The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a $100m (£72m) contract with the streaming giant in 2020 after moving to the US, with a documentary titled ‘Heart of Invictus’ focusing on competitors at the Invictus Games expected to be released later this year. Page Six – opening its piece with ‘It’s Keeping up with the Sussexes!’ – quotes a producer source as saying that with regards to a docuseries about Meghan and Harry, “the timing is still being discussed, things are up in the air.”
The outlet claims Netflix bosses would like to air the show at the same time as the release of Prince Harry’s highly anticipated memoir, while the Sussexes are reportedly keen for the project to air next year instead.
The couple were shadowed by cameras during their trip to The Hague for the Invictus Games last month but the cameras have been reportedly allowed behind the scenes at their home in Montecito and joined the Sussexes on their New York trip last September.
It’s not yet known what will be included in the documentary, but a source said: “I think it’s fair to say that Netflix is getting its pound of flesh.”
