Meghan Markle and Prince Harry signed a deal with streaming giant Netflix in 2020 after they bowed out of doing any more official duties for the Royal family. The deal’s announcement, which arrived in September 2020, stated the royal couple will be taking part in making “documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming”.
Earlier this week on Sky News royal insider and author Robert Lacey revealed details about one of these documentaries.
He said there will “definitely be at least one documentary” that takes a closer look at the Sussex’s journey as royals and would feature more information about their lives than their upcoming interview with talkshow host Oprah Winfrey.
He went on: “I would go easy there on the idea of a tell-all interview with Oprah. I think they won’t be telling all to Oprah.
“They have signed a contract with Netflix, which is bigger than their friendship with Oprah Winfrey.”
Robert continued: “As I understand it, there will definitely be at least one documentary to come from Netflix in which they will talk about things like the wedding, what it meant to them and also why they moved on from this to what they want to do.
“Maybe they arranged the interview so they could say what they wanted to say before the palace did.”
Going on to speculate about why they were stripped of their official titles and duties, Robert added: “We had this date previous to today where the Queen was going to review what the position of the Sussexes would be.
“If you are looking at a half-hearted explanation of what has happened today, they jumped before they were pushed.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would certainly have a lot of material to discuss in a documentary about their lives.
It would include such events as their engagement, wedding, pregnancy and birth of Prince Archie as well as leaving Britain (“Megxit”).
When the Sussexes signed their deal with Netflix they said in a statement: “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.”

The couple went on to add that Netflix’s “unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action”.
At the moment their content is exclusively owned by the streaming service, which currently has more than 200 million monthly subscribers.
Yesterday’s announcement on Meghan and Harry’s titles and royal duties was confirmed by Buckingham Palace who issued a statement on the matter.
The statement read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have confirmed to Her Majesty The Queen that they will not be returning as working members of The Royal Family.”
The statement continued: “Following conversations with The Duke, The Queen has written confirming that in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.
“The honorary military appointments and Royal patronages held by The Duke and Duchess will therefore be returned to Her Majesty, before being redistributed among working members of The Royal Family.”
The Palace concluded: “While all are saddened by their decision, The Duke and Duchess remain much-loved members of the family.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s documentary does not currently have a release date.
