Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan
What are you planning for your Netflix documentary?
Will it be the new Harry and Megan Kardashian? Or is your Netflix documentary about your humanitarian projects? This is known so far…
The Netflix documentary series on Prince Harry (38) and Duchess Meghan (41) continues to make headlines. The latest rumor about the project, which has not been officially confirmed: it seems that it will come for a long time. According to the reports of the American industry portal “Deadline”, the streaming service allegedly decided not to publish the documentary format in December 2022, but only in 2023. The reason for this is the current criticism of the fifth season of the series “The Crown” on Netflix.
The fantasy television show “The Crown” traces the life of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022). New episodes are scheduled to appear on November 9th. The royal family seems to fear the reputation of King Charles III. (73) She was damaged by the movie “The Crown” because many people do not distinguish between the series and reality.
Season 5 of The Crown is causing so much excitement in advance that it looks like Harry and Meghan’s project may be affected as well. “Officials at Netflix are concerned and have decided to postpone the documentary,” a source told American Industry magazine. They may think that showing the new Sussex family documentary after ‘The Crown’ is an exaggeration.
Changes in the documentary after the death of the Queen?
After the Queen’s death, according to “Deadline”, the couple can now reconsider and possibly change the content due to the alleged delay of the documentary. Because there is speculation about that too. This is known so far from Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s documentary:
The documentary series is said to be produced by Netflix and Harry and Meghan by Archewell Productions. Neither the title nor the broadcast date is officially known. According to reports, Netflix has already planned to bring the documentary to the new season of “The Crown” in time.
The scenes for the documentary are said to have been created at Harry and Meghan’s property in Montecito, California. The couple, who has two children Archie (3) and Lilipt (1), moved there in 2020. Initially, there were rumors that royal family dropouts were planning a Kardashian-style reality show. Since then this has been rejected several times. And there probably wouldn’t be a pure home story either.
The Sussexes may want to share their point of view in the documentary. Other insiders rule out that there will be major changes after the Queen’s death, as media reports have speculated. According to “The Telegraph”, the changes are normal adjustments, as usual in television projects. But this report also states that the “timing” of the documentary is not ideal given the Queen’s death.
Little is known so far
Harry and Meghan themselves, as well as Netflix, have so far kept their eyes off the documentary. In an interview with The Cut, Meghan gave an insight into the format. The Duchess of Sussex said: “The part of my life that I couldn’t share that people can’t see is our love story.” She added that it was “really cool” to be able to tell your story after the media had previously taken over.
According to the Telegraph, an insider said Harry and Meghan wanted to take the opportunity to show “where they come from, what they’ve been through and where they stand.” “I think it will tell a lot about the choices they have to make and how they ended up here,” the source added.
Big deal with Netflix
In addition to a deal with Spotify, the Sussexes struck a deal with Netflix in September 2020. The couple, who stepped down as senior royals in early 2020, said they will produce documentaries, documentaries, feature films, script shows and children’s programming. The Streamer is said to have canceled Archewell Productions’ “Pearl” animated series. A documentary on “Invictus Games,” an international sports competition for veterans that Harry helped create, is said to be in the works.
