Meghan and Harry Have Endless Possibilities in Move to Become Financially Independent, Says Trish Regan
Amid Prince Harry and Meghan’s exit from roles as senior members of the royal family, expert Trish Regaan has revealed that the couple has “endless possibilities to become financially independent.”
Last Wednesday, Prince Harry and Meghan dropped a bombshell news about their decision to step back and become financially independent from the royal family.
Since the announcement, many have wondered how the royal couple plan to make a living and finance their lifestyle.
"Given that Meghan’s net worth is set at $5 million while Harry’s is pegged between $25 and $40 million, Regan believes that the couple can grow their wealth if they create a personal brand."
According to expert Trish Regan, who spoke to PEOPLE about the couple’s financial future, Harry and Meghan have the ability to make a lot of money.
In her words:
“The possibilities right now are endless for them. They need to think about what it is that they like, what they identify with, and whether there’s a market for that.”
Regan, who is the host of “Trish Regan Primetime,” explained that Harry and Meghan could find a niche for themselves if they include a book deal that provided insight into life as a royal.
She also suggested a talk show as another possible avenue for the couple to earn some good money.

Having attended the 10th Annual One Young World opening ceremony on Tuesday, The Duchess of Sussex was joined today by The Duke of Sussex for a round table discussion on gender equity with OYW and Queen’s Commonwealth Trust young leaders. Over the last few days, these young leaders became @OneYoungWorld ambassadors with the intention to return to their communities and further existing initiatives to help change the world for the better. This year OYW partnered with the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, of which The Duke and Duchess are President and Vice-President respectively, to provide scholarships to young leaders driving positive social impact in the Commonwealth. This was the most exciting collaboration between two groups The Duchess is passionate about and has been working with for some time.

Given that Meghan’s net worth is set at $5 million while Harry’s is pegged between $25 and $40 million, Regan believes that the couple can grow their wealth if they create a personal brand.
She is of the opinion that if the lovebirds can maintain their brand of a “wholesome family image,” they can attain success and wealth just like the Kardashians.
Regan is also positive that the Sussexes will find worthy investors who would love to pattern with them.
In all of this, Trish doesn’t leave out the possibility of Meghan going back to her acting career. The duchess was famous for her role in the legal series, “Suits” before she gave up that life to join the royal family.

Today, we are excited to be able to announce details for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming tour to Africa! 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa. From meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to joining ‘Waves for Change’ on Monwabisi Beach, the South Africa programme will be educational and inspiring. The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines. HRH will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army’s partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities. The Duke is particularly proud to be able to deliver an exciting new initiative, a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed and consulted with Governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta. The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women and girls’ health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership. With such a textured culture and history, Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported. As President and Vice President of The Queens Commonwealth Trust and The Duke’s role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet with young leaders mobilising change and adding to the beauty of these Commonwealth countries 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • “We look forward to seeing you soon!” • Photo ©️ PA images / Tim Graham - Getty Images / @Sentebale /@AfricanParksNetwork / @YouthAlert
Luckily, Regan’s projections about the royal couple seem to be taking place already as The Times learned that the duchess signed a career-defining deal with Disney.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” - The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
The mother-of-one will do a voiceover in return for a donation to Elephants Without Borders. The organization is one dear to the royal’s heart as it helps to track and protect animals from poaching.
In recent times, PageSix reports Harry and Meghan have found a luxe hideout in the home of Canadian billionaire Frank Giustra since the blow out of their statement.
Although the Duke stayed behind to deal with the fallout from “Megxit" while Meghan returned to Canada, the father-of-one is expected to join his wife up north later this week.
