The appearance of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the private JPMorgan event in Miami, was a groundbreaking move for Royals, People reports.


The Sussexes, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan made an appearance at the JPMorgan Summit held in Miami South Beach, FL, on February 6, where the father of one delivered an emotional speech.

The couple was reportedly paid over $500,000 to speak at the event, which goes contrary to the Royal values that permit public speaking only in exchange for a charity cause.

The Prince delivered a speech on mental health and also spoke about dealing with the loss of his mom for the past seven years through therapy sessions.

Although it has not been confirmed if the Sussex pair accepted monetary benefits for the appearance, the engagement still calls for Royal concern. An insider explained:


"Every guest at a Royal event is scrutinized by the Royal household. Who sat at their table? It is a slippery slope. Something like this is absolutely groundbreaking."


The talk, which was delivered at a star-studded event, packed with investment bankers and celebrities, was the first of many to come as more companies look forward to having the Royals grace their celebrations.

A recent report alleged that Goldman Sachs is in discussions with the Royal couple to clinch a deal with them as guest speakers on "Talks At GS."



It was revealed that the Royal parents shared a table with Hollywood legend, Jennifer Lopez, and her fiance, Rodriguez, on Thursday night at 1 Hotel, South Beach, hours after Harry made his stage appearance at the private JPMorgan event.

In spite of all the drama, she misses Harry too and doesn't want him to feel alienated from the family.

An onlooker disclosed that the iconic singer invited the Royal duo and their 9-month-old son, Archie, to drop by for a visit at their Miami apartment.



With more public engagements popping up since the step down of the Sussexes, the Royal lovebirds have settled into their new life in Canada. However, the Monarch, Queen Elizabeth, is yet to adapt to their absence fully. A Royal insider disclosed:

"Elizabeth has asked Harry and Meghan to return to the UK for the Annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster, Abbey. She'd love to see him again."

The Duke and Duchess are expected to make their return to Europe next month, but before resuming the life of Royal balls and schedules again, they are set to make the most of their time in Canada.



A source revealed that the couple was planning a romantic Canadian Valentine evening come February 14, where the Prince hopes to put his newly-acquired culinary skills to use.

Considering how swiftly the "Suits" actress and Prince Harry have adapted to their life of independence, it's hard to imagine that barely weeks ago, they were Royal Highnesses living within the confines of palace protocols.

Earlier this year, the Sussexes shocked the universe with the announcement of their intention to step down as senior Royals and become financially independent from the crown.

As part of their decision to quit their royal duties, the couple disclosed that they planned to share their time between the United States and the UK, to avail their son a normal life.

The couple's decision has proven to be the fulfillment of the much-yearned hope for a peaceful life and normal childhood for their son.
