For the past few weeks we’ve heard that the Sussexes are shopping around a top-secret new project – and now new details of that project have been revealed.

Harry (35) and Meghan (39) are working on a TV show which will be aimed at highlighting women empowerment and racial inequality issues.

According to an insider, while they will appear in the show and are joint producers on it, the project is not about them. Instead it will focus on “normal” people.

The show has already been pitched to a number of TV executives in Hollywood, the Mirror reports.

Talks have been held with TV bosses such as Bonnie Hammer, NBC Universal’s chairman of content studios, who Meghan has known since her time on the TV show Suits.

Meanwhile the former royal couple were spotted recently in their first post-lockdown public appearance, taking part in a charity event in Los Angeles.

The two were seen volunteering for the charity Baby2Baby at an elementary school in south Los Angeles. They were photographed handing out essential supplies during a drive-in that included clothes and nappies to local families.

Baby2Baby, which is supported by many celebrities including Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel and Kate Hudson, provides basic necessities for families in need.

According to a source the couple were “nothing but smiles” as they chatted with families and wished kids good luck on their new school year which starts in September.

“Everyone was in great spirits,” a source told royal reporter and Finding Freedom co-author Omid Scobie. “The kids were eager to receive their books and supplies and Meghan and Harry did what they do best – engage and connect with the crowd.”
