The topic of the day. On the occasion of the release of his memoirs entitled The substitute (backup), Prince Harry has given some rare interviews. If these statements are as loud as they are intimate, they suggest the mechanics ofa lucrative business for the ever Duke of Sussex. In January 2020, Harry and Meghan have decided to take their independence, and above all financial. Retaining their label of prince, duke and duchess, they are no longer active members of the royal family.
As such, the couple had to give up some resources. The publication of Harry’s book precedes the distribution of the Netflix documentary series, reiterating the Sussex couple’s grievances with the British royal family. Since their departure from Buckingham, Harry and Meghan have criticized the treatment meted out to them at the royal palace and their family. They decided to make it their livelihood.
Why are we talking about this? How can this great unboxing serve Harry? Do we even have an idea of what he gets out of it economically? Is this a way to secure his lifestyle?
Quote. “Officially there is no money exchange around these interviews, they are not monetized. They are promotional interviews for his book. But it is obvious that there is a lot of money because according to the contract of the Penguin House, the publishing house, has already received 20 million euros. There have been 17 million copies in circulation and we know that about $5 is made on each copy. Since the publishing house sells 1.3 million hard copies and 400,000 digital copies, it is covering its costs. And from that moment, Harry gets money again. There is really a lot of money involved and they have a sizable lifestyle that requires a lot of spending. So it’s obvious that they have an interest in things going very well,” he explains Adelaide of Clermont-Tonnerre,
editorial director of the magazine Point of view.
