Speaking from her Montecito mansion with The Cut, the Duchess of Sussex hinted that her five-year romance with Prince Harry is one of the “pieces of her life” she hasn’t been able to share with the public yet.
“The couple immediately busted the rumors of a reality show, both in statements to publications and in conversation with me,” journalist Allison P. Davis notes in the article.
“But, Meghan explains, there’s a difference between a historical documentary and a reality documentary.”
The Duchess continued: ‘The part of my life that I have not been able to share, that people have not been able to see, is our love story.
She added: “I hope that’s the feeling people feel when they see some of the content or the projects we’re working on.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been filming the Netflix documentary for more than a year after signing a much-reported $100 million deal in 2021.
They have been spotted with a film crew at a number of gigs, including the Invictus Games earlier this year. The filming would have taken place for their confirmed docu-series Heart of Invictus.

Multiple sources told Page six that the streaming platform hopes to release the Sussex documentary around the same time as The Crown’s new series, due out in November.
The major streaming service doesn’t want to be “scooped up” by the Duke’s memoirs, despite claims the Sussexes want the documentary to air next year, sources said.
Harry’s book will be out sometime this fall, and Netflix will be happy to capitalize on the massive buzz the all-encompassing volume is likely to generate.
‘[Netflix executives] knew the book was coming out, so they wanted the series this year,” a source told Page Six. “They don’t want to wait any longer.”
However, the royal couple reportedly want the series to hit the small screen next year, according to Page Six.
DailyMail.com reached out to Netflix for comment when the reports first emerged.

Meghan Markle previously had an animated series, Pearl, in the works with Netflix, but it was scrapped in May as part of a wave of budget cuts prompted by the streaming juggernaut’s decline in subscriber numbers.
In the series, with David Furnish, Sir Elton John’s husband as executive producer, a young girl inspired by Meghan – whose name means ‘pearl’ in Welsh – is said to endure various social injustices, while doing the work of feminist icons.
A now-deleted quote from Meghan about the series read: “Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges.
“I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions, along with Netflix’s powerhouse platform and these incredible producers, will bring you this new animated series that celebrates extraordinary women throughout history.”
Director Liz Garbus was involved in the project and is now attached to the Netflix documentary.
It comes a week after Meghan Markle released the first episode of her Spotify podcast Archetypes.
