Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have hired a famous director who has already been nominated for an Oscar, to work on their new Netflix show, according to the revelations of the tabloid PageSix dating from this Tuesday, June 28.
Since they took their independence from the royal family in 2020, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are free to carry out the projects they want and to sign their own contracts. This is how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex embarked on a partnership with Netflix to produce a docu-series focusing on their private lives, and titled At home with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. According to information disclosed by PageSix this Tuesday, June 28, the parents of Archie and Lilibet would have hired a director nominated several times for the Oscars : it is Liz Garbus, known for having recently made the documentary Britney Vs Spears, but also Excuse Me, I Love You on Ariana Grande, and the final season of the hit series The Handmaid’s Tale.
According to the American tabloid, Liz Garbus joined the couple for their trip to New York in September 2021, where the Duke and Duchess notably had met Bill de Blasio, the mayor of the city, as well as State Governor Kathy Hochul with whom they had traveled to the 9/11 memorial. Harry had then been spotted with a microphone tucked into his clothes. The former actress’ three-day trip to Suits, Prince and Liz Garbus also included a stay in a luxury apartment at the United Nations Plaza as well as a red carpet gala aboard the USS Intrepid in Manhattan, honoring war veterans. The small team also had lunch at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey.
The director was reportedly spotted hiding cameras and filming equipment under coats and bags with colleagues,to evade UN searches and obtain interesting passages of the couple’s travels. Liz Garbus’ film crew was also spotted with Meghan and Harry in an Airstream van while on their way to the Veterans Gala.
