It is no secret that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have faced financial difficulties since stepping down as senior royal family members. However, according to royal expert Katie Nicholl, their money struggles are even more severe than previously thought.
In an interview with Channel 5 documentary “Harry & Meghan: The First Year”, Nicholl revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were so short of money that Meghan was left shocked at how little her husband had.
However another royal expert, Tom Bower, also asserts the same thing. The Duchess of Sussex is money-obsessed, the royal author claims. And she had imagined that her husband was worth millions – if not billions. But against her expectations, Prince Harry had “very little money.”
Furthermore, the royal expert goes on to explain how Prince Harry inherited some money from his mother Princess Diana. But the couple quickly realized it was not enough to support the lifestyle he wanted.
He then resorted to cutting back on expenses and asking his father Prince Charles for help. Both of which Meghan was allegedly unaware of prior to their marriage.
The Duke and Duchess have since taken steps to become more financially independent, setting up a multi-million dollar charitable foundation in 2019. And signing lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.
However, it is clear that the royal couple still faces financial challenges, something Meghan Markle has now experienced firsthand. Whether Prince Harry and Meghan will be able to overcome these challenges remains to be seen.
What is certain, however, is that their story offers an eye-opening glimpse into the reality of royal life – one that shows how difficult money can make things even for royalty.
By now, it is clear that although the royal couple has achieved financial success since stepping down as senior royal family members, they still face money struggles.
With Meghan Markle now have experienced this firsthand and royal expert Katie Nicholl revealing just how little Prince Harry had upon their marriage, it is a stark reminder of just how difficult financial issues can be.
Even for royal families. As their story unfolds, we can only hope that the Duke and Duchess will find the stability they seek. Not just financially but in all areas of life. Ultimately, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s story gives us a unique insight into royal life. It highlights that even those from the highest echelons of society can experience difficult money issues.
Something which no family should have to go through. With their ongoing journey still unfolding, we are certainly watching with bated breath to see how they will fare in the future.
