Meghan Markle’s new Netflix show is based on a book she wrote in eighth school.
MEGHAN MARKLE unveiled her next Netflix project this week, a 12-year-old girl-centered animated series that looks to be based on a book she wrote while she was in eighth school.
The Duchess of Sussex has stated that she will serve as executive producer for the Netflix animated series “Pearl.” Because Meghan is a well-known feminist and outspoken supporter of women’s rights, there have been rumors that a show like this is in the works since she and Prince Harry inked their lucrative deal with Netflix last September. “Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she struggles to conquer life’s daily challenges,” the Duchess said in a statement about her new initiative.
She went on to say that the protagonist, who is 12 years old, is “influenced by a range of notable women throughout history.”
It will be the first animated series produced by Meghan and Harry’s new production company, Archewell Productions, though no release date has been set.
Meghan had already stated that she was going into children’s entertainment after the release of her children’s picture book, “The Bench,” earlier this year, but her interest in motivating young females began when she was still a youngster.
Carla Hayden, the Librarian of Congress, disclosed this month that the Duchess of York penned her first children’s book decades ago.
“Did you know Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, wrote a book called A Face Without Freckles…Is a Night Without Stars in eighth grade?” she tweeted.
“With drawings and words, she extols the wonder of freckles.”
“Some people believe freckles are strange,” the book says, “but I disagree,/ since if I didn’t have my freckles,/ I wouldn’t be truly myself!!! ”
This looks to align with Meghan’s new theme for ‘Pearl,’ which aims to address “life’s daily obstacles” for 12-year-olds.
There is also a hint at the end of ‘A Face Without Freckles’ that Meghan had intentions to continue her literary career.
“Meghan authored this book as a school project in eighth grade, and now hopes to continue writing throughout high school,” it says in the ‘About the Author’ section.
Meghan filed it to the Copyright Office in 1996, and the book is currently housed in the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, according to the librarian.
