Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made a fortune from the public display of family drama in the docuseries Harry & Meghan. However, the memoir of the Duke of Sussex, Spare, plays a huge role in multiplying that fortune. It has recently become the fastest-selling book in the non-fiction genre.

One question that popped into everyone’s mind when the couple separated from the British royals was, “how are they going to survive financially?” However, it appears that they have it all figured out, as evidenced by multi-million dollar deals with platforms such as Netflix and Spotify. The question now is, how are they planning on spending the money?

What are Harry and Meghan planning to do with their money?
The Netflix deal netted the Sussexes a whopping $100 million, and Prince Haz’s memoir is constantly breaking new ground and adding millions to their net worth. Now it is totally their decision as to how they plan to spend the money, but one thing that will happen for sure is that the couple will use a significant sum of the profit to make changes to the Archewell Foundation.
To be specific, the money will be used to promote the old staff while also hiring some new members. According to Hello!, the broadcast media executive of the brand, Serena Regan, will soon acquire the position of Head of Podcasts. Her new job will be to manage Meghan Markle’s Spotify podcast Archetypes which is famous for its discussions on social issues with a variety of guests.

The new members include Shauna Nep, who will join the foundation as its new co-executive director. Miranda Barbot has been appointed as director of global communications and press secretary, while Maren Thomas has been appointed as manager of communications.
However, Ben Browning and Fara Taylor, who were present with the foundation since the beginning, will part ways by the year’s end. Browning served Archewell as the content head, whereas Taylor was responsible for the marketing of the docuseries and podcast.
