Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix projects are in their final stages and will be coming this year, royal biographer Omid Scobie has claimed.

Harry and Meghan signed up to lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify shortly after re-settling in the US as working celebrities.

This marked the couple’s transition away from royal life, and the pair have listed an animated series and documentary on the Archewell Productions arm of their website as underway.

And, speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast to hosts Roberta Fiorito and Rachel Bowie, Omid Scobie, who penned the controversial biography Finding Freedom on the couple, suggested that fans could see projects soon.

The hosts and their guests were reflecting on the anniversary of the infamous Oprah Winfrey interview when they speculated that it had set them up for some considerable projects.

While the couple have taken on a number of new ventures since moving to LA, fans have been left without content on Netflix and Spotify, prompting some commentators to suggest that the streaming companies have “taken matters into their own hands”.

“Covid hasn’t helped anyone, and I think for a couple that started off these big relationships with such fanfare, those moments to really follow up with the goods, in some ways it feels like they’ve passed,” Omid admitted.

However, the royal author reassured fans that they could expect to see something delivered soon.

“Although it may feel like the waters have tempered a little bit, I don’t think that will remain the case when they actually announce these projects and we see them," he continued.

“And we know they’re coming this year. Meghan’s animated series is in final stages or entering post-production, and then of course we’ve got Harry’s series based on Invictus, which will sort of reach its filming climax next month when the games take place in the Hague.

“So I think it’s all coming, But I think to some it has taken a little longer than expected.”

Harry is also set to release a tell-all memoir later on this year, and Omid suggested that this could mark a “finale moment” at the end of year.

But, he stressed that, despite alleged royal fears about what details the prince might include in the book, Harry will avoid criticising the Queen in her Jubilee year.

“I have been told by sources that Harry is really going out of his way to make sure that there isn’t material in there that could be seen as negative towards the Queen or her reign in any way whatsoever,” he claimed.

“I think for people expecting that ‘warts and all moment’, it’s not going to happen.”
