Is it all water under the bridge for the duchesses? If the recent rumours of a partnership are true, the answer just might be yes.
According to Us Weekly, Meghan Markle recently reached out to Kate Middleton about a possible Netflix collab. The project would be a deep-dive into Middleton’s life as a working royal and future queen. (And you just know the tabloids, who love to pit these two women against one another, are at a loss for words right now.)
“Meghan and Kate are actually getting along really well and have been in touch more often,” a source told Us Weekly. “Meghan has been talking to her about collaborating on a project for Netflix, a documentary that will spotlight Kate’s charity work and the huge impact she’s made with her philanthropy.”
The source adds, “Kate is very flattered, and it’s all very positive between them… [they are] closer than ever and working on their relationship for the sake of the family.”
The former Suits star and hubby Prince Harry signed a multi-year deal with Netflix in September 2020. Although the pair announced that they planned to create everything from movies and documentaries to children’s programming as another means to become financially independent of the royal family, the partnership caused a furor among the anti-Sussex camp (because of course it did).
Naysayers accused the couple of being disrespectful to the royal family. How so, you ask? Because Netflix was the streaming platform that produced and released The Crown, the Emmy-winning series which has the tendency to portray the House of Windsor in a not-so-favourable light.
But if Middleton agrees to Markle’s pitch and takes part in a Netflix production, where does that leave the tabloids and online trolls who incessantly belittle and malign the Sussexes? Although this is all rumour and conjecture at the moment, we can’t help but think that a Meghan-Kate collab might be one of the best things to happen to the beleaguered royal family who, in the last year alone, have been met with multiple accusations of racism and of protecting Prince Andrew, he of the Jeffrey Epstein ties.
Ironically, teaming up with Meghan and Harry might be just what the royal family needs in the midst of all their recent PR nightmares.
