In Netflix’s newest docuseries Harry & Meghan, followers of the couple have been getting updates on their life that they never knew. From how to the two originally met to details of how they found out their relationship would be shared to the public.

The second part of the docuseries released December 15th. Fans are now finding out about relationships the couple has. One new piece of information is that Tyler Perry is the godfather to their daughter, Lilibet.

The filmmaker revealed his newest title in the final episode. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle asked him to accept the role in 2021. Perry says the two “were pretty serious on the phone.” “I go, ‘Okay, what’s going on?’ They said, ‘Well, we’d like for you to be Lili’s godfather.’ I go, ‘Whoa,’ ” Perry recalled. “I had to take a minute to take that in.”

Earlier in the episode, Perry shared how him and Markle became acquainted. He sent Meghan a letter before her wedding saying he was praying for her. The letter referenced the “hurtful” controversy surrounding her and her strained relationship with her dad, Thomas Markle.

Tyler Perry famously let the couple stay in his $18 million LA estate after they first moved to the US in 2020. Meghan Markle originally told him they’d only stay for one week. “He’s like ‘You’re not going to stay for a week,” she recalled. “You’re going to stay for as long as as you need, and I’m going to get you there safely, and I’m going to keep you there safely until you have somewhere to go’.”

“It was bliss, because no one knew we were there,” the prince noted.

All episodes of Harry & Meghan are now streaming on Netflix.
