Harry and wife Meghan Markle moved to the Californian city earlier this year after officially stepping down as senior royals. The couple have been photographed carrying out various charitable volunteering work in the months since they settled in LA, but last week it was claimed the Sussexes have not yet generated income since the move.
Now, royal author Tom Quinn has questioned what Prince Harry will be able to do to in terms of his US career.
Mr Quinn told the Daily Star: “What’s his role? He can’t take the Labrador for a walk every day for the rest of his life. He can’t get a job in McDonald’s or for an investment bank, what’s he going to do?
“I’m not saying Harry absolutely hates it in America but having got there, Harry does feel slightly lost because he is now experiencing in America what Meghan was experiencing here”.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior royals in March in order to live more independently from the Royal Family and to escape media intrusion, according to their bombshell official statement.
Mr Quinn added Meghan’s “positive energy” would “sweep Harry along”, but wondered what the Duke would do now that he is in America.
A representative for the Prince responded to Mr Quinn’s claims, labelling them as “nonsense”.
The couple had previously set out their intentions to become privately funded, “with permission to earn their own income”.
Last week, another royal commentator, Katie Nicholl, told Entertainment Tonight the Sussexes had recently signed up to a booking agency that could potentially generate a high income for the couple from guest appearances.
They were both kitted in coronavirus safety measures, including blue bandanas as face coverings and hand sanitiser.
And last week, it was reported the couple had officially shut down their former Sussex Royal charity organisation amid plans to begin work on a new one.
A source told fashion and beauty news site Harper’s Bazaar: “Paperwork has been filed with Companies House and the Charity Commission to formally close the charity down”.
