Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently hired Academy Award-nominated Producer Ben Browning for their upcoming production company, among many other exciting developments for their projects.


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have certainly hit the ground running. In recent reports, it has been confirmed that the former senior royals have made some changes to their production company teams.

They reportedly recruited Oscar-nominated producer Ben Browning to step in as the head of content for their companies, Archewell Productions, and Archewell Studios.

Both companies were started in partnership with Netflix and Spotify as projects that aim to bring attention to diverse and uplifting stories from around the world.

Browning is best known for his work on his 2017 romance-drama "The Big Sick," "Passengers," "Miss Sloane," "Gifted," and "Promising Young Woman." The latter is one of the current Academy Award Best Picture nominees.


The movie stands alongside other nominees, "Nomadland," "The Trial of the Chicago 7," "Minari," and "The Sound of Metal." Other movies nominated in the category are "The Father," "Judas and the Black Messiah," and "Mank."


The producer released a statement in which he shared his happiness at the prospects of working with Harry and Markle. He also said that he identifies wholly with their visions and goals, making his interest in the unique opportunity all the more potent.

Other developments in the couple's projects include a role change for Archewell Foundation director Catherine St-Laurent. St-Laurent recently stepped down 11 months after she started as executive director.

She has transferred to a senior advisory position thereafter. Longtime Sussex advisor James Holt, who was in charge of communications in the U.K, replaced St-Laurent. While Toya Holness, global press secretary, will take over his former duties.


The Invisible Hand, a diverse female-led team in the U.S., was also added on board. These new hires and position shuffles came months after the Duke and Duchess hired former Pinterest head of communications, Christine Schirmer.


Together, they will oversee the executive and communications strategy for the Archewell Foundation as well as any of the Sussexes' future projects and personal ventures.


Things seem to be moving fast as Harry and Markle revealed their dreams for their Foundation earlier in the year. Their motto, "community service compassion" actionably encompasses what their goals are for their companies.

Back in February, they unveiled their updated website with photos and glimpses at various facets of their non-profit work, which upped the excitement for their many projects to come.

This royal couple undoubtedly has a goal, and their focus and determination to see it come to life is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Many have already seen them take steps to make sure of it.
