Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Warned About Their Relevance, Sussex Brand Faces Redundancy
After stepping back as senior royals to move to the US, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have multi-million-dollar deals with streaming giants Spotify and Netflix.
The couple revealed they wanted to become financially independent and get away from the shadow of the British royal family.
Since leaving, they could carve out careers for themselves that they got successful in bagging deals from major brands. With Netflix and Spotify, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to produce content that needs to become an instant hit.
But since the announcement of their deals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle haven't released any output for either Spotify or Netflix.
On Spotify, the pair only released one 34-minute podcast despite being with the platform for more than nine months.
In an interview with Express UK, a royal expert thinks that fans will get bored of their brand's "touchy-feely" content that is currently in the works.
"Heart of Invictus" will focus on the Invictus Games, which is a sports event for all the wounded and disabled soldiers who fought for the UK. The first Games took place in Sept. 2014.
Meanwhile, Pearl is reportedly a tale of fantasy and history combined and is described as a family series that centers on the adventure of a 12-year-old girl.
Hugo Vickers told the outlet, "I'm of the sort of generation that finds all this touchy-feely stuff rather unattractive, and I don't really understand it and I don't go for it either."
He added, "What have they got to say, will their message get any better as time goes on? Or will it just be more of the same? And people will get bored with them, won't they?"
Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Still Relevant?
The royal expert also questions the kind of media brand Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going for, following the latter's exit from the "Suits" TV show.
Vickers said that he thinks the former Hollywood actress wants "global recognition," but it's all thanks to her being a royal because if she was still in "Suits," nobody was talking about her.
"Everywhere I go people talk about her, which they wouldn't have done if she was just a star in Suits, but it's all because she's married to him."
Prince Harry was a member of one of the most famous families globally, and with his titles, it was easier to market. But not anymore.
The expert said, "He's just a guy in blue jeans with a backpack and a ginger beard and woolly hat sometimes."
