If Prince Harry refuses to give up a £100 million Netflix deal over the The Crown dispute, he would be stripped of his royal title.
A royal expert has suggested that if Prince Harry refuses to give up his £100 million Netflix deal over The Crown’s portrayal of his mother, he should forfeit his royal title.
Despite having a lucrative contract with Netflix, the Duke of Sussex has remained mute on the streaming giant’s controversial portrayal of Princess Diana.
The fifth season of The Crown, which premieres in November, will focus on Diana’s final years before her death in a Paris automobile crash in 1997.
Her divorce from Prince Charles will be discussed, as will her romances with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan and billionaire Dodi Fayed, as well of her shocking BBC interview with Martin Bashir.
Diana’s friends, on the other hand, have expressed worries about how she would be depicted in the new series, which will star Australian actress Elizabeth Debicki, 31.
Prince Harry’s decision to remain silent has been criticized, with royal analyst Robert Jobson advising him to lose his title or back out of the streaming service arrangement.
“They need to become more honest with themselves,” he told Good Morning Britain.
“When it comes to Netflix, the reality is that it’s all about the statistics, the multi-millions.” He’s not going to say no to that.
“Because of the royal family, they’ve gained a platform.” Let’s face it: before she married, Meghan Markle was a B-rated actress.
“She’s now got a title, and she’s using that title to campaign in America on political problems,” Harry, an army officer who did a fantastic job in Afghanistan, says he wouldn’t have had this platform if it weren’t for the royal family.
“Just get rid of the title, get rid of the title.”
“They’ve completely ruined the royal family’s image in America.” This frustrates me because I don’t believe the queen and the company deserve the criticism they’ve received, and I think it’s a little silly.”
The Megxit deal, which saw Harry and Meghan leave the UK and go to the United States, stipulated that Harry would not use his HRH title, though he would keep it.
The palace revealed that he and Meghan would lose their patronages, as well as Harry’s honorary military titles, as part of the deal.
Meghan Markle said last night that she is “standing up for what’s right” in the midst of a “arduous” legal battle over a private letter to her father.
During an interview with the New York Times, the Duchess of Sussex highlighted the legal fight.
As the matter returns to court this week, she has promised to fight to the bitter end.
The mother-of-two is currently in the midst of a three-year legal struggle with Associated Newspapers Ltd, the publisher of the Mail on Sunday (ANL).
