However they move forward, Harry and Meghan will come under considerable scrutiny related to their income, said Mark Borkowski, founder and head of British public relations firms, Borkowski PR.
“It’s going to be incredibly difficult to generate clean money, not just over one year, but year in and year out to maintain that,” Borkowski said.
PR expert Mark Borkowski told the Daily Mail that this global appeal will help them cash in not just in their new home base in North America, but worldwide. “I think around the world – China, America, South East Asia, India, parts of Europe – people will be falling over to get brand connections with them. They will make a fortune.”
He added, however, that they’re going to need this fortune if they plan to be totally financially independent. “…They have to make a lot of money to fuel the lifestyle and everything that they need,” he said. “It’s not that easy to separate yourself, security issues alone are enormous, and they are a target for security – how they live, how they operate.”
The British public relations guru and writer Mark Borkowski (61) believes that only a small part of the British public will understand the decision of Harry and Meghan to distance themselves from the British royal family. “The majority will regard this as selfish behavior by someone cherished by the establishment,” says Borkowski by phone from Thailand.
Prince Harry and Meghan ‘ignored Queen’s instruction not to go public with ‘stepping back’ announcement’
A series of commentators have strongly criticised the Sussexes decision. Public relations and crisis consultant Mark Borkowski said: “It does feel like a royal couple in exile”.
Wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been swiftly removed from the Royal Family set at Madame Tussauds just hours after the couple announced they would be stepping back as senior royals.
But a series of commentators have strongly criticised their decision with public relations and crisis consultant Mark Borkowski saying about the Sussexes “It does feel like a royal couple in exile”.
Public relations expert Mark Borkowski has predicted the Sussexes stand to make a fortune due to the demand for their brand in countries such as China, India and the US.
What has happened to Nigella Lawson? On the brink of her 60th birthday, the food writer and cooking show host has no TV work, new books or romance and is taking lessons from a confidence coach
PR guru Mark Borkowski comments: ‘Nigella has not successfully found a new image to inhabit. The food market is changing all the time and her big ideas are probably not big enough.’
PR expert Mark Borkowski, who has worked with Noel Edmonds and Graham Norton, told the PA news agency: “This is what was always going to be the case, I think.
“I think Meghan never quite understood what it was to be at the front and centre of the royal family, married to perhaps one of the most famous young royals, and, you know, really couldn’t take the protocol and started to create the Sussex royal brand, very powerfully and linked very much to what they thought was important – mental health, many of the other charitable aspects.
“And gradually they were, and we saw that with the announcement of the birth of their child, they didn’t play to royal protocol and they suffered the slings and arrows of all that, action from the media who clearly found it odd in the way that they were communicating the birth and communicating news on Instagram and not playing the game.
“I think what’s actually happened is they’ve suffered a lot of negative PR. They want to do good and they’ve separated themselves.”
Mr Borkowski suggested that the Sussex “brand” could rival that of the House of Windsor…

Other companies go even further and create fake news articles and misleading positive reviews. Mark Borkowski, a public relations veteran, says his company does some online reputation management for customers, but he warns that in the industry “there are a lot of snake oil salesmen and a lot of nefarious people you wouldn’t want to share a drink with on a night out”.
Andrew was dogged throughout the year by allegations that he had sex with one of the victims of US paedophile Jeffrey Epstein when she was a teenager.
Andrew’s attempts to clear his name in a BBC interview in November could have hardly gone worse.
The prince looked stiff and unapologetic — a performance akin to “watching a man in quicksand”, according to PR consultant Mark Borkowski.

Supermarket has suspended agreement with Chinese business behind charity Christmas cards until investigation concludes.
PR luminary Mark Borkowski acknowledged the promptness of Tesco’s response, noting that a few years ago its crisis management function would not have been so agile.
“But the question is: what the hell is their supply chain doing?” he told Campaign. “It creates a bigger question about the very country where many companies are sourcing a large quantity of what they are selling in the UK. There’s not enough scrutiny on the very area of work that demands the greatest scrutiny, because it delivers economically.
“At the end of the day, people are struggling and austerity is a killer, while Tesco is facing massive competition on price from the likes of Lidl and Aldi.”
The irony that Tesco’s cards are sold to raise money for charity but are produced in a country renowned for questionable human rights was not lost on Borkowski: “If you talk about purpose, you can no longer use it as virtue-signalling gibberish.”
When it comes to the business of owning up to mistakes or bad behaviour, there are many ways of expressing regret – but some more genuine and heartfelt than others.

“Some of the recent headlines have been unhelpful,” admits Mark Borkowski, a strategic PR consultant.
“There are events that happen and they‘re not thought-through properly, and the nature of being caught up with Taylor Swift‘s gang and not thinking it through strategically has undone him.
“Sometimes people don‘t recognise the power of their brand, and often you can‘t conduct yourself in the way you think you can.”

PR industry leaders are not overtly shocked by Boris Johnson’s decisive election victory, but are concerned about some of the campaign tactics deployed and what this means for society.
Mark Borkowski, founder, Borkowski PR: For a long time, I’ve known that moderates across the country were in trouble, but I didn’t realise that it would get this bad, this fast. We have handed our country into the hands of people who are willing to go to dark lengths to win.
In this campaign they have made promises and then edited them out of the recordings, they have posed as fact-checkers, they have mashed up footage of opponents to completely misrepresent them and they have been rewarded beyond their wildest expectations.
As much as I regret that Johnson has been rewarded for his behaviour, I have to hold out hope that Corbyn is forced to take responsibility for guiding his party into disaster.
