The Truth About Meghan And Harry's Deal With Netflix

What's a royal to do when they no longer want to deal with the pressures of being a senior royal? If you're Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, you officially step back from the royal family and carve your own destiny.

The weeks following the announcement that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are stepping away from the royal family and splitting their time between the U.K. and North America have been filled with a lot of confusion. What are Markle and Prince Harry going to do now? How are they going to achieve their goals of being financially independent?

Markle has already inked a deal with Disney, but another thing that she and her husband might choose to do is make a deal with Netflix.

Netflix has expressed an interest in working with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

While there's nothing official to report yet, we do know that Netflix is definitely interested in working with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. According to Page Six, Netflix boss Ted Sarandos is open to the idea of working with the couple, saying, "Who wouldn't be interested? Yes, sure."

It's not a lot to go on, but the deal could be lucrative for both the couple and Netflix. The real question is how they would work with Netflix. Could Markle return to acting? According to the Daily Mail, Markle still has a team of agents and publicists and is reportedly exploring a return to show business. Or perhaps Markle and Prince Harry will land a production deal like the Obamas.

Prince Harry already has a deal with Apple TV+

If Meghan Markle and Prince Harry do strike a deal with Netflix it may have to be put on the back burner as the couple reportedly have other projects in the works. In addition to Markle's Disney deal, Prince Harry has a deal with Apple TV+. The partnership was in the works last April, well before the decision was made for Prince Harry and Markle to break away from the royal family.

According to CNBC, Prince Harry will be a co-creator and executive producer, along with Oprah Winfrey, on a series of mental health-focused documentaries slated to premiere this year.
