King Charles is poised to face another royal crisis, as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could release their Netflix docu-series in weeks. While the title, the content and the exact release date of the docu-series remain unknown, it will be on top of the King’s concerns, a royal biographer claimed.

Daily Mail columnist and the Queen’s biographer Robert Hardman said King Charles is a “workaholic”. 

The Palace Confidential’s host Jo Elvin said it is “good news” because he has inherited the “too difficult folder”. 

Asked what is top of the pile, Mr Hardman said: “I think the Duke of Sussex’s book is an issue, the Sussexes’ film with Netflix – that’s an issue.

“But in the same way as the Queen, he approaches these things as like her father taught her when he wa in the navy.”

Mr Hardman said: “Storms pass and you get on with it. 

“And sometimes, you have to batten down the hatches. 

Despite the upcoming royal crises, the royal biographer believes “the main focus is going to be coronation and after that, we’ll get over the idea of the newness of the reign. 

“Then, it becomes a settled new order. And I think that’s uppermost in his mind.”

Netflix still has not acknowledged a Netflix series is planned but unnamed sources have revealed the highly-anticipated series could hit the streaming giant as soon as December.

Meghan and Harry first signed a multi-year deal with Netflix in September 2020, with The New York Times reporting that the California-based couple would exclusively create documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming for the Archwell Productions. 

Asked what royal fans can expect from the docuseries, Meghan told Variety: “It’s nice to be able to trust someone with our story — a seasoned director whose work I’ve long admired — even if it means it may not be the way we would have told it.

“But that’s not why we’re telling it. We’re trusting our story to someone else, and that means it will go through their lens.”

However, Deadline threw doubts on Page Six’s claim that the series would air this year, claiming Netflix executives were so “rattled” by the backlash to The Crown they postponed the docu-series to 2023. 

In an interview with The Cut, the Duchess also said the series would largely be a love story: “The piece of my life I haven’t been able to share, that people haven’t been able to see, is our love story.”

Meghan and Harry originally hired Oscar-nominated director Garrett Bradley to work on their docuseries but “had a falling out with her over the vision of the project”, with a insider claiming there were disagreements over the show’s “tone”. 

The source said: “Garrett wanted Harry and Meghan to film at home and they were not comfortable doing that. There were a few sticky moments between them, and Garrett left the project. Harry and Meghan’s own production company captured as much footage as they could before Liz Garbus was hired.”
