The royal family is reportedly "not happy" about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Netflix deal.
There's allegedly concern the Netflix deal will distract from other members of the royal family, which...uh...kay.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now financially independent from the royal family thanks to a lucrative Netflix deal rumored to be worth somewhere between $50-100 million. And according to Entertainment Tonight, the royal family is—as the outlet puts it—"not happy" with the deal because Harry and Meghan had agreed to a one-year review period re: stepping down from official royal duties.
ET has also reportedly learned there are "raised eyebrows" about attention from the Netflix deal potentially distracting from the charitable work of senior royals like Prince William, Prince Charles, and Kate Middleton.
Royal reporter Katie Nicholl spoke to some of these concerns, telling Entertainment Tonight, "There are some members of the institution who are concerned that the couple is going to cash in on their royal connections. They might be under pressure from Netflix to stray into upper territory, but sources close to the couple tell me that they are very adamant that anything and everything that they do is very much going to be in a respectful tone to the Queen, the monarchy, and very much on their missions."
Nicholl went on to say that the couple's projects aren't "going to be in style of The Crown or a royal documentary series. I'm sure that really isn’t on the table so if there are concerns in the palace, Harry and Meghan are making it really clear there is no need for concern."
100 percent this, and also pretty sure Meghan and Harry's success is a positive thing that doesn't mean people won't pay attention to the rest of the royals' charitable activities, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
