Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle recently renewed their lease on Frogmore Cottage, and Netflix bosses hope they will film at their first family home during their upcoming UK for Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee.

The renewal was seen as an unexpected move, but it suggested that the couple might have plans for more frequent visits to the UK, reported Daily Mail.

As the Sussexes will be staying in the house during their time in the UK, Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank vacated the property ahead of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Harry and Meghan spent six months living in the property, which is in Windsor's Home Park estate. Then they gave up their royal duties and moved to California in 2020, reported Mirror. Harry and Meghan's kids Archie, three, and Lilibet, 11 months, are also expected to stay at Frogmore Cottage for the next month’s celebrations. It is not certain if Buckingham Palace aides will try to block Netflix cameras from filming the Sussexes there, according to Mirror.

Pressure is growing on the couple for ­exclusive royal footage, said a consultant for the US streaming giant with whom the Sussexes did a reported $100 million deal. A source claimed that the Sussexes, were “naive” to think that their program ideas would be “simply signed off." Netflix called off development of "Pearl," which was supposed to be an animated series with Meghan as an executive producer. There is a possible glitch in filming at Frogmore Cottage. It would need approval from the current residents -- Princess Eugenie and Brooksbank, who have 15-month-old son August Philip.

Non-working royals Harry and Meghan have been barred from the Buckingham Palace balcony for Trooping the Colour ceremony on June 2. The Jubilee is the "biggest gathering of UK royals in years and means that Harry and Meghan will be around everyone, according to a US consultant for Netflix. Netflix chiefs "want exclusive footage and their dream is to have insights in that royal world never seen before."

The source said that what goes on at Frogmore Cottage is "effectively private interactions between family," and that Frogmore is a "grey area in terms of whether it comes under full-time ­jurisdiction of the courtiers." According to the source, if everyone agrees to "filming scenes there, that would be exclusive, unique material never seen before."
