An Oscar-nominated director was hired to direct Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s still-to-air Netflix series before they had a falling out and she left, it has been claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex felt Garrett Bradley, director of the Netflix series about tennis prodigy Naomi Osaka, was a good option to dictate their show, before a clash over the direction ensued.

The docuseries based on the couple is reportedly set to air this year, however some have disputed this.

An insider told the New York Post: “Garrett wanted Harry and Meghan to film at home and they were not comfortable doing that.

“There were a few sticky moments between them, and Garrett left the project.

“Harry and Meghan’s own production company captured as much footage as they could before Liz Garbus was hired.”

Garbus was also due to work on Pearl, a series sanctioned by the Duchess, before Netflix opted to scrap the proposal.

The documentarian also helmed the last season of The Handmaid’s Tale, an achievement which resulted in a 2021 Emmy nomination.

Mixed reports in the US have left the status of the documentary unclear.

Harry and Meghan’s Netflix documentary is reportedly expected to air within weeks, despite efforts from the pair to push it back to 2023.

Mixed reports in the US have left the status of the documentary unclear, with Deadline insisting the show will be delayed after bosses “blinked first” in a dispute with the couple.

Page Six, however, report there will be no postponement and “the show will go on” despite the best efforts of the couple.

An insider told them: “As far as I am aware, the docuseries is still going ahead later this year.”

The show is expected to cause turmoil for the Royal Family in the same year as the death of Queen Elizabeth II, resulting in fresh criticism for the couple.

Harry also has his memoir, ‘Spare’ set to be released.

Royal experts have stated that the two projects have quashed any chances of a reconciliation with King Charles or Prince William.
