Meghan Markle Was Prepared, Pitched Netflix Deal Before Initiating Operation Megxit – British Royal Family
So, it looks like she might have been planning her departure before it even happened. There’s a new report that suggests Meghan Markle might have pitched her and Prince Harry’s multi-million dollar Netflix deal before they cut the cord on their relationship with the rest of the British Royal Family.
This, despite Prince Harry’s earlier claims that they did not approach the online streaming giant until after they stepped down from their roles as full-time working royals. Here’s what you need to know.
According to Page Six, the Duchess of Sussex started working with David Furnish on their Netflix project in 2018, and long before she and Prince Harry quit the royal family.

Yet, back in March, Prince Harry insisted that they never thought of teaming up with streamers such as Netflix and Spotify until they left the UK for sunnier days in California in early 2020.
He told Oprah Winfrey in their bombshell of an interview that their move to California was “never part of the plan”, adding, “That was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us.”
If that weren’t enough, Harry said that they were only able to start a new life thanks to the money that his late mother Princess Diana had left him.
“I’ve got what my mum left me, and without that, we would not have been able to do this,” he said.
But during the pandemic, a friend suggested: “‘What about streamers?’” Harry continued, while Markle added: “We genuinely hadn’t thought about it before.”
“We hadn’t thought about it,” Harry continued. “So, there were all sorts of different options. And look, from my perspective, all I needed was enough money to be able to pay for security to keep my family safe.’”
