Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to model themselves on the Obamas after the pair abandon royal duties


MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry could model themselves on the Obamas after the pair quit as senior royals.

A Hollywood PR guru has revealed the former US President and his wife are an ideal example of how to “make money and keep it classy”.

They could model themselves on the Obamas as they try to be financially independent but retain status

Howard Bragman said: “They could find projects that are moving and sometimes Meghan could be in them.

“If its a documentary, maybe Harry could narrate it.”

It comes days after they announced they are stepping back and plan to become financially independent.

They want to split their time between North America and the UK – with their future roles still being hammered out.

As royals are locked in crisis talks the pair are “hopeful” workable solutions can be found “sooner rather than later”, a source has said.

They added said: “It is in everyone’s interest for this to be figured out, and figured out quickly, but not at the expense of the outcome.”

Harry and Meghan will be able to earn money, and speculation is growing about what they will do.

A former actress on the US hit Suits, Meghan, 38, could return to the screen, and Harry could earn huge fees from public speaking.


“Big name speakers get well into six figures to make an appearance or give a speech at an event.

“If they choose to pursue that avenue, they would be considered in the top echelon of speakers,” said Jeff Jacobson, co-founder of Canada-based Talent Bureau.

The Sussexes are currentlyfunded in part by the Prince of Wales, and their bombshell announcement to quit as senior royals made it clear they wanted that to continue.

But it is understood Charles is adamant any funds agreement will be decided once their future roles are ironed out.

Prince Harry reportedly defied instructions from the Queen not to announce their plans, after she requested he hold off until he talked it over with his father.

And Prince Charles told his son he needed more time after he was sent a draft proposal about his future role, particularly on the issue of funding.

But it was revealedthe Queen reportedly learned she had been ignored when the news broke on TV, and Charles and William only got a statement copy ten minutes before it went live.

British taxpayers could still front the 600,000 security bill for the family despitetheir bombshell pledge tonight to be “financially independent”.

They also get about another 2million annually from Prince Charles’ Duchy Of Lancaster estate – which may not continue if Charles chooses to cut off his son.

The Sussexesalso hope to keep their Frogmore Cottage home, which was refurbished last year at a cost of 2.4million to the taxpayer.

Harry has spent time with the Obamas previously – they watched a basketball game at Fort Belvoir in 2015
