Prince Harry

What does ‘financial independence’ really look like for Harry and Meghan?


We all know that Harry and Meghan decided to step back as senior members of the family and work to become financially independent.

So how exactly are Harry and Meghan going to do that?

Adding to it, being ‘financially independent’ is a first time experience for Harry. Even if you’re a new royal fan, the monetary aspect of how Meghan and Harry plan to keep their affluent lifestyle is indeed very much intriguing.

US President Donald Trump said that the United States would not pay security costs for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan. This is a clear indication that the royal couple has moved on from Canada to live in California. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly travelled by private jet from Canada to Los Angeles. They flew before the border between the two countries closed because of the deadly coronavirus outbreak.

The couple, who had been living in Canada for quite some time, shook the royal family and royal fans earlier this year. The decision was they would no longer represent the British monarchy and to seek a new, independent life.

“I am a really great friend and supporter of Queen Elizabeth & the United Kingdom,” Trump tweeted. “It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!”

The pair later issued a statement stating they had no intention of soliciting aid from the US government.

“Privately funded security arrangements have been made,” the statement said.

Meghan Markle has an estimated wealth of £4 million. Not to forget she earned very well from her role as Rachel Zane in the hit TV series Suits. She also did a handful of small movie roles and earned from her lifestyle blog, The Tig. Prince Harry has built up an inheritance from the likes of the Queen Mother and millions from the estate of his mother, Princess Diana, bringing his personal wealth to an estimated £30 million.

Meghan was brought up in Los Angeles and her mother, Doria Ragland, still lives in Los Angeles. The one-time actress has a network of friends who works in Los Angeles, where she could now restart her acting career.

Disney recently announced that she might narrate a new film about a family of African elephants. Harry was reportedly caught in a hoax telephone call recently. He attacked Trump for his stance on climate change. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will formally step back from royal duties on March 31.

For now, at least, it’s quite clear, using the term ‘financially independent’ within a said document, might be a bit of a stretch.
