The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed on with a high-profile agency in the United States for speaking engagements, who represent Michelle and Barack Obama and Hillary and Bill Clinton. As first reported in the Los Angeles Times, Prince Harry and Meghan have chosen the New York – based Harry Walker Agency to represent them, as they carve out their new roles after stepping back from royal life in March.

It’s understood that the couple will be engaging in keynote speeches with trade associations, corporations and community forums in future. Harry and Meghan will reportedly continue to focus on social issues such as racial injustice, gender equality, mental health and environmental concerns.

Back in February, Harry and Meghan attended a private JP Morgan event in Miami, where the Prince reportedly spoke about mental health and the impact of losing his mother Princess Diana as a young boy.

The Harry Walker Agency, which was established in 1946, was acquired by Endeavour last year- the parent company of WME Speakers. HWA’s clients also include Harry and Meghan’s close friend Oprah Winfrey and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall.

Details of the Sussexes’ non-profit organization Archewell are expected to be unveiled in the coming months. Harry and Meghan are currently residing at $17 million maison owned by actor Tyler Perry in the Beverly Estate of LA, after moving to the city from Vancouver Island in Canada in March.
