Harry and Meghan arrive in Morocco for whirlwind tour
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s career masterplan is “crumbling” because they are “really struggling to succeed as non-working royals,” a commentator has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed media deals with bumper media deals with Netflix and Spotify in 2020 when they stepped down as senior working members of the British Royal Family.
But last month, Meghan Markle and Harry’s deal with Spotify was mutually ended and their Netflix series was snubbed in the Emmy Award nominations – despite it breaking viewership records for the online streamer.
The couple are now seemingly on different career paths. Earlier this year, Meghan signed up to Hollywood talent agency WME, while Prince Harry’s own Heart of Invictus series will hit Netflix next month. He will also reportedly travel to Africa to film another documentary.
This has led many royal commentators to question where they each go with their careers from here, including Nile Gardiner, who told Daily Express US: “The Montecito empire is crumbling into the ground.

“It is not surprising we haven’t heard much from either of them in recent months because they have become hugely unpopular figures on both sides of the Atlantic.
“The deal with Spotify has come to an end and in fact they were condemned by a senior executive there, who called them ‘grifters’. Their dreams of conquering America are coming to an end.”
Meghan and Harry’s next career move is now being monitored closely, with wild speculation swirling over what paths the Duke and Duchess of Sussex may each choose to pursue.
Harry has been tipped by some experts to reconcile with the Royal Family, but Gardiner believes there is “no way back” for the prince on that front.
Instead, he thinks the couple will do everything possible to hold onto their Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles.

The commentator said: “The only thing Harry and Meghan currently have going for them is their royal titles, which they cling to like a life raft.
“I see no way back for Harry in terms of returning to the royal fold.
“Both Harry and Meghan are really struggling to succeed as non-working royals. But they will fight to keep their royal titles because that’s all they have at the moment in terms of prestige.”
Elsewhere, it has been claimed Meghan is planning on becoming a “Hollywood power player” and has “set up shop” in an LA hotel suite close to her talent agency as she works on new projects.
Earlier this year, it was reported Meghan Markle had signed with renowned Hollywood talent agency William Morris Endeavour (WME), which has represented global superstars such as Dwayne Johnson, Adele, and Serena Williams.
Now royal commentator Kinsey Schofield has revealed one of the rumors doing the rounds is that Meghan Markle is looking to make a big play in Hollywood.
The expert said during an appearance on GB News in the UK: “One of the rumors is that Meghan has set up shop in a hotel suite across from her agency William Morris Endeavour and that she has her eyes set on bigger opportunities.
“She wants to be a power player in Hollywood and that is not the direction that Harry has any desire to go.”
Meghan and Harry still have their bumper multi-year deal with Netflix worth a reported $100 million, which they signed after stepping down as senior working members of the British Royal Family in 2020.
Last month, Netflix reaffirmed its commitment to the partnership with Meghan and Harry, quashing speculation it may be in danger of following the couple’s agreement with Spotify, which has mutually ended.
A spokesperson for the online streaming giant told Entertainment Tonight: “The bond with Archewell Productions is one we deeply value. Harry and Meghan launched as Netflix’s most spectacular documentary debut to date.
“Our exciting journey with them isn’t ending anytime soon. We’re currently collaborating on numerous projects, including the much-anticipated documentary series Heart of Invictus.”
