We were excited when we learned that the most famous couple of the Royal Family were filming an “at home with the Sussexes docuseries”. We have had plenty of shows about the Royal Family, even movies on them, but did they ever actually invite cameras into their homes? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are probably the first to do that. But well the couple has done a lot of things differently since they tied the knot together. But now we hear Richard Eden has reasons to believe that their kids may appear on the show as well. The family together going about their daily lives – who wouldn’t want to watch that?
A documentary needs “drama” and “tension” to avoid being boring
Palace Confidential’s Richard Eden thinks Netflix would want a “bang” for the $100 million dollars deal with Megan and Harry.
“For any good fly-on-the-wall documentary, you need some tension, you need drama, otherwise, it’s just boring, isn’t it? “So, I’m sure Netflix, if they’re paying that money, would expect to see the children as well,” he emphasized.
They are shooting the documentary as part of that deal, which is all the more reason that the streamer would want the kids, Archie and Lilibet as well. The couple has kept their family life very personal. Although Archie had a brief appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show, that too was in the background. But a documentary with just two of them is just a recipe for a boring TV show. He’s pretty sure that the streamer wouldn’t like the couple discussing climate change in their kitchen throughout the runtime.
Meghan and Harry had planned to produce shows for the streamer
After they denounced their royal title the couple had entered a $100 million contract in 2020 to commission shows for the platform much like the Obamas. However, Netflix canceled Meghan’s Pearl about a teenage girl inspired by her life. But they plan to launch Harry’s memoir with the release of the documentary. So are you going to tune in?
