The Queen is believed to have put in place a ‘ring of steel’ to prevent any attempts by her grandson Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle to include the monarch in the Netflix documentary. Royal expert Russell Myers believes Buckingham Palace aides have put in place a strict cordon around the Queen and advised Meghan and Harry not to even think about using the monarch as a means of procuring royal content for Netflix.
Mr Myers told US Today: “There is absolutely a ring of steel around the Queen when it comes to her advisers.
“I mean, they would definitely advise Harry and Megan not to even think about it for a second, but who knows what they’ll do?
“They certainly would have been advised not to talk to Oprah Winfrey not to talk to Gayle King not to talk to American reporters last week and yet they continue to do so.
“I mean, it makes you wonder how much more the family can handle and I’m sure Prince William has his head in his hands as Prince Charles every time they appear on TV.”
Harry and Meghan signed a lucrative deal with Netflix in September 2020 to produce documentary content for the streaming giant.
The couple recently had their Netflix project titled ‘Pearl’ scrapped as the company scrambled to save money due to falling subscriber numbers.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams believes the couple may now be under pressure to “produce more” royal content quickly.
He told Express.co.uk: “There will clearly be pressure on Harry and Meghan to produce more and probably faster.”
Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan will not join other senior royals as they wave to the crowd from the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Trooping of the Color ceremony at the start of the celebrations.
The Queen has decided that neither her son Prince Andrew nor her grandson Prince Harry will be there this time around, with attendance restricted to working royals only.
“After careful consideration, The Queen has decided that the traditional Balcony Trooping the Color appearance this year will be limited to Her Majesty and members of the Royal Family who are currently carrying out official public duties on behalf of The Queen,” a statement said. palace spokesman.
Prince Harry has stepped back from his royal duties after moving with his American wife Meghan to Los Angeles two years ago.
