Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have made headlines once again with their bombshell deal with US streaming giant Netflix as they make progress toward becoming financially independent following their Royal Family split earlier in the year.
The couple said in a statement: “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.”
The couple also said they were focussed on making family programming, which makes sense given their one-year-old son Archie Harrison.
Harry and Meghan are also confident Netflix’s “unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action”.
At this point, it is unclear if the couple is planning to star in the documentaries themselves or whether they will just be producing them.
But Meghan, a former actress, has made it clear she does not wish to return to acting.
Before marrying Harry, she also appeared in movies like Remember Me and ran her own lifestyle blog, The Tig.
Her total net worth from her acting days is estimated at £3.78million ($5million).
Her husband’s £26.44million ($35million) net worth comes from his inheritance from his mother Princess Diana and his father, who gives him an allowance.
Before the Netflix deal, the couple took more steps to become financially independent, having signed with Harry Walker Agency, a public speaking agency with some big names on its books.
They will hold “moderated discussions” and give the keynote speeches to trade associations, businesses and community forums, the LA Times has reported.
The talks will also focus on racial justice, gender equality, the environment and mental health.
The agency also counts the Obamas, Clintons, Serena and Venus Williams, and TV legend Oprah Winfrey as clients – in their first career move since moving to Hollywood.
Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, got a taste of the speaker’s circuit in February when the prince spoke at a private event in Miami for banking giant JP Morgan.
They were reported to have earned up to almost £750,000 ($1million) for the appearance – one month before they moved to Los Angeles after they quit the Royal Family.
