Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are reportedly considering a sequel to their controversial Netflix docuseries, amidst escalating tensions with the British royal family. This speculation comes as the couple continues to delve into various creative endeavors with Netflix under their production company, Archewell Productions.
According to an exclusive interview with The Mirror, prominent publicist Lynn Carratt weighed in on the potential direction of the Sussexes' upcoming projects. Carratt suggested that the couple is focusing their efforts on expanding Archewell Productions' reach.
However, the recent departure of their production manager, Bennett Levine, has left them in search of a replacement. Levine's exit, occurring less than two years into his tenure, aligns with the couple's increasing financial challenges.
Royal Documentary Plans
Carratt posited that Harry and Meghan might be pursuing an extended partnership with Netflix, especially after the setback of Levine's departure. The streaming giant, known for its appetite for compelling content, is believed to be interested in a 'juicy' feature documentary that delves into the couple's royal history.
This project could potentially offer an intimate glimpse into their lives within the monarchy, an aspect that has garnered global attention. Additionally, Carratt speculated that the couple's future slate could include a continuation of the 'Harry & Meghan' docuseries, alongside a documentary about Africa, a continent close to Prince Harry's heart.
These projects align with the Sussexes' previous endeavors, which have often focused on personal and humanitarian themes. The possibility of these projects comes at a time when the Duke and Duchess are navigating their roles outside the royal family, while also dealing with the complexities of their public image and personal ventures.
With their unique position in both royal and celebrity circles, any content they produce is likely to spark significant interest and debate. The development of these potential projects remains under speculation, as the Sussexes and Netflix have yet to confirm any specific details.
However, the public and media alike are eagerly awaiting further announcements from the couple, who have continually made headlines since stepping back from their royal duties.
