Their decision to step down as senior members of the royal family is said to have left the Queen extremely upset.
Now, the linkage deal with the streaming giant will put their departure even more under the microscope, it is claimed.
In March, key members of the royal household will meet to review the terms of the deal canceled in January.
The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William will assess the situation more than a year after the shock was announced.
Their deal with Netflix is believed to be worth £ 112million.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk he expects the contract to make things even more difficult for the couple.
He told the publication: “Harry and Meghan will be keen to launch their non-profit Archewell foundation as soon as the pandemic allows.
“They are now financially independent, as they intended to be and will be involved in planning their deal with Netflix.
“There will be inquiries about the work they plan to do, especially given the intentionally malicious portrayal Netflix’s The Crown painted of the royal family in season four. ”
He added: “The previous episodes were very different.
“This could be a problematic area although Harry and Meghan have no connection with The Crown, which started in 2016.”
Speaking about the review, a palace source said earlier this year: “The Royal Family and the Sussexes have agreed to an initial 12-month review to make sure the arrangement works for all parties. ”
According to other insiders, the couple did not consult relatives before making the decision that will change their life.
This, it is claimed, caused a great deal of anger behind the palace walls.
Harry’s grandmother, the Queen, has released two official statements on the controversial issue, saying that while she is disappointed with their decision, she understands their desire for more privacy.
After Meghan and Harry’s initial announcement, which they posted on Instagram rather than through official channels, the Queen released a short but firm statement.
It read: “Discussions with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage.
“We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complex issues that will take time to resolve. ”
