Prince Harry has promoted a new film about Afghanistan for Netflix

Prince Harry has been praised by Netflix documentarians for his “love and devotion” to Afghanistan as he promoted their new film on a streaming service with which he has a £122million deal.

The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex, who currently resides in his $14 million mansion in California after stepping down from royal duties last year, spoke to Elizabeth and Gulistan Mirzaei last week about their film Three Songs for Benazir.

In a screenshot of the conversation shared with Twitterthe filmmakers wrote: “Last week we had the honor and privilege of speaking to Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex about our film Three Songs for Benazir.

“Prince Harry’s love and dedication to Afghanistan is truly inspiring and we are so grateful to have the opportunity to share our story with him.”

Although video of the discussion doesn’t appear to be available online just yet, it’s unclear what Prince Harry’s involvement in the film is or if the conversation was for promotional purposes only.

The king, who served twice in Afghanistan during his decade in the army, signed an alleged £120million deal with Netflix in 2020.

He appeared to be relaxing in front of a large tapestry hanging on a white wall, while a green shrub also stood in the corner of the screen.

The 22-minute documentary, released on the streaming service earlier this year, tells the story of Shaist, a young man living as a refugee in a displaced persons camp in Kabul.

Shaist struggles to balance his dreams of being the first of his tribe to join the Afghan National Army with pressure from his family to have children with his new wife, Benazir.

The Duke’s appearance, apparently to promote the Netflix film, comes weeks after streaming began taking steps to get the Duke and Duchess to produce some shows in 2022 – after they announced an alleged signed a £120m contract to do television.

The couple was formed by Archewell, which will start making documentaries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programs in September 2020, and subsequently announced the deal with Netflix.

In a statement at the time, the Sussexes said: “Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope. As new parents, it is also important to us to create inspiring family programs.

They added that Netflix’s “unprecedented reach will help us share high-impact, action-unlocking content.”

Since then, however, the couple has produced or announced very little content.

The streaming giant, whose huge cash deal was one of the first to be announced after they quit as frontline royals, placed an ad for a production designer for Meghan’s debut series Pearl on Instagram in January.

The animated show, created by the Duchess of Sussex, is about a young girl who draws inspiration from influential women in history and is executive produced by Sir Elton John’s husband David Furnish and celebrity documentary maker Liz Garbus.

Harry’s latest appearance comes after it emerged that Prince Harry and Meghan are “queuing up to present the Oscar for best picture” next week, despite both dropping out of Prince Philip’s memorial service.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “It would be seen as a final kick in the teeth for the royal family if he did – he’s too nervous to fly to London without police protection but happy to be in front of a huge live audience to stand at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Not a great look.’
