Read to find out when the highly anticipated documentary by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be released.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been busy with establishing themselves on an individual basis ever since they officially exited the Royal family in 2020. Alongside, the couple have clearly indicated that they intend to speak about their experience within the Royal family.

As such, the release date for one of their ventures through Netflix has been revealed, and it is not too far away.

Potentially impactful releases

After the release of the documentary, the much anticipated memoir of Prince Harry titled Spare will be released on 10 January. Ever since the announcement, there has been a consistent level of discussion focused around the contents of the memoir.

Tom Bower, a Royal biographer noted that the Prince's book is essentially a 'time bomb,' reports Page Six. It was previously reported that Prince Harry was set to rewrite certain parts of the book following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

This essentially prompts the question of what exactly is going to be removed, as there are many directions the Prince could take, particularly in terms of his feud with Prince William, reports Us Magazine.

Bower said:

I think that everybody knows that the Sussexes can’t amend the book in any way,” he opines. “Can they make it nastier? Because otherwise, we wouldn’t get sales.

He added:

And there’ll just be more material about how they were snubbed and all the rest of the invective against the royal family, so I think to that extent, the delay will add to the poison.

Although no one has received an advance copy of the book, it was reported that King Charles III 'felt betrayed' by Prince Harry and Meghan, especially as it was assumed that the monarch shared a warm relationship with Meghan, which was showcased as he walked her down the isle, reports Yahoo! Life.

Bower further spoke to The Mirror stating that King Charles will not hesitate to strip Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of their titles if the contents of the memoir as well as the documentary are disrespectful to the Monarchy.
