Prince Harry’s new Netflix series is “a last-ditch effort” for the Duke of Sussex, a royal commentator has claimed.

Prince Harry is set to release a new series following the world of professional polo, a sport close to the duke’s heart.

The duke and duchess have a $100 million deal with the streaming giant and have already released the docuseries Harry & Meghan, Heart of Invictus and Live to Lead.

Royal commentator, Kinsey Schofield, spoke about the couple’s “his and hers” Netflix series coming out.

Meghan is also set to release a documentary which will see the duchess celebrate the joys of cooking, gardening, entertaining and friendship.

Schofield told “Polo seems like a last-ditch effort to squeeze something out of Prince Harry specifically.”

According to the To Di For Daily host, Netflix doesn’t want any more “sappy” projects from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and wants to get their money’s worth which means producing “luxury, glamour, aspirational content.”

She said: “Polo is all that, but it is also a legitimate interest of Prince Harry’s.”

The topic of Harry’s project received some backlash with critics saying that it is an elitist sport which won’t resonate with the duke’s fans.

However, Schofield argued otherwise, stating: “Netflix knows that any scenes of Prince Harry with his guard down are of interest to the public.”

Harry’s series, shot primarily at the US Open Polo Championship in Wellington, Florida, will attempt to show what it takes to be a professional polo player.

The duke is a keen polo player and has been playing since he was young with his brother Prince William.

Earlier this month, the prince was spotted filming for the series in Florida where he attended a charity polo match with Meghan.

Harry and Meghan were joined by about a dozen crew members to capture the US Open quarter-final match between Coca-Cola and Valiente teams.

The new show will be produced by Miloš Balać, an Emmy award-winning filmmaker who focuses on sports, pop culture and politics.

He was also joined on the sidelines by his friend, Nacho Figueras, who has confirmed his involvement in the duke’s series.
