As a result of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s announcement that they will be resigning from their positions as active working royals and relocating to Canada with their family, the royal family has been thrown into disarray. In response to the recent events, Queen Elizabeth made an unusually direct and personal statement. In her words:

“We are completely on board with Harry and Meghan’s plans to start a new life together as a young family, and so is the rest of my family. We respect and understand their desire to live a more independent life as a family while still remaining a valued part of my family, despite the fact that we would have preferred they continue to work full-time as members of the Royal Family. However, we also respect and understand their desire to live a more independent life.”

We can now take the Queen’s statement with the proverbial grain of salt because Harry and Meghan’s exit from royal life is not going to be simple by any stretch of the imagination. The fact that the couple wants to live a “more independent life” means that they will have to pay for their extravagant way of life out of their own pocket, rather than using the money that was gifted to them through the sovereign grant. In light of the aforementioned, Harry has an individual net worth of $40 million, whereas Meghan has an individual net worth of $5 million. They should be fine for the foreseeable future.

After Harry successfully negotiated the couple’s release from royal responsibilities, Meghan and Harry have been reunited in Canada. They have every intention of continuing to reside in the fourteen million dollar waterfront home on Vancouver Island that is owned by a mutual friend who is a billionaire. The former royal couple will establish their home here and use their newly won freedom to make millions of dollars and sign deals without the approval of the Queen to build their business empire.

It has been rumored that Netflix is already attempting to have the couple sign a production deal with the company. The combined speaking fee that Harry and Meghan could command is $500,000. They are free to devote their time and energy to projects that are important to them now that they are no longer bound by the protocols of the palace (to say nothing of the politics). The other piece of beneficial information for the Queen is that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are both media-savvy enough to avoid making gaffes that would bring the royal family into disrepute. A public relations executive who is not affiliated with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex speculated that in ten years, Meghan might run for president of the United States. This executive did not know the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a significant number of influential friends in both the United States and Canada. The couple is currently looking for someone to head up the effort to launch their Sussex Royal Foundation, which they are currently working on. In addition, Harry is planning a number of major charity events in collaboration with Sentebale, an organization that works to improve the mental health and well-being of children and young people in Botswana and Lesotho who have been affected by HIV.

The couple has made it abundantly clear that they do not wish to be financially dependent on members of the general public in their new lives. However, if we’re being honest, it won’t be too difficult for Harry and Meghan to provide for themselves financially. They are celebrities, and by following the Kardashians’ lead, they can build themselves into a brand that is worth a billion dollars. No, not the sex tape model; rather, the lifestyle model in which you sell your life as a product. The two people also have the potential to make money from lucrative book deals. Their level of fame is sufficient to earn them book advances in the ballpark of the approximately sixty million dollars that Barack and Michelle Obama received for their memoirs in 2017.

In the previous year, Harry and Meghan applied for a total of one hundred trademarks, covering a wide range of Sussex Royal branded apparel and merchandise. Those trademarks, on the other hand, are only valid in the United Kingdom. They were most likely submitted as a defensive measure in order to prevent other people from making money off of their name. In December, the couple submitted an application for a global trademark in order to register the Sussex Royal brand in the European Union (EU), the United States of America (USA), Australia, and Canada.

If Harry and Meghan decided to monetize their social media presence, they could make as much as $105,000 for each sponsored Instagram post. This would allow them to generate additional revenue. As a point of comparison, the maximum fee that the Obamas can receive for a sponsored post on Instagram is $230,000.

And of course, if the couple ever finds themselves in a financial bind or if Meghan ever feels the need to flex her acting muscle again, she does still have the option of returning to her acting career. In point of fact, a number of reports have already stated that she has signed a lucrative voice-over deal with Disney; however, neither the Duchess of Sussex nor the studio has confirmed this information.

Charity will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in Harry and Meghan’s new life together, just as it has for them throughout the entirety of their relationship to this point. This much is certain.

As global celebrities with a combined net worth of $45 million, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have virtually no limits when it comes to the amount of money they can make thanks to their notoriety.
