Before the Netflix collaboration, Meghan’s friend David Furnish made a nice prediction.
Before the pair’s new Netflix partnership, MEGHAN MARKLE’s friend David Furnish predicted that she would commit to “big, great charity work” in her new life away from The Firm.
Meghan debuted her new Netflix project this week, an animated series for young children called “Pearl.” It’s been described as a “family series about the exploits of a 12-year-old girl who is inspired by a range of powerful women throughout history.” Even though the Duchess of Sussex has been beaten to producing a feminist animation since she and Prince Harry inked their megawatt agreement with Netflix last September, no release date has been set.

Mr Furnish’s complimentary sentiments came just months before the couple landed a deal with Netflix that is thought to be worth $100 million (£72 million).
Mr Furnish also discussed his bond with the Sussexes throughout the conversation.
“We have a lot in common with Harry and Meghan,” the producer remarked of his marriage.
“At the International Aids Conference in Amsterdam, Elton and Prince Harry started our MenStar Coalition, and we’ve raised money and contributed money to Sentebale, his HIV/AIDS children’s charity work in Lesotho.
“And Meghan and he both have a strong affinity for Africa, which is why so much of the work we do is rooted there.”
He further stated that the Sussexes were “like family” to him and Sir Elton, and that the.
