A divorce between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could have a detrimental financial outcome for the couple.
For many, the brand built by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could be in jeopardy if they decide to go their separate ways.
Their partnership has not only strengthened their personal lives but has also proved beneficial to both of them professionally, making a split more complex than a typical Hollywood breakup.
What would happen if Meghan and Harry split up?
The media attention surrounding a hypothetical separation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be intense, making it difficult to handle, especially with their two children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
As relationship expert Louella Alderson explained to The Mirror, “Harry and Meghan make a lucrative team, and their joint ventures have the potential to continue bringing in substantial income for their family.”
If the Sussexes are considering divorce, they could follow the example of celebrity couples like Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and Meryl Streep and Don Gummer: keep the breakup a secret. That’s how the co-founder of the dating app ‘So Syncd’ put it.
The reason? To avoid the inevitable media attention and speculation, while protecting their image and brand.
Harry and Meghan are worth more together
To many observers, Meghan and Harry are worth more married as they bring a lot of financial benefits with their organization, Archewell.
This entity encompasses a non-profit foundation, a podcast production company, and an audiovisual production company.
The Sussexes have had million-dollar deals such as the $100 million with Netflix. The $20 million with Spotify for the creation of a podcast, although the outcome of this deal remains a mystery after its early termination.
They have also made a profit with the controversial book ‘Spare’, which, according to the BBC, would have earned them around $18.4 million.
Are Prince Harry and Meghan getting divorced?
Rumors of trouble in paradise have been circulating since the beginning of the year, but it’s crucial to distinguish fact from fiction when it comes to celebrity gossip.
It should be noted that the couple has recently been spotted showing a lot of PDA at events such as the Invictus Games and on their recent romantic getaway to the Caribbean.
The couple has proven to be a lucrative team, and their success in the entertainment world seems to depend largely on their image as a solid couple.
