The eagerly awaited Netflix documentary series about Prince Harry (38) and Duchess Meghan (41) is apparently a long time coming: As "Deadline" reports, the streaming service has decided not to start the documentary format in December of this year, but only to be published in 2023. The reason for this is said to be the current criticism of the fifth season of "The Crown". "Those responsible at Netflix are concerned and have decided to postpone the documentary," a source told the US industry magazine.
The episodes are set to explore some of the most intimate aspects of the princess's fractured marriage to new King Charles III. (73) and could possibly damage the reputation of the monarch. Most recently, former Prime Minister John Major (79), who is embodied in the series by Jonny Lee Miller (49), criticized the allegedly negative portrayal of Charles in the fifth season.
Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have been working on their documentary series for a long time, which is intended to give private insights into their lives after retiring as high-ranking royals. An official start date and further details were not yet known. The US celebrity page "Page Six" of the "New York Post" reported in July that the series should appear on the streaming service later this year. After the death of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) in September, according to "Deadline", the couple could now reconsider and possibly change the content of the documentary by postponing the start date.
