While the couple signed a big contract with Netflix, the British royal family could add its grain of salt. They have a say in all the deals Meghan and Harry make.
What must have been great news for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is being overshadowed by the British Royal Family. The couple has just joined the Netflix family by signing a potential $100 million deal with the streaming platform, as reported in the New York Times.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will offer their own documentaries, films and children’s programming through their company, whose name is still unknown. The Daily Mirror reports that the British Crown may veto the deal if it is gossiped.
According to a source interviewed by the British tabloid, the firm should take a critical look at the new agreement. Since their departure from the monarchy, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are not completely free to move.
They cannot sign trade agreements without being discussed with the royal family. The concern of the latter: to know the content of their new career, while the parents of Archie still have to refund the 2.4 million pounds sterling spent for the renovation of their manor of Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor.

“Harry and Meghan are gone, while they were active members of the family (…), we sincerely hope that they will find the happiness that seemed so lacking in their lives,” revealed the source. “However, it goes without saying that any agreements they make will be reviewed by the royal family. (…) This agreement with Netflix (…) is an example of this.”
This contract with the streaming platform is the first commitment signed by Meghan and Harry since the official announcement of Megxit. Remains however an unknown: will they use their official titles in their work with the American giant? Time will reveal this secret.
