Rumor has it that Meghan Markle and her hubby Prince Harry are in talks to film a Netflix documentary about their humanitarian efforts in South Africa.

The news comes on the heels of the recent announcement that Meghan has signed with William Morris Endeavor (WME), one of Hollywood’s premier talent agencies. There are also talks that the former princess is relaunching her blog, The Tig, and is in the process of writing a memoir detailing her life before and after her time as a royal.

Sources close to the Sussexes told Daily Express that “the documentary will feature the couple visiting communities in South Africa, where they will be shown helping build houses and focusing on humanitarian efforts,” the outlet reports. “It is reported that Meghan Markle will also bring awareness to safe birthing practices.”

The sources further dished that cameras will follow Meghan and Harry throughout the country where they will visit homes, hospitals and share medical education. Should the documentary be released, it will be their fourth known project with the streaming giant. In December, their docuseries – Harry & Meghan, set the internet ablaze as they went into detail about their lives as royals and their ongoing battle with the British press. They are also involved in Netflix’s Live to Lead series and Harry’s upcoming Heart of Invictus series about his Invictus Games.

Meghan hasn’t shied away about her time as a member of the royal family in the past.

“I wasn’t just being thrown to the wolves, I was being fed to the wolves,” the Duchess of Sussex disclosed in their documentary.

In an interview with TV journalist Anderson Cooper on 60 Minutes, the Duke of Sussex doubled down on his wife’s remarks.

“Every single time I’ve tried to do it privately there have been briefings and leakings and planting of stories against me and my wife,” he said. “You know, the family motto is never complain, never explain, but it’s just a motto.”

To which Cooper replied: “There’s a lot of complaining and a lot of explaining being done through leaks.”

He continued: “But the whole story is Buckingham Palace commenting. So when we’re being told for the last six years, ‘We can’t put a statement out to protect you.’ But you do it for other members of the family. It becomes… there becomes a point when silence is betrayal.”

The interview marks their first interview of a full-blown press tour aimed to promote Prince Harry’s new bookSpare, which is already topping bestsellers’ lists throughout the nation.

The book and recent interview came just weeks after a report revealed scathing details behind the harassment Meghan faced with her husband while she lived in the U.K.

Neil Basu, a former police chief in charge of royal protection at the Metropolitan police told Britain’s Channel 4 News Tuesday that they both faced “disgusting and very real” threats from extremists.

“If you’d seen the stuff that was written, and you were receiving it… you would feel under threat all of the time,” Basu said. “People have been prosecuted for those threats.”

The hateful comments were part of the reason why she and her husband stepped down from their royal duties and left the U.K. to move to the U.S., according to numerous reports.
