Are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ready to give up on releasing their Netflix series?
"A lot of conversations are happening," a source told the Post. "I hear that Harry and Meghan want the series to be held until next year, they want to stall. I wonder if the show could even be dead in the water at this point; do Harry and Meghan just want to shelve this thing?"
Apparently, Netflix's CEO Ted Sarandos is pushing back, as he wants the show to debut.
“Netflix has been keen to have the show ready to stream for December. There’s a lot of pressure on Ted, who has the relationship with Harry and Meghan, to get this show finished," another insider added.
However, according to royal expert Shannon Felton Spence, the duo may not be able to change their plans. "If the manuscript is in, and the show is in post production, Netflix and Penguin Random don’t care about the effect on the monarchy. It 100 percent has stuff in it that the royal family doesn’t want," she told Fox News Digital. "It could be catastrophic if The Crown, the memoir, and the Netflix show all come out bang, bang, bang like they are scheduled to. Netflix is smart. They know what they are doing. They know how to stack content releases for maximum marketability. And if any of this is true, it’s terrible for Harry and Meghan too. Those are epic deals."
“Once the dust settles, you can bet that Prince Harry will be summoned to speak to the King. There is no circumstance in the world where the King will not address the book before it is published. He has an obligation to the protect the crown. He will beg Harry not to release the book. The bigger question is whether or not he will be able to persuade Harry to cancel it, at whatever cost," a source exclusively told OK!.
