BREAKING: Harry & Meghan’s hideaway, the Kremlin-linked tech tycoon

Harry and Meghan’s hideaway, the Kremlin-linked tech tycoon and a web of intrigue: Tantalising questions about billionaire Yuri Milner who met the prince at elite ‘Google Camp’ last summer

  • Yuri Milner, arguably most influence investor online is renting house to Sussexes 
  • Prince Harry met him at the Google Camp conference in Sicily last year 
  • Milner is on US Treasury Department watchlist of people with ties to the Kremlin

Amid the dozens of A-list celebrities and social media Titans gathered in isolated splendour on the Sicilian coast last summer, the interaction between two of the more camera-shy guests went largely unnoticed.

Prince Harry was just one of the instantly recognisable world figures attending ‘Google Camp’, the VIP conference organised by the U.S. internet behemoth to tackle climate change.

His name was Yuri Milner, and he is arguably the most influential investor in the ‘dot-com’ universe.

For the duration of the event, he was based on a superyacht called Andromeda, anchored a launch ride offshore. The 107-metre vessel has a helipad, cabins for 30 overnight guests and a crew of 43. It was recently bought for $250 million — by a mystery buyer — from the richest man in New Zealand.
