Harry and Meghan facing Netflix pressure to release show before memoir ‘They want payback’


PRINCE HARRY and Meghan Markle are being pressured to release more content for Netflix ahead of the Duke’s upcoming memoir, a royal expert has claimed.

The Daily Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden added: “Netflix were very keen for the series to be broadcast this year to tie in with Harry’s memoirs.

“Harry and Meghan are pushing back, they want it for next year.”

Royal author Victoria Murphy noted: “That’s quite interesting in itself.

“You have two commercial deals; one with a publisher and one with a production company.

“Presumably there would be a level of competition there about stories and content.”

Mr Arbiter added: “Netflix has paid out, they want payback now.”

He went on to brand the docuseries “desperate”.

He said: “This smacks of desperation because Netflix is haemorrhaging money, it’s cut productions, it’s got The Crown coming out in November which is a very costly production.

“Harry’s got his memoir coming out either before or just after and Netflix want to show this docuseries to coincide with it all.

“I think it smacks of desperation.

“It’s a bit rich, two people who left the UK, walked out of the Royal Family, because they wanted privacy.

“They’ve done nothing else but put themselves up front and a week doesn’t go by when there isn’t some sort of statement coming out of their PR people.”

“There are alarm bells but they’re not ringing as hard as the the Oprah interview.”

Mr Eden noted: “What we’re thinking now is will they be bringing Netflix with them for the Jubilee celebrations.”
