Far from the United Kingdom, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have put their bags down in the United States. If they stayed for a while with their friend Tyler Perry in Los Angeles, they have just bought a mansion worth 11.2 million pounds in Montecito, near Santa Barbara. If the latter measures more than 1,675 square meters and has nine bedrooms, sixteen bathrooms, a library, an office, a spa with a sauna, a gym, a games room, a projection room, a wine cellar as well as a garage for five cars, it may cost them dearly in maintenance! While the duo has already paid a deposit of 3.8 million, it still has 7 million to repay over thirty years at 34,750 pounds per month, or 417,000 pounds per year. While they will also have to pay a property tax of 52,000 pounds per year, it is becoming urgent that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get to work!
The massive spending means the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will have to start making money or using their personal fortune, which is said to be estimated at £ 23million. Royal finance expert David McClure told UK site The Sun: “I’m surprised they can afford anything. They have to start making money fast.” During her acting career, Meghan Markle is said to have raised 3.8 million pounds. Prince Harry, for his part, owns £ 19.2million, including an inheritance from Princess Diana and an annual stipend from Prince Charles.
How will the duo make money?
Since moving, Prince William’s brother is known to have made a paid appearance at a JP Morgan all-star summit in Miami last February. So he would have gained about 700,000 pounds. This sum could therefore make her want to start over … In order to replenish the funds, Meghan Markle would seriously consider resuming her career as an actress. For the Daily Mail, a source close to the pretty brunette confided: “Meghan told me that her work with Disney was far from over. The voiceover is just the beginning and there are more collaborations that will happen. ”
