Last week, Prince Harry and Meghan were the leading speakers at the JP Morgan conference which experts believe could have won them $1million. According to Daily Mail, Ronn Torossian, CEO of New York-based firm 5W Public Relations, said he expects the couple to have made between $500,000 and $1million (£387,000 and £775,000) from the appearance. “One would imagine they flew privately from Canada to Miami, had a hotel suite, and hair and makeup artist, which could cost $100,000 (£77,000) to $250,000 (£193,000) in expenses,” he said, adding, “Prince Harry and Meghan will be the highest-paid speakers that exist on the corporate market.” Buckingham Palace has not yet made a public announcement about whether the Queen has asked the Duke and Duchess to attend the Commonwealth Service.
