The Duke of Sussex is also said to have joined the flying club in order to keep his license up to date. Prince Harry qualified as an Apache helicopter commander in 2013 when he served in the Army Air Corps regiment.

But the prince left the British Army shortly after graduating to focus on charity projects.A royal insider told The Sun: “He’s very proud of this license, he worked hard to get the base first, then the Apache.

“He’s unlikely to be recalled for military service in England, but he wants to save hours for his personal use, so he and Meghan can just go on expeditions if they want. “

It is not known if the Duke of Sussex has his own private helicopter.

But the source said there would be “a lot of wealthy benefactors” who would be more than willing to lend the prince their helicopters because they “would like the royal association”.

In 2014, Prince Harry revealed that he missed out on being an Apache helicopter pilot and would like to resume flying in the future.

The Duke was posted to Afghanistan for five months during the winter of 2012 to 2013.

He served as a high-level co-pilot, providing superior coverage for medical evacuations.

As parents of their one-year-old son, the couple are also planning to do “inspiring family programs” according to their statement released after the deal was announced.

The statement said, “We hope to cultivate and nurture talented, inspiring and creative voices that are able to promote greater empathy and understanding among people, and help them share their stories with the world.”

The Netflix deal could also include a documentary on Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana.

A source told the Mirror that the film will focus on the history and heritage of Diana’s family.

But the insider has expressed fears over the documentary widening the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William.

Since resigning from the royal family, the Duchess has already rocked her toes in the world of showbiz.

In April, she recounted the Disney Plus documentary “Elephant”.

The Duchess donated all the money made from the film to the Elephants Without Borders charity, which aims to protect animals from poaching.

Prince Harry also appeared in the new Netflix documentary “Rising Phoenix” about the Paralympic Games, released in late August.
