The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a lucrative deal with Netflix in 2020

Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet will not feature in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's new Netflix shows, insiders have claimed.

Harry, 39, and Meghan, 42, announced the two non-fiction Netflix shows last week, part of the couple's ongoing £80million deal with Netflix.

One series will see the Duke of Sussex showcase professional polo, a sport he has played since childhood.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Sussex will focus on lifestyle-centric topics like gardening and cooking, while promoting her new brand American Riviera Orchard.

But Archie, four, and Lilibet, two, will not appear in the shows, according to reports in The Sun.

The pair have rarely appeared in public with the exception of official photographs and a brief appearance in Harry and Meghan's 2022 Netflix docuseries.

The new shows will also be filmed away from the couple's £11million mansion, with camera crews instead heading to a neighbour's house in Montecito, California.

Last year, the Sussexes announced plans to produce a film adaptation of Carley Fortune's Meet Me At The Lake, which echoes their personal story and includes a character whose parent dies in a car crash.

Sources previously described the book as "right up their alley" because they "love love stories and rom-coms".

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex famously wanted to tell their own "love story" in their bombshell 2022 Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan.

The first series of the new programme will see Meghan "celebrate the joys of cooking, gardening, entertaining, and friendship".

The show is being produced by Sony Pictures Television’s The Intellectual Property Corporation.

The Duchess of Sussex is set to be an executive producer for Archewell.

Meanwhile, the second series will focus on the world of polo, and was primarily shot during the US Open Polo Championship in Wellington, Florida.

The show will go behind the scenes of the sport, exploring what it takes to compete at the highest level.

It is a topic that Harry is extremely experienced in, having played the sport since he was a child.
