Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are not only believed to be courting celebrities, but are also “very money driven” to do more good with the Archewell Foundation, royal correspondent Richard Mineards has claimed.
In an interview with the evening standardMineards, who now works for Harry and Meghan’s local newspaper The Montecito Journal, said: “They obviously have an eye for money like their good friend James Corden who now earns something like $12 million a season from The Late Late Show. I think they’d like to get to that kind of level where hopefully they can make a lot of money and get their opinions across, but also do good things with the Archewell Foundation.”
James Corden, 43, has hosted “The Late Late Show” for six years. In October, he reportedly signed a two-year, £15m ($20m) deal with US TV chiefs to continue presenting the show.
Harry and Meghan have also been criticized for allegedly trying to woo hollywood celebrities in their recovery plan. “They’ve made a lot of friends here, especially Orlando and Katy who live nearby on Park Lane. They also have good friendships with Ellen and Oprah who live a few minutes away so they might just have been there and vice versa. versa with the kids,” Mineards concluded.
The couple now live in a $14 million mansion in Montecito, California with their children Archie, two, and Lilibet, eight months. Mineards added how Harry and Meghan managed to keep a low profile. The royal correspondent also shared that Meghan, 40, is a regular customer of Montecito Country Mart, a local shopping village with her children’s clothing boutique Poppy.
Mineards went on to say locals can expect to see “the couple more in the community” as the lockdown is over. Prince Harry, 36, was spotted cycling on the beach with his Labrador. “I don’t think they will go back to the UK at all. The British see [Meghan] like Wallis Simpson stealing the Golden Prince. They are much more welcome on this side of the Atlantic,” he said.
Since arriving in the United States, the couple have undertaken profitable deals with media companies. They recently announced that they would not be cutting ties with Spotify despite the controversy over the spread of Covid misinformation on the Joe Rogan podcast.
Netflix is also taking the necessary steps to get Harry and Meghan to produce shows this year, 16 months after signing a £120 million ($162 million) deal to create a TV show. The latest corporate move follows Harry and Meghan’s acquisition of two other entertainment companies in their growing Delaware business empire.
Meanwhile, regarding Queen Elizabeth Platinum Jubilee Celebration, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were notable for their silence after the Queen announced that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall would be Queen Consort when Prince Charles ascends the throne. The British monarch’s official celebrations will take place in June, the four-day bank that Harry and Meghan are expected to attend.
