They said that Netflix's reach will help them "share impactful content that unlocks action".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have founded a yet-to-be-named production company, which has now signed a multiyear deal with Netflix to produce documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children's programming, only six months after their departure from The House of Windsor, a New York Times report reveals. However, former Suits star Meghan is unlikely to make a return to acting in front of the camera.

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

Under the deal, whose value was not disclosed, the couple will produce films and series ranging from children's shows to scripted content, the streaming platform said on Wednesday. It's unknown how much the couple will be paid, and Netflix declined to comment to the NYT. Several projects are already in development, including a nature docuseries, and a series focused on inspiring women.

The couple's ambitions to produce in Hollywood had always been rumored, with reports of meetings taking place in recent weeks with Disney, Apple and NBCUniversal.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle plant flowers and forget-me-nots during a visit to the Assistance League Los Angeles' Preschool Learning Center in Los Angeles. Variety reported earlier this month that they had met with Comcast Corp's NBCUniversal.

Netflix chief Ted Sarandos said he was "incredibly proud" the royal couple had made the company "their creative home". Harry appears in the Paralympic Games doc Rising Phoenix, which hit Netflix last week. Harry and Meghan are expected to speak together and individually on issues such as racial justice, gender equity, the environment, and mental health. It triggered the most serious crisis for the British royal family since the death of Harry's mother, Princess Diana, in a auto crash in 1997. The couple also agreed to give up public funding - setting off a tabloid guessing game about how they would finance their lifestyle, including paying for security. The couple shut down their previous philanthropic endeavor, SussexRoyal, in March after they agreed to stop using the term "royal" for commercial or charitable activities.
