Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would worth less without the other.
Additionally, the values of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in their royal titles.
It was previously reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are being paid millions for their speaking engagements since stepping down as senior working royals.
But brand and reputation management expert Eric Schiffer that their worth is connected to being royalty.
He warned that the public wouldn’t be interested in just plain Harry Wales and Meghan Markle.
Speaking to Express, he said, “If neither of them had royalty ties, there would be zero interest.”
But thanks to their existing ties and Meghan’s past Hollywood life, they have created a link with Tinseltown.
“As a couple, I think we could see a low-to-medium level six figures for speaking engagements,” Schiffer added.
However, their value comes as a collective thing. Individually, they wouldn’t amount to millions if they did separate things together.
“The power is in the couple, not in individuals. In either of the individuals as paid speakers, the value is decimated,” Schiffer explained.
Moreover, the expert believes that Prince Harry would have a higher value because of where he comes from.
While Meghan’s value is only amplified now because of her royal heritage and the controversial things that followed after stepping down as a senior royal family member.
It is unknown if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already taken part in their paid speaking engagement after signing with Harry Walker agency.
Most of their engagements have been moved or canceled to online platforms due to the coronavirus pandemic.
