The former Sussex Royals currently live in Los Angeles after officially departing the royal family on April 1. The couple have started undertaking projects, with Meghan Markle making an appearance in Disney’s Elephant documentary.
The couple are now represented by the Harry Walker agency, who’s website claims that it is “the world’s leading speaker bureau”.
The agency represent Former US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
The US couple have made millions of dollars through public speaking engagements after being represented by the agency.
Meghan and Harry’s partnership with the agency indicates that the couple are set to enjoy the lucrative public speaking industry.

Since moving to Los Angeles, the couple have focused on their charities, and helping COVID-19 response teams.
Signing with the Harry Walker agency is their first major career move post-royal life.
It’s reported that the Sussex’s are looking to the Obama’s business model as inspiration.
If they follow the Obama’s model, then public speaking is likely to be key to their future earnings.
The couple won’t be discussing their lives as royals, instead focusing on social concerns that they hold dear.
They also won’t be abandoning their charity work, and recently they’ve been attempting to launch their own foundation.
The couple said of their non-profit: “Before SussexRoyal, came the idea of ‘Arche’—the Greek word meaning ‘source of action’. We connected to this concept for the charitable organisation we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name.
“Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon.”
“Faced with this information coming to light, we felt compelled to share the story of how this came to be.
“We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”
Morton notes that the couple are free to do what they want now they’re independent from the royal family.
He said: “They’re no longer part of the House of Windsor, they are the House of Sussex, and free from the palace.”
Another future project for the couple is the biography book market, something else that the Obama’s had pursued to great success.
