Meghan and Harry announced their second project at Netflix as part of what was rumoured to be an £150 million pound deal with their company, Archewell Productions. “Pearl,” created by the Duchess of Sussex, is described as an animated “family series that centers on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl, who is inspired by a variety of influential women from history.” The Duchess will be alongside David Furnish, a Canadian filmmaker that produced Rocketman and Gnomeo & Juliet. 

Royal reporter for NBC News, Neil Sean spoke about the deals in his latest Youtube video. 

He said: “Now Harry and Meghan’s programming for Netflix and indeed Spotify, wants to really embrace more empathy, more wokeness if you like.”

“But in this fast-moving world, and particuarly in the world of TV, Harry and Meghan have been told to basically re-think their strategy as to what the public would want to watch.”

He added: “Now if you’re making something that is basically very woke and single-minded, that’s all very well, but it is only a minority audience.”

“Streaming giants like Netflix and Spotify, want big returning audiences so they can charge more subscriptions and hopefully gain more viewers. Will Harry and Meghan take notice?” 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first show for Netflix was announced in April, and is a series about the Invictus Games.

The couple also signed a deal with streaming service Spotify, which was for a reported £18 million and has so far been one thirty-three minute podcast featuring guests including James Corden, Sir Elton John, Tyler Perry and Naomi Osaka.

Prince Harry has also announced the release of an “intimate memoir,” that is set to be published in late 2022.

The press release claimed that Prince Harry was, “writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story—the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned—I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”

Royals are reportedly fearful and ‘concerned’ about what the Duke will uncover in his £20 million pound deal. 

The proceeds from the book sales are reportedly being donated to charity.
