Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle have signed a multi-year deal with Netflix.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will produce a range of content for the streaming service, such as documentaries, feature films, scripted shows and children's programming.

Harry and Meghan have signed a multi-year deal with Netflix.

The couple, who have resettled in California after stepping down as working members of the Royal Family six months ago, may appear in front of camera in some documentaries, though Meghan has previously made it clear she has no desire to resume her acting career.

In a statement shared with The New York Times, Harry, 35, and Meghan, 39, said: "Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.

"As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us."

They added that they aim to create content that 'resonates with them personally', and Netflix's 'unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action'.

The projects already in development include an animated series that celebrates inspiring women and an 'innovative nature docu-series', a spokesperson for the couple told ITV.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix's co-chief executive and chief content officer, said: "We're incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere."

Meghan has previously said she doesn't want to continue acting, but perhaps Harry might fancy a dabble?

Netflix declined to comment on how much the deal is worth, but it will certainly help the couple with the 'financial independence' they began pursuing earlier this year.

Announcing their decision to step back from the Royal Family in January, the couple said: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment.

"We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity."
