Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s sign they have ‘truly severed’ royal ties

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's ties with royalty have been "well and truly severed", a royal reporter has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who relocated to the US for more privacy, have recently signed a mega deal with Netflix to produce documentaries and shows with the video streaming service.

The deal, reported to be worth £112 million, has helped them to repay taxpayer's money for Frogmore Cottage.

And following the move, ITV Royal Rota podcast hosts Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson discussed how the couple's financial independence is sending a stark message.

Mr Ship told listeners: "I suppose what they're kind of trying to do is deny any justification for any media intrusion.

"They're not taking taxpayers' money, they're not working members of the royal family, they've set up their own business, they are working with Netflix and taking money from them.

"There is no justification to hover cameras over their house and try and take pictures of Archie, not that there ever was to be fair.

"A lot of the commentary around this was that this couldn't be a clearer sign that they are done, cut ties with their lives as working members of the Royal Family."

Ms Robinson added: "Lots of people are saying this is significant because there are no ties anymore, they're not coming back.

"Yes, the ties have been well and truly severed.

"So Harry and Meghan are now setting out as former royals with a very lucrative deal with a private media company, Netflix.

"They're living in a mansion which they are funding themselves in Los Angeles, technically Montecito."

She continued: "Basically the message to not just the UK press, but the international press and the American paparazzi to get out of here, stop taking pictures, stop prying into our private lives.

"Unless of course they want to publicise it in a very controlled way.

"Like the Netflix story last week which we think was given by their PR outfit straight to the New York Times."
