After deciding to go it alone, it would be fair to assume that the recently married couple are now in the job market. Both Harry and Megan have long CV’s thanks to their respective roles in the military and the acting industry.
It is unclear as to whether the couple will still receive an income from the the Royal family whether it be officially from Her Majesty or from Prince Charles’ Trust. Nevertheless, Prince Harry has pledged to dedicate his life “to supporting the causes, charities and military communities” which are important to him.
But there has been a lot of speculation as to where Harry and Megans careers will lead to next. With this in mind we have put together a list of realistic and not so realistic job opportunities for the pair:
Having recently attempted to trademark the name Sussex Royal it would suggest the pair intend to release their own brand. This may come in the form of hoodies, baseball caps, designer homeware and a variety of other merchandise. And of course all of these goods will need to be marketed. With over 11 million followers on Instagram alone it’s likely Harry and Megan will be spending a lot of time on social media. With the likes of Kylie Jenner earning over $1 million per post from sponsored collaborations, the newly independent couple may also succumb to promoting all sorts of other products and brands.
Having originally found fame via her acting career, it would make sense for Megan to re-enter the film and TV industry should the pair fall on hard times. Staring in series such as Suits and CSI Miami, it is unlikely that Megan will be short of offers.
Polar Bear Police
Harry’s new Canadian home combined with his experience in the army would make him a prime candidate for a role in the Polar Bear Police. Northern Canada is overrun with the bears every November. The polar bear police are responsible for patrolling towns to ensure that the hungry bears are kept out. Harrys previous experience with a rifle may come in handy as the police carry scare pistols that shoot sparks and screamers to deter the bears.
Warden of the Swans
Should the couple decide to live in the UK and Harry wish to still keep some ties with the Queen, then the role of the Warden would be ideal. The capital’s swan keeper, alongside the marker of swans, are part of the Royal Household and are responsible for conducting the annual census of swans that are owned and protected by the Queen.
Ever wondered who decides what films go in what categories? Netflix have a 30 strong team who are expected to watch films and TV shows before they are released. Each show is then tagged and categories. Harry and Megan would no longer have to worry about the intrusive media as they would be wrapped up inside watching Netflix.
Should the couple decide to look for a more regular style job, then we have a wide range of roles to fill.
