Prince Harry, Meghan Markle find celebs and companies ‘distancing’ from them

  • by


After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s podcast deal with Spotify was cancelled, new reports revealed that Netflix has only paid half of the payout of their deal.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a landmark deal worth a reported $150 million with the streaming giant in late 2020, but it’s understood they have only been paid half of that amount so far.

Royal commentator Kinsey Schofield shared her thoughts with Sky News Australia host Caroline Di Russo on the streaming giant withholding the remainder of their reported $121 million deal unless they “produce good ideas.”

She dubbed the Sussexes as one trick pony” after a source said that while Netflix was happy with the viewing figures for the six-part docuseries, Harry & Meghan, they are now eager for more, confident in the knowledge that they have a good format for success.

“The remainder of the deal relies on them producing those good ideas. The deal’s continually under review which is normal for ones of this magnitude,” the source told The Mirror.

Schofield shared, “They look like a one trick pony over at Netflix with their reality show, that’s the only successful title they over there so far.”

She also added, “Celebrities and companies are distancing themselves from the Sussexes because they do seem to be a flop, they do seem to bring a lot of drama wherever they go and overpromise and underdeliver.”

Schofield gave an example of how Dior “quickly distancing themselves” refuted claims that they were going to sign on Meghan, or how people’s reps quietly deny claims of “having dinner with their clients.”

She surmised that the couple is considered “toxic” in the States at “this point in time.”
