Prince Harry and Meghan have multiple projects planned with Netflix 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed a multi-year deal with Netflix back in 2020 after they stepped back from their royal duties and relocated to Meghan’s hometown in California. Their production company, Archewell Productions will create documentaries, feature films, scripted shows, and children’s shows for Netflix. 

Since their deal, the couple has made some very interesting projects for the platform including the Harry & Meghan docuseries which came out in 2022 and became Netflix’s biggest documentary debut ever. Other projects include Live to Lead, about changemakers such as Gloria Steinem and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which came out in December of 2022.

Heart of Invictus is another docuseries which provided the audience with a glimpse of the athletes preparing for Prince Harry’s Invictus Games at the Hague, and came out in August 2023. Author Carly Fortune confirmed with The Independent in the same month that Archewell Productions will also be adapting her novel Meet Me at the Lake for Netflix. 

In February of this year, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Bela Bajaria announced that Prince Harry and Meghan have multiple projects in development during the Next on Netflix event. According to Hello! magazine, Bajaria also said, "They have a couple of unscripted things they're working on with Brandon (Reigg). And they actually have like a bunch of development. They have a movie in development, a series that they're working on. But yeah, the movie's great."

People can expect to see some more announcements for some other new projects soon.
