Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s LA dream ‘in tatters’

MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry’s future plans in their new home of Los Angeles “are in tatters”, a royal commentator has claimed.

The Duke and Meghan Markle left the Royal Family in March after stepping back from their senior roles in a bid to seek financial independence and a new life in America. The couple are currently living in Los Angeles reportedly as a guest of Tyler Perry in his mansion, it is understood.

But reports suggest the couple have started looking for a permanent residence in the city with their one-year-old son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Former Suits star Meghan made a return to screens with a Disney voiceover deal, with speculation another role could be on the cardsbefore coronavirus lockdown came into force.

The couple are also set to launch a new charity initiative called the Archewell Foundation.

Public speaking for the couple was also on the agenda as part of their American career plans after the couple spoke at a JP Morgan event earlier this year.

Russell Myers, royal editor of Daily Mirror suggests however that these plans are “up in the air” at the moment.

In an interview with Radio New Zealand, he said: “All their plans are simply up in the air at the moment.

“They had huge plans once they settled in Los Angeles… to set up their own foundation and now obviously these plans are in tatters.

“They had plans to launch themselves into the corporate world, into the very, very lucrative world of public speaking, where they could potentially net millions and millions of pounds for a single gig.”

Mr Myers also suggested their celebrity status was because of their “Royal Family” links.

He continued: “Their celebrity culture is their Royal Family and that’s kind of how [Americans] see Harry and Meghan.

“It remains to be seen how successful they will be.”

Commenting on the individual traits of Harry and Meghan, Mr Myers claimed LA was a” foreign world” for Harry stressing that he “would be leaning on” his wifes success.

He added: “It’s been discussed about how many times can Harry wheel out this story of his own mental hardship?

“His mother dying very young has had a profound effect on him and he is able to speak from the heart on certain issues, but once you’ve done that… how many more times can you do it?

“I’m not sure how many strings he has to his bow.”

Commenting on Meghan Markle however, Myers described The Duchess of Sussex as “very adaptable”.

He added: “She’s a successful actress, she’s had success speaking with the UN, speaking on a wide range of charitable endeavours.

“They could be a tour de force as a collective, but Harry really needs to find his feet.”
