Harry and Meghan blasted for not sticking up for Diana with Netflix

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been blasted for sticking with their £100m Netflix deal despite their "disrespectful" portrayal of his mother, Princess Diana.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are working on a number of projects that are believed to include a fly-on-the-wall documentary about their lives with the streamer in September 2020.

However, their deal has caused a stir with royal sources and fans alike after Diana's close confidante, Jemima Khan, 47, stormed out of her advisory role on the show as she claims the Princess of Wales "was not being told as respectfully or compassionately".

Netflix continues to make money from Diana by streaming "The Crown" and the show’s forthcoming fifth season will depict her toughest days, including her Panorama interview amid the breakdown of her marriage to Prince Charles.

The subscription service is also streaming "Diana: The Musical".

Now a source who has worked with Netflix has slammed the couple saying their "silence is deafening".

They added: "It might be easier to explain their position, had we seen the fruits of their labour on Netflix, but to date, nothing has been released, which is leaving some raised eyebrows in the industry as to what Netflix is exactly getting out of their investment."

When asked how Harry’s brother, Prince William, reacted to his mother’s life being recreated, a family source told Page 6: "William has always understood the ongoing interest in his mother.

"What is never going to be acceptable is the new low that has been reached, the level of exploitation, distracting from the world’s appropriate and respectful legacy," the source added.

"To turn tragedy into disrespectful reverie is never going to be OK."

Angela Levin, author of Harry: A Biography of a Prince, previously said: "Harry has remained absolutely silent about Netflix.

"He should tear the deal up and make a stand for his mother.

"What’s more important? Money or defending his mum? It’s astonishing he can’t find his voice on this."
