Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are heading back to the U.K. in September “to visit with several charities close to their hearts,” and Daily Express reports that they’ll likely be bringing cameras with them as they continue to film their Netflix docuseries.
Royal commenter Natalie Oliveri tells the outlet that “It’s highly likely the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will bring a production crew with them to Germany and England in the coming weeks. After all, for this visit they have no restrictions imposed by the Royal Family about what they can and cannot film.”
“Netflix cameras were reportedly banned from covering Prince Harry and Meghan’s visit during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June,” Natalie says. “Crews were not given official accreditation for the four-day weekend and warned they would be ‘moved on’ if spotted near the royal events. Next month, though, is expected to be very different with no such rules being forced upon the Sussexes.”
Meghan and Harry will arrive in England on September 5 for the One Young World Summit, and then—after a quick trip to Germany for an Invictus Games event—are expected back on September 8 for the WellChild Awards in London. As of now they have “no plans” to see Prince William and Kate Middleton, despite staying just a five minute walk away from them in Windsor.
Oh, and if you’re wondering when Harry and Meghan’s docuseries is premiering, apparently Netflix is hoping to drop it around the same time as The Crown. A source recently told Page Six that “there is a lot to organize and a lot of things at play here” and that “Netflix wants to make sure they get in there and don’t get scooped” by Harry’s upcoming memoir.
“[Netflix executives] knew the book was coming out, which is why they wanted the series this year,” a source said. “They don’t want to hold off any longer.”
