Rhiannon Mills claimed the Duke of Sussex has been frustrated at the lack of attention the charity organisations he has been working with have received compared to his personal life. Ms Mills added the deal between the Sussexes and Netflix will allow Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to focus on the charities and issues that really matter to them.

The royal expert told Sky News: “They are going to be focussing on a wide range of programmes but in essence they are going to be focussing on the charities and the issues that really matter to them.

“Certainly, in the past Harry has spoken very widely about how often he was frustrated that there was too much focus on his personal life opposed to the charity organisations he really wanted to bring the focus on to.

“There are already several projects which are already in development, that includes a nature documentary series and also an animated series that celebrates inspiring women.

“I also understand that it does not mean that the Duchess does not want to return to acting.”

In a statement the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said regarding the partnership: “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.

“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.”

Earlier in the year Meghan Markle was told to study David Attenborough’s approach to wildlife documentaries by a royal commentator.

In April Meghan Markle joined forces with Disney to produce a wildlife documentary in which she did voiceover for an elephant.

However, following some early reviews that stated Meghan sounded over-eager, Angela Mollard told the ROYALS podcast that the Duchess of Sussex should model her approach to voiceovers on wildlife documentaries to David Attenborough’s work. 

Ms Mollard said: “Meghan has voiced a documentary on elephants for Disney that goes to air on April 3.

“There have been some early reviews of it saying she sounds over eager to please and cheesy.

“She took on this gig because back in 2016 she actually saw the recording of some of the documentary in Africa.

“It is a cause close to her heart, but I can see that over-enthusiasm and desire to make a move into worthwhile projects, that she could overplay it.”

She continued: “The David Attenborough approach to wildlife documentaries I think is the best in the world.

“You know, it is lovely, restrained and quiet.

“I don’t think we have had Meghan’s voice coming over like that and apparently that is the case.”
