Meghan and Harry shocked the whole world when they got into a deal with Netflix. The promise from the royal couple in exchange for 100 million from the streaming service was to provide an in-depth look inside the lives of the Royal Sussexes and even the Royal Family of England. But even after two long years, nothing has come out of the huge deal. Even plans of Harry and Meghan sneaking footage from the Queen’s Royal Jubilee failed.
However, after a long time, it looks like things have finally started to gain momentum. Reportedly, Meghan and Harry have secured a director for their docuseries.

In April, Netflix cameras followed the Sussexes to the Invictus Games in The Hague. And it is also believed that Netflix is going to squeeze the most out of the deal.
The streaming service also dropped Meghan’s animated program, Pearl. The Archewell Productions project was supposed to center on the experiences of a 12-year-old girl inspired by historical figures.
Meghan was set to co-executive produce the show with Sir Elton John’s filmmaker spouse, David Furnish.
As of now, there are not many details as to what we will see in the docuseries by the Royal Couple. It was even reported that Royal Aides stopped Netflix from getting any photographs clicked during the Jubilee celebrations.
