Meghan Markle “fades” after the humiliation of Megxit and Netflix Pearl | royal | News

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s decision to distance themselves from the royal family has backfired on the couple, according to a royal commentator. It comes as Netflix decided to drop Meghan’s Pearl animated series before it was even made. Andrew Pierce, consultant editor of the Daily Mail, told Palace Confidential the decision shows the Duchess’ star power is on the wane.

He added that the streaming giant is coming to terms with the royal couple “not being the investment they thought they were”.

The Archewell Productions show was one of two projects announced as part of Harry and Meghan’s multi-million pound Netflix deal.

Pearl was to focus on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl inspired by influential women in history.

Mr Pierce said: “What does he say about Meghan falling out of favor?

“That contract was signed in 2020 – he’s not even two years old and they’ve already realized his stardom is fading in the States.”

He continued: “She only got fame because she married into the British royal family.

“And every time Harry opens his mouth, he puts another wedge between him and his own family.

“He is distant and disconnected.

“I think Netflix is ​​realizing that they’re not the investment they thought they were.

She also hasn’t seen the couple’s first-born, Archie Harrison – who turned three yesterday – in two years.

A spokesperson for the couple said: “Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are delighted and honored to attend the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June with their children.”

However, on the same day, Buckingham Palace announced that the couple would not be invited to the royal balcony for Trooping the Colour.

Despite the snub, a palace source insisted the Sussexes are “much loved members of the family” and have been invited to other jubilee events.
