Prince Harry is Planning Trip to Africa Without Meghan to Film New Netflix Documentary: Reports

Prince Harry is understood to be planning a trip to Africa without Meghan Markle to film a new Netflix documentary.

The Duke of Sussex is said to be set to travel to Africa to make the solo film, which is believed to be inspired by his mother, reports The Sun.

Princess Diana toured the continent shortly before her death as part of a campaign to raise awareness about the number of unrecovered landmines there.

It is not yet known what the documentary will be about, but the Prince is expected to follow in her footsteps, Page Six reports.

However, the plans have apparently been put on hold due to the ongoing writer’s strike in the US.

Harry has had a long relationship with Africa, even taking his now-wife Meghan to Botswana for a camping trip as one of their early dates.

The Duke has established a charity, Sentebale, to help African orphans, along with Prince Seeiso from Lesotho.

A source told the outlet: “Obviously, Harry has a lot of roots in Africa and he feels at home there.”

In 2017, the Prince himself said: “This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world.

“I wish I could spend more time in Africa.”

Last week the couple were told to come up with more must-watch shows for Netflix if they want to be paid $75 million in outstanding fees, it is claimed.

The couple’s six-part soul-baring series was the streaming giant’s most-viewed documentary.

But the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who finally cleared out of Windsor’s Frogmore Cottage this week – believed to have been paid only half of their reported $150 million contract.

And they will get the rest only if they produce content of real interest, an industry source has revealed.

The source said the US giant is happy with the viewing figures for the couple’s Harry & Meghan series.

It proves they can be box-office hits with the right format.

If no suitable follow-ups can be agreed, the outstanding cash will not be handed over, it is claimed.

But the couple will not face a public split similar to their one with Spotify.

Their Archewell company’s $29 million deal with the platform was ended by mutual agreement after Meghan, 41, produced only 13 broadcasts in two-and-a half years.

The industry source said of the Netflix arrangement: “There’s no question of a headline-grabbing, public parting of the way.

“Netflix was pleased to sign Harry and Meghan and is looking for some great ideas going forward.

“But the remainder of the deal relies on them producing those good ideas. The deal’s continually under review which is normal for ones of this magnitude.”

Last week, The Sun quoted a Netflix insider claiming “the lemon has been fully squeezed”.

Harry’s series Heart of Invictus about the Olympic-style games he started for wounded ex-service competitors is due to air in August.

But Meghan’s animated series Pearl, about a girl inspired by historical female figures, was dropped.

Netflix bosses are awaiting the final series of royal drama The Crown featuring the early stages of William and Kate’s relationship.

Respected news agency Bloomberg reported Prince Harry, 38, had wanted to interview Russian president Vladimir Putin and former US president Donald Trump for Spotify.
