Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have entered discussions with Netflix about appearing in a new documentary, according to sources close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The documentary will feature the couple visiting communities in South Africa where they will be shown helping build houses and focusing on humanitarian efforts.
It is reported that Meghan Markle will also bring awareness to safe birthing practices.
The production will be a collaboration between Netflix and the couple’s Archewell Foundation.
The Sunday Mirror reported that cameras will follow the Sussexes as they visit compounds and share medical education.
This potential project comes after the couple released their $100million docuseries Harry & Meghan on the streaming platform last December.
According to the Sunday Mirror, Meghan is particularly interested in sharing information about safe childbirth practices with the women they meet during their reported project in South Africa.
This would be the couple’s third project with Netflix, following their six-part docuseries in December 2022 and their ‘Live to Lead’ series, which aired on New Year’s Eve in 2022.
The newspaper’s source suggests that this project will mark the couple’s return to South Africa, where they previously visited during their royal tour in 2019.
During their previous visit, the couple spent time in townships around Cape Town and even danced with locals.

Meghan has also previously spoken about a frightening incident that occurred during the tour when a heater in Prince Archie’s nursery caught fire.
She told her Archetypes Spotify podcast: “In that amount of time that [the nanny] went downstairs, the heater in the nursery caught on fire. There was no smoke detector.
“Someone happened to just smell smoke down the hallway, went in, fire extinguished. He was supposed to be sleeping in there.”
Meghan proceeded to share how she experienced stress and fear as she had to continue with her royal duties despite the incident that occurred.
She said: “There was this moment where I’m standing on a tree stump and I’m giving this speech to women and girls, and we finish the engagement, we get in the car and they say there’s been a fire at the residence. What? There’s been a fire in the baby’s room.
“As a mother, you go, ‘Oh, my God, what?’ Everyone’s in tears, everyone’s shaken. And what do we have to do? Go out and do another official engagement.
“I said, ‘this doesn’t make any sense. Can you just tell people what happened?’ And I think the focus ends up being on how it looks instead of how it feels.
“And part of the humanising and the breaking through of these labels and these archetypes and these boxes that we’re put into is having some understanding on the human moments behind the scenes that people might not have any awareness of and to give each other a break. Because we did– we had to leave our baby.”
