Unless someone steps in soon, the sports charity for wounded military is going to disappear.
Now that they have their bag, the alliterate one and her ginger play toy have left the charity in their rear window.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle pull the plug on glittering Invictus Games fundraiser for wounded soldiers due to be shown on Amazon after signing £112million deal with rivals Netflix
Harry and Meghan have cancelled a key fundraising event for the Invictus Games, after signing a new deal with streaming giant Netflix.
The glittering music and comedy show was set to be held in California in June 2021 and broadcast on Amazon, with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex planning to make speeches during the event.
The fundraiser, which organisers hoped would raise at least £1 million for the Invictus Games Foundation, would have likely taken place at The Hollywood Bowl.
Beyonce and Ed Sheeran were among the stars earmarked to perform at the event.
Officials at the foundation were reportedly ‘stunned’ after a lawyer for the Sussexes informed them they would not be going ahead with the event last week, shortly before the Netflix deal was announced.
According to a report in the Sunday Times, the lawyer cited a ‘conflict’ of plans with another streaming service.
A source involved in the planning of the event told the publication: ‘It’s very bad form and everyone at Invictus is gutted.
According to an Invictus spokesperson, the event was ‘shelved’ due to the Covid-19 pandemic and was a decision independent of the Netflix deal being signed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed a deal with Netflix, thought to be worth £112 million, earlier this week for their new yet-to-be-named production company to make documentaries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming. – Source
