Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wont be getting an Emmy – and are set to lose millions.

Their six-part Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan, failed to earn them an Emmy Award nomination in the Documentary or Nonfiction Series category.

The controversial docuseries saw the couple make a series of allegations against senior members of the Royal Family, including Prince William and King Charles along with first-hand accounts from the pair’s close friends and family as they detailed some of their darkest times over the recent years.

The series smashed Netflix viewership records, hitting a whopping 4.5m viewers during its first week.

Prior to the series’ debut, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a £40million multi-year deal with the streaming service

And it was expected that the couple would rake up to “anything between £250m ($318m) and £300m ($381m) in a future “exclusive deal” if they went on to secure an Emmy Award win.

Entertainment Editor at MarkMeets, Mark Boardman, exclusively told Daily Express US in June just how the Sussexes could land the lucrative amount but, according to him, there was one big catch.

The showbiz writer, who previously tipped that the couple would initially be nominated for an Emmy, said: “I have never been to the Emmys but how it works is the panel will be extremely familiar with every possible nominee.

“There is no smoke without fire and to me, I feel there is a good chance that there’s a win and a definite chance they will be nominated because it will give the Emmy Awards a lot of press attention on that,” he claimed.

He continued: “There is definitely every chance there is a win for Harry, Meghan, and Netflix and I am 100 percent confident it will get nominated.

“I have looked at all of the possible categories and it is the most high-profile documentary series within that category.”

Mark emphasized that if Harry and Meghan did go on to win an Emmy, they could bag an eye-watering sum which could rack up hundreds of millions of dollars for the couple through another exclusive deal with Netflix.

However, the couple would have to start creating “real-life documentaries meeting people” to “give Netflix a year’s worth of content”.

The showbiz and entertainment expert believed that these types of documentaries would make the pair too valuable for Netflix to drop anytime soon.

It comes after the pair announced they had terminated their exclusive podcast deal with Spotify, which was worth $20 million.

The Wall Street Journal reported the news that Spotify would not be renewing Meghan’s interview series called, Archetypes, which aired its first season from August to November 2022.

The couple’s team at Archewell Audio confirmed in a joint statement with Spotify that the partnership had come to an end.

“Spotify and Archewell Audio have mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series we made together,” the statement read.

Harry & Meghan is available to stream on Netflix.
