Netflix has been working with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on new content.
There have, however, been a few hiccups along the way. One of these is their docuseries, which was supposed to be postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Rumor has it that the program, which currently has no release date, may be canceled.
On the other hand, other royal insiders believe that Netflix will air the show at some point, with one claiming that the streaming giant would be humiliated if nothing came of their relationship with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The New York Times first reported in September 2020 that they had taken a significant step with Netflix and secured a multi-year contract to create original programming. This includes movies, documentaries, series, and children’s television shows.
In a statement, they stated:
“Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple has allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience and the need for connection.”
“Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.”
Kinsey Schofield, a royal expert who spoke to Express, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s untitled docuseries will continue to air on Netflix because the corporation has already invested too much to abandon this project.
“The streaming giant would be humiliated if nothing came to fruition with their partnership. The Sussexes earned a ludicrous amount of money for their relationship with Netflix and the hype around their content has been nonstop.”
Earlier this week, the Sussexes would tone down their remarks about now-King Charles III.
According to Neil Sean, a royal expert, the streaming behemoth made the decision to delay the release, not Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
He told Fox News that the reason for the delay was a lack of materials to work with.
As previously reported, the couple were not allowed to use footage from Queen Elizabeth II’s royal burial or some of the behind-the-scenes action from the former monarch’s Platinum Jubilee in June.
Indeed, Netflix is curious about what the couple plans to do with the film if it is not included in the docuseries.
According to Page Six, the series’ publication will be delayed until next year, similar to Prince Harry’s eagerly anticipated biography.
