The Duchess of Sussex quietly deleted any reference to a TV show she was producing after Netflix dropped her.
Pearl – an animated series about a girl inspired by influential women throughout history – was made by Meghan and Harry’s production company Archewell.
However, all references to the show on the Archewell Productions website were removed after it was dropped by the streaming service.
A synopsis of the series along with a lengthy quote from Meghan could previously be found on the site.
The Duchess has been listed as executive producer of the program along with Elton John’s husband David Furnish.
The sun reports that Meghan’s quote read: “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 am delighted that Archewell Productions, in partnership with the powerful platform of Netflix and these incredible producers, brings you together this new animated series, which celebrates extraordinary women throughout history.
“David Furnish and I were excited to shine a light on this special series, and I’m thrilled that we can announce it today.”

All that remains on Meghan and Harry’s production page is one of two of their projects, the ‘Heart of Invictus’.
The show’s cancellation is the latest blow to the couple after it was announced they would be banned from the Royal Balcony at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Harry and Meghan, who have stepped down from their role as senior royals, will return to the UK for the monarch’s celebration, which marks her 70 years on the throne.
But the US-based couple will join Prince Andrew on the sidelines after he was removed from the job amid sexual abuse allegations.
Sources inside the palace also say a Netflix film crew following Meghan and Harry will be arrested by royal law enforcement if they attempt to film the celebrations.
