Harry and Meghan’s Netflix series ‘contradicts’ Duke’s tell-all memoir, source claims
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have contradicted themselves when comparing Harry's upcoming memoir with the couple's multi-million pound Netflix show, a source has claimed.
Their hotly-anticipated docuseries, which is said to tell the "love story" between Harry, 38, and Meghan, 41, is said to have left some producers "confused during filming"
According to PageSix, some of the couples statements in the docuseries are said to "contradict" those of the one's made in Harry's yet-to-be-released book.
“A lot in the show contradicted what Harry has written, so that was an issue,” a senior Netflix source revealed.
“Then Harry and Meghan made significant requests [to filmmakers] to walk back content they themselves have provided, for their own project,” the source added. "A lot in the show contradicted what Harry has written, so that was an issue.:
It comes after reports that Harry has made a desperate bid to edit much of the book, in the wake of his grandmother's death and the outpouring of public grief, amidst concerns that it would be deemed insensitive.
The book's publisher Penguin Random House is said to have paid Prince Harry around £20million for the memoir, so they're sure to want to secure the juiciest details.
Royal author Jeffrey Archer, who was friends with the late Princess Diana, said: "They paid him a lot of money — something like £20 million. You want to calm it down if you’re paid £20 million?"
Royal biographer, Tom Bower likened the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's decision to sign their big-money deals with Netflix and Penguin Publishing to "signing a deal with the devil".
He said: "They need the money and they need it now more than ever.
"Because they've got no other source of income. So I think they're just stuck with the devil now.
"They're tied to Netflix, they're tied to their book. And all the criticism they're going to take means nothing because that's the only way they can earn their money."
Harry and Meghan are also said to be having "second thoughts" on the "tone" of their highly-anticipated Netflix documentary, in the wake of the Queen’s death.
According to Page Six, the couple are said to want to make “extensive edits” to footage already shot, leaving the entire production in fear of being “shelved indefinitely.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to have attempted to remove or downplay many of the comments made about King Charles, Queen Consort Camilla, Prince William, and his wife Kate, the new Princess of Wales.
Harry and Meghan quietly returned to the US recently, after spending an extended break in the UK following the death of Harry's grandmother, the Queen, on September 8th.
