A lie from Prince Harry exposed to the light? It could be that the Duke of Sussex was not really telling the truth during his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey last March. Indeed, Meghan Markle’s husband had claimed to no longer benefit from his family’s financial support since the Megxit in March 2020. But that was before the annual financial report of the Duchy of Cornwall came to discredit his version. The official accounts of the royal family for the year between April 2020 and March 2021, were made public this Wednesday, June 23, the opportunity to see that Meghan and Harry received money from Prince Charles at the less until summer 2020, before they become financially independent. On one of the lines of this document, one can indeed discover that the Prince of Wales spent the sum of 4.4 million pounds to cover the expenses of the households of Cambridge and Sussex. However, it is not indicated how the allocation was made. “In January 2020, when the Duke and Duchess announced they were going to move away from the Royal Family, the Duke said they would work to become financially independent. The Prince of Wales allocated a substantial sum to accompany them in this transition. This funding ceased in the summer of last year. The couple is now financially independent, “said a spokesperson for Clarence House.
What to contradict the words of Prince Harry who hinted that his father had cut him off when he left for California: “My family literally cut me off. I have what my mother left me and without that we would not have been able to leave. All I wanted was to have enough money for our safety and to put my family out of need, “he said on CBS.
How much is Meghan and Harry’s fortune?
In any case, a year after leaving England and ending their royal duties, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are not at all to be pitied financially. They have managed to bounce back, thanks to the legacy of 7 million pounds, left by Diana to her son, but also thanks to the juicy contracts estimated at several million dollars, which they signed at Netflix and at Spotify. Note that their villa in Montecito, which they bought for ten million dollars, is now worth three times its purchase price. Enough to allow Archie’s parents to be today at the head of a fortune estimated at more than 115 million dollars.
