Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly engaged in negotiations with Netflix to develop a feature-length film that delves into the intricacies of royal life.
Following their successful release of the six-part series “Harry and Meghan” on the streaming platform, which focused on their decision to step back from their royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now planning to zoom in on their experiences within the palace walls. The inspiration behind this new venture allegedly stems from Netflix’s announcement about an upcoming film centered around Prince Andrew’s notorious car crash BBC interview with journalist Emily Maitlis, titled “Scoop.”
The film “Scoop” has already secured notable actors, with Rufus Sewell set to portray the Duke of York and Gillian Anderson taking on the role of Emily Maitlis. Additionally, Billie Piper and Keeley Hawes have been confirmed to appear in the production.
According to an insider, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle intend to gauge the reception of “Scoop” before proceeding further, but they firmly believe that they possess a compelling story that belongs on the big screen, focusing on the untold aspects of their lives within the palace. The source, speaking to Closer magazine, emphasized that the couple feels there are still nuances and details missing from their story, even after the documentary and Harry’s book.
Regarding their collaboration with Netflix, the royal couple is said to be satisfied with their previous financial compensation for the documentary and express eagerness to work with the streaming giant again. However, the source revealed that Netflix is not particularly interested in documentaries or children’s TV shows from the couple. Instead, they are seeking more captivating and intriguing content centered around their royal experiences.
Undoubtedly, if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decide to pursue this film project, a lucrative payday awaits them. The idea is highly tempting for the couple, with Meghan actively advocating for its realization while Harry approaches the matter with caution. Their team is currently engaging in discussions concerning the financial arrangements and the potential rights to their story.
The possibility of a feature-length film exploring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s journey through royal life has garnered significant attention, leaving fans and critics eager to see how their story unfolds on the silver screen.
