Meghan and Harry have announced their latest vague philanthropic effort continues as the couple becomes the latest “impact partners” for “ethical” investment firm, which is ironically called Ethic. As with everything they do, it’s unclear what their role is and whether they even had enough money to invest or what they were getting for the announcement.
In a statement, the two said, “When we invest in each other we change the world.”
Meghan was also featured in a New York Times article, stating, “From the world I come from, you don’t talk about investing, right? You don’t have the luxury to invest. That sounds so fancy.”
What world Meghan is talking about is unclear. She’s currently living in a $14 million mansion with her husband and two children, with nannies, cooks, house cleaners and other people paid to serve their every need. She could be talking about her childhood, where her father invested most of his money in her education.
It was clearly a bad investment, at least for him. Now Meghan brags that she achieved everything on her own.
She went onto write, “My husband has been saying for years: ‘Gosh, don’t you wish there was a place where if your values were aligned like this, you could put your money to that same sort of thing?’”
Yeah, that sounds like something that Harry, who doesn’t even understand the First Amendment of the United States, would say.
Not to mention the fact that the couple have known each other barely five years, how many years have they really been discussing how they would invest their portfolio? No doubt Meghan was anxious to get Harry to invest his money into Meghan’s various endeavors.
And, like everything associated with Harry and Meghan, it’s clear that their “philanthrope” is jumping onto every bandwagon imaginable, without a clear vision for what they want their post royal life to look like.
Is it about climate change? Mental health? Black Lives Matter? Equity? Vaccines? Being pseudo royals and influencers? Documentaries with Netflix? Uplifting podcasts with Spotify? Archewell?
The couple have managed to score several major deals, but as someone who has a background in marketing and branding, the purpose of all of this is rather vague. However, it could be argued that everything they’re doing has one very clear motive.
Every deal struck is about securing them as much money as they can as quickly as they can. It’s not about helping anyone else but making as big of stink as they can to let the public know that Harry and Meghan care, if you can pay them enough to.
That’s why, while all of their wheeling and dealing might sound impressive, it’s hollow. They have no direction, and they have no vision. If they did, they would focus on one thing, maybe two, and build up a brand so that they can do more. They could also do most things rather privately. That every deal is seemingly designed to hit the front page means that it’s all more about the benjamins than it is about helping anyone except themselves.
