Reportedly Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have taken on their ex-employees Clara Loughran and Beth Herlihy. The Daily Mail reported that these two would now be carrying out the charity work back in Britain on behalf of the couple.
While the employees will look after the charity work, the Duke and Duchess will continue to remain busy in the US with a bunch of upcoming projects. Ms Loughran had worked for Prince Harry since 2015, tasked with putting together his charitable programs. Harry is an admirer of her work which is why she was accepted as a Member of the Royal Victorian Order by the Queen. Ms Herlihy, on the other hand, has worked alongside Prince Harry for years, co-ordinating events for the Royal Foundation initiative.
The Daily Mail also claimed that the two were among at least 13 employees to have lost their jobs when the couple moved to the US. But once they started building up a new team, they called the two old employees to help them carry out their future projects. Other experts to have joined the Duke and Duchess’ team includes Christine Weil Schirmer, who used to handle communications for the website Pinterest.
Upcoming projects and planning
The duo has also added members to their team to run the non-profit Archewell foundation. Meanwhile, Harry and Meghan also signed a contract with the US public speaking agency Harry Walker earlier this year. The high-profile speaking agency also handles other prominent names including former US President Barack Obama and tennis icon Maria Sharapova.
Meghan and Harry will also produce documentaries and other shows for video streaming service Netflix. In an official statement they mentioned, “Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope. As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens.”
