MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have been dealt a blow to their £88m Netflix deal after the director reportedly quit over creative differences.
Oscar-nominated Garrett Bradley was originally hired for the bombshell series, which is set to tell Harry and Meghan’s “love story”.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex allegedly butted heads with the first director of their new Netflix doc
Garrett Bradley wanted to film inside the couple’s home which they were ‘uncomfortable’ with, it’s claimed
Having previously directed the critically acclaimed series Naomi Osaka, Garrett was approached by Netflix for Harry and Meghan.
Due to be a look-inside to the Sussexes’ life, Garrett allegedly wanted to film at the couple’s home but the three butted heads over it.
It is claimed the former actress and Harry fell out with Garrett over the vision of the project and refused to have it filmed inside their house, according to Page Six.
A TV insider said: “Garrett wanted Harry and Meghan to film at home and they were not comfortable doing that.
“There were a few sticky moments between them, and Garrett left the project.
“Harry and Meghan’s own production company captured as much footage as they could before Liz Garbus was hired.”
However another source claims Liz also clashed with the couple after they wanted to heavily edit the documentary – which is unwelcome as it needs translating into other languages.
Insiders say Harry and Meghan always avoided criticising the Queen but now want to make changes because it’s too critical of the new King and Queen Consort.
An insider claimed this week the Netflix show would hit our screens later this year with a set date yet to be released.
Despite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex trying to delay it until 2023 – putting them at loggerheads with Netflix chiefs.
Experts claim the family are bracing for discussions about the King and Queen Consort and Prince William.
A rep for the Sussexes was unavailable for comment. Bradley has not responded to a call for comment.
