MEGHAN Markle’s new Netflix project has been revealed, and it is an animated series centred around a 12-year-old girl.
As part of the Sussexes' £112million deal, Meghan will be an executive producer on the show which has the working title 'Pearl' – and the name has a very special meaning.
It turns out that Meghan has named her main character after herself, as the name 'Meghan' means 'Pearl.'
Royal fans were quick to pick up on the connection, with one saying: “I wonder if this story is about Meghan’s childhood and will be an insight into her life.”
The show has been described as a family series that centres on the adventures of a girl who is inspired by a variety of influential women.
Meghan and Harry, the founders of Archewell Productions, announced the project yesterday.
The Prince will also act as the show's executive producer, alongside Elton John's husband David Furnish, Carolyn Soper, and Emmy Award-winning filmmakers Liz Garbus, Amanda Rynda and Dan Cogan.
Megahn said in a statement: “Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life’s daily challenges.
“I’m thrilled that Archewell Productions, partnered with the powerhouse platform of Netflix, and these incredible producers, will together bring you this new animated series, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history.
"David Furnish and I have been eager to bring this special series to light, and I am delighted we are able to announce it today.”

"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."
There is speculation that Pearl will have a similar feel to her recent children's book The Bench, which became a New York Times bestseller.
Meghan said how the book that was released on June 8 was a "love letter" to her husband and their first child, Archie.
