Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to work on a documentary series with renowned director Liz Garbus.
According to previous reports, their project would be an “at-home” type show that would be released as part of the couple’s Netflix deal.
According to royal reporter Richard Eden, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are already withdrawing from the show as a defensive measure.
Eden wrote in Palace Confidential that viewers would see a Netflix film about them that “they are anxious to distance themselves from,” and it’s easy to see why: it would be embarrassing for the British royal family.
It is widely assumed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s documentary series will be filled with negative content. The royal writer and expert believe the couple would all blame it on the director.
“They want to be able to claim, ‘That’s simply the director’s vision, nothing to do with us.’ It’s really concerning.”
In an interview with Variety, Meghan Markle stated that she could trust the filmmaker with their narrative:
“even if it means it may not be delivered the way we would have told it.”
She said they didn’t do it because they were “trusting our story to someone else, which means it would go through their lens.”
According to the royal expert, the revelation of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle making excuses and avoiding criticism comes after they were accused of “quite nasty” initiatives.
According to one royal observer, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix program is a “vanity project.”
According to sources, their docuseries will still be released this year despite Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
Royal commentator Nile Gardiner, on the other hand, stated that the timing of the release made it particularly repulsive.
He went so far as to accuse the former “Suits” star of being obsessed with “advancing her own image and position.”
“The Netflix documentary is a vanity effort, and Megan is obviously playing off her royal title and connections here.”
Meghan was advised not to do so and to appreciate what the monarchy is and what it stands for.
“She should not use this opportunity to start her own lofty dreams. So, what is occurring is very, very disgusting.”
