The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced this on Wednesday.

“Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” said Prince Harry and wife Meghan.

“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us,” they continued.

Netflix chief Ted Sarandos said he was “incredibly proud” the royal couple had made the company “their creative home”.

The multi-year deal will encompass documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming.

It comes six months on from the couple stepping down from royal life and moving to California to live away from the media spotlight.

“Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple has allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection,” said the couple in a statement.

“Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.

“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.”

The pair said they were “pleased to work with Netflix, saying its “unprecedented reach” would “help us share impactful content that unlocks action”.

Sarandos said Netflix was “excited about telling stories” with the couple “that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere”.

According to Deadline, projects already in development include “an innovative nature docu-series and an animated series that celebrates inspiring women”.

The royal couple will make their shows for Netflix under the banner of an as-yet-unnamed production company.

The Duke of Sussex can currently be seen on the streaming service in Rising Phoenix, a documentary about the Paralympic Games.

Meghan previously partnered with Disney to narrate Elephant, a documentary about the species for its Disneynature outlet.
