A Netflix documentary about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been delayed due to backlash over the new series The Crown.
The long-awaited Duke and Duchess of Sussex show, which will tell their “love story”, has been postponed from November to 2023. The sun understands.
Netflix bosses are reportedly “shocked” by the ongoing storm surrounding the latest series of their hit drama The Crown.
Bosses have been accused of ‘making up’ scenes where Charles Jr tries to kick the Queen out.
The show has also been criticized for filming the final moments of Princess Diana, played by Elisabeth Debicki, before the 1997 car crash in Paris that killed her.
Insiders claim that as outrage rages, bosses at the streaming giant felt it would be inappropriate to air The Crown in November, followed immediately by Meghan and Harry’s show in December.
Instead, it is understood that the tell-all documentary series has been pushed back to next year.
A source told Deadline: “They’re excited about Netflix, they were the first to blink and they decided to shelve the documentary.”
Harry and Meghan previously asked for the hit show to be delayed, leading to a falling out with Netflix executives.
This happened amid widespread outrage over the latest series of The Crown.
Imaginary conversations between former Prime Minister John Major, the Queen and the then Prince of Wales will feature in a new series to be released on Netflix next month.
There are rumors that in one of the plots, Prince Charles asks the Prime Minister to support the Queen’s abdication.
Mr Major spoke of his fears that the “malicious and malicious fabrication” could unfairly damage the reputation of King Charles.
In a statement, a spokesman for Sir John said: “Sir John has not engaged in any way with The Crown.
“Discussions between the monarch and the prime minister are completely private and, for Sir John, will always remain so.”
And The Sun revealed how Netflix will show Prince Philip’s romance in The Crown – just weeks after the Queen’s funeral.
He will be featured in intimate scenes with close friend Penny Catchbull.
The Queen’s former spokesman Dickie Arbiter said: “This is cruel nonsense.”
