As the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announce their plans to become 'financially independent', royal fans are left wondering; how much are they really worth?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also announced that by doing this, they want to work on becoming "financially independent".
With this, many royal fans have been left wondering how much Meghan and Harry are worth, the royal funds aside.
Meghan Markle was already wealthy in her own right before wedding Prince Harry in 2018, thanks to her role as Rachel Zane in Netflix drama Suits.
It has been reported that the Duchess was worth around £5 million when she married Harry.
Meghan appeared in seven series of Suits, and reportedly earned around £37,000 pet episode.
This would make her annual salary £333,000.
By stepping down as 'senior' royals, Prince Harry and Meghan "will no longer receive funding through the Sovereign Grant".
On their new website, they explain: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex take great pride in their work and are committed to continuing their charitable endeavours as well as establishing new ones.
"In addition, they value the ability to earn a professional income, which in the current structure they are prohibited from doing. For this reason they have made the choice to become members of the Royal Family with financial independence."
According to Money.com, Prince Harry has an estimated net worth of £19 million.
This money is mainly inherited from his late mother, Princess Diana, who left her sons – Harry and William – three quarters of her £21 million estate.
