Prince Harry urged to drop Netflix deal as he’s accused of ‘exploiting Diana’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made headlines when they signed a multi-million pound Netflix deal, and a This Morning guest has fumed, calling it "tacky" and "exploits" his late mother.

The deal was rumoured to be worth some £100 million, and talkRADIO presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer called it "very tacky."

It comes as royal experts urge him to "tear up" the deal, after Netflix show The Crown's representation of his late mother, Diana.

Radio presenter Julia insisted: "The reason Prince Harry should get rid of his Netflix deal is because he blatantly used his royal title, and royal connection, to get it.

"He wouldn't have it any otherwise on any other basis, and it's all been very tacky anyway."

She added: "And let's face it, he's quite happy to carry on exploiting his royal name and indeed his mother because he's quite happy to do interviews talking about some of his most cherished childhood memories."

Phillip Schofield interrupted: "He signed a contract and they can say as much as they like that he should give it up but he's contracted to Netflix so you can bleat about it as much as you like but he's not going anywhere."

Julia argued: "No, he should drop the contract because it's tacky and using his royal privilege already, that's the only reason he's making money.

"It's not because he's a brilliant and talented documentary maker is it?"

Fellow guest Matthew Wright disagreed with Julia, and added: "Give him a chance! I think you've written off his career without even seeing it yet.

"He's entitled to make a living surely?"

The debate follows The Crown writer Jemima Khan quitting the series, after the portrayal of her friend, the late Princess Diana.

Jemima felt the portrayal of Diana "did not show enough compassion".

Royal biographer Angela Levin is another person who has been pleading for Harry to ‘find his voice’ over the way Diana was shown in the series.

She told the Sun: "Harry has remained absolutely silent about Netflix. He should tear the deal up and make a stand for his mother.

"What’s more important? Money or defending his mum? It’s astonishing he can’t find his voice on this."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
