Prince Harry and Meghan Markle share their story – this time in a Netflix series.

Directed by Liz Garbus, the upcoming six-episode show will highlight the couple’s romance – from the early days to their split from the royal family, which made headlines around the world.

It promises plenty of content for fans of the Sussexes, as the first trailer featured a barrage of candid black-and-white photos.

A second trailer, confirming an initial release date for December 8, also promises plenty of jabs at the royal family – with Harry describing the “pain and suffering” of women marrying into the “institution.”

Commentators then describe a “war on Meghan” – and Harry discusses a “dirty game” of “planting” and “leaking” stories to the press.

Also hot on the show’s heels is his bombastic memoir Spare, due out on January 10, 2023, which will reveal even more about his life as Prince of the United Kingdom.

But after all that has been said, is Harry still a prince today? And is he still in line for the throne?

Here’s everything you need to know.

Is Harry still a prince?

Yes, Harry is still “Prince Harry”.

He was the second son of today’s King Charles III. and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, born a prince.

However, when he stepped down as a working member of the royal family in early 2020, it was agreed that Harry would no longer use the “His Royal Highness” style before his titles.

He is still the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel.

Queen Elizabeth II gave him the Sussex Dukedom after his marriage to Meghan in May 2018.

Meghan is still known as the Duchess of Sussex, Countess of Dumbarton and Baroness Kilkeel.

Although technically a princess of the United Kingdom by marriage, she is not titled as a princess.

Is Prince Harry in line to the throne?

Yes, Prince Harry is still in the line of succession to the British throne.

He is currently fifth in line – behind brother Prince William and his children with Catherine, Princess of Wales: Prince George (second), Princess Charlotte (third) and Prince Louis (fourth).

Harry was sixth in line when Prince Louis was born in April 2018, but became fifth after the Queen’s death in September 2022. When he was born in September 1984, he was third in line.

Behind him is his son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor in sixth and daughter Lilibet Diana in seventh.

Over time, it’s likely that Harry and his children will leave the line of succession – if the Prince and Princess of Wales have more children or future grandchildren.

The king’s brother, Prince Andrew, is currently eighth in line to the throne, with his daughter Princess Beatrice and daughter Sienna in ninth and tenth place.

After her comes Andrew’s second daughter Princess Eugenie at number 11, son August at number 12 – all ahead of the King’s youngest brother Prince Edward at number 13, his son James, Viscount Severn at number 14 and daughter Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor 15th place

Anne, The Princess Royal is 16th in line to the throne, followed by her children and grandchildren.
