Girl power!

A statement released by Archewell Productions, the company established by her and her husband, Prince Harry, revealed that the series will be centered around the adventures of a 12 year-old girl who is inspired by a variety of powerful and influential women in history.

Meghan will also be the executive producer for the series which is called 'Pearl'.

Filmmaker David Furnish, who is the spouse of Sir Elton John, will also add his creativity to the production of the series.
