“And they actually have, like, a bunch of development, they have a movie in development, a (scripted) series that they’re working on," the executive continued. "So all very early development, with a movie, a TV show and a couple of unscripted shows. But yeah, the movie’s great.”

In 2023, Meghan and Harry traveled to New York for the Archewell Parents' Summit and met with adults who lost their loved ones due to online abuse.

"This is an issue that transcends division and party lines, as we saw today at the Senate hearing. The best parenting in the world cannot keep children safe from these platforms," they noted. "As one of the fathers shared with us: ‘If love could have saved them, all of our children would still be here.'"

Since leaving the U.K., the Sussexes have been criticized for their rising political influence, but they made sure to note that their interest isn't rooted in party agendas.

"Today, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee held a bi-partisan hearing on online child safety in front of a packed room including dozens of parents whose children have suffered or died due to online harms," they announced.

"The Archewell Foundation has been working with many of these families to provide a support network for parents dealing with grief or who have children managing serious mental health conditions as a result of their exposure to harmful online content," they concluded.

During their World Mental Health Day event, Meghan was open about her fears as a parent in the modern age.

“A year ago we met some of the families, and at the time, it was impossible not to be in tears hearing their stories because it’s just that devastating,” Meghan said about the event's panelists.

“Being a mom is the most important thing in my entire life — outside, of course, being a wife to this one,” she confessed. “But I will say I feel fortunate that our children are at an age, again quite young, so this isn’t in our immediate future, but I also feel frightened at how it’s continuing to change and this will be in front of us."

Bajaria was quoted by The Telegraph.
