What did Prince Harry say about the Netflix project?
Speaking about the documentary, Prince Harry said: “With Covid and everything else that is happening at the moment, your stories and the strength that you guys show, is incredible and that needs to be seen more.
“It needs to be spoken about more, to try and get rid of the stereotyping to get rid of those preconceptions.”
He added, “My biggest hope is that people will watch this film and go ‘No matter how hard my life is, no matter how hard a day or a week can be, this is what I aspire to, not just for me but for my family and all the loved ones around me.’
“It is that element that I think will end up changing the world, so well done and thank you very much.”
Harry and his wife Meghan have signed a new deal with Netflix after stepping down as Senior Members of the Royal Family in spring.
According to PR expert Jonathan Shalit, the Sussexes could earn tens of millions of pounds from their Netflix venture.
He says that their deal could be worth as much as £74.5 million, and added that Meghan and Harry’s pay could rise further after bonuses to over £175 million.
Jonathan said: “Never before has a Hollywood studio got hold of British royal family – this is historic.
“Meghan and Harry will hire shadow producers to do the work but their names alone attached to Netflix are gold dust.”
