Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton considering working together on new Netflix project

Could we be in for a 'Real Duchesses of the United Kingdom'  type show? Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are reportedly working together on a new project for Netflix. 

An inside source told US Weekly that Meghan Markle reached out to her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, about sharing an inside look into her life as the future Queen. 

"Meghan and Kate are actually getting along really well and have been in touch more often," the source told US Weekly. 

"Meghan has been talking to her about collaborating on a project for Netflix, a documentary that will spotlight Kate’s charity work and the huge impact she’s made with her philanthropy."

The source said Middleton is "very flattered" by the gesture from her sister-in-law, and is considering the offer. 

The two Duchesses are reportedly "closer than ever, and are working on their relationship for the sake of the family". 

US Weekly reported in June that Middleton had reached out to Markle following the birth of her second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, and was trying to "build a relationship" with her sister-in-law.

There were rumours of a rift between the two Duchesses after Markle revealed Middleton had made her cry before her wedding to Prince Harry, during her tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey

"It was a really hard week, and she was upset about something. She owned it and she apologized, and she brought me flowers and a note apologizing. She did what I would do if I knew I hurt someone," Markle said to Winfrey at the time

Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, signed a deal with Netflix in September 2020, which involves the pair creating a wide variety of original content for the streaming giant, including documentaries, movies, television series and children's programmes.

"As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us. Netflix’s unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action," the pair said in a statement announcing the deal last year.

The deal is reported to be worth between NZ$149m and $198m.
