Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are sitting on a goldmine of intimate home footage captured within palace walls which would be worth millions to Netflix bosses, it has been claimed.

The royal runaways recorded hours of clips in the midst of their Megxit split which would earn them a fortune if they were to sell it to the US streaming service, insiders say.

Their representatives are reported to have pitched the footage during negotiations with Netflix about their upcoming shows, the Daily Mail reports.

They have already signed a pocket-lining £80m deal with the broadcasting giant to record a spree of programmes, but have denied they will take part in a reality show.

Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, are known to be developing an "innovative nature docuseries" and an animated show about "inspiring women" as part of the agreement.

They have also been linked with environmental programmes.

And like many new parents, the pair have recorded hours of videos and photos of son Archie’s birth and first few months living as a royal.

It is thought that footage would be a huge hit with UK and US viewers who would adore gaining an insight into the most special moments of their lives. But they have denied they are filming a Kardashians style fly-on-the-wall series at the moment.

Their spokesman said: "The Duke and Duchess are not taking part in any reality shows."

Harry and Meghan faced a backlash as reports of the rumoured series surfaced.

Former Liberal Democrat MP Norman Baker, author of What The Royal Family Don't Want You To Know, accused the Duke of “exploiting” his family.

He told ITV’s Good Morning Britain yesterday: "Let's be frank about this, Netflix wouldn't be offering a huge deal to Harry because of his interesting views.

"They're offering him the deal because of his connections with the r oyal family, which he is therefore exploiting.

"If he wants to run away and do Netflix documentaries, that's fine, do it as a private individual."

Any clips capturing their escape would become invaluable from a historical perspective, insiders say.

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could face 'permanent exile' from the Queen

But the Duke appeared to test Her Majesty's patience recently after the couple spoke out on the US election – breaking a royal taboo of meddling in politics.

The r oyals are now reportedly considering a “permanent exile” for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, sources have claimed.

Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex encouraged Americans to vote in a video message.

Harry encouraged the country to “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity” – widely received as a swipe at US President Donald Trump.

Buckingham Palace afterwards said the comments were made “in a personal capacity”.

However, The Queen has been left embarrassed by her grandson’s remarks, The Times reports.

One palace source said: “Harry has wandered into a minefield and is in danger of dragging the royal family into it.”

The pair were forced to abandon their Sussex Royal project because Her Majesty banned them from using a business or charity name with the word ‘royal’ in it.

The Duke and his wife have now founded their own production company in America and are hiring hundreds of staff. It comes as they stepped down as working royals with the intention of becoming financially independent.

Daily Star Online has approached Meghan and Harry's representatives for a response.
