Harry and Meghan have ‘realised dishing royal dirt does them no favours’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle might've realised "the dishing of royal dirt… doesn't actually necessarily do them any favours", according to a royal expert.

The comments come following rumours that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, along with streaming giant and their business partner Netflix, are planning to adapt hit novel Meet Me at the Lake for the screen.

The project would represent a marked change from some of the other projects Harry and Meghan have put out since leaving the Royal Family in 2020.

Last year their six-part docuseries – Harry & Meghan – was released on Netflix, with the pair detailing their troubled experiences within The Firm.

Then came Harry's memoir Spare, released at the start of this year, in which the Duke of Sussex recounted several quarrels he'd had with members of his own family throughout his life.

Newsweek's chief royal correspondent Jack Royston said he thought the prospect of adapting Carley Fortune's novel was "exciting" for the couple.

Discussing it on Newsweek's The Royal Report podcast, he also suggested the move might mean Harry and Meghan have moved on from focusing on their past life as royals.

He said: "It sounds like maybe they've heeded all the warnings and realised that the dishing of royal dirt, while it can draw in huge audiences, doesn't actually necessarily do them any favours in the long run.

"You know, actually they need to be reborn. They need to become something new and different to what they were when they were working royals."

Meet Me at the Lake touches on themes that Harry and Meghan have experienced in their own lives.

The fiction focuses on two people who become romantically involved in their 30s, much like the Sussexes. It also describes the trauma one character suffers after losing a parent in a car crash as a child.
