    The boss of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's organisation Archewell has stepped down just days before The Sussex's bombshell Netflix documentary is released.

    The company confirmed in a statement, shared with the couple's pal Omid Scobie, that president Mandana Dayani, 40, said she is leaving her post, as previously planned.

    It is understood the couple will take on full leadership of the company, with the statement saying that Dayani's exit was part of a "transition" into Harry and Meghan heading up Archewell.

    The charitable firm said: "Ms Deyani has been an integral part of Archewell and we are grateful for her passion, commitment and leadership.

    "Ms Deyani was brought on during their parental leave to move the company and its projects forward. She has continued to shape its vision and future successfully."

    Ms Dayani has been at the helm of the couple's media and charitable empire for less than 18 months.

    The statement continued: "Her transition was mutually planned, with intent for The Duke and Duchess to now take full lead of their company.

    "There will be no replacement for this position, and Ms Deyani is fully supportive of the Duke and Duchess in their leadership roles, and they remain friends."

    And her move comes as TV insiders warn that the upcoming Netflix series will make very uncomfortable viewing for the royal family, with Harry and Meghan once again set to make bombshell revelations about 'The Firm'.

    The six-part series is jointly produced by Archewell and Netflix, and is expected to spark a backlash from the embattled royal family.

    Ms Deyani ran the day-to-day operations at the company, and played an integral role in setting up Meghan's Spotify podcast Archetypes.

    One source in contact with a Netflix production insider said: “I genuinely think it’s going to be worse than the royals can imagine.

    “I’m told that it’s going to be utterly explosive and will be very damaging.”
