Meghan Markle and Prince Harry slammed for new banking job as they 'know ZERO about finance', blast experts

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have been slammed for their new banking job because they "know ZERO" about finance, an expert has blasted.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex yesterday revealed they had signed up to become "impact partners" and investors at sustainable investing firm Ethic.

They said in a statement they want more people to "have a seat at the table when decisions are made" and vowed to "rethink the nature of investing" to help solve global issues.

It is unclear how much expertise is required for the partnership, which is the latest in a series of lucrative deals for Meghan and Harry.

But Royal biographer Angela Levin says the couple are "not financiers" and they "know zero".

She told GB News: "They want to come back [to the UK] every now and again and either film what they're doing or have grievances to talk about when they come back home, but it will keep them up as royals.

"The longer they're away and don't come to the UK, interest in them will diminish because they haven't got up-to-date understanding of what's going on.

"They're quite clever with that – they want to keep one finger on the Royal Family in the UK just so they can be attached to companies they know nothing about and can't give them anything – they're not financiers, they know zero – but their names will help them do it and earn pots of money."

Harry told Oprah Winfrey earlier this year that he started to make financial deals with companies like Netflix and Spotify after being "cut off" by his family financially.

According to reports, he and Meghan were introduced to Ethic by a friend.

In a statement yesterday, the couple said: “When we invest in each other we change the world…

“Be it through the investment of time (as with mentoring), investment in community (as with volunteering), or in the investment of funds (for those who have the means to), our choices – of how and where we put our energy – define us as a global community."

They added: “We believe it's time for more people to have a seat at the table when decisions are made that impact everyone.

“We want to rethink the nature of investing to help solve the global issues we all face.

“That is one of the ways we put our values in action.”

Meanwhile, Meghan told BookDeal: “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.

“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?'”

Ethic also posted on Twitter to celebrate the partnership, saying: “We're thrilled to welcome Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as impact partners at Ethic. 

“Together, we are committed to creating a more inclusive, resilient and sustainable future.”
