Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new Netflix deal may finally give the Duchess of Sussex her ultimate dream – an Oscar.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will produce “inspirational” content as part of their multimillion-dollar contract with Netflix. From here, she may finally get the Academy Award she has been dreaming of since she was a child.
Meghan’s life-long dream
Meghan’s alleged long-time friend told Daily Mail an Oscar is what the Duchess of Sussex “has ever wanted.”
“She used to practice her acceptance speech in the mirror with a hairbrush when she was a kid of seven,” the pal said. “She would also practice her signature in preparation for all the autographs she would give.”
The former actress’s absolute dream is to get the prestigious EGOT, which stands for an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award.
“Her acceptance speech has been ready for 30 years,” the source continued. “Perhaps now she will get to use it.”
Part of Prince Harry and Meghan’s Netflix deal is a yearly retainer worth £2 to £4 million and “fees for films.” However, they are not allowed to use their royal titles on production credits.
They will not be “rent-a-royals” and will vet any Netflix publicity. A company vice-president is also assigned to run their pro.

According to a source they will be joining discussions and making speeches on “racial justice, gender equity, mental health, the environment” – and won’t be talking about the Royal Family.” #meghanmarkle #meghanmarklenews #meghanandharry
Prince Harry, Meghan’s future projects
Prince Harry and Meghan may create different ranges of documentaries about the causes they support, Mirror Online reported.
“The focus will be on creating a wide range of programs about stories and issues that resonate with them personally,” their spokeswoman said. “[It includes] highlighting issues that their non-profit (company) Archewell is focused on.”
“Enabling a more compassionate and equitable world isn’t just something they do through their non-profit,” she continued. “It’s a belief they hold and model themselves which will carry through in this venture.”
The Sussexes’ production company will be called MWX Trading, following their Mountbatten-Windsor surname. Although it has yet to be officially announced, it is now developing documentaries about nature and animated series about inspirational women.
Indeed, they will not use their royal titles for any production credits as they may be accused of cashing in on their royal status. The pair have promised they would never do this.
The Hollywood team of Meghan Markle is composed of agent Nick Collins, lawyer Rick Genow and business manager Andrew Meyer. They, reportedly, negotiated the megadeal with Netflix after quietly trying to deal with Disney, Apple, and HBO.
