Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had announced they want to start making their own money while stating they would love to step out from performing senior royal duties. The couple decided to speak on stage at the ‘Alternative Investment Summit’ in Miami last Thursday.
The Duke and Duchess Sussex were paid around £755,000 to attend as critics have blasted the royal couple for accepting the cash. Panellist Bobby Friction said: “On a PR level let’s just think about Prince Charles who is still a member of the Royal Family
“If he went there, we wouldn’t be criticising him in the same way.”
Dawn Neesom added: “Yes, I would because he would have flown there in a private jet like Harry and Meghan did so, don’t give me a lecture on it.”
Mr Friction continued: “I think the way the great British public have reacted to this story wouldn’t be the same because they would have said, ‘well he’s working for the royal family, he’s obviously a learned man’.
“Prince Charles has had a lot of experience, ‘let him do that’.
“But JP Morgan are really the wrong people to be getting into bed with.”
JP Morgan has reportedly spent around £152billion on firms that support and carry out fracking and Arctic oil and gas exploration, as well as other fossil fuel endeavours.
This goes against what the Prince Harry And Meghan Markle say they believe in, having previously said that “fossil fuel emissions were jeopardising” the Earth.
Mr Vine then joined the conversation to raise the point about Prince Harry discussing his mental health at this event.
The host said: “I don’t want to sound judgmental here.
“But Harry has obviously had a very bad experience with his own mental health and he wants to share that experience to help people. That is fine, but don’t just share it with bankers, that is the key thing.”
Ms Neesom agreed and continued: “Exactly, these are all people that are very rich and influential.
“From what I can work out, a lot of them have been involved in some very dodgy dealings. It was just the wrong people.”
