When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to step back from their royal duties, they faced a whole new ball game financially. Stripped of access to the royal family's hefty bankroll, they had to roll up their sleeves and rely on their own hustle to make ends meet. With a net worth estimated at $60 million, they were not exactly counting pennies, but it was their inheritance from Princess Diana, worth $10 million, that really gave them the leg up they needed to take the plunge into their new life. 

Markle’s acting chops, which had raked in around $2 million during her Suits days, also proved to be a trump card in their deck. In a heart-to-heart with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry spilled the beans about how his late mother's inheritance had been their golden ticket to Los Angeles. The couple is currently sitting on a goldmine, with a whopping combined net worth of US$60 million. Among their treasures is their jaw-dropping US$14.7 million abode in Montecito.

Royal Reimaginations: Markle and Prince Harry's upcoming acts

In an exclusive Netflix event for television press, Bela Bajaria, the content chief revealed the royal couple's latest ventures with the streaming platform. With their fingers in multiple pies, the royal couple is cooking up a storm, brewing a movie, a TV show, and a couple of unscripted series. Markle made a dazzling return to Instagram after a five-year hiatus, dropping a bombshell announcement on the fourth anniversary of their move to Los Angeles - the launch of American Riviera Orchards, a venture as fresh as a daisy in the digital landscape. But that is not all.

According to whispers from The Wall Street Journal, the royal couple is also brewing up something called Bad Manners, a TV show with a twist on Charles Dickens' classic character, Miss Havisham. This will not be any grandma's Dickens tale; it will be a re-imagination from a lonely spinster to a woman battling against the tide of societal norms. While the green light remains up in the air, Markle teased eager fans at Variety's Power of Women event, promising that the best was yet to come from their creative cauldron.

Regal ventures and royal awards

Since breaking ties with the royal family, Prince Harry and Markle have been firing on all cylinders with a range of projects. Their Netflix deal, worth a $100 million, set the stage for their production company, Archewell Productions, to churn out original content. Their first offering, Harry & Meghan, a six-part series chronicling their journey from royal life to independence, hit screens in December 2022, pulling back the curtain on their tumultuous ride. But that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Markle dove into the world of investments, backing women-owned ventures like Clevr Blends. Meanwhile, Prince Harry donned the hat of Chief Impact Officer at BetterUp, championing mental resilience. Their partnership with Ethic tackled environmental and social issues head-on, while Prince Harry's memoir, Spare added a literary feather to their cap, reportedly raking in a hefty sum of $35-40 million. In May 2021, Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey teamed up for the groundbreaking mental health series The Me You Can't See on Apple TV+. It was not just a hit—it soared to the top of Apple TV+'s charts, earning rave reviews with an impressive 87 percent critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.

After bidding farewell to Frogmore Cottage in 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set their sights on a new haven in Montecito, California, splurging on a sprawling 16-bedroom estate for a hefty sum of around $21 million USD. The Suits alum spilled the beans to The Cut about how their lavish abode became her personal oasis, describing it as a tranquil sanctuary where she felt liberated and rejuvenated. In one memorable moment, Prince Harry was caught in the driver's seat of a sleek 2022 Audi e-tron SUV, cruising around in style. With a price range of $70,000 to $115,000 USD for premium models, this ride is just one of the Duke’s many automotive indulgences.

Despite Land Rover's historic ties to the royal family, Prince Harry and Markle have seamlessly integrated American flair into their lifestyle, often seen zipping around in a Cadillac Escalade. Despite stepping back from their royal duties, Prince Harry's financial stability was bolstered by trust funds from his late mother, Princess Diana, and grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, with a combined value of approximately $28 million USD according to Forbes. Furthermore, the couple capitalized on their public image, commanding hefty fees ranging from $480,000 to $900,000 USD for appearances and speaking engagements, proving that even outside the palace walls, their star power continued to shine brightly.
