From the Buckhingham Palace to Netflix.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have reportedly signed a multi-year deal at Netflix, according to The New York Times.

The outlet notes that Meghan Markle, 39, and Harry, 35, have started a production company that will create scripted and unscripted TV series, documentaries, feature films and kids programming.

"Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection," the Duke and Duchess of Susse said in a statement on Tuesday.

"Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope. As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens. We are pleased to work with Ted [Sarantos] and the team at Netflix whose unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action."

The former “Suits” actress and Prince Harry already have a few projects in development including a nature documentary series and an animated series that celebrates women.

"Harry and Meghan have inspired millions of people all around the world with their authenticity, optimism and leadership," said Sarandos, co-CEO and chief content officer at Netflix.

He added: “We're incredibly proud they have chosen Netflix as their creative home — and are excited about telling stories with them that can help build resilience and increase understanding for audiences everywhere."

The couple reportedly plan to create programming surrounding issues tackled by their latest nonprofit foundation, Archewell.

The news comes nearly eights months after the senior members announced that they would be stepping back from royal duties. They recently moved to Los Angeles for a fresh start.
