HARRY and Meghan have parted ways with their US-based PR agency, Sunshine Sachs.

A source told the Daily Mail: “This is a really big deal for Meghan. She takes the view that she doesn’t need to pay an outside firm a lot of money to do PR for her and Harry anymore.”
Sunshine Sachs played a key role when the Sussexes moved to California, allowing them to take advantage of contacts and a network of advisers and celebs.
Morgan, 45, also helped out on the couple’s 2019 African tour, when they were still working Royals.
Publicity will now be handled by their charitable foundation Archewell, where comms are overseen by former Silicon Valley bigwig Christine Schirmer.
It comes after Toya Holness, who was appointed ‘global press secretary’ in March 2021, was parted company with the Sussexes earlier this year.
A Sunshine Sachs spokesman declined to comment.
But a source with knowledge of the company’s relationship with the couple added: “When Sunshine Sachs began working with the Duke and Duchess, the plan was always for it to be temporary until a full-time internal team could be created.
“After they were hired, Sunshine Sachs worked alongside them to help the transition. All sides are on good terms and periodic advisory work continues.”
