Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been a subject of discussion since the couple got together. They got married in 2018 and announced their exit from the British Royal Family in 2020. The couple shared their whole story in their Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, which was released in December 2022. Soon after the release of their docuseries, the Duke shared details about his relationship with his family members in his memoir, Spare. And considering the massive success of the Duke’s memoir, Netflix is reportedly planning to film a reality TV show with the Duke and the Duchess of Sussex.
Netflix Reportedly Wants Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Film a Reality Show
After stepping down from their royal duties in 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly signed a $100 million deal with Netflix. The deal includes the couple working on documentaries, feature films, scripted shows, and children’s programming with the streaming giant.
Their Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, was also a part of their deal. And now that the Duke’s memoir is receiving a great response, Netflix is reportedly planning a follow-up series for the Sussexes. According to a new report from The Sun, a Netflix consultant has revealed the book’s success has raised “their interest in a fly-on-the-wall style show.”
The source also revealed that Netflix feels they are in the “prime position” for their next project with the Duke and Duchess. “We know that the couple films material all the time, so there remains a treasure trove left, which could make for dynamite viewing,” the Sun’s source revealed.
The source also shared that the streaming giant wants the couple to “open up the doors of their Montecito home” for upcoming projects. While several interviews for Harry & Meghan seem to be filmed in a household environment, it is revealed that another $33.5m estate was used for the production.
Netflix is Disappointed With Prince Harry
The source also revealed that Netflix executives are not that annoyed by the “volume of revelations in Spare” as compared to their Netflix docuseries. But they are not happy with the way Prince Harry has been promoting his book, Spare.
The source shared, “Some in the marketing team at Netflix were disappointed that Meghan and Harry did not go out on a media tour for the show.” However, they are hoping to see the same enthusiasm for the promotion of their future projects together. Other than their Netflix docuseries, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also served as executive producers for Netflix’s Live to Lead, which was released on December 31, 2022.
Harry & Meghan is available to stream on Netflix.
