The Duke and Duchess of Sussex has reportedly agreed to star in a fly-on-the-wall Netflix reality series with cameras for three months.
One source says that Prince Harry and Megan Markle ‘give people a vision of their lives and see all the charitable work they do’.
It comes after the royal couple signed a $ 112 million Netflix deal to create TV series, movies and children’s shows for the streaming service.
Harry and Megan will be back after three months, but it is unclear whether cameras will be allowed on their home in Montecito, California.
