As reported by The Inquisitr, rumors began circulating on Monday that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are developing a "fly-on-the-wall" reality series for Netflix, which would effectively put a camera crew with the pair to document their lives for three months. Reportedly, it was to be "tasteful," and would give viewers a glimpse into the "real [Meghan]."
"They may have had all these lofty ideas about producing epics highlighting environmental causes and the poverty gap, but Netflix obviously want their pound of flesh," said a source of the rumored series.
The couple has, in fact, signed a deal with Netflix to produce content for the streaming service. The multi-year contract is reportedly worth tens of millions of dollars.
However, they are definitely not making a reality series about themselves, according to a spokesperson for Prince Harry.
"The Duke and Duchess are not taking part in any reality shows," the source said.
The official announcement was somewhat rare in that members of the royal family have traditionally avoided responding to rumors. However, since resigning as senior members of the royal family and moving to the United States, Harry and Meghan have taken a more active role in protecting their brand, including by responding more frequently to rumors and even filing lawsuits, as Insider reported.
So, if the couple isn't making a reality series about themselves for Netflix, what are they making for the popular streaming service? For now, that question remains unanswered, as details about what, specifically, they're working on remain scarce.
However, a Netflix spokesperson issued a statement that did give a glimpse into what sort of content the pair is making in coordination with the streaming service, though it didn't directly address the rumored reality TV series.
"The couple already have several projects in development, including an innovative nature docuseries and an animated series that celebrates inspiring women," a representative said.
Similarly, an unidentified informant confirmed that the type of projects the Sussexes will be producing will be in line with their personal advocacy.
"Enabling a more compassionate and equitable world isn't just something they do through their non-profit, it's a belief they hold and model themselves which will carry through in this venture," said a source.
It remains unclear when any Sussex-produced content will arrive on Netflix.
