Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been warned about their Netflix deal, especially about doing documentaries by royal author Robert Lacey.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped back from their royal duties earlier this year. They also announced that they wanted to work and be financially independent. The two have just signed a deal with Netflix, and a royal author issued them a stern warning.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry warned about Netflix deal
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were done working as full-time royals. They flew to the United States after carrying out their final engagement in March.
Robert Lacey, who wrote Battle of Brothers, issued a warning to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, reminding them to be careful about their deal with Netflix. The royal biographer believed that doing it wrong might end their royal status.
“The one question mark over the Sussexes’ deal with Netflix is whether it does contain, as it has been reported, plans for some sort of tell-all documentary,” Lacey told Express.
He noted that Prince Harry and Markle denied doing a reality show. However, the royal couple didn’t address the speculations that they were doing a documentary.
Earlier, there were rumors that they documented their royal exit. The members of the British royal family are very private, and if the Sussexes break the taboos, it might cost them their royal titles.
“And if they did do a documentary about how they left the Royal Family and why and how they are getting on away from the Royal Family, that could be the actual end, that could finalise the rift,” he added.
“That would finally break the taboos, it could be impossible for them to come back.”
The Sussexes allegedly recorded departure
Daily Mail royal correspondents Rebecca English and Paul Revoir published a report about Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle have sensational home footage. They allegedly recorded their departure from the royal family.
They reportedly told Netflix about it during the negotiations and before they signed the deal. There were also allegations that the royal couple wanted to make their own “worthy” documentaries with a huge price-tag from the streaming giant.
The video was expected to be explosive. The rumors also alleged that the footage included Archie’s introduction to the family. The said footage would provide a unique insight into the couple’s lives when they were still in the palace.
The Sussexes denied doing a reality show after The Sun reported that they were making one. Royal expert Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, commented on the report about the couple doing a reality show and said they would be “hypocrite” if they do it.
“We were told they had gone to California for greater privacy so it all appears rather hypocritical,” Seward said.
“It is extraordinary. This is exactly what they said they wouldn’t do.”
