The series, set to document their “love story”, will come amid a backlash over the new series of The Crown.

The Netflix series has garnered criticism as a result of its depictions of royal events, as well as the fact that its release came in close proximity of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

It is now reported that Meghan and Harry’s highly-anticipated show will not be postponed, with a release date in December expected.

An insider told Page Six: “As far as I’m aware, the docuseries is still going ahead later this year.”

A source previously told Deadline that the couple are “rattled” at the streaming service, hence their “decision to postpone”.

Another source has spoken about issues arising from Harry’s memoir, with it “contradicting” some of the stories told in the show.

The New York Post was told by an insider: “A lot in the show contradicted what Harry has written (in his book), so that was an issue.

“Then Harry and Meghan made significant requests to walk back content they themselves have provided for their own project.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to discuss other royals, such as King Charles, Camilla and Prince William in the series, that is directed by Liz Garbus.
