As reported The Guardian, i Dukes of Sussex have also signed a $ 100 million contract with Netflix. Among other things, the project includes the release of the documentary Heart of Invictus which will show the preparation of the athletes participating in the sporting event of the same name and will be produced by Archewell Productions, a company launched by the couple.

In the Netherlands, the couple first took part in the opening night of the Games, which took place on Saturday 16 April. Speaking in front of an audience of people also made up of the Dutch royal family and the premier, Mark Rutte, both Meghan and Harry expressed their closeness to the Ukrainians. “My husband and I know it took a long time to get here, both physically and on a motive level. Especially for the Ukrainian team. We are all with you,” said the Duchess.
“You told me you would come not only to show your strength, but also to tell your truth, the truth, what is happening in your country,” said Harry. “You know we are by your side. The world is on your side but you deserve even more”, he added (in the photo the prince with some athletes, including a Ukrainian)
Before flying to the Netherlands, the couple also allegedly met the Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles at Windsor Castle. The meeting would have been informal, but not much else is known. When Harry and Meghan announced that they wanted to become more independent, the sovereign had issued a statement in which she made it known that she supported this need. In these two years, however, the relations between the royal family and the two dukes would not have been idyllic
