Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan: This is known about their Netflix documentary

The Netflix documentary series about Prince Harry (38) and Duchess Meghan (41) keeps making headlines. The latest rumor about the project, which has never been officially confirmed: it seems to be a long time coming. As the US industry portal "Deadline" reports, the streaming service has allegedly decided not to publish the documentary format in December 2022, but only in 2023. The reason for this is the current criticism of the fifth season of the Netflix series "The Crown".

The fictional TV show "The Crown" traces the life of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022). New episodes are scheduled to appear on November 9th. The royal family apparently fears that the reputation of King Charles III. (73) is damaged by "The Crown" because many people would not distinguish between the series and reality.

Season five of "The Crown" is causing so much excitement in advance that apparently Harry and Meghan's project could also be affected. "Those responsible at Netflix are concerned and have decided to postpone the documentary," a source told the US industry magazine. They may think that showing the Sussexes' new documentary right after "The Crown" is too much.

After the Queen's death, according to "Deadline", the couple could now reconsider and possibly change the content due to the alleged postponement of the documentary. Because there is speculation about that too. This is known so far about the documentary by Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan:

The documentary series is reportedly being produced by Netflix and Harry and Meghan's Archewell Productions. Neither the title nor the broadcast date are officially known. According to the reports, Netflix had actually planned to bring the documentary to the new "The Crown" season in a timely manner.

Scenes for the documentary are said to have been created on Harry and Meghan's property in Montecito, California. The couple, who have two children Archie (3) and Lilibet (1), moved there in 2020. At first there were rumors that the royal dropouts were planning a reality show in the style of the Kardashian family. This has since been denied several times. And there will probably not be a pure home story either.

The Sussexes probably want to present their point of view in the documentary. Other insiders rule out that there will be major changes after the death of the Queen, as speculated in media reports. According to "The Telegraph", the changes are normal adjustments as usual in TV projects. But this report also states that "the timing" for the documentary is not ideal given the death of the queen.

Harry and Meghan themselves, as well as Netflix, have so far kept a low profile about the documentary. In an interview with "The Cut", Meghan gave a little insight into the format. The Duchess of Sussex said: "The part of my life that I couldn't share, that people couldn't see, is our love story." She added that it was "really nice" to be able to tell your own story after the media had previously taken over.

According to the Telegraph, an insider said Harry and Meghan wanted to take the opportunity to show "where they come from, what they've been through and where they stand." The source added, "I think it will explain a lot about the choices they had to make and how they ended up here."

In addition to a deal with Spotify, the Sussexes struck a deal with Netflix in September 2020. The couple, who stepped down as senior royals in early 2020, said they would produce documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children's programs. The streamer is said to have canceled the animated series "Pearl" by Archewell Productions. A documentary about the "Invictus Games", an international sports competition for war veterans that Harry helped create, is said to be in the works.
