Prince Harry was spotted at the Stockyards Championship Rodeo event on March 5 dressed in a casual outfit and a cowboy hat. The Duke of Sussex spoke with local at the Cowtown Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas, where the event was held. The Daily Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden has since claimed the appearance could be part of a Netflix special.
Speaking to Palace Confidential on Mailplus, Mr Eden said: “I smell a rat.
“It must be for some TV show for Netflix something like, ‘Harry meets America’ or something cringe-making.”
It comes five months after Harry and wife, Meghan Markle also sparked claims they were “filming for Netflix” while visiting New York.
The Duke was caught with a microphone cable “hanging out of his slacks”.
Prince Harry’s surprise appearance at a Texas rodeo last weekend has sparked Netflix rumours
Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior royals in March 2020
Royal expert Russell Myers told Pod Save the Queen: “I like the fact that Harry was caught with this microphone cable hanging out of his slacks, and many wondering about Meghan’s choice of outfits in the barmy New York end-of-the-summer, autumn weather.
“We don’t know for certain, but one can assume they are filming some sort of series for their Netflix deal and that’s the reason for the recording.”
Host Ann Gripper added: “Are you saying they were dressed quite warmly for end of summer in New York? They’re from California though!
“I would imagine that there’s a difference in temperature.
“I thought some of the outfits were really interesting ‒ they definitely made a statement that ‘we’re here and we mean business.'”
Harry and Meghan signed a deal make documentaries, children’s programmes, scripted shows and feature films in 2021.
Since then, the royals have not appeared on anything the streaming giant has.
It comes as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex received a top accolade at the NAACP Image Awards for heeding the call to social justice and joining the struggle for equity around the world.
Harry and Meghan were named as recipients of the President’s Award, which recognises special achievement and distinguished public service.
The couple, who stepped down as senior working royals in 2020, said in a joint statement it was a “true honour” and are expected to give a live acceptance speech in the early hours of Sunday, UK time, during the virtual awards ceremony.
Past recipients of the gong include Muhammad Ali, Jesse Jackson, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, LeBron James, Rihanna, Jay-Z and Lauryn Hill.
