More on Harry & Meghan
It follows reports that the Sussexes’ docuseries has been pushed back until 2023.
A source told Deadline: “They’re rattled at Netflix, and they blinked first and decided to postpone the documentary.”
Meanwhile, makers of the Netflix show have claimed some of Harry’s comments in his memoir are at odds with those he has made on camera.
The Celeb Report previously revealed that Harry was trying to make late edits to his £35million book in the wake of the Queen’s death, fearing parts were “insensitive” and needed “refining”.
A source told the New York Post: “A lot in the show contradicted what Harry has written (in his book), so that was an issue.
“Then Harry and Meghan made significant requests to walk back content they themselves have provided for their own project.”
Harry and Meghan are said to discuss other royals — including King Charles, Camilla and Prince William — on their documentary, directed by top US documentary maker Liz Garbus.
Sources said late edits are unwelcome as it needs translating into other languages.
One explained: “Netflix needs a couple of months to do all of the formatting and dubbing, subtitling and audio — the stuff that enables it to launch.”
Meanwhile, The Celeb Report revealed Harry and Meghan have secretly planned a year of reconciliation with the Royal Family – but only after their controversial memoir and Netflix series have come out.
They have been called “arrogant” and “deluded” for thinking they can slip back into favour after their Oprah Winfrey racism claims and attack on the King’s parenting skills.
Insiders say Harry and Meghan always avoided criticising the Queen but now want to make changes to the memoir and series because both are too critical of the new King and Queen Consort.
Sources told The Celeb Report Harry and Meghan saw the book and docuseries as a way of attacking the royals one final time before trying to build bridges again.
A source told The Celeb Report: “Next year 2023 was to be their reconciliation year.”

It is thought the couple never looked to criticise the Queen out of respect for the monarch.
But if any of their so-called truth bombs are dropped on the new King and Queen they could thwart any reconciliation plans, it is said.
