Ever since they relinquished their royal duties, Harry and Meghan have completely ignored the Queen’s advice. As proof, the Sussex have once again defied her authority by signing a very juicy contract with Netflix, without even bothering to inform her, reveals The Sun.
Last January, Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they wanted to “become financially independent”. Exiled in Los Angeles, the couple, who moved into a villa as luxurious as a palace, had no choice but to find enough money to finance their lifestyle.

“Harry did not inform the queen of the Netflix deal,” reveals one source. Indeed, Elizabeth II, who “is only too aware of the pitfalls when members of the royal family embark on lucrative projects” believes that the Royals are “not for sale” and that working “outside the institution itself” represents a real “danger”.

The queen has not been warned, but she does have a say in the matter. “It goes without saying that all the agreements they make will be examined by the royal family,” notes the source, and concludes: “This agreement with Netflix (…) is an example of this”. It remains to be seen whether Elizabeth II will decide to use her right of veto and play the troublemaker…
