How much have Prince Harry and Meghan been paid by Netflix?
The exact amount that Netflix paid the couple has not been announced.
When they signed the Netflix deal with their company Archewell Productions in 2020, it was reported that they had been paid $100 million. It has since been speculated that they are yet to receive the amount in full.
The couple planned to "create content that informs but also gives hope" with Netflix, saying of the deal: "Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.
"Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope."
They added in their September 2020 statement: "As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens. We are pleased to work with Ted [Sarandos, co-chief executive and chief content officer at Netflix] and the team at Netflix whose unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action."
The documentary was a long-rumoured production that was confirmed on December 1 with the release of the teaser trailer. Meghan was previously working on the animated series Pearl, which has since been dropped by Netflix.
Pearl remains categorised as "in development" by IMDb, and Archewell also has a second documentary in post-production, Heart of Invictus, which follows a group of service members from around the world on their journey to compete at the Invictus Games The Hague in April this year. On January 10, Prince Harry's autobiography, Spare, will be released.
