Prince Harry and Meghan to harness 'star-crossed lovers' experience in rom-coms for Netflix - reports

  • 04/02/2023

Prince Harry and Meghan are reportedly moving away from the spotlight to help produce rom-com series.

The couple is tipped to be working with streaming giant Netflix again with reports they have several television series in the pipeline.

A source told the Telegraph the royal couple will be focusing more on fictional, scripted content.

"There will be more of a heavy focus on fictional scripted content. It will be rom-coms, feel-good and light-hearted programmes," they told the UK news outlet.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have previously admitted their love of the rom-com genre with Harry revealing his love of the sitcom Friends in his book Spare. Meghan has also said she would watch all of Julia Roberts' rom-coms. 

Last year Meghan also hinted that the pair hoped to make more "fun" content like rom-coms.

On Saturday, the Telegraph said Harry and Meghan will harness their own experience as "star-crossed lovers" into the series in a move that will steer from the usual content about themselves. The pair are understood to have executive producer roles.

The pair have worked with Netflix before, releasing their two-part documentary series Harry and Meghan which explored their courtship to their exit from royal life.

Prince Harry also published his controversial memoir Spare earlier this year.

The memoir details some of the most personal conflicts and tensions within the royal family, describing incidents of physical aggression between the two brothers. 

The book also claims Prince Harry and Prince William begged their father not to marry Camilla, that Harry killed 25 Taliban fighters while serving in Afghanistan and that he has used drugs.
