Prince Harry’s discussions with financial giant Goldman Sachs — and his recent appearance at a JPMorgan summit — are the initial steps by the ex-royal to land lucrative gigs on the paid talking circuit, sources near the two banks disclosed to The Post.
A source near Goldman Sachs affirmed that the bank has been in chats with the Duke of Sussex to do one of its “Talk at GS” speaker series in London — making it clear those appearances are unpaid.
In any case, the talking engagements will serve as a launching pad, and help the prince consider going all in, network and develop his portfolio to make way for future paid appearances, the sources said.
As per the Mirror, Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, have been in converses with Goldman Sachs about the bank’s speaker series since November — well before the couple’s divorce from Britain’s royal family in January.
The Duke and Duchess as of now make them talk significantly under their belts.
Prior this month they were keynote speakers at a swanky JPMorgan summit on South Beach in Miami.
A representative for Buckingham Palace told the Mirror, “We do not comment on the Duke or Duchess’ private schedule.”
