Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did NOT inform the Queen about $150m Netflix deal before announcing it to the world leaving her to hear the news from aides royal source claims.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry failed to tell the Queen about their Netflix deal, which could be worth as much as $150million, before announcing it to the world, a royal source has claimed.
The Duke, 35, and the Duchess of Sussex, 39, who recently bought a $14million mansion in Santa Barbara, have signed a new deal with the streaming service, and say they want to provide ‘hope and inspiration’ with their upcoming projects.
Yet Her Majesty, 94, had to be told by her aides about the couple’s new venture – which involves a yet-to-be-named production company set on making documentaries, feature films and children’s programming.
A source told The Sun: ‘Harry did not inform the Queen about the Netflix deal.’
It comes following reports that royal officials ‘will examine the pair’s deal’ after they agreed to approval of any new commercial ventures when they quit public life.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have never produced a TV show, will make documentaries, films, scripted and kids’ programmes in the new partnership.
‘Her Majesty is all too aware of the pitfalls of when senior royals embark on lucrative projects – Prince Edwards’ production flop and some of the deals Sarah Ferguson has signed over the years to name a few,’ the source told Fabulous.
