Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have major plans in the works. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have recently signed with the New York-based Harry Walker Agency for speaking engagements, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Per the outlet, the couple “will be engaging in moderated discussions and keynote speeches with trade associations, corporations and community forums.” Not to mention, they will also continue to focus (and speak) on important issues like racial injustice, gender equality, the environment and mental health. Since starting their post-royal life in March, both Meghan and Harry have dipped their toes into public speaking (Harry spoke at a private JP Morgan event in Miami and Meghan gave a commencement speech to her alma mater).
The agency, which is tasked with fielding and sourcing speaking opportunities, has a pretty impressive client list, including Oprah Winfrey, Jane Goodall, Michelle and Barack Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, Alex Rodriguez, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Tina Fey, Stacey Abrams and Gloria Steinem.
This latest venture comes as the duke and duchess continue to prep for the launch of their new foundation, Archewell. And while foundation details are still scarce, according to paperwork filed, the multifaceted plan will include emotional support groups, a multi-media educational component and even a well-being website. The couple will also be setting up their own charity and producing educational films, podcasts and books.
