We’ll be keeping up with the Sussexes soon.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly agreed to shoot a fly-on-the-wall reality show – but the couple are now being classified as “hypocritical” due to their repeated demands for privacy.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were originally only supposed to stay behind the camera for their multi-year deal with Netflix – but a source told The Sun that Markle wants the world to see the “real you.”
The couple will allow Netflix cameras to follow them in “tasteful” documentaries for three months as they begin their new lives in chic Montecito, California, according to the British newspaper.
“They might have all these lofty ideas of producing epics that highlight environmental causes and the poverty gap, but Netflix obviously wants their pound of meat,”
Another source insisted that the documentaries focus mostly on their “philanthropy, not what they do behind closed doors,” and it’s not clear if cameras will be allowed in their new $ 14 million mansion .
“But it will still be a fascinating insight and Meghan hopes viewers can see the real woman,” a source told The Sun.
However, Royal Observers were quick to discover that the couple were known to have torn the media up for intrusion into the press, and even claimed it was part of their decision to leave Megxit and start a new life outside the UK.
“We were told they went to California for privacy, so it all seems pretty hypocritical,” Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, told The Sun.
“It is extraordinary. That’s what they said they wouldn’t do it.
“The more they talk about themselves, the more people want them to do just that and not care about anything else they have to offer.”
Former minister Norman Baker accused the two of “clearly taking advantage” of their connections with Buckingham Palace, despite losing responsibility for royal duties.
“Let’s be honest, Netflix wouldn’t make Harry a big offer because of his interesting views,” Baker told Good Morning Britain on Monday.
“They’re offering him the deal because of his royal family ties, which he’s taking advantage of,” he said, calling on Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, to remove the Sussex royal titles.
The show host, former America’s Got Talent star Piers Morgan, blamed former Suits star Markle.
“When does the penny she brought here start taking our prince, and now Mrs. Privacy is flying a $ 150 million flight in the wall documentary where every part of her life is filmed?” he asked on the show.
Netflix told The Sun that the Sussexes “have several projects under development, including an innovative nature documentary and an animated series celebrating inspiring women”.
“But we are currently not publishing a program list,” said the streaming service.
