It looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s troubles aren’t going away any time soon. With Sussex’s declining popularity both in the UK and US, Archwell’s fallout with the Spotify drug case against Prince Harry, the royal couple appear to be in trouble.
Now Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been accused of ripping off their latest Netflix idea. Here’s everything you need to know about this.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle accused of copying ideas
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently been accused of copying their latest Netflix idea from a 2015 BBC adaptation. The Sussexes came up with the idea of making a feminist prequel to Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. This idea is claimed to be similar to the BBC adaptation. There have been several adaptations already focusing on the character of Miss Havisham, the most recent being the 2023 BBC series starring Olivia Coleman.

Dr. Emily Bell, an editor of The Dickensian, told the MailOnline that re-enacting Miss Havisham’s life isn’t exactly feminist. She said: “Making her a ‘strong woman living in a patriarchal society’ makes it seem like we’re seeing a strong woman breaking, without what Dickens gives us: a sense that things can be made right, even if only in small ways and only for the next generation, at the end.”
Other Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ideas rejected by the streaming giant include a story similar to Emily in Paris, but starring a man. They also proposed a family-friendly television show about the gay characters, similar to Heartstoppers.
It was previously reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed a $100 million deal with Netflix in 2020. While the couple’s Harry & Meghan series is the most-watched documentary, they need to pitch more ideas to get full payoff.
