This makes little sense to me. If he's now an independent businessman (which is quite a reach) then of course he's going to be making money..why is making money negative if you are a businessman?

Now this I 100% agree with, it is why I have refrained from commenting on anything I have brought to this discussion or anything that i've read about this transition period.

My issue with the above is, currently we do know they're in a transition period where they still hold their HRHs an such. We don't know they're meeting people for their foundation, as you said above we simply don't know. Perhaps it's the cynic in me to assume that they're not, but something about this whole thing is off.

Now I'm fully aware that Sponsors/donors/investors were/are used for The Royal Foundation and The Princes Trust but they have a clear, defined, recorded outcome. We've seen this today with a collaboration (of sorts) between Mrs Gianna Fletcher and The Duchess of Cambridge to promote The Big 5 Questions.

I'm also aware that non royals have their own foundations Bill and Melinda Gates for example, where not everything is in the public domain to analyse and record.

I guess my point is, for me, they should be one or the other. A royal foundation or a non-royal one, what i'm seeing is them using their name to potentially garner support for either their own future income, or support for their foundation. A foundation which we have no definition of whom it will be supporting? If it's their UK charities, why are they supporting them from another country?

This is just me sounding out the thoughts in my own head, and are by no means directed at any one in particular, this post just brought this thoughts to the front of my mind.

...I have no issues with Henry and Meghan Mountbatten-Windsor making money for their own foundation and supporting charities which are close to their hearts. As my post above goes to some length to explain. Right now they're still Prince Harry and The Duchess of Sussex, and whilst they will remain Duke and Duchess after Spring 2020 they are still as we're led to believe members of the RF who are supporting their "foundation" which was primarily formed from their royal days.

My issue, and I think they issue of some on here is that they're treading a fine line between using/abusing what they have.

The timing's unfortunate because some people are getting very sanctimonious about big business at the moment. Roger Federer got a load of hassle last month over his longstanding sponsorship deal with Credit Suisse, because the Holier Than Thou brigade have decided that Credit Suisse's environmental credentials are not perfect. This is not a perfect world, and no organisation that can afford to pay Harry and Meghan or anyone else large sums of money for being "ambassadors" or for making films on You Tube or anything else is likely to be as pure as the driven snow. So they are going to be moaned at. I don't know what the answer to that is. But, if they aren't being funded by Royal Family sources, they will have to make money somehow, and I can't see Prince Harry taking a 9-5 job in a shop or a factory or an office.

because businessmen often attract negative attention. Large scale business can be controversial, cut throat and ruthless and It is likely that someone engaging in commerce will be criticised .

This thread would make for an excellent focus group for the Sussexes. I'm now of the opinion we are all really in the dark on Harry and Meghan's actual plans and alot of what we think we know might just be our own projections. I am, however, excited for their future to unfold!

You are quite right, we Don't know anything. All I can say is that I miss seeing them.

So, to sum up:

Harry will most likely be in the UK for 1 1/2 weeks (from Friday February 28 until Monday March 9) with activities on:
- Feb 28: Invictus Games Choir
- March 5: Endeavour Fund Awards
- March 6: Silverstone Experience
- March 7: Mountbatten Music Festival
- March 9: Commonwealth Day

Meghan will need to be in the UK for 5 days:
- March 5: Endeavour Fund Awards
- March 7: Mountbatten Music Festival
- March 8: International Women's Day
- March 9: Commonwealth Day

I wouldn't be surprised if they would leave Archie back in Canada given the above schedule; unless they extend it to include some more personal or formal visits.

Apparently, Harry will be back in the UK for the London Marathon on April 26; and both will be in the Netherlands in May for the Invictus Games (9 - 16 May).

I really hope they bring Archie, for the sake of the Queen and Prince Philip.

Well technically they're still in the transition period and are still currently "working royals" until March 31. If I'm understanding it correctly these five days will be before that date. It'll be much more interesting to find out how frequently these visits occur after March 31.

These are what’s announced so far. More could be the following week. Who knows? The official end is the 31st.

Some claimed she wouldn’t set fool in the UK at all, so clearly no one knows.

Harry has to be back for almost two weeks. It makes most sense Meghan come with him when he comes. And bring Archie. Unlike their last trip, not only coming for three days. A few weeks won’t be as disrupting for Archie. Meghan has patronage’s to visit including Hubb (such visits wouldn’t be officially announced like the ones we know). She also has friends in the UK. Archie will be comfortable in his old nursery and get to see family.

They may also come back for a few weeks in May. There is less then two weeks between the end of Invictus and Beatrice wedding. They could head over to the Uk after the games for some more family time and patronage work. Go home after the wedding. Harry has been close to the York’s for years. I don’t think he will miss the wedding. And since it’s private he won’t steal thunder. Then go home after they are done.

I haven't clicked on anything that says Sussex since they bailed. I see Kate and William in the cold rain, smiles on their faces, and I think of Harry and Megan in their 14 million dollar mansion, "being homebodies", or their recent engagement in Miami where harry "revealed" his therapy, for how much?? they are gone

I didn't think she'd set foot in the UK so I'm surprised by the five days. I think they should bring Archie - let the Queen and Phillip see him.

Five days? Nothing announced has said she is only going to be in the UK for 5 days.
