While the Royal Family bids to restore its image, Meghan and Harry have carried on with their lives. The Prince has been given two top jobs in the US’ technology hub of Silicon Valley, though Meghan’s new ventures are less clear. Now, the pair have announced the first show they plan to make as part of their multi-million deal with Netflix.
A behind-the-scenes story of the Invictus Games – Heart off Invictus – will invite viewers to follow the journeys of individual competitors.
While Harry has returned his military appointments and royal patronages to the Queen, he last month announced that he would remain a private patron of the event he founded in 2014.
He was recently forced to relinquish his cherished roles as a result of “Megxit”, after he and Meghan departed for North America last year.
Many have attempted to pinpoint the moment when things changed irreversibly between the couple and the rest of the Firm.
Some look back to their royal tour of southern Africa in 2019 as the beginning of the end.
While there, many of their troubles seemed to disappear.
Speaking to Channel 5’s documentary, ‘Meghan & Harry: Two Troubled Years’, former royal press officer Dickie Arbiter noted: “They got very positive press in southern Africa: that went down incredibly well, they couldn’t have done it had they written the script themselves, it couldn’t have been better.”
Yet, things soon took a turn for the worse.

As royal author Penny Junor said: “They were the golden couple, sprinkling fairy dust all over southern Africa.
“And then at the end of that tour they completely shot themselves in the foot.”
The tour led to the ITV documentary where they talked about being deeply unhappy as senior members of the Royal Family.
Richard Fitzwilliams, speaking during the programme, described the interview as having, “hit the world like something of a thunderbolt”.

In the revealing ITV documentary, Meghan and Harry expressed their true feelings and the problems bubbling under the surface.
Harry made the famous remarks that he and his brother, Prince William, were “on different paths”.
Then, Meghan thanked ITV’s reporter Tom Bradby for asking about her mental health, claiming: “Not many people have asked if I’m ok.”
She continued: “It’s not enough to just survive something, that’s not the point of life.
“You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy.
“I think I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip.”
Following their trip, the couple took a six-week break to recuperate.
They jetted off to North America with their son Archie and spent the Thanksgiving and Christmas period in Canada.
A month later, in January 2020, they announced their departure from the Royal Family.
Meanwhile, in a statement responding to their tell-all Oprah Winfrey interview last month, Buckingham Palace said the family was “saddened” to hear of Meghan and Harry’s struggles.
It read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning.
“Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.
“Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”
