Now that Buckingham Palace and Queen Elizabeth II have issued statements declaring the terms under which Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will step away from their royal duties, the couple is now free to start earning some money.
According to The Guardian, one company that’s eager to get into business with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is Netflix.
When asked if the streaming service had any interest in working with the couple, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said, “Who wouldn’t be interested? Yes, sure.”
As The Guardian points out, Netflix could be eyeing a deal similar to the one struck with Barack and Michelle Obama, which was announced in May 2018, in which the couple would produce “scripted series, unscripted series, docuseries, documentaries, and features.”
According to The Guardian, the “divorce deal” struck with Harry and Meghan came after talks that were said to be “extremely friendly and constructive because the common goal was clear, as was the desire to reach a successful conclusion — everyone was pleased to have got here today”, claimed a source.
While both sides of this royal conflict are said to be satisfied with the outcome, this is apparently not the case with Markle’s father. In a British TV documentary that has yet to air, Thomas Markle expressed his fears that the couple were in danger of “turning into lost souls,” adding: “They are turning it [the Royal Family] into Walmart with a crown on.”
