The hidden details in Harry and Meghan's bombshell Netflix trailer

After its first trailer released on December 1, people haven't been able to stop talking about Netflix's new docu-series on Harry and Meghan. Two years in the making, the series will see the couple explain why they left their royal duties and include new interviews with family, friends, historians, and journalists.

A minute-long teaser trailer featured never-before-seen photos of the couple and several shots of an emotional-looking Meghan appearing to wipe tears from her eyes. In powerful moments, Harry says: "No-one sees what is happening behind closed doors" whilst Meghan adds: "When the stakes are this high, doesn't it make more sense to hear our story from us?"

Here are some of the things The Mirror has picked out that you may have missed on first viewing. For more showbiz and television stories get our newsletter here.

Harry and Meghan's private wedding celebration

One of the first notable moments of the trailer is an unseen photo of Harry and Meghan's private wedding celebration, which took place after a televised religious ceremony in May 2018. In the photo, the newlyweds can be seen on the dance floor, holding hands as they enjoy the festivities. The newlyweds are surrounded by guests, who are holding drinks as they dance. There are also huge floral displays and what appear to be fairy lights in the background. The large bi-folding doors are wide open, which insinuates that the party carried on into the grounds of Frogmore House.

Mike and Zara Tindall

In the same photo, I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here star Mike Tindall can be seen partying alongside wife Zara.

Harry and Meghan's first holiday

The new docu-series will chart the early days of Harry and Meghan's relationship and in one of the photos from the trailer, the couple can be seen on what appears to be their first holiday. In 2016, Harry and Meghan travelled to Botswana mere months after going on their first romantic date in London. Using the trip as a chance to get to know one another, the couple spent five nights away from their luxury log cabins in the wilderness to camp "alone". The pair are said to have bonded over their love of nature during the trip, and would return a year later after getting engaged to work with elephant conservation groups.

Harry plays guitar

There is a snap of Harry playing a guitar whilst Meghan holds his hand. This could come as a surprise to viewers as the royal once refused to sing on a record with Jon Bon Jovi, saying he would rather leave it up to the professionals.

Harry and Meghan's home

Several of the black and white photos in the trailer appear to show Harry and Meghan relaxing at home. In one photo they share a kiss in a kitchen, with Meghan sitting on the worktop and Harry leaning in to the embrace. Meanwhile, another frame shows Meghan appearing emotional with her head in her hand as she clutches her mobile phone. The photo appears to have been taken in one of their homes. Draped over the chair is a £1,260 Hermes throw blanket. The same style of blanket was featured in the video Meghan released for her 40th birthday in August 2021, which was filmed at her and Harry's Montecito home.

William, Kate and Camilla are the only royals to appear

As mentioned, one of the more powerful moments of the trailer is when Harry says: "No-one sees what's happening behind closed door" whilst a photo a distressed Meghan is shown. Following this, the one and only photo of other royals is shown - and it specifically features Meghan, Prince William and Kate - while Queen Consort Camilla is also visible. The photo was taken at the 2019 Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey when Meghan was pregnant with Archie - just a year before they stepped down as senior working royals.

A box featuring the Queen's name

One of the final shots in the trailer sees Harry and Meghan walking towards a set of doors, where a waiting car can be seen outside. If you look closely, you can see what appears to be a box in the right hand bottom corner that bears the words: "Her Majesty".
