"Our focus will be on creating content that informs and gives hope," Meghan and Harry told the Times, adding, "as new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us."

"The timing is still being discussed. Things are up in the air," said one producer while revealing that there is an ongoing disaccord regarding the drop date. While the Duke and Duchess and their production house, Archewell Production, wants the series to be released in 2023, Netflix would rather want it on screen by the end of the year.

The animated series unveiled the inspiring journey of a 12-year-old girl. "Like many girls her age, our heroine Pearl is on a journey of self-discovery as she tries to overcome life's daily challenges," the Duchess said at the time.
