Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Move Into Banking
Oct 13, 2021 by apost team
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had a huge year in 2021, and their traction seems like it will continue in 2022. After having their second child, their year got even bigger, making it on TIME's Most Influential People list and landing one of the seven magazine covers.
Following a very busy six months — which included their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, the birth of their first daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on June 4, the release of Markle's bestselling first children's book "The Bench" mere days later, the release of Harry's television series with Winfrey, "The Me You Can't See" and an announcement of his upcoming memoir set for release next year — it's no wonder TIME has chosen them as two of the world's most influential people.
What's resonated with many people about the Sussexes is that they're choosing to speak up on topics that are often left in the dark, such as mental health. They also use their platform, Archewell, to speak with people who often don't have a voice in a bid to bring more equality and kindness into the world.
Despite their efforts to bring about positivity and lead a peaceful and quiet life, the couple still experiences extreme judgment, especially from the British tabloid press.
However, the power partners are still at it, and this time they've announced their move into the banking world. Driven by their desire to change the world, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have put money into an investment firm called 'Ethic.' The firm invests money into other companies that are deemed 'ethical' based on environmental and social goals.
The move into banking comes after a number of milestones for the couple. After shaking the world with their Oprah interview, Harry and Meghan's TIME magazine cover seemed fitting. For their appearance on TIME's esteemed list, the couple posed for a number of photos. The cover photo — which marks the couple's first formal cover photoshoot together — sees Markle wearing a white shirt and pants with Harry leaning on her shoulder dressed in all-black. In another photo, the power couple wears complementary olive looks as they stand in front of a window, while in a third photo, they can be seen walking through nature as they smile at one another.
Their cover is one of seven, while the others include Simone Biles, Billie Eilish, Kate Winslet, writer Cathy Park Hong, director-general of the World Trade Organization Okonjo-Iweala, and Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang. Other notable people who made the list include President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, Selena Gomez, Naomi Osaka, Dr. Anthony Fauci, former President Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter Founders Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi, and others.
The issue hit newsstands on Sep. 17 and for the second year running, was accompanied by a special television event that aired on Sep. 20 on ABC.
Harry and Meghan's commitment to 'Ethic' will be carried out in their role as 'impact partners' at the firm. According to the New Zealand Herald, the couple's move into the banking sector comes after their million-dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify, and their announcement statement said:
"When we invest in each other we change the world."
