NYPost reports oh, so that’s how they’re going to pay the bills!
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to make up to $1 million per speech after hiring a top speaking agency.
Last week Meghan Markle and Prince Harry signed with prestigious speaking agency Harry Walker Agency – whose other high-end clients include Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, and Oprah Winfrey – which specializes in commanding $1 million fees for their in-demand clients.
The highly sought after couple will hold conversations that will “relate to topics that are important in their lives—and in the world,” a source told Town & Country. “Topics will largely relate to the social issues the world is facing now including racial justice and gender equity, mental health, issues impacting women and girls and the environment—as well as the intersectional nature of these issues. … Many of the areas and topics covered in these conversations will be related to the foundation and mission of Archewell, their new organization housing their philanthropic endeavors.”
The formerly royal Duke and Duchess have been looking for work since they left the Royal Family firm and in addition to speaking engagement are said to be looking into documentary projects while volunteering at places like a gang rehab center.
Meanwhile, Markle may have signaled the nail in the coffin of her friendship with former bestie Jessica Mulroney when she didn’t wish Mulroney’s daughter Ivy, 7, a happy birthday — leaving Mulroney worried that her friendship with the Duchess is “now over for good,” according to the Daily Mail.
Markle had pressed pause on her friendship with Mulroney after Toronto-based black lifestyle influencer Sasha Exeter posted a message on Instagram calling for people with large platforms to use them to promote the Black Lives Matter movement.
She later posted a video claiming Mulroney had taken the post as a personal attack on her and had threatened to harm Exeter’s career. Mulroney apologized but was quickly fired from her jobs at “Good Morning America”, “I Do, Redo” and had to step down from the charity she founded with her sisters-in-law.
Her husband, Ben Mulroney, host of the Canadian entertainment show “etalk,” also quit his job after his cohost Elaine Liu, wrote an excoriating blog about the couple, in which she ominously claimed that the Mulroneys were “keeping track” of those who didn’t support Jessica amid the scandal.
