The Palace denies claims The Sussexes are working with Kim Kardashian’s endorsement company

Buckingham Palace has broken its silence, saying the reports that the couple is working with Sheeraz Inc. are “categorically untrue”.

Since the confirmation that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would be stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family, a number of rumours have circulated about what could be coming up in the calendar for the couple.

From rumours that Meghan would star in her best friend Jessica Mulroney’s reality TV show (not true) to speculation that she will return to Hollywood to try and re-pursue acting, the latest news is that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly working with Sheeraz Inc., an endorsement firm that works with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez, to arrange brand appearances and deals.

Taking to Instagram, the company claimed it was accepting offers for Harry and Meghan captioning an image of the couple: “Sheeraz, Inc is now taking appearance and endorsement request 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.”

Following the post, shared over the weekend, a spokesperson from Buckingham Palace told The Sun the claims made by the company’s Instagram are “categorically untrue”, however despite the Palace’s strong denial, the post has remained up on Sheeraz Inc.’s account.

Since the Palace broke their silence denying the claims, the company released an official statement on Twitter, maintaining it was telling the truth.

“Always remember Meghan Markle was an actress in Hollywood before becoming a Princess,” Sheeraz Hasan, the company’s founder wrote.

“Now she is coming back to LA and of course I have been in contact with her inner team for brand 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.”

The statement followed a previous tweet claiming a client based in Dubai had offered a $2 million cash offer to Prince Harry and Meghan for a mall appearance and meet and greet.

As part of stepping back as senior members of the royal family and no longer receiving money from the Sovereign Grant, Prince Harry and Meghan have the ability to accept commercial opportunities, something they were unable to do when receiving public funding.

While the couple will be supported by Prince Charles’ Duchy of Cornwall for at least the next year – a review of the couple’s decision will take place in around 12 months – Harry and Meghan have maintained they wish to be “financially independent” and just how that shapes up remains to be seen.
