The adage is clear, “Rome was not built in a day.” And it is just as valid for the Megxit and the empire the Sussexes wish to build. In January 2020, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their joint decision to give up their royal duties, opting to find refuge across the Atlantic. But in the months leading up to her break with the monarchy, and as the New York Post magazine’s Page Six recently reported, the ex-actress laid the groundwork, working closely with people who could help her finalize its lucrative deal with Netflix.
Remember, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed this juicy deal in September 2020 but, according to new reports, the couple were already in the middle of a discussion with the streaming giant in 2018. So their new animated series, Pearl , would have been in preparation for several years. Indeed, Meghan Markle has already worked with David Furnish while she was still in England. “Much of it was orchestrated by Meghan’s collaborators in America,” said a source close to the monarchy, this time to British newspaper The Telegraph. “It was a bit of a secret plan.”
What other Sussex project shakes the Crown?
Still grain to grind for the detractors of Meghan Markle, who accuse her of all the shenanigans. When her husband announced that he wanted to publish his memoirs, which would also be riddled with explosive revelations, the former star of the Suits series was singled out as being the main source. “A book by Harry, not written by Meghan”, bitterly slipped a relative of the Crown to the Daily Mail. He added: “They have spent the last 18 months doing everything they promised Her Majesty they would not do – making a living from their previous life and being a member of the royal family . It’s sadly predictable, unfortunately. “
