Women as the main axis of history
The Duchess of Sussex is a well-known activist and feminist. In fact, already in his first public speech after becoming engaged to the young son of Charles of England and Diana of Wales he said that women ‘do not need to find their voice, they already have it’. This project continues in that line and “focuses on the heroic adventure of a young woman as she learns to assume her power and finds inspiration in influential women throughout history”. She explained this herself in a statement shared by Archewel’s website in which she also writes the following: “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, in partnership with the powerful Netflix platform, and these incredible producers, are bringing you this new animated series together, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history.”

A new audiovisual challenge after its emmy nomination
We are facing the second project that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do with Netflix after signing their agreement with the platform since in April they reached the agreement to make Heart of Invictus, a documentary series that will tell the story and hard training of some competitors of the Invictus Games, of which Harry is creator and sponsor. Meghan’s new challenge is made public just days after learning that her name and that of Prince Harry are part of the list of Emmy nominees. In March they opened up for the first time about their departure from the British Royal Family with Oprah Winfrey, to whom they made shocking statements that were a real tsunami. The interview, which garnered high viewership figures (more than 17 million people watched it live), had such an impact that it has been nominated for an Emmy., the television awards for excellence in the United States, in the category Best Nonfiction Series or Special. To find out if they get the award or if they attend the ceremony, we will have to wait until September 19, when the 73rd edition of the Emmys will be held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
