Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are yet to divulge their future plans after moving to LA, but according to a source, they are looking into public speaking.
- Meghan and Harry officially stepped down as senior royals earlier this year.
- The couple were due to announce details of their new charitable platform, but held off due to the coronavirus crisis.
- This follows royal news that Meghan and Harry have had to face a sad reality.
According to recent reports, Meghan and Harry have signed with major US speaker agency Harry Walker, which also looks after a number of high profile stars.
These include the Obamas and tennis legend Serena Williams.
A source told the Los Angeles Times that Meghan and Harry “will be engaging in moderated discussions and keynote speeches with trade associations, corporations and community forums” through the agency.
If Meghan and Harry do pursue public speaking, it is thought they will use the platform to address social and humanitarian issues close to their hearts.
How much could Meghan Markle earn from one speaking slot?
According to reports, PR expert Mark Borkowski claimed that Meghan and Harry could earn at least £1million for each speaking slot they take part in.
He told The Sun, “I’m surprised they haven’t done this sooner.
“It will be one of the great income generators for them. They will clean up - they are up there with the Obamas.
“The speaker’s circuit is a natural safe space for them to plunder.
“And they are doing it in America, which is where the money is."
This comes after ex-royal protection officer Simon Morgan said there is only so much Harry and Meghan's security team will be able to do in California.
On US Weekly podcast Royally Us, he was asked, “Do you think that Meghan and Harry will ever get the privacy that they so wish to get?”
Revealing the unfortunate reality for the Sussex family, Simon said, “Sadly no, and I think a lot of it will depend on how they actually engage with people in terms of the ordinary person in the street."
