Following their decision to step down as senior members of the royal family, the couple are said to have been offered a “six-figure sum” to front the bookmaker’s ad for the Euro 2020 football tournament.
It’s said that Harry and Meghan – who are currently thought to be in Canada with son Archie – are “considering” the lucrative offer.
The Daily Star reports that the television ad would poke fun at “Megxit” and joke about fans ditching England for another country if the England football team get knocked out the tournament.
And, while Meghan and Harry’s team are said to be pondering the deal, Paddy Power is thought to be so keen to sign the couple that it is willing to “negotiate”.
Harry and Meghan have been approached by Paddy Power. The idea has been outlined to them. They have been given a ballpark, six-figure fee and they are considering it.
A source said: “Harry and Meghan have been approached by Paddy Power. The idea has been outlined to them. They have been given a ballpark, six-figure fee and they are considering it.”
They added: “It certainly wasn’t a no. It is a long shot, but the ball is in their court.”
Admitting the royal booking is a little “ambitious”, the source said: “It was worth a punt.”
Paddy Power has previously signed Stephen Hawking, Jose Mourinho and Rhodri Giggs to appear in its ads.
Following their split from the royal family, Harry and Meghan are striving to become financially independent, something the reported Paddy Power deal could most certainly assist with.
