Prior to the documentary's release, two-time Academy Award-nominated and Emmy award-winning director, Liz Garbus said: 

"It has been a privilege to be able to work with Harry and Meghan, who bravely allowed themselves to be vulnerable by sharing their personal stories and archive. I hope that when Netflix viewers press play, whatever preconceptions people have, they will be open to the discovery of what we've shared in this documentary series. It's an incredible love story set against the context of huge stakes and their journey is a historical event that will be examined for a long time to come."
