    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down from their royal family roles this year after months of discussions.

    The Sussex couple lost their HRH titles and their Sussex Royal brand and relocated to California to prioritise their family of three and mental health over their former roles.

    As former working royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex used to have their hands full with charity work, official tours and royal meetings. Now however, they will not act on behalf of the royal family.

    Since their resignation, there has understandably been speculation around what this actually means and what the Sussex couple will do next.

    Both Meghan and Harry have been delivering empowering speeches and there are even rumours that the Duchess of Sussex could be venturing into politics, speaking out recently about voter suppression.

    This week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as a duo made news as they signed a huge Netflix deal to make movies and TV programmes.

    Yes, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are now officially Hollywood producers.

    According to The New York Times, Harry and Meghan have signed a multiyear production deal with Netflix, and will be creating content, including children’s programmes, TV shows, docuseries, documentaries and feature films.

    The couple reportedly announced in a statement: ‘Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.’

    They continued: ‘As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.’

    Netflix’s co-chief executive and chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, also expressed his excitement in a statement, announcing: ‘We’re incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere.’

    Congratulations to Harry and Meghan!
