Queen and Prince Charles plan to set out rules for Harry and Meghan after Netflix backlash | Royal | News (Reports)


The Queen and Prince Charles are understood to be frustrated that Harry and Meghan did not consult the royals over the decision to sign a £112m deal with Netflix earlier this year. This frustration boiled over last month when Netflix’s biggest show The Crown came sparked a royal backlash for its unflattering portrayal of some Royal Family members. 9Honey’s Natalie Oliveri said that “the royals are in trouble for not consulting the Queen over the Netflix deal”.

Ms Oliveri said that Harry and Meghan’s decision not to consult their royal relatives before making the Netflix decision caused frustration behind Palace walls.

She said that the pair’s arrangement with Netflix could be a crucial topic discussed during the review of the so-called Megxit deal.

In March, key members of the royal household will gather to review the terms of the agreement struck back in January.

The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William will assess the situation more than a year after the shock departure.

The Queen and Prince Charles in particular are planning to question the pair about their Hollywood career plans, amid fear of further backlash against the Royal Family. 

The Australian royal correspondent said: “It sounds like Harry and Meghan are in hot water again.

“It all comes down to this Netflix deal, worth £112m and the issue here is how Netflix has been portraying the Royal Family.

“Harry and Meghan are being accused of being hypocritical because they are taking money from the streaming giant.

“The Crown is Netflix’s biggest show and Harry and Meghan need to make money now because they are no longer working royals.”

Prince Charles, 72, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, 73, were even forced to suspend comments on their Clarence House Twitter account earlier this month.

The shocking move followed a barrage of hate from angry trolls incensed by the fictional account of their relationship as portrayed in season four of the Netflix royal drama.

Princess Diana and the breakdown of her marriage to Prince Charles is at the centre of the new series.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk “There will be enquiries as to the work they plan to do, especially given the intentionally malign portrait that Netflix’s The Crown has painted of the Royal Family in the fourth season.”
