The House of Windsor and the royal experts are undoubtedly not happy with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s docuseries. A few months back, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a multimillion-dollar deal with American streaming giant Netflix to produce shows, docuseries and other content. Their first product for the streamer, the docuseries, is expected to unveil sometime later this year.
The show is likely to be critical of King Charles III’s parenting skills, while it can also target Queen Consort Camilla. Harry’s elder brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton are also expected to be shown in a bad light. The docuseries will cause a lot of harm to the image of the monarchy. However, the royal experts and authors believe that Harry and Meghan will also be at a disadvantage.
Royal experts reflect on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix show
Harry and Meghan will be in trouble following the release of the show as they will be fighting against the King and Queen Consort. The Netflix deal would have been good for them if Queen Elizabeth II was still alive, as then they would not have been targeting the monarch and the institution. By upsetting the King, the Sussexes can close all doors of reconciliation in the future.
Speaking about the Netflix deal, expert Dan Wootton said that Harry and Meghan are releasing their mistake, but they have no way out now. The expert also levied an accusation on the couple saying that they have “signed away their credibility and their dignity”.
However, the author Tom Bower does not share the same point of view as Wootton. He believes that the need for money made Harry and Meghan sign a deal. The couple will not have a problem taking all the criticism, as this is the only way they can feed themselves.
“They need the money. And they need it now more than ever because they have got no other source of income. So, I think they are just stuck with the devil now. They are tied to Netflix, they are tied to their book,” Bower said as quoted by The News.
