Meghan Markle and Prince Harry might not be as wealthy as you might think

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have seen a significant change in their financial circumstances since stepping back from their roles in the British Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who departed from their Royal duties in 2020, no longer have access to the substantial funds provided by the Royal Family's $28-billion estate. As a result, they have had to rely on their own income to sustain their lifestyle.

With a combined estimated net worth of $60 million, as per Forbes, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have adapted to their new financial reality. 

During a candid interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry revealed that they were able to make the move to Los Angeles thanks to the inheritance left to him by his late mother, Princess Diana. This inheritance, estimated at $10 million, played a pivotal role in their decision to step away from Royal life.
