had lost his military honors after leaving the royal family. However, a small exception was made when he and the Queen’s other grandchildren gathered to hold a vigil at her coffin.

Harry was observed giving the US salute, which involves turning the palm inward rather than outward.

The images were taken ahead of the release of his documentary series, which follows him and Meghan as they leave the royal family. The first trailer, which debuted on December 1, caused quite a stir, with the Duke commenting: “Nobody is privy to what goes on behind closed doors. I had to take every precaution I could to keep my family safe.”

The eye-opening program, which includes never-before-seen photos and video from their private lives, tells the tale of their well-known romance and the difficulties that ultimately led to their decision to step down as senior royals.

Harry claimed in a second trailer that the palace was “planting stories,” and Meghan insisted that the royal family failed to defend her.

The Sussexes signed a contract with Netflix in 2020; its exact value is unknown, but it is thought to be in the neighborhood of $100 million.

The docuseries’ first three episodes premiered on December 8; the remaining three are scheduled to air on December 15—the same day the Princess of Wales will perform her annual Christmas carol concert at Westminster Abbey. Prince William, the King and Queen Consort, and other members of the royal family will attend the festive event with Kate.

On January 10, 2023, Prince Harry’s eagerly anticipated and “intimate” memoir Spare will also be released. It will give a first-person account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have shaped Prince Harry.
