You know how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle nabbed a production deal with Netflix? Well, it wasn’t their initial plan.
Podcast hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the news in a brand-new episode of Royally Obsessed, where they broke down the couple’s multi-million-dollar contract with the streaming service.
Although it seems like a smart move for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, it wasn’t initially a top priority—that is, until Queen Elizabeth required them to part ways with the “Sussex Royal” brand, forcing the couple to adjust their strategy.
“They also had to pivot from their full plan. They were going to do Sussex Royal, but the Queen put a stop to that,” Bowie explained. “They really had a different idea in their heads in January of how this would all go. So, I’m curious how long the Netflix deal has been in discussions, but I feel like they have made things happen.”
