Sought privacy, but it may be that where you fall in the ostracism. Meghan Markle and Henry of England, give these days their first steps in their new independent life, without the terrible weight that, apparently, was for them the title of Royal Highnesses. From Tuesday 31 of march, the dukes of Sussex —that title yes it will continue, to be a wedding gift of Elizabeth II— they fly alone. And you alone will have to live. It will not be easy, nor cheap. Not for a couple that needs a home, bodyguards, assistants, agents, press and other entourage, and additionally installed at the other end of the world. Its social cost and reputational’s not going to be cheap: of belonging to a family more respected in the world will be famous more in the ecosystem of Los Angeles, looking for a job, a hole in a red carpet or a unique that, until now, that is not needed, but that were rejected.
According to the calculations of experts, the independence it’s going to be the face of Sussex, or to anyone who from now on will keep them. It will not be the public purse of the british, nor Donald Trump, who gave them a dry welcome to your domain in a tweet, and after this they were dispatched with a “united States will not pay for your safety. Who will pay for them!”.
The cost of these desires of independence is difficult to gauge, but experts in the royal family talk in the british media that it will require an initial investment of approximately eur 30 million. To begin with, a home as they would want and in Bel Air or Malibu, where apparently people are now living with their son Archie, can easily exceed 25 million euros. And then there is the question of security. Is deck that the duke and duchess are speaking with one of the main companies in the sector, which manages the bodyguard of the famous of Hollywood, providing services to the Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt: his price is around 500 euros per professional per day. Only in security would spend more than € 4.5 million per year.
The portfolio of Carlos of England will be there, at least at the beginning. The prince of Wales will help his son, his daughter-in-law and grandson, at least during the first year, until they snap and have how to earn a living. It is estimated that it could bring something more than two million euros. In addition, Enrique has the inheritance of his mother, Diana, and Markle with the income of his era actress. But it will not be enough.
Enrique will be the public relations of brands and organizations that produce media content (as it already does), take part in lectures, or write books, to the beneficial style of the obamas. Markle, for his part, has already begun to move. The April 3 premiere of Disney+ the documentary The elephants, the original factory, whose narration makes the duchess. The dubbing was performed in London last autumn. But this story about the transit of a family of elephants by the Kalahari desert, and the participation in it of Meghan Markle, has already been described as a little sentimental, cheesy or atildada by the specialized media, which barely qualified with two or three stars on five.
In any case, it is a first step to the new life of the duchess of Sussex, that could become a part of the factory Disney, or contemplate other offers: one of the creators of The Simpsons he says that he would love to have it to put a voice to your character. Will rain down offers: an executive of a media and owner of a major public relations agency of Canada explained a couple of weeks ago in local media that they were “swamped” of “offers very powerful” for Markle, and that this could get into it 100 million euros a year.
The dukes may not have the structures of the palace. As they have fired the staff at his residence, Frogmore Cottage, and its office in London, will have to find another new team in California and Canada, where they will live. Already have a move to: the Elizabeth St. Laurent. This professional with more than 15 years of experience has worked at the Gates Foundation and then to the own to Melinda Gates in their organization is Pivotal Ventures. Has been with them for eight years and until a few days ago, when he said goodbye to his team with a loving message where it was announced that became “the chief of staff and executive director of the foundation” of the dukes of Sussex.
A foundation that, right now, is on pause. The events have not permitted its release, scheduled for the first days of April. The crisis of the coronavirus has slowed a little the plans of the dukes but this, that you need logistics, staff and resources, has not had more remedy than to put on pause.
Even so, the couple has not stopped. A decision that strikes a blow to those who know Henry of England. One of their biógrafas, Angela Levin, has published a harsh article in the Tatlerthe favorite magazine of high society, british, expressing his pain and disappointment at the decision taken by the Sussex. “It is terribly sad to have to say it, but according to have passed the weeks, the behavior of Henry and Meghan has been increasingly selfish. One would have thought that in his last days as part of the british royal family would keep their grace and dignity,” says Levin.
As says the biographer, “his choice of priorities is more like that of a teenage capricious that to the adult of thirty years or so”. “I see a Henry sour, numb, stressed. Just recognize that, and I think that on the inside is broken from having to leave his country, his family and his military ties. Maybe you try to deal with it by focusing their resentment on the fact that they have supposedly been abandoned by his family,” says the expert.
Or an unprecedented planetary crisis has slowed their plans. The dukes have taken the decision to leave until the last consequences, regardless of the pandemic of the coronavirus that plagues the world and in need of leaders visible for you to make decisions, show support and give comfort, a role that would be tailor-made for Henry. His grandmother, Elizabeth II, with whom he maintains a loving relationship, it will meet 93-year-old days while isolated in her beloved Windsor castle with her husband, the duke of Edinburgh, 98. His father, Charles England, 71, just completed the insulation after passing the coronavirus. His brother, William, is the visible face of the institution and plans to even return to his job as a helicopter pilot to help. Henry and Meghan, meanwhile, are blurred, as a profile of Instagram in pause, like a couple of famous no more in the jungle of Los Angeles
