Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: Will their net worth keep them together?
Meghan Markle & Prince Harry haven’t had the easiest time during their marriage. With tabloids questioning their every move, it must be hard for the family to get a moment’s peace. However, they’re able to live a life of luxury thanks to their shared net worth allegedly over $30 million.
Could Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s marriage be hitting the rocks? What about their net worth? Here’s everything you need to know.
Prince Harry & Meghan Markle met on a blind date and began dating officially in 2016. Even since the beginning, the press wasn’t forgiving of the couple. A statement was released on behalf of the role stating, “It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. This is not a game – it is her life & his.”
The following year, the loved up couple announced their engagement to the public in 2017. “I think both of us were totally surprised by the reaction, after the five to six months we had to ourselves, of what actually happened from then,” Prince Harry had stated in an interview with the BBC.
The world watched as Meghan Markle walked down the aisle looking gorgeous and having a royal wedding that many children dream of. They merged their finances when they decided against a prenuptial agreement before their wedding. Many noticed that Prince Charles walked Markle down the aisle instead of her father. This was due to tabloids attempting a character assassination of the seventy-three-year-old.
After what felt like months of back & forth with the media, the couple announced they were expecting their first child. On May 6, 2019, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born and the world watched on. This year, it was announced Prince Harry & Meghan Markle would be resigning from royal duties following years of harsh critics.
How are they coping since the royal split?
Money, money, money
Due to the tragic death of his mother Princess Diana, Prince Harry was left with an accumulation of funds totaling between twenty-five to forty million. The money came from an inheritance left by Princess Diana’s queen mother which reportedly included her jewels.
Prince Harry also received money from his former job as captain in the British Army earning around fifty thousand according to Forbes.
Meghan Markle is estimated to have a net worth of five million. Surely, it’s not as grand as Prince Harry considering he’s royalty. Markle was receiving an income of around $500,000 while starring in the U.S. TV drama Suits along with money via endorsement deals & sponsorships.
Since the pair are currently residing in Los Angeles after resigning from royal duties, they have decided to pursue passion projects in an attempt to add more money to their net worth. Prince Harry & Meghan Markle signed a multiyear deal with Netflix for a project currently unknown.
When they gave up their titles earlier this year, they also gave up a “sovereign grant” provided by the treasury which was meant to fund their lifestyle. It’s no wonder they hope to increase their net worth through other means.
It’s been revealed that Prince Harry & Meghan Markle won’t be returning to England for Christmas and will be staying in the U.S. indefinitely. Could the grass really be greener for them? It looks like it since the pair appear to be moving from strength to strength despite recent claims made by tabloids.
