Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may be heading to Netflix anytime soon. The streaming platform’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, revealed during the Press Association in Los Angeles over the weekend that he was interested in doing a project with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following their royal family exit.
“Who wouldn’t be interested? Yes, sure,” Sarandos said when asked about possibly collaborating with Markle and Harry in the future.
Prior to this, Harry jokingly cornered director and actor Jon Favreau at “The Lion King” premiere in London. “If anyone needs any extra voiceover work…,” he was heard saying on camera. Meghan then chimed in, “That’s really why we’re here–it’s the pitch!”
This arrives after Harry hinted that he was actually reluctant to drop his title and still wanted to continue serving the Queen. “Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard, or perhaps read, over the past few weeks,” he began saying at the Sentebale charity in London on Sunday, January 19.
“So, I want you to hear the truth from me — as much as I can share, not as a prince or a duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the past 35 years, but now with a clearer perspective,” he added in his speech.
Harry went on suggesting that he and Meghan didn’t actually intend to step away from royal life together, but just wanted to cut out the public funding part. “Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn’t possible,” he explained.
Queen Elizabeth II announced that Harry and Meghan will quit using their “royal highness” titles, and be known as Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, as part of the official agreement that will take effect in the “spring of 2020.”
Harry and Meghan, who share son Archie together, made headlines after announcing on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 their intention to “step back” as senior royals, while fully intending to “become financially independent” after streamlining their role within the institution. They went on to launch their new sussexroyal.com website, outlining their plans for the future, which include splitting their time between the U.K. and North America.
