UPDATE, January 21 at 3:02 p.m. ET: As excited as some people may have been to hear that Netflix wants to collaborate with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, biographer Angela Levin, who wrote the 2018 book “Harry: Conversations With the Prince,” said she doesn’t see it happening. At least, not on the TV show The Crown. Why not? Because according to her, Prince Harry joked about flat out stopping the show before it ever got to him.
“Harry, when I went to interview him at the palace, the first thing he said to me when he shook my hand was ‘Are you watching The Crown?’” she told the BBC, per Page Six, adding that she “felt very embarrassed” by the question. Then he told her, “I’m going to make sure I stop it before they get to me.”
It’s been only a few days since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle confirmed they’d be leaving their current roles as working royals. However, the job offers are already rolling in for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, including interest from Netflix.
Naturally, following Harry and Meghan’s bombshell announcement to leave the monarchy in an official capacity—and the news that the pair have renounced any public funding in the future—royals fans have theorized that Markle may return to acting. It appears Netflix wouldn’t mind working with the couple as well.
“Who wouldn’t be interested?” Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarando said at the Producers Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday, per a report from the Daily Mail. “Yes, sure.”
While this is still a hypothetical, it’s not that unprecedented. After all, Meghan has already reportedly signed a deal with Disney to do voice-over work in exchange for a charitable contribution to Elephants Without Borders.
I, for one, would love to see what a collaboration between Harry, Meghan, and Netflix would look like.
