Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has signed a deal with the famous Harry Walker Agency for its coveted speaking roles. Based on the salaries of other famous speakers who are part of the Agency, it is expected that the couple will make up to $1 million per each speaking engagement.
According to the New York Post, the former Royalty has signed a deal with the Agency which other globally renowned speakers such as the Obamas, Clintons and Oprah Winfrey are part of. The Agency is known to bring $1 million to its speakers for each speaking gig.
A source explained that the couple will be making speeches on topics that they find important to themselves and to the world. Social issues, ranging from the issues of race to gender equality are likely to form the crux of their gigs.
The same source also said that many of their public engagements will be related with the objectives and goals of Archewell. The organization that has not yet been formally established is known to work for various philanthropic and global issues. It is likely that it will be promoted by the couple.
The couple’s very public departure from the royal family in all ways except in their names sent great shockwaves in and out of the British royal family. They announced that they will separate themselves from royalty, including the Royal Family firm.
Thus, many royal enthusiasts have been anticipating what works the couple will do. With this contract, it seems likely that they will focus on public engagements as a speaker while promoting their organization, not unlike the Clintons who promoted their foundation in these events.
In addition to the speaking roles, the couple are also said to be interested in documentary work, while continuing to volunteer for different groups such as rehab facilities for gang members.
Of the two, Markle has been generated more press through her impromptu commencement speech in which she talked on the issue of race. Recently, her strained relationship with her former friend Jessica Mulroney was also heavily dissected by the press.
We will continue to see how the couple stays in the public sight. Share your thoughts with us via the comments, and be sure to follow us on Facebook for more news like this one.
