Royal Expert claims that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry 'won't last'

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are under pressure to deliver on their Netflix and Spotify deals, according to a royal expert. Royal commentator Daniela Elser said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “have a lot to prove” and are “fighting against the clock” after signing a multi-million pound deal with Netflix last year, as well as a lucrative agreement with Spotify.

Ms Elser added that if Harry and Meghan “don’t want to be written off as a marketing gimmick” they will need to “prove they are worth the investment”.

She said that so far the couple, who are living in California after quitting royal duties, “haven’t exactly set Hollywood on fire”. Writing for news.com.au, Ms Elser said: “The problem with this paradigm is that their entire money-making ability is pegged to their ability to generate good PR.

“Should interest in them wane, or public fatigue for the never-out-of-the-news duo set in, then their value could plummet. “While Harry and Megan’s financial future might outwardly seem rosy thanks to their Netflix deal (and their estimated $33.5million Spotify deal) look closer and things aren’t quite so shiny.

“The Times has reported that, according to industry insiders, it is likely that their Netflix deal would be structured such that they receive a retainer of somewhere between $1.85million and $3.7million annually, and would then earn more as they release shows. “Given their costs for security and their home in Montecito have been estimated at around $5.9million, they would need their productions to be smash hits.”

Ms Elser’s comments come as the Sussexes’ Archewell Productions company announced the second show from the Netflix deal the Sussexes signed last year.
