Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly recount their experience of royal life for a new Netflix movie.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be in talks with Netflix to produce a new movie on their lives with a focus on their experience of being a royal couple. The pair have previously worked with the streaming giant for a documentary on their relationship with the royal family. 

The possible film was reportedly inspired after Netflix revealed it's creating a feature film about Prince Andrew's infamous BBC interview with journalist Emily Maitlis. The Netflix film - titled Scoop - will star Rufus Sewell as the Duke of York and Gillian Anderson as Emily while Billie Piper and Keeley Hawes are also part of the cast.

A source says Harry and Meghan will "wait and see" what the reception to this new film is like first but think they have a "big screen story to tell about what happened in the Palace". A source told Closer Magazine: “There are a lot of nuances from their story that they feel are still missing after the documentary and Harry's book. There is no doubt they would get a handsome payday for it, which is hugely tempting. 

“Meghan is really pushing for it to happen, while Harry wants to tread more carefully - but they are entertaining the idea and their team are talking about the kind of money they would want for the rights to their story."

It comes after the Duke and Duchess claimed to have been involved in a two hour, high speed car chase with paparazzi in New York last week. A spokesman for Prince Harry described the incident as “near catastrophic”.
