Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix show may appear as planned after all

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex just can’t stay out of the spotlight. Since their bombshell interview with Oprah in October 2021, the pair have kept finding new ways to share their story and get people talking. Most recently, Markle debuted her first podcast series, titled Archetypes, in August 2022. The first episode shot to No. 1 with guest Serena Williams and ratings have remained strong ever since. The show took a brief hiatus during the official period of mourning for Queen Elizabeth II, per Hello!, but returned on Oct. 11 with a candid conversation about how Prince Harry stepped in to help her through her rock bottom.

For Harry’s part, his controversial memoir was due to hit bookstores this year, but Queen Elizabeth’s death has also impacted its publication. As The Telegraph reported in September 2022, the monarch’s death has reportedly pushed back its release to 2023 as the prince is trying to edit a range of content related to his grandmother, according to Page Six. “Harry will want to remove certain passages concerning Queen Elizabeth out of respect for her,” a source told the outlet. This, in turn, has sparked speculation as to whether Harry will reconsider everything he wrote about his father and stepmother. The Queen’s death has also raised questions about how Harry and Meghan intend to handle their upcoming Netflix docuseries, which will reportedly be another panacea, including juicy details about the royal family. Now we have new insights into the future of the show.

Everything we know about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix show

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle kicked off a multi-year, multi-million dollar Netflix deal back in April 2021 when their production company Archewell Productions dead-sold the Invictus games docu-series Heart of Invictus to the streaming giant. Jump to May 2022 and the pair were reportedly working on their second project, a much more personal series centered on her.

According to Page Six, the couple allowed cameras into their home for a reality-style show, which the outlet learned would be a “Home with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex”-style series. As an insider told The Telegraph, “It will explain a lot about the choices they had to make and how they ended up here.”

However, in September 2022, Page Six learned that the Queen’s death had pushed the show’s release back to 2023 from December 2022, as the couple requested new edits. According to an insider, Harry and Meghan decided to tone down passages about Charles, Camilla, William and Kate. Additionally, another source told Page Six that there was also “a lot going on in the show [that] contradicted what Harry wrote, so that was an issue. “There was even talk of Netflix possibly pulling the plug on this thing altogether?” mused an insider. However, according to another source telling Page Six, it was all hearsay that the documentary series will air as planned this December, despite rumours.
