Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sign huge production deal with Netflix

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sign huge production deal with Netflix”

Their fee has not been made public, but similar multi-year deals are worth many millions of dollars.

Britain's Prince Harry and his U.S. wife Meghan Markle have signed a multi-year contract with Netflix to produce documentaries, feature films television shows and children's series. And now we can start wondering if they'll end up guest-starring as themselves on The Crown (probably not).

Six months after stepping back from their roles as senior royals within the British royal family, the couple have announced a partnership with the streaming platform through which they will produce films and series, ranging from children's shows to scripted content, for an undisclosed fee.

The prince worked closely with the filmmakers of the documentary Rising Phoenix, in which he also appears. "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". "As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us".

While this will no doubt garner plenty of scorn from those who have taken to lashing-out against the couple, this is good news for the pair overall.

What could've been. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry nearly gave Archie a different name.

Harry (left) and Meghan (right) have reportedly signed a lucrative deal with Netflix, just days after reports of them pitching ideas to major Hollywood executives.

Harry and Meghan stepped away from their royal duties earlier this year and moved to the US, seeking to build independent incomes and escape what had been harsh scrutiny in the United Kingdom since their 2018 marriage.

Barack and Michelle Obama signed their Netflix deal in 2018 and acquired Sundance hit American Factory which won the Oscar for best documentary and also produced Becoming, a documentary that followed Michelle Obama during her book tour.

"We're incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere", he said.
