Meghan and Harry face 'make-or-break' point with Netflix as Queen's Jubilee looms, royal expert claims

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry face a “make-or-break” point with Netflix during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Meghan had her Pearl drama axed by Netflix when the streaming giant made a series of cutbacks after seeing a drop in subscriptions.

While the couple won’t be on the royal balcony for the celebrations to mark the Jubilee, they will travel with their children to the UK for the event.

And writing a comment piece in the New Zealand Herald, Ms Elser said she believes that the upcoming Jubilee is a big moment in the pair’s careers.

She said: “Rewind to September 2020 and it was Netflix who got to announce that they had secured the talents of the world's most famous unemployed, inexperienced TV producers.

“At the time, they were the hottest of hot celebrity property having done the wholly unthinkable and turned their back on royal life and lifelong tickets to the Chelsea Flower Show.

“At first, it seemed like a match made in heaven: Oodles of lovely money for the Sussexes; having actual members of the Royal Family on the books for Netflix.

“But nearly two years on and cracks are starting to show in this marriage with a new report claiming that the upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations in London could be a make-or-break inflection point.”

Ms Elser previously said she believes it's “astounding” that the couple are willing to “sign on as supporting guest stars” for the Jubilee following the balcony snub.

She added that a “more cynical mind” could think the Sussexes return to the UK is to “make nice just as the biggest royal PR event in a decade rolls around".

She continued: "This is Harry and Meghan being forced to accept a downgrade while the world watches on."
