Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced financial independence from the royal family, plus splitting time between North America and the UK. It’s a huge step to cut off from one of the richest families in history! After unrelenting criticism against Markle, the family deserves a break from that media circus brought on by the monarchy.
Markle and Prince Harry are smart, educated persons with resources and connections that can easily help them support their household. Here are some options they should consider as new sources of income.
There’s money in autobiographies, and if Meghan Markle or Prince Harry decide to sit down and tell it all, then they would be hits. Not to mention, celebrities tend to get seven-figure advances on these types of books, plus however many millions of dollars for copies sold.
Markle has an interesting life that the world has speculated and criticized for several reasons. What some consider her weaknesses are actually her strengths, which include her being African-American, raised by a single African-American woman, both of them working-class, then becoming a successful actress.
Moreover, Prince Harry could write about his life as a royal and all the shortcomings attached.
Prince Harry has not had many other jobs in his lifetime, but one thing he’s definitely done is public speaking. Most celebrities and politicians get paid a lot of money to speak at university graduations or conventions. Especially if Markle and Prince Harry write books, they’re rates for speeches can go as high as their book advances.
Moreover, speech and book tours are well regarded, intellectual pastimes of promotion. Keynote speakers are highly respected, and their words are greatly appreciated by audiences.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry say they will be splitting their time between the United Kingdom and North America. So, it’s fair to question if they’re moving to Canada, where Markle once frequented while starring in tv series “Suits“.
Specifically, Toronto is a burgeoning film and television town, most shows filmed there today. From both their experiences and connections, they would be great at producing television or film related to their interests. Moreover, they could help underrepresented persons with creating new and exciting stories.
If they can’t have power in the royal family, they might yet get power through a local election. In the United States and Canada, residents can run for local office. If Markle and Prince Harry stay long enough in one place, they would be able to make a change in politics.
There’s definitely money in politics as well, maybe not in the most moral way, but taking donations from corporations could be a good income supply. However, if done morally, they’re still capable of a standard government salary, while being advocates for positive change.
