The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle has recently announced that she will be producing a new animated series for which, she has collaborated with streaming giant Netflix, has contradicted her husband Prince Harry's claim that working with Netflix was "never part of the plan."
It has been reported that the duchess, who recently gave birth to her second child, daughter Lilibet Diana, had the project in the pipeline for a long time. It has emerged the production has been years in the making - with Meghan first entering talks with Netflix three years ago.
The recently announced animated series is titled as Pearl. The family-oriented show will follow a 12-year-old girl's "heroic adventures" as she is inspired by famous women in history.
The confirmation on Meghan, working with Netflix comes in stark contrast to Harry's claim that signing lucrative commercial deals was "never the intention."
The Duke of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey during their earthshaking interview: “We didn’t have a plan about the deal." Harry added, "That was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us.”
It has nearly been a year since Meghan and Harry signed a deal with Netflix, thought to be worth up to $150 million. However, the couple has only announced two series for the streaming giant and has yet to release any content.
Harry and Meghan also signed a lucrative deal with Spotify worth up to $50 million - and has only produced one podcast so far. They are under pressure "to produce the goods."
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry quitted the royal job with an aim to become financially independent. But, it’s been a long and hard road for the young couple trying to make their way in the world.
