It’s nearly one-year on from when Prince Harry and Meghan announced their departure from senior roles within the Royal Family. The Sussexes’ decision caused controversy at the time and questions were asked about how they would be able to survive without as much financial-backing from the Queen. Since then, the royals have brokered deals with Netflix and Spotify and moved to Santa Barbara, California.
Harry and Meghan’s deal with Netflix is reported to be worth $112million (£81million) and will see them produce TV shows for the streaming giant.
This week, it was reported that despite their deal the royals would not have any control over the editorial output of other shows including The Crown.
A Netflix source claimed that the show “was brought up” but the streaming platform “stood firm” and told them they would not be able to interfere.
They commented that the contents of The Crown would be left to filmmakers Leftbank and the show’s creator Peter Morgan.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
The source told The Sun: “Unless a legal matter, there is no interference.”

They claimed that the Sussexes “did not fight over this”, which the individual considered “odd given the next time period the show will cover”.
The source referred to the tragic death of Prince William and Harry’s mother Princess Diana in 1997, which will be covered next season.
Harry and Meghan have also bartered with the music and podcast service Spotify to secure a series, which is reportedly worth $40million (£29million).
The first episode of their Archewell Audio series aired last month and featured the couple’s son Archie Harrison speaking publicly for the first time.
During the recording, the one-year-old tried to say “Happy New Year” to listeners and The Guardian claimed to be able to hear a “slight American accent”.

The Evening Standard also reported that Harry and Meghan charged $1million (£730,000) for speaking at a virtual event.
It’s believed that they could earn even more when they can speak in-person at public gatherings.
The deals the couple have brokered will likely have shocked many in opposition to the couple’s departure, previously referred to as ‘Megxit’.
Their opponents included Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan, who has regularly criticised the couple for leaving their royal roles.
In his book, Wake Up: Why The World Has Gone Nuts, which was released in October, he called the couple “pathetic”.
