Prince Harry and Meghan Markle find themselves in a precarious position as they reportedly scramble to secure new opportunities, facing dwindling public support amidst ongoing controversies with the royal family. Since they departed from senior royal duties in January 2020 and their subsequent move to the United States, the couple has sought to carve out a new life away from the intense scrutiny of the British press.

Their marriage in 2018 heralded a new chapter, and they currently reside in a lavish Montecito, California mansion with their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet. In pursuit of financial independence, Harry and Meghan entered into high-profile agreements with Netflix and Spotify shortly after settling in America.

These deals were part of their strategy to establish a profitable presence in Hollywood. Despite the initial promise, their partnership with Spotify dissolved last year amid signs of waning public interest. Furthermore, their Netflix collaboration is set to conclude in 2025, and to date, the Sussexes have only released a limited number of projects with the streaming service, told Express-News.

The publication of Harry’s tell-all book, “Spare,” added fuel to the fire of his already strained relations with the royal family, particularly with his father, King Charles, and his brother, Prince William. This move did little to endear him to royal enthusiasts, further isolating the couple from the support they once enjoyed.

Despite rumors of potential reconciliation efforts with the royal family, following significant health procedures undergone by Kate Middleton and Charles, the familial bonds appear to remain fractured. Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams expressed to mirror that Harry and Meghan’s reliance on public critiques of the Royal Family for media attention might not be a sustainable strategy.

He suggested that they need to explore alternative avenues to maintain their public profile. The Sussexes’ criticisms of the monarchy have been linked to their declining popularity, and recent attempts to reinvigorate interest in their Hollywood endeavors have proven challenging.

A notable effort to regain footing in the entertainment industry was their attendance at the premiere of “Bob Marley: One Love” in Jamaica, an event they were personally invited to by Brian Robbins, the CEO of Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon, and a friend of the couple. This appearance is seen as part of a broader strategy to re-establish connections within the industry as their existing contracts approach their end.

Fitzwilliams highlighted the couple’s relatively quiet presence in the public domain, aside from their involvement with the Invictus Games, an initiative Prince Harry was associated with before his move to the US. With the Spotify partnership already dissolved and the future of their Netflix deal uncertain, the commentator pondered the couple’s next moves and their silence on future projects, emphasizing the critical juncture at which the Sussexes find themselves as they navigate their post-royal life and professional endeavors.
