New Details About Meghan And Harry's Documentary Have Come To Light

Ever since Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, agreed to a multi-million deal with Netflix in 2020 — following the Sussexes' move to California — royal watchers have waited to see what the deal would produce. At the time, The New York Times revealed that the couple had founded a production company to deliver documentaries, feature films, scripted shows, and children's programming to the streaming service. Their first project, a docuseries titled "Heart of Invictus," documents the training of international service members "who have experienced life-changing injuries or illnesses" as they worked toward the 2022 Invictus Games (per Archewell). The event is a competition started by the Invictus Games Foundation

According to Variety, Prince Harry will appear in the show, as he's a dedicated patron of the foundation. The royal couple hired Oscar-winning director Orlando von Einsiedel and Oscar-winning producer Joanna Natasegara to helm the project. In addition to the docuseries, Page Six revealed that the royal couple has also been filming a separate docuseries about their life since moving to America. While no cameras followed them to the U.K. for the queen's Platinum Jubilee, reports indicate that cameras have documented the couple at their home in California, and during their 2021 trip to New York City. 

However, a new report suggests that Harry and Meghan only want award-winning talent working behind the scenes on their projects.

They've hired an acclaimed director for their new series

According to a new report by Page Six, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have hired Liz Garbus to direct the series documenting their life since moving to America. Garbus, who has been nominated for two Academy Awards and numerous Emmys (per IMDb), was spotted with the royal couple during their three-day trip to New York. Her appearance during their short journey, which took place in September 2021, prompted speculation about her involvement with the upcoming series. Known for producing and directing documentaries such as "What happened, Miss Simone?" and the HBO mini-series "I'll Be Gone in the Dark," Garbus has also directed scripted television, including an episode of "The Handmaid's Tale" (per IMDb). 

Details about the Sussexes' docuseries have been scarce, including what it will be titled and when it will air. According to Page Six, Netflix hopes the series will release in conjunction with Harry's upcoming memoir, which is expected to publish in late 2022 from Penguin Random House. While an animated series created by Meghan titled "Pearl" was dropped by Netflix in May (per Deadline), it's doubtful the streaming service will do the same with a reality show focused on the headline-making royals. Only time will tell what secrets the couple will reveal when the series finally hits the streamer.
