This week a rumor spread that because of Meghan and Harry’s deal with Netflix, fundraising for Invictus Games was suspended.
The grandson of Queen Elizabeth is in the eye of the hurricane after the controversy that arose over the cancellation of his participation in the Invictus Games.
The Duke of Sussex was invited to the fundraising event for the foundation he created in 2014.
What happened to the fundraising for Invictus Games
The fundraiser was abruptly called off but not because of Prince Harry. It is no secret to anyone that many foundations and charities have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic, as they are unable to raise funds in the usual way.
The cancellation is not due to a conflict of interest between the Netflix and Amazon platforms, as stated earlier in the week. The problem lies in something more obvious.
“There is no clause in the recently signed agreement by the Sussexes with Netflix that prohibits them from working on other projects or other television services,” said Harry’s lawyers.
Given the current global circumstances brought on by covid-19, the event needed to be reconceptualized and that decision was made before the Dukes announced their partnership with Netflix.
“Invictus Games was canceled because the main source of income was the high ticket sales for the live concert that was to be held in Los Angeles in the spring of 2021,” revealed a spokesperson for the Foundation.
The foundation itself had to clarify all the conflict that negatively affected Prince Harry.
