The cancellation by Netflix of an animated children’s series by the Duchess of Sussex is a big blow for Meghan and Prince Harry, a royal expert has said.
Rafe Heydel-Mankoo said this morning: “That’s a complete disaster for Harry and Megan and Archewell Productions.”
“Netflix is having big problems with a dip in subscriber numbers, falling revenues, a plummeting share price, having spent too much on other programmes and is cutting back, particularly on animated series.,” he said.
“So whilst Prince Harry’s Invictus documentary is carrying on, there is nothing for Megan to show for it and it’s really calling into question whether they can walk the walk – they’re good at talking the talk,” Heydel-Mankoo told GB News.
The couple signed up to Spotify, but they’ve only produced one podcast so far.
“The Netflix deal has been over for over a year now and there’s very little to show for it and it looks as if, apart from moaning about the royals, there’s not much that they’re able to do.”

Heydel-Mankoo added that, in relation to reports about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge moving to Windsor, that the royal couple have been looking at suitable schools in the area.
