*Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have revealed their list of requirements for online speaking engagements. 

The Telegraph obtained a copy of the virtual request form from the firm representing the couple, New York-based Harry Walker Agency. A source told Newsweek the form was “pretty standard for high-level clients at HWA.”

Among the requirements, organizers must give details of any sponsors and “what they are receiving in return for their sponsorship,” even before issuing an invitation to the couple. 

A full list of who will be in the audience must also be provided and the couple’s fee — said to be up to $1 million — must be known in advance.

The rules stipulate that “the fee will need to be paid directly from the contracting organization’s account.”

Moderators must also be cleared Harry and Meghan. 

“The choice of introducer and moderator will be at the final discretion of the speaker,” The Telegraph reported.

The form also asks, “What will the audience see on screen? Will you incorporate any branding? What will the speaker see on screen prior to and during their presentation?”

Additionally, the form asks: “If you were to lose one or more of the above sponsors, would your organization still be able to move forward with this event?”

A contingency plan must also be in place for connectivity issues.

A source close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told Vanity Fair that they intend to uphold the values of the monarch in any private work they do.

“Part of the discussions they had with the family is that they would make sure any future work opportunities that will earn them a living will be in keeping with what is expected of the family,” the source said.

Prince Harry recently repaid $3 million to U.K. taxpayers for the funds used on renovations to the couple’s Frogmore Cottage at Windsor. According to reports, he is no longer reliant on any financial support from his father Prince Charles.

*Michael B. Jordan is producing a movie based on the DC and Milestone Comics character Static, popularly known as Static Shock. 

Jordan announced the project Friday on Twitter, which he will produce through his Warner Bros.-based Outlier Society production company.

Here’s what Variety says of the plot: “The character is a teen who transforms into a superhero with electromagnetic powers. A “Static Shock” animated series aired on Kids’ WB in the early 2000s and was one of the few superhero series starring a Black character.”

“I’m proud to be a part of building a new universe centered around Black superheroes; our community deserves that,” Jordan said in a statement. “Outlier Society is committed to bringing to life diverse comic book content across all platforms and we are excited to partner with Reggie and Warner Bros. on this initial step.”

Virgil Hawkins, a.k.a. Static Shock, was created by Milestone Media and DC Comics in the 1990s. Jordan will produce a movie adaptation of the comic book, which was unveiled by Reginald Hudlin during August’s DC FanDome.

“One of the things we’re really excited about, we really want to live up to the name of the company, Milestone Media,” said Hudlin. “When we spoke to Jim [Lee] about reviving the Milestone line, we said ‘Look, we all know this has been a hit comic book and hit animated series. It’s time to expand back into all those areas and then some.’ So we’re in serious conversations about, as we’re launching the comic book series, developing the ‘Static Shock’ movie. That will be a theatrical feature film.”

During the DC FanDome panel where the film’s development was announced, Phil LaMarr, who voiced Static on the animated series in the early 2000s, said, “Virgil is what I always wanted as a comic book kid growing up: Black Spider-Man. A good story can make you live it, feel it, and when it does, it resonates on a whole other level….It touched on archetypes as a comic fan that I loved, but also touched on my life as a Black man in the real world.”

Jordan will next appear in the thriller “Without Remorse,” scheduled to be released next year.

*Court documents have been released showing why Bobby Shmurda was denied parole in September. 

We previously reported… the rapper will continue to serve his max prison sentence until December 2021, according to Variety.

Bobby has been locked up since December 2014, when more than 15 defendants were charged with various crimes, including murder, attempted murder and drug dealing. Shmurda was facing a maximum sentence of 8 – 25 years on charges of conspiracy to commit murder, reckless endangerment, and drug and gun possession, EUR previously reported.

TMZ obtained court docs from the parole hearing and board members denied the Bobby’s release after he’s had “multiple” violations in jail. The New York-native is accused of having a shank, fighting, and drug possession.

Here’s more from TMZ:

Shmurda sees his situation differently with transcripts revealing that he made his own case to be freed. He said he doesn’t have impulsive behavior anymore, considers others in his decision-making, and walks away from bad situations when they occur. After telling the parole board that he wants to resume his music career when he’s released and become involved in outreach programs with troubled youth, he also said that he now sees himself as a “leader” rather than a follower. Additionally, he wants to get a high school G.E.D. when he gets out.

Unfortunately, he has to serve his entire seven-year sentence before that happens. 

“Following his Sept. 15, 2020 interview with the Board of Parole, Ackquille Pollard was denied release and given a hold until the maximum expiration of his sentence on December 11, 2021,” a spokesperson from the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision told Complex in September.
