Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are "aiming so high" with their Netflix deal and may even be working on a movie, their biographer has claimed.

Omid Scobie – one of the authors of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's unauthorised biography Finding Freedom – claims he has spoken to Netflix about the couple's 2022 plans, and teased that fans "don't know the half" of what's coming their way.

The 38 year old appeared on the podcast Royally Obsessed last week, where he gave his take on what the future could hold for Harry, 36, and Meghan, 40.

He divulged: "All that was said to me was, 'Oh man, you don't even know the half of what they're working on. They are aiming so high'. I think one thing that may surprise at some point, and this is just my own guess, is when we're going to hear some sort of movie announcement.

"It's only a matter of time before they have acquired the rights to a really incredible story that they're able to bring to life through a movie or television drama," he continued.

"We've heard a lot about the non-scripted work but there is that whole side of the production company that is scripted.

"It's only a matter of time before that comes to life and I think that's really exciting because it's a side of them we've never seen or heard of before but one they're really eager to get into.

"Being able to step into Hollywood a little bit but try and do it in a much more impactful and socially conscious way. That's going to be really interesting to me."

Last week, Omid claimed he has faced "prejudice" from somebody "very senior within the palace" during an interview on This Morning.

Speaking to hosts Rochelle Humes and Alison Hammond about Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey, Omid said: "We knew they had contended with issues surrounding race within the institution.

"I, myself, have experienced some prejudice from one or two royal aides in the past so, you can kind of know what Meghan was entering. It didn't surprise me but I think for it to mention a family member, I think that was the moment, even for myself, my jaw was on the floor, just like Oprah. It was the same reaction."

Rochelle later pressed on his comment, with Omid saying of the comment aimed at him: "I wouldn't say racist but I would say prejudiced. I am mixed race, there's not many mixed race royal correspondents."

The Saturdays singer asked: "By who?," with Omid responding: "I would not name that person."

She continued: "A family member?," with him answering: "No. Someone very senior within the palace who found it really peculiar that I spoke as well as I do.

"That's pretty much how they said it, actually. You know, I'm used to 'Where are you from? Where are you really from?' kind of stuff. But that was a very loaded comment and I'm sure it came not from a nasty place, but it just shows perhaps a level of unawareness within certain quarters of the institution.

"When you think of Meghan, the first bi-racial senior Royal family member, of course she's going to deal with that on a 100 times bigger scale."
