Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have taken a major professional leap. No, Markle is not answering the call of Suits Nation and going back to acting. And no, Prince Harry is not writing a follow-up memoir called Here’s Who Said What. We’re not that lucky. Instead, they launched a sleek new version of their website. That’s also a huge feat, so please give it up for them.
The couple have dropped the “royal” from Sussexroyal.com and can now be found at Sussex.com. It’s cleaner. A pop-up on their old website reads, “This site was established in 2020 and sets out the work streams of Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex prior to their move to the United States.” It then redirects you to Sussex.com, where the real business is being done.
What is the real business? Well, their “About” section says that the office of Harry and Meghan is “shaping the future through business and philanthropy.” Their bios highlight both their philanthropic work through their Archwell Foundation and their status as creatives (hers in podcasting, his as a memoirist). There’s also a news section, in case you want to know what they’ve been up to recently. Harry gave out the NFL Man of the Year award this month!
I assume they revamped their web presence for the same reason every freelancer does: They were looking for a new gig. If that’s the case, it worked. On Tuesday, it was announced that Meghan had signed a new podcast deal with Lemonada Media. According to Deadline, she’ll be launching a new podcast with the company, which will be distributing her old one, Archetypes, on all podcast platforms.
Take this as your sign to go dust off the ol’ Squarespace account and update your website. You never know when a major podcasting deal is around the corner.
