It’s a rumor that had been circulating for months, since the beginning of the same year. On January 8, we learned of the new life of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan in North America. Soon after, many rumors began to spread about the royal couple’s possible interest in cinema. It must be said that the Duchess of Sussex was revealed to the whole world by the cameras, in the American series Suits. The rumor is now well founded. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have launched their own production company – whose name has not yet been revealed – and signed a contract with Netflix, as revealed by the New York Times this Wednesday, September 2. This is going to make people talk.
Princess Diana’s son and the 38-year-old woman “pitched screenplay ideas for series and films to Netflix,” we learn via Variety. Both signed a contract with the American streaming platform to release documentaries, feature films, scripted TV shows and finally children’s series. This nice contract, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have signed over several years.
But what will it consist of?
The couple spoke in a press release about this upcoming new project. “Our lives, independent of each other, and as a couple, have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: a spirit of courage, resilience and the need for connection”, they began by explaining . And to continue: “Through our work with various communities and their environments, to shed light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on the creation of content that informs but also gives hope, ”they added.
Archie’s parents will direct several films and series, about life stories and issues dear to their hearts, such as those that their recent philanthropic organization Archewell will highlight. Several projects are already in development, including a documentary-series and an animated series focused on inspiring women. Not really surprising from Meghan Markle who has already shown her devotion to feminist causes on numerous occasions.
