Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan announce two new Netflix series, including a lifestyle show

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are coming back to Netflix with two new series.

The first show, curated by Meghan, is set to "celebrate the joys of cooking & gardening, entertaining, and friendship." The second program will take a behind-the-scenes look at the world of professional polo, a sport played by Harry for years, at the U.S. Open Polo Championship in Wellington, Florida.

Reps for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed to USA TODAY the news of the Netflix shows.

Meghan and Harry have produced several projects for the streaming service including the four-part docuseries "Harry & Meghan," which followed their exit from royal life and recounting their side of what happened behind the palace doors.

Duchess Meghan makes Instagram return amid Princess Kate photo editing incident


The news comes after Meghan soft-launched a lifestyle brand called American Riviera Orchard last month. She also returned to Instagram for the first time in four years with an Instagram account by the same name (@americanrivieraorchard), featuring nine posts laid out on its grid to say American Riviera Orchard Montecito.

Montecito, California is famously where Meghan and Harry purchased a home in the coastal enclave after exiting the Royal Family in early January 2020. Meghan is a California native, and the pair now raise their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, there.

According to trademark documents, American Riviera Orchard would apply to online and retail stores with a slew of lifestyle products ranging from jams and jellies to tablecloths and tableware.

A grainy Instagram story video for the brand featured music by the late jazz singer Nancy Wilson's "I Wish You Love" with vignettes of the duchess arranging flowers and cooking in the kitchen at what appears to be her home with Harry in Montecito.

In March, Meghan made a rare public appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas, to speak on a panel titled "Breaking Barriers, Shaping Narratives: How Women Lead On and Off the Screen" alongside former "Today" anchor Katie Couric and actress Brooke Shields.

Princess Kate's cancer diagnosis: Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan speak out

A week after Meghan introduced American Riviera Orchard, her sister-in-law Princess Kate announced she was battling cancer. The news came amid King Charles III's own battle with an undisclosed form of cancer.

"I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you personally for all the wonderful messages of support and for your understanding whilst I've been recovering from surgery," the Princess of Wales said in a video released by the palace. "It has been an incredibly tough couple of months for our entire family. But I've had a fantastic medical team who've taken great care of me, for which I'm so grateful."

Meghan and Harry released statement about their in-law's health diagnosis. "We wish health and healing for Kate and the family, and hope they are able to do so privately and in peace," the two said at the time.
