Mark Borkowski, a British PR and branding expert, told the New York Post that Harry and Meghan could each stand to make at least half a million dollars per speech. Additionally, the couple may be mulling around setting up their own documentary channel.
“With the kind of work that Meghan and Harry want to do, they have to be free from palace protocol and politics,” Borkowski said. “You can’t speak out properly with the palace breathing down your neck.”
Even with their newfound freedom, however, there’s a certain way Harry and Meghan should go about their business model, the PR expert says.
“There is a very clever way of being Kardashian-like. People joke about the Kardashians, but look at their enormous value,” he said. “Meghan and Harry are clearly connected to a lot of money, they have a fantastic platform. But it needs to be the right money. They can’t be seen to take money from oligarchs and Middle Eastern princes.”
He continued, “I could see them throwing almighty parties every quarter, like Elton John does to raise money for his AIDS foundation, with the great and the good.”
