In another scene, the Queen can be seen telling off Harry and William for “fuelling uncertainty” while Meghan tells her husband “they need to hear the truth”.

Many royal fans were quick to comment on the new trailer on YouTube, with one saying: “Oh I was sooo hoping this would be a hilarious parody”

Another added: “Can’t wait to NOT watch this.”

Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace will air on Lifetime on September 6 in the US, but no date has been announced for the UK yet.
