Meghan Markle is the latest victim of Netflix’s cutbacks.
According to Deadline, the streaming service has canceled the Duchess of Sussex’s animated series, titled Pearl. Although the project was still in production, it’s one of many that didn’t make the cut in the aftermath of Netflix’s drop in subscribers. (Since the beginning of the year, its total number of users has fallen by 200,000.)
The animated series was supposed to focus on the adventures of a young girl named Pearl, who discovers her own potential as she meets famous women in history. (Markle even enlisted Elton John’s husband, David Furnish, as an executive producer.) The titular character was reportedly inspired by Markle. As Hello! magazine points out (via The Bump), the name “Meghan” means “pearl.”
