In a film about working with young people to improve the digital world, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry presented a unified face in their garden today.
The Duke and Duchess called the US recipients of the first Responsible Technology Youth Power Fund (RTYPF) awards as a surprise to thank them, despite their declining popularity and concerns about the future plans of “Brand Sussex.”
Harry, 38, also addressed their two young children, Lilibet, 2, and Archie, 4, in a phone call to a winner, saying, “Thank you for all that you do. Our children in particular are really appreciative. The 41-year-old Meghan said, “They don’t know it yet, but they will!”
The couple’s partnership with Spotify terminated in June, there have been questions about the future of their Netflix agreement, and Harry’s green travel initiative Travalyst made a significant statement about a major redesign in May without mentioning him.
Meghan’s popularity dropped to -47 in June, according to a YouGov poll, the lowest it has been since polling on the subject started in 2017. Harry’s popularity dropped to -36.
The RTYPF, not the couple, released today’s tape, which shows slick video of them conversing at their £12 million estate in Montecito, California.
The Duke chose brown trousers and a white shirt for a smart-casual look, while the Duke’s wife, who celebrates 42 this Friday, wore a $189 camel sleeveless blouse and matching $162 skirt from Malibu company Bleusalt, which she accessorized with understated gold earrings.
Their presence coincides with the couple’s announcement that they will go to the Invictus Games in Düsseldorf, Germany, together, from September 9 to September 16. It is unknown at this point whether the pair will go to the UK.
The clip was also made public as a source with knowledge of Archetypes production stated their Spotify arrangement was terminated early because of excessive red tape that “moved very slowly.”
