This is so funny, they got the numbers all wrong
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won’t have to worry about how they’ll afford their honeymoon after their wedding – unlike most newlyweds.
Even their multi-million pound wedding day shouldn’t affect their budget!
But with Meghan no longer acting, how will she make money? And what does Harry do exactly?
While the royal family contributes an estimated £1.8 million to the British economy every year, none of that money circles back to them. So how do they afford everything?
The Royal family contributes a lot more than that
The first way they make money is through Harry’s army salary, he spent 10 years in the armed forces.
He served two tours in Afghanistan as the helicopter pilot in the British Army Air Corps – rising to the rank of captain.
According to Fortune, Harry earns an estimated salary of £33,000.
Prince Harry’s army salary is donated from what I understand
Even though Meghan has left her acting days behind her, she reportedly made a massive $50,000 per episode of Suits. That means her annual salary would be $500,000 and she was in the show for seven episodes.
So it’s safe to say she has a good chunk of savings!
Oh, and of course, she had also had her lifestyle blog, The Tig, which she shut down last year – sob! She also has a clothing line with Reitmans, reportedly all adding up to $80,000, according to Town and Country.
Markle made like 35K per episode, and after everyone takes a chunk, it’s more like 14k per episode. Markle had traveling expenses, the TIG didn’t make money it was a dog. MM blog was worth a little over $700. Reitman’s I don’t think she made that much, I bet houseplant has those figures
Harry also has a sizable trust fund left to him by his mother, Princess Diana. Her estate included stocks, shares, jewelry, personal belongings, and cash from her £17.5 million divorce settlement, split evenly between the two boys.
The real money though, is coming from his father, Prince Charles’ property. Founded in 1337 by Edward the III, the Duchy of Cornwall estate intends to support the heir apparent AKA Prince Charles.
Its estimated value now tops $1 billion, and it paid out almost £6.6 million to Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last year.
The trust fund is invested, remember it has to last him a lifetime. The personal jewelry was divided, Harry gave the sapphire ring to Will. The PoW pays the boys from the duchy for their living expenses and doing charitable works. I’m sure there is a set budget that we are not privy too.
