They’ve spent lockdown popping up on Zoom calls and now a list of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s speaker demands has been revealed.
Back in June, it was announced that the Sussexes had signed up with an agency to begin their public speaking career, a move which is expected to earn them millions.
The couple is now on the books with the Harry Walker Agency, who also work exclusively with former president Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, as well as Bill Clinton and his wife, former Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.
Now, in a four-page ‘Virtual Event Request Form’ document seen by The Telegraph, a list of demands issued by The Harry Walker Agency has been revealed.
In order to secure either Prince Harry or Meghan Markle for an event, the document claims that the couple must have control over who moderates any discussion with them, who introduces them and a full list of audience attendees must be supplied to them beforehand.
All sponsors must be revealed before the event, the document claims, stating: “If you were to lose one or more of the above sponsors, would your organisation still be able to move forward with this event?”
It also reportedly states that the fee must be paid in advance of the event and it must be stated whether the couple need to wear “business or casual” attire.
A source previously told Yahoo UK that the Sussexes will be joining discussions and making speeches on “racial justice, gender equity, mental health and the environment”.
It seems things are going well for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle financially, after leaving the royal family in March and stating how they wished to become financially independent.
They recently signed a huge multi-year deal with Netflix, thought to be worth $130 million, to create a series of documentaries, films and TV shows for the streaming giant.
It’s believed the shows will be based on issues that resonate with the couple personally and some of the projects are already in development, including a nature docu-series and an animated series celebrating inspiring women.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a statement: “Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection.
“Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope.
“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.”
