The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's contract with Netflix expires next year

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's upcoming book adaptation could be the couple's "final project" for Netflix, according to a PR expert.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a lucrative deal with the streaming giant after stepping down as working royals in 2020.


However, there has been no announcement on whether their contract with Netflix will be extended past the 2025 expiration date.

The couple have produced two documentaries for the platform, Harry & Meghan which was a huge streaming success and Heart of Invictus which failed to reach the same heights as their debut project.

The Sussexes are reportedly working on several projects for the platform but none have been given a release date or promoted publicly.

Last year, Meghan and Harry's production company acquired the rights to author Carley Fortune's book Meet Me at the Lake.

PR expert Lynn Carratt from Press Box stated this could be the couple's final project for Netflix as the partnership looks to be coming to an end.

Carratt said: "This year, they are producing a film which will stream exclusively on Netflix called Meet Me at the Lake, a film adaptation of the novel by Carley Fortune.

"That could be their final production with Netflix if their contract isn’t renewed."

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams pointed to Meghan and Harry's previous reliance on hitting out at the Royal Family as the reason behind a drop off in opportunities for the Sussexes as the public does not support the continued attacks.

Fitzwilliams told GB News: "They have made money by trashing the Royal family.
