Netflix is already showing interest in landing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for future work.
“Who wouldn’t be interested?” the streaming service’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, responded when asked about potential collaborations with the couple, who are now free from constraints of royal duties, according to The Guardian.
“Yes, for sure,” Sarandos said of his desire to work with “Suits” TV star Markle and her husband, even after the scandal of Megxit.
Netflix’s interest in working with the renegade royals comes as the couple appeared to have been shamelessly pushing for work even before their stunning announcement that they were quitting the Palace.
Harry reportedly buttonholed director Jon Favreau at London’s “Lion King” premiere and was caught on camera saying, “If anyone needs any extra voiceover work … ”
“That’s really why we’re here — it’s the pitch!” his wife then joked, according to the reports.
It was the same event where Harry was also caught shmoozing Disney CEO Bob Iger on the red carpet, making sure he knew the Duchess of Sussex was eager for work.
The Times of London then revealed that Meghan had signed a voiceover deal with The Walt Disney Company for work on an undisclosed project.
In lieu of a direct payment, Disney reportedly made a donation to one of the Sussexes’ pet projects, Elephants Without Borders, a wildlife charity, the paper said.
Netflix would give the Sussexes a platform of 158 million paid subscribers — and put them side by side with its successful show “The Crown,” chronicling the life of Queen Elizabeth, MarketWatch noted.
