Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have some specific ground rules when it comes to their virtual speaking engagements! As People shares, the list of required information needed in order for Harry and Meghan to be in attendance at an online event has been revealed, which covers all aspects of the couple's appearance.
Harry and Meghan must know details of hosts and attendees
Harry and Meghan's "Virtual Event Request Form" asks for quite an extensive list of details! The Telegraph reveals that all moderators for discussions are required to be cleared in advance, and the appearance fee must be stated up front. "The choice of introducer and moderator will be at the final discretion of the speaker," The Telegraph shared. Reportedly, it can cost up to $1 million for Harry and Meghan to attend a virtual event!
The itemized list isn't just limited to knowing who's hosting the engagement either, as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex request a full list of all the attendees! It is also imperative to the couple that any organizations taking part in the event are upfront about sponsors who are involved and "what they are receiving in return for their sponsorship." This information is needed even before Harry and Meghan themselves are invited to the event!
Harry and Meghan request details specific to event's technology
Harry and Meghan's extensive request form goes on to address the unique format of virtual events, asking questions specific to their reliance on technology! As The Telegraph mentions, this includes needing to know what sort of contingency plan can be expected if there are issues connecting to the virtual conference.
There are also several questions about the visual component of the event, requesting details about the visuals that will be present throughout. "What will the audience see on screen?" the list asks. "Will you incorporate any branding? What will the speaker see on screen prior to and during their presentation?"
Harry and Meghan signed with a public speaking agency this year
Harry and Meghan have been participating in more public speaking engagements since they stepped back from the royal family! As People mentions, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex signed with the Harry Walker Agency this year, which is a New York-based public speaking organization. And even though they have stepped back from the royal family, the couple has vowed to continue upholding Queen Elizabeth II's values in their new life!
Both Harry and Meghan have spoken at several events during quarantine! Harry recently delivered an inspiring speech to athletes, while Meghan made some political remarks during an event that celebrated the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. And in August, the couple also made a joint appearance in a video call from their new Santa Barbara home as they talked to youth leaders about cultivating a positive online environment!
