Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s deal could see them rake in up to £75million through documentaries and films, a source said. It is understood Her Majesty was not directly informed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex before details of their partnership with the streaming giant were publicly announced. Instead the Queen was forced to find out the details from her aides, which has sparked a furious response from royal fans on social media.


One royal watcher tweeted: “Harry and Meghan are selling out the Queen!”

Another person said the couple “think they can do what they like when they like”.

While a third questioned if now would be a suitable time to “take away their titles”.

Less than six months after officially bowing out of royal life the couple this week revealed their latest venture which will see them focus heavily on creating children’s programmes.

A source told The Sun: “Harry did not inform the Queen about the deal.”

The monarch, 94, is understood to have been told by her aides.

The source added: “Her view is simple: the royals are not for sale and danger surrounds high profile roles outside of the institution itself.

“But knowing her grandson Harry as she does, the Queen will know there would have been little chance of talking Harry and Meghan out of it.”
