Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are thought to have hired one of Hollywood's top dealmakers to help boost their income.
After making a small fortune criticising the Royal Family in their tell all Netflix docs-series and Harry's memoir, Spare, the couple are thought to be looking at new ways to make money.
It's been claimed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are eager not to speak further in public about their strained relationship with the monarchy, leaving them with a need for new projects to continue earning an income.

Now they are said to have been introduced to venture capitalist Adam Lilling.
The serial entrepreneur first made his name when he founded Pentagon CDs, an online internet and music enterprise which was bought out by Virgin in 1999, and has since gone on to launch a number of other successful businesses.
In 2012 Forbes named him as one of the "12 Entrepreneurs Who Are Changing LA Forever" and in December 2022 The Hollywood Reporter listed him as one of the "top dealmakers" of the year.
Lilling was introduced to the Sussexes earlier this month when Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi's renewed their wedding vows, according to US publication Page Six.
The Duke and Duchess were among just a small number of close friends and relatives to be invited to the ceremony.
Lilling has previously spoken publicly about the way he helps connect celebrities with individuals who have interesting business proposals.
"Our mission is to take people who can affect change in the world and marry them with the top operators and entrepreneurs," he said in a media interview last year.
"We’re not really focused on their entertainment endeavours.
