All eyes are on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they make the shift from royal family members to Hollywood superstars. However, Forbes‘ senior contributor Guy Martin thinks that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have to start being seen doing “serious things” and “seriously good things.” Martin suggests that Harry and Meghan “desperately need to provide a meaningful narrative to and for their doings,” and adds that they “need to become greater than whatever Netflix turns out as The Harry And Meghan Markle Show, however many installments the thing gets,” in order to be successful.
“They can’t just sit in Montecito and collect contracts. If the story just absolutely has to be about them as it often appears they think it does, then that story has to go somewhere. They have to perform. And: It has to be a certain kind of performance. Worthy, if you will, of royalty,” Martin writes, alluding to the fact that Harry and Meghan have inked some great deals, but the world hasn’t seen much come out of those deals just yet. It seems that Harry and Meghan’s brand isn’t in trouble just yet — but it could be. The couple simply needs to make the right moves — and soon — according to Martin.
