A royal expert has claimed Prince Harry may be left “out in the cold” by his family after his Netflix documentary airs.
The Royal struck up an £88 million deal with Netflix and has been working on the show that will closely examine his life behind the scenes. Reportedly, Harry tried to move the documentary back until next year. However, Netflix have stood firm and are planning to release it on the platform prior to Christmas.
The Royal Family have recently been in a dispute with the streamer due to fictionalised scenes in the latest series of The Crown. It is also believed Harry’s documentary has been edited following The Queen’s death.
In an interview with Sky News Australia (via Express), expert Prue MacSween speculated: “The public has turned really well and truly now with the death of Her Majesty. There was so much love for that woman and sympathy for her, and know, I think that he’s seen what he’s done, and I think that he’s probably lamenting it.
“It’s a runaway train for him because Netflix wants to capitalise on what’s happened this year, and I think he’s really going to find himself out in the cold. He’s made his bed, and he’s going to have to lay in it.”
Meanwhile, The Daily Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden believes Meghan’s recent interview with Variety was the beginning of the couple beginning to “distance themselves” from the production. He said: said: “We’re going to see a Netflix production about them which they are keen to distance themselves from, and let’s be clear why because it looks like it’s going to be awful for the Royal Family. There’s going to be lots of negative stuff.”
Eden added: “They want to be able to say that’s just the director’s vision that’s nothing to with us. It’s very alarming.”
