Prince Harry and Meghan’s latest addition to their team is none other than Harrison Colcord, the former marketing director of an exclusive hotel near their mansion.
Harrison Colcord previously worked at the prestigious San Ysidro Ranch, where rooms cost between $2,655 and $4,000 a night. Interestingly, this is the same location where Prince Harry conducted his incendiary TV interviews with Oprah Winfrey and Tom Bradby earlier this year to promote his memoir ‘Spare’.
After leaving her position as director of sales and marketing at the San Ysidro Ranch, Miss Colcord’s next move remained a mystery until recently. It has now been revealed that she works for Harry and Meghan, as confirmed by the British owner of bicycle shop Montecito.
The revelation came when the bike shop owner posted a letter from the couple, thanking him and his wife for a free bike they gave Archie on his fourth birthday. The letter, signed by Miss Colcord on behalf of Prince Harry and Meghan’s office, reflects the couple’s gratitude.
It should be noted that Harrison Colcord has a design degree from Appalachian State University in North Carolina, and his sales and marketing expertise likely played a significant role in facilitating events and collaborations involving the Archewell team.
Harry and Meghan’s offices and businesses have been described as a revolving door due to the number of staff who have come and gone over the years. Reports suggest that they have lost 16 staff members since 2018, although their official launch of Archewell and related businesses did not take place until late 2020. This revolving door phenomenon appears to be continuing with the recent departures of Farah Taylor, who ran Productions’ current marketing. team, and Ben Browning, the head of international content.
It should be mentioned that the San Ysidro ranch, where Prince Harry filmed his interviews and where Meghan had a photoshoot and interview for Variety magazine last October, has significant historical value. Winston Churchill stayed there, and it was the honeymoon destination for JFK and Jackie Onassis. This adds another layer of intrigue to Miss Colcord’s previous role and her potential interactions with the royal couple and the Archewell team.
Recently, Harry and Meghan spent an evening with Archewell executives at the LA Lakers game, where they watched from a luxury suite costing up to £12,000. This couple really knows how to combine business with pleasure.
Now let’s talk about the controversy surrounding the bike given to Archie. Martin and Jennifer Blevins, owners of the Mad Dogs and Englishman Bike Shop, personally delivered a specialist bike to Harry and Meghan’s mansion. Some critics argued that the bike should have been given to a less privileged child, while others praised the couple for the kind gesture.
