If she is no longer unanimous within the Royal family, Meghan Markle nevertheless receives many supporters. And for her latest project, in partnership with Netflix, the Duchess of Sussex can count on an ally of choice in the person of David Furnish, husband of Elton John.
If some people have thought for a long time alone against all, that time is over. The royal family may have turned its back on Meghan Markle, but the Duchess of Sussex still has a nice fan club. In this circle, the tennis player Naomi Osaka, the actress Priyanka Chopra but also David Furnish, the husband of Elton John. With the latter, the wife of Prince Harry has decided to do business. Together they will produce a new animated series for Netflix, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Pearl is a series about a “12-year-old heroine who finds inspiration in influential women in history.” And that is part of the successful deal that links the Sussexes to Netflix. It was this Wednesday, July 14, that this new project was announced. Meghan Markle, ex-actress of Suits, will hold the roles of creator and executive producer. A great first for the mother of Archie and Lilibet Diana. David Furnish is executive producer of the series, which will focus on “the adventures of a 12-year-old girl” as she tries to “overcome life’s difficulties”.
Will Diana be highlighted in the series?
“Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s everyday challenges,” Meghan Markle said in a statement. The Duchess of Sussex said she was delighted that her production company Archewell Productions could work in partnership with “the powerful platform that is Netflix” as well as “these incredible producers.” She gave no indication as to which influential women will be highlighted in the program. Will Princess Diana be among them? Recall that Elton John, husband of David Furnish, was a good friend of Harry’s late mother, and always maintained a close relationship with the latter after the death of the princess in 1997.
