That is an obscene figure and we’re here to break it down and explain how two seemingly unemployed individuals can be worth so much money.
Royal Family News – What Are The Markle’s Worth?
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made it a huge point of pride to boast that they planned to become financially free after fleeing the kingdom.
When they first stepped down as senior royals in 2020, the couple reportedly lost funding through the royal family’s Sovereign Grant, “the amount of money provided by Government to the Royal Household in support of The Queen’s official duties.”
But now whatever that pittance was seems like a drop in the bucket compared to reports of their current wealth.

So that’s some of Harry’s finances. How did a cable actress earn anything of value? The former Suitcase Girl reportedly earned more than $50,000 per episode for her role in USA Network’s “Suits.” She also appeared in “90210,” “CSI: Miami” and “Horrible Bosses.”

According to Forbes, Markle had $2 million from her Hollywood earnings after taxes. Markle also reportedly earned $80,000 a year for sponsorships and endorsement deals.
Together the couple have a three-year podcast deal with Spotify worth an estimated $15 million to $18 million. Last September the couple signed a $100 million deal with Netflix to produce content over five years. Despite these two work contracts that imply the pair will have to actually do something to earn their keep, neither has produced anything to date for either company. Nice work if you can get it apparently.
