Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Are Making Netflix Adaptation of Bestseller ‘Meet Me at The Lake’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have bought the rights to Carley Fortune’s best-selling romance novel, ‘Meet Me at the Lake,’ and will work with streaming platform Netflix to bring the story to the small screen.

Carley said on Instagram on August 7, “I’m thrilled to confirm that I’m teaming up with Netflix and Archewell productions on the adaption of Meet Me at the Lake.”

The novel tells the story of Will and Fern, a couple who meet in their 30s, and deals with themes of childhood trauma that resemble Harry and Markle’s own lives.

The project falls under Meghan and Harry’s Netflix deal with their Archewell Productions company. In 2020, the couple signed a multi-year deal with Netflix back to create films and series across several genres, including scripted shows, docuseries, features, and children’s programming.

The news comes eight months after releasing their personal documentary series Harry & Meghan on Netflix last December.

British tabloid The Sun estimated Archewell Productions paid as much as $3.8 million for the film rights. The project will be their first book adaptation.
