Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just got some bad news when their strict list of demands for their $1 million speaking events leaked to the public.
Daily Mail reported that the “Virtual Event Request Form” reveals that anyone who wants to book Harry and Meghan for a speaking engagement must let them choose who introduces or moderates any discussion they take part in.
“The choice of introducer and moderator will be at the final discretion of the speaker,” reads the four-page form. “The fee will need to be paid directly from the contracting organization’s account.”
Meghan and Harry also demand that they be given a full list of sponsors, even if they are not directly involved with their presentation.
“If you were to lose one or more of the above sponsors, would your organisation still be able to move forward with this event?” the form questions.
Organizers must give Meghan and Harry all the details about the “connection format,” and what contigency plans are in place if there are “connectivity issues.”
Meghan and Harry could earn as much as $1 million per speech through the Harry Walker Agency (HWA), a New York-based speaking agency that also represents Barack and Michelle Obama. The couple also just signed a deal with Netflix that could be worth up to $150 million.
“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,” they told the New York Times after signing the deal. “As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.”
They went on to say that Netflix’s “unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.”
After stepping down as senior members of the British royal family earlier this year, Meghan and Harry briefly moved to Canada before relocating to her hometown of Los Angeles, California. There, they spent months living in the $18 million mansion of Hollywood mogul Tyler Perry until they bought their own home in the nearby city of Santa Barbara back in July.
