“Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” the couple said in a statement to the outlet. “As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.”
The royal couple could appear in documentaries, but Markle has made it clear she does not plan to return to acting, the Times reported. The amount to be paid to the couple has not been disclosed.

“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,” Netflix’s Co-chief Executive and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement.
Now they’re living in Los Angeles and creating a production company. What a wild turn. We’ll have to see where it goes.
