Page Six has confirmed that the Megan Markle began work on her partnership with Netflix before #Megxit.
Despite reports that the Sussexes only began to make deals after they were financially cut off by the royal family, the mother of two allegedly pitched to Netflix before then.
Meghan Markle started working on her Netflix project with David Furnish long before she quit England, back in 2018.
The duo were reportedly in active discussions with Netflix while Markle was still a senior working member of the royal family, and still living behind Palace walls.
During their bombshell Interview with Oprah which aired in March, Prince Harry insisted they had never thought of teaming up with streamers such as Netflix and Spotify until they sensationally quit the UK for the US in early 2020.
He noted that this was “never part of the plan”,
“That was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us,” he added.
“We hadn’t thought about it,” Harry continued. “So, there were all sorts of different options. And look, from my perspective, all I needed was enough money to be able to pay for security to keep my family safe.’”
The Netflix series was originally just one of a number of one-off advocacy projects that Markle started work on while a working member of the royal family, which included her charity cookbook to raise funds for the victims of the London Grenfell fire and the issue of British Vogue that she edited.
