Meghan Markle was in contact with 4 Hollywood advisers while in UK: 'They were constantly fielding proposals'
The former actress while being inside the Palace always had calls with her lawyer, business manager, and talent agents
Meghan Markle did not completely cut off her entertainment industry connections while living in the UK as she was in constant touch with four Hollywood advisers, reports say.
The former actress while being inside the Palace always had calls with her lawyer, business manager, and talent agents. Several sources confirmed the reports, saying Meghan’s trusted team members were lawyer Rick Genow, business manager Andrew Meyer, and talent agent Nick Collins, with whom she often had conference calls.
Besides, Keleigh Thomas Morgan of PR firm Sunshine Sachs was reportedly also part of her close group. A source said, “Rick, Andrew and Nick came with the territory. So did Keleigh. They were constantly fielding proposals for Meghan and bringing stuff to her. But the team in America did pose problems for staff at KP [Kensington Palace]. There was always quite a lot of secrecy surrounding the couple’s conversations with the US.”
Harry and Meghan 'LIED': Insider says Prince Charles didn't cut them off, 'went out of his way to support them'
Not just that, Meghan and Prince Harry also had meetings with the now-closed video platform Quibi even before the birth of their first-born Archie. It has been said that the Sussexes’ meetings with Quibi resulted in their tensions with Palace staff and they were accused of “cashing in” their royal titles. An insider said, “A lot of it was orchestrated by Meghan’s people in America. It was a bit of a secret squirrel.” “There were well-developed proposals in place with Quibi from early 2019,” another insider added.
This was in contrast to the Duke of Sussex’s claim made during an explosive sit-down with Oprah Winfrey that they “didn’t have a plan” when they shifted to Canada in March 2020. In fact, according to sources, an offer was planned by Quibi for the pair to feature in a series in 2019. Harry also reportedly had a meeting with the former company’s founder, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and its chief executive and former president of eBay, Meg Whitman. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the plans did not work out.
Later, Meghan and Harry signed huge deals with streaming giants Netflix and Spotify. Harry, however, gave his reasons to sign the deals during the March 7 bombshell interview. The 36-year-old said, “We didn't have a plan. That was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us.” He also added, “I've got what my mum left me, and without that, we would not have been able to do this.”
But Harry was accused of lying by royal insiders, who also claimed that his allegations have “let down” Prince Charles. “The Prince of Wales went out of his way to make sure his son and daughter in law were financially supported,” a senior figure said, added Charles “supported the duke and duchess more than he would care to say.”
Meanwhile, it has recently been reported that Harry has secured two jobs in the US - one as the chief impact officer of a start-up called BetterUp and the second as a commissioner a think tank, The Aspen Institute, where he will work with others studying “fake news”.
