British Royal Family News says that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are being urged to drop their multi-million dollar Netflix deal as it is being reported that the company has angered royal insiders with their show, The Crown. Here’s what you need to know.
As many fans probably already know by now, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s production company will be making documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming.
The move comes just eight months after the couple stepped down from their roles as senior royals and moved to Los Angeles.
British Royal Family News: Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Urged To Drop Their Netflix Deal
In a new column for the Mail on Sunday, royal journalist Emily Andrews went as far as to shame Prince Harry for his ties to the online streaming giant, seeing how Netflix has done nothing more than to shame the royal family with their depiction in The Crown.
Sources say that staffers behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace are none too pleased about how the show has delved into royal scandals from the past to the present for nothing more than entertainment purposes.
Andrews puts it this way, “Never before have members of her own family been associated with those ‘trolling’ the Monarchy. The unedifying impression is that, by having signed a deal with Netflix, Prince Harry and his former Hollywood star wife Meghan are seen to be lavishly benefiting from the company’s distortion of the truth about the Royal Family.”
She added, “Their reported $100 million (£78 million) deal with the US streaming giant will help give Harry financial freedom but it has raised eyebrows back home – particularly among those close to Charles and William. How can he take money from a company that traduces his family? That unfeelingly recreates the Irish terrorist bomb that killed Lord Mountbatten and three others? That mawkishly picks over the carcass of Harry and William’s parents’ bitter marriage break-up like a vulture?”
Netflix, which has 193 million subscribers worldwide, has not disclosed the financial terms of the deal. What’s more, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are yet to comment about the matter as well.
