Prince Harry and Meghan could ‘fade into obscurity’ if Netflix projects fail to impress


PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle will always attract “some curiosity”, although that attention could focus on their “failure” if their upcoming projects fail to be successful.

“There’ll always be a little bit of interest in them, I mean even if that happens there will be some curiosity in the years to come along the lines of those articles you see ‘whatever happened to…’

“I think people will always look out for what they’re doing in life, in fact, if they fail in some people’s estimations, it will be that case that people are interested in them because of that failure.

“The story will become that of a fallen prince and his Hollywood wife and how things ‘went wrong’ for them.

“I don’t think that’s what they want obviously.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced in January 2020 that they would be stepping down from the Royal Family.

As part of their Megxit deal, the couple lost their royal patronages, military titles, security and had to secure their financial independence from the Sovereign Grant.

Shortly after completing their final royal engagements in March of last year, they relocated to the Montecito area of California, where they have settled with their two young children.

During their tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry said they had signed deals with Netflix and Spotify as a financial means to provide for their family, after being “cut off” from the Royal Family.

The deals are estimated to be worth over £100million and will see the couple produce a range of “informative” and “uplifting” content for the streaming networks.

With Spotify, the couple are yet to produce a podcast series and have only released one ‘Holiday Special’ episode which was made available last Christmas.

In recent months, they have announced their first two projects with Netflix, which are due to be aired in 2022.

Prince Harry is producing and starring in the docu-series Heart of Invictus, which will follow the organisers and competitors of the 2022 Invictus Games. After a two-year delay, the Games are due to take place in the Netherlands next year.

The series will follow a 12-year-old girl on a number of “heroic adventures” as she interacts with influential women throughout history.

As well as their Netflix and Spotify deals, the couple have also established their own non-profit foundation, Archewell. Over the last year, they have dedicated their humanitarian work to focus on core issues such as mental health, gender equality, and climate change.

Through their work with Archewell, the couple visited New York in September, to spend three days meeting with high-ranking officials and organisations.

Engagements included a photocall with the Mayor of New York, a roundtable discussion with the World Health Organisation, a visit to the United Nations, and an appearance at the Global Citizen Live concert.

The couple recently graced the front cover of Time magazine, after being named as two of the most influential figures in the world in the Time100 list.
