Since their announcement in January, the Duke and Duchess have hired independent staff in the United States and Canada to help organise engagements and create their new website.

The couple had previously indicated on their website back in January that they meant to start a new foundation. They are now in Canada but there is speculation that could also spend time in the Los Angeles area, where Meghan was born and raised.

Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, reportedly flew from Vancouver Island, where they've been staying with their 8-month-old son Archie, to Miami last weekend.

The Duchess is also a college graduate having completed a degree at Northwestern University in 2003.

The shock announcement saw The Queen announce that the couple would not be able to use public funds or their royal titles.

According to The Mirror, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been talking to Goldman Sachs since November - well before the couple announced they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family - and a PR guru says that the couple could earn more than $1 billion through corporate deals and brand ambassador roles.

Last week Harry appeared at an event in Miami, sponsored by JP Morgan, where he spoke of his mental health struggles after his mother Princess Diana's death. Furthermore, Harry and Meghan will be doing a round of final royal engagements in the United Kingdom before they head to North America to kickstart their new life with Archie, separated from the Royal Family.

One of the largest protests is the blockade of rail lines near Belleville that has been going on for more than a week, and disrupting VIA rail service.

Harry's last public engagement was an event for his Senetable charity on January 20, just before he left the U.K.to reunite with Meghan and Archie in Canada.

"Earlier this week it was claimed that Harry is in talks with banking giant Goldman Sachs in what is being touted as a "$2 billion deal".

The series will reportedly be broadcast on YouTube.

Royal sources told the Daily Mirror that contact with the U.S. bank started back in November.

Goldman Sachs is an American investment bank that has an online channel titled Talks at GS that invites high-profile people from all industries, including the likes of David Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow, to discuss topics close to their hearts, according to Page Six.

It's alleged Goldman doesn't pay guest speakers, but the series could make it possible for Harry and Meghan to form a lucrative relationship with the firm.
