Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are said to be chilling about their still unconfirmed Netflix docuseries. After rumors that it might be a spinoff of Markle’s animated series and be scrapped for good, “Page Six” stated that the actual amount of material would drop in early December, but there was disagreement over whether release.
As part of a massive deal with Netflix, Harry and Meghan are said to have filmed a trove of documentaries about their lives in Montecito, California, as they raised their two children, Archie and Lilibet. But in the wake of the queen’s departure, the duo are said to be demanding major edits to the scene, which has put the entire project in jeopardy. Many have suggested that the footage includes discussion of the couple’s strained relationship with the royal family, which they may want to edit as King Charles III, Harry’s father, is seated on the throne. According to one Daily mail source, they are trying to “downplay much of what they have said about King Charles III, Queen Camilla, and the Prince and Princess of Wales.” The filmmakers behind the series are said to be fighting to keep the footage in production, a contradiction Daily mail Hints can keep documents from being released. Another source told the tabloid, “They’ve made significant requests to review the content they’ve provided themselves.”

Harry and Meghan’s position with the royal family is now changing. Although the two were briefly reunited to honor the queen, their public mourning was accompanied by many behind-the-scenes rumors – including Harry’s uniform and his We are not invited to a royal reception with world leaders. And although Charles has settled into his role and ended his period of official mourning for Queen Elizabeth, he has yet to confirm Archie and Lilibet’s new titles. Under the usual rules of succession, as the king’s grandson, the two children must be called prince and princess, but the royal family’s official website still lists them as “Master Archie Mountbatten- Windsor” and “Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.” Sunday Times reported that a source said, “For [Buckingham Palace] not making those changes indicates that something is wrong. “Page Six” suggests Charles is waiting to see the contents of Harry’s memoirs and the archives before making a decision.
