Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sparked backlash from social media users after they officially announced their first alleged multi-million dollar deal with the streaming giant Netflix.
Unhappy fans took to social media to comment on the new show, with a number unimpressed at their decision to use the Invictus Games as their first TV project.
One tweet read: "The tragedy is that Invictus shows just how much power Harry and Meghan had to change the world as royals. As private citizens, they're reduced to making documentaries about the things they did that genuinely made a difference. It's a bit sad really."
Another fumed: "Which he wouldn’t have been able to do without his Royal status."
A third added: "Harry and Meghan announce first Netflix series after quitting as royals. Pass the bucket!"
While a fourth pointed out: "Yes it's sad that money is their main goal."
However, one fan said: "Fantastic news indeed. The Sussexes ventures always reach so many and the results show Meghan and Harry's immense positive impact."
Another added: "Go Harry and Meghan, cheering for you."
It is believed that the famous couple signed an epic deal with the American streaming service last year, which was believed to be worth millions.
Their new docuseries Heart Of Invictus will follow athletes who are preparing for the event of a lifetime – the 2022 games.
Archwell Productions – the television arm owned by the Sussex's will oversee the documentary along with Prince Harry who will act as executive producer while also starring in the series.
In a statement to announce the new project, Prince Harry said: "Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve.
"This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year.
"As Archewell Productions’ first series with Netflix, in partnership with the Invictus Games Foundation, I couldn’t be more excited for the journey ahead or prouder of the Invictus community for continuously inspiring global healing, human potential and continued service."
