MEGXIT: Prince Harry reportedly talking to US banking giant as he & Meghan may earn £1B in corporate deals

PRINCE Harry is reportedly in talks with banking giant Goldman Sachs as he and Meghan are tipped to earn £1billion in corporate deals.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, has discussed working with the controversial US finance firm, reports the Mirror.

Sources told the publication that the couple first made contact with the company in November, which was when they said they were going to leave the royal family.

Goldman doesn’t pay its guest speakers for the series but could pave the way for the Sussexes to forge a l­ucrative relationship, according to the Mirror.

In 2016, Goldman agreed to pay a $5billion settlement for its role in the 2008 financial crisis.

And now a PR expert has suggested they may earn £1billion in corporate deals and brand ambassador roles, with Harry possibly becoming a guest speaker at the bank’s Talks at GS.

It comes after Harry last week appeared at an event sponsored by JP Morgan in Miami – at which he told of his struggles following his mother’s death.

Goldman, and JP Morgan, were accused of piling debt on thousands of ­homeowners with toxic ­mortgages while also making tens of billions in revenue a year.

Experts believe JP Morgan paid the Sussexes up to £775,000 for attending the Alternative Investment event in Miami.

But the couple were blasted last for going to a summit hosted by a bank that finances fossil fuel firms.

The couple, who were making their first engagement since their split from the Royal family, have railed against “fossil fuel emissions . . . jeopardising” the Earth.

The Duke and Duchess  have spoken of a “ticking clock” to save the planet.

Yet JP Morgan has been accused of pumping £61billion into companies behind fracking and Arctic oil and gas exploration.

US charity Rainforest Action Network made the claim three months before last week’s Miami summit in its Banking on Climate Change 2019 report.

PR guru Mark Borkowski said Harry and Meghan’s association with JP Morgan was “not the best look”.

He added: “How they accept money, and from whom, is going to be a challenge going forward.”

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said: “They need to be careful.
