Meghan and Harry expiry date as ‘some other hot couple will replace them’

404

MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry have an expiry date and are anxious to “capitalise” on their situation, as “some other hot couple” will eventually come and take their place in the world, a royal expert told Express co uk.

The past week has arguably been Meghan and Harry’s most lucrative week in showbiz. While the Duchess of Sussex announced she was creating a new animated series for Netflix with Elton John’s husband, David Furnish, Harry revealed that he had been writing his memoir set to be published in 2022. The Duke’s announcement, in particular, shook the world of the Royal Family and royal commentators, who could only hazard a guess as to what sort of revelations Harry might now put before the public.

It was here that they revealed their financial turmoil as a result of being “cut off” – something that was later challenged by royal expenditure receipts – as well as allegations on failing to help Meghan’s mental health and racism against the-then unborn Archie.

While outrage persists over the onslaught of multi-million pound deals, publicity drives and media focus – all in the name of pursuing “private lives” – many believe that the couple are following a logical path.

However, Marlene Koenig, a royal expert, said it makes sense for them to throw all their efforts at capitalising from their situation because at some point, “some other hot couple will replace them” as the topic of interest.

She told Express.co.uk: “They’ll always be there, but as with anything else, some other hot couple will replace them.

“They’ll do different things and they’ll have established themselves in the future, but who knows what they’ll do.

“One can hope that at some point Harry will, as will his father and brother, need to sit down and talk.

“The fact that he could have stayed longer after the Diana statue and didn’t again sends a message that, is he making an effort? Are they making an effort? We don’t know.

“But, they want to put their eggs in a basket right now because people are interested.”

She added: “They are two human beings who have made a decision, they may not have made completely the right decision, not every decision has been good, neither is how they have reacted to situations, but I think they need to do what they want to do.

“But both sides need to communicate.

“If this is how he’s communicating by writing the book, he’s missing the context of, ‘I need to talk to my father.'”

On top of the memoir, Harry is creating and producing one of what should be the first of many Netflix documentaries.

‘Heart of Invictus’ will follow competitors of the Invictus Games on their individual journeys to next year’s tournament set to take place in The Hague, Netherlands.

Many have started to question whether Netflix will be wanting more from Meghan and Harry considering the vast sums involved.

The same has been said of Spotify, with the couple only having produced one 30 minute episode of their Archewell Audio series, which saw other famous people talk about their experiences during lockdown.

And the contracts are hefty: Netflix signed them up for a fee reported to be worth £109million while Spotify lured them with £36m.

Russell Myers, the Daily Mirror’s royal editor, recently told Australia’s ‘Today’ programme that bosses from both streaming platforms would soon be “wondering where their hard-earned dollars are going exactly”.

When the show’s host asked: “Harry and Meghan are still making do financially on their own two feet, we believe.

“But pressure is mounting on them to deliver on these Spotify and Netflix deals. Big money is at stake,” Mr Myers replied: “Well, definitely. Why wouldn’t it be?

“And where is the content? We have had one podcast so far, and that hasn’t caught the world alight.

“And they have a promised Netflix show which I’m sure will be fantastic because it’s all about the Invictus Games.

“But certainly the big bosses at the two streaming giants will be wanting their pound of flesh.

“And if they are not producing the goods, the big bosses will be wondering where their hard-earned dollars are going exactly.”
