Buckingham Palace rarely comments on stories, but in the weeks following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s decision to step down as senior royal family members, the Palace has been speaking out more to set the record straight on their future. This weekend, the Palace responded to reports circulating that Meghan and Harry are now working with Sheeraz Inc., an endorsement firm that works with clients like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, and Zendaya to arrange brand deals and appearances.
Sheeraz boldly claimed on its Instagram that it is accepting offers for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The company wrote, “Sheeraz, Inc is now taking appearance and endorsement requests for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle @sussexroyal Sheeraz, Inc clients from Middle East, India, US and Asia can send us official offers and we will take them directly to their representatives.”

Buckingham Palace told The Sun that Meghan and Harry working with Sheeraz Inc., as indicated by the company’s Instagram, is “categorically untrue.” Despite the Palace’s denial, the Instagram remains on Sheeraz’s page.
The company posted a response to the Palace’s denial on its Instagram Story and Twitter, insisting that Meghan is definitely still working with them. “Always remember Meghan Markle was an actress in Hollywood before becoming a Princess,” Sheeraz Inc.’s founder Sheeraz Hasan wrote. “Now she is coming back to LA and of course I have been in contact with her inner team for brand and appearances deals as I have a global network of buyers for talent. When celebrities need global media or global brand opportunities, I always get the calls.”
Perhaps most telling is Meghan and Harry’s lack of response to all of this. Silence speaks volumes.
