After Netflix decided to axe "Pearl," Meghan Markle has been left with "nothing," said an expert.

The show, created by the Duchess of Sussex, followed the story of a 12-year-old girl exploring famous women in history. It was set to be the Netflix's first animated series. But it recently was canned by Netflix due to cutbacks at the streaming service. One critic said that the "disaster" proves Meghan and Prince Harry "are only good at moaning about the Royal Family," reported The Sun.

After the show was canceled, commentator Rafe Heydel-Mankoo said, “Well it’s a complete disaster for Harry and Meghan." The commentator shared that Netflix is having big problems with a "dip in subscriber numbers, falling revenues, plummeting share prices and having spent too much on other problems, and is cutting back – particularly on animated series."

He noted that while Harry’s Invictus documentary is still on, there is "nothing" for Meghan to show for it and "it’s really calling into question whether they can walk the walk." He said that the couple signed up to Spotify, but have only produced one podcast till now. He added that the Netflix deal has been in place for more than a year now and "there’s very little to show for it." He noted that it looks as if, "apart from moaning about the royals there’s not much that they’re able to do.”

According to a royal expert, Netflix's decision to ditch "Pearl" shows that Meghan's star power is waning, reported Daily Mail. The streaming giant is working out that the royal pair "are not the investment they thought they were," said Andrew Pierce, consultant editor of the Daily Mail. He noted that the contract "is not even two years old and they've realized already that her celebrity status is fading" in America.

He said that "Pearl" was very important to Meghan, who's the "great woke warrior Queen." But the show being canceled, is "a real blow to her prestige and ego," he added.

Daily Mail's diary editor Richard Eden said that the show's cancellation could also mean bad news for the rest of the royals. He said that what's so significant and worrying is that the "only projects that will get the green light from Netflix now will be very personal ones about the Royal Family." He added, "That puts them in an awkward position because I don't think they wanted to do that and certainly it will make people nervous back at Buckingham Palace."
