Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Warned By Royal Expert Over Lack Of Content
On his YouTube channel, royal expert Neil Sean warned Prince Harry and Markle about not releasing new content for Spotify and Netflix. He said that it’s only a matter of time before the couple loses future deals with other brands.
“Let me give you a bit of advice Harry and Meghan, it's not as simple or as easy you possibly think. You have to think of content and then more importantly you have to produce it, write it and maybe hopefully get an audience on top of all that. So, it's not as easy as they possibly thought but when you become a major celebrity like Harry and Meghan are now, the bigger problem is you have a golden period. Everybody wants to sign you, you get invited to things like the Oscars. You get offered all these mega deals as we saw the books deal along with is worth a lot of money even though he's going to have to deliver some rather tawdry asides to make sure that people feel they've got their value for money,” Sean said.
If Prince Harry and Markle do things right, they could end up making more money because more companies and brands would want to work with them.
“Everything hinges now for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the next level of content that they will deliver to the public. If it's a spectacular success, they are guaranteed even more money but as ever in the fickle world of Hollywood they're now living in, if it doesn't resonate with the audience then they can expect a sharp decline in those mega offers and mega deals,” Sean added.

Because whenever there are issues to do with not just politics but the significance of truth and anything to do with the public mood. It's absolutely crucial that we get the Duke and Duchess on anything. I'm a great fan of the Royal Family, I am not a fan of these former members. What they think they can contribute I do not know,” he said.
A spokesperson for Prince Harry and Markle confirmed that the couple would continue to work with Spotify.
