Prince Harry, Meghan Markle warned Netflix ‘demands’ Archie and Lilibet appearances
Royal experts warn Netflix will expect appearances by Archie and Lilibet in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s docuseries.
This claim has been made by royal biographer broadcaster Richard Eden, during an appearance with the Palace Confidential.
He began by saying, “For any good fly-on-the-wall documentary, you need some tension, you need drama, otherwise, it's just boring, isn't it?”
“You know, Netflix, they do want bang for their buck,” he also admitted.
“I think that Harry and Meghan, when they signed this multi-million pound deal with Netflix envisioned themselves as sort-of like the Obama's, who'd be commissioning these really worthy series, well, that's all been thrown out of the window.”
“Netflix have ditched Pearl, the very worthy animated series about a teenage girl inspired by Meghan and instead, they're going for what they think will sell which is a program about the Sussexes themselves.”
“I imagine it's going to be a constant debate. Look, they've always been keen to keep the children out of the public eye, but then when they gave that interview to Oprah Winfrey, what did we see? We saw Archie, you know, along the beach and we saw the first glimpses of family.”
Before concluding Mr Eden added, “So, I'm sure Netflix, if they're paying that money, would expect to see the children as well.”
