Meghan Markle, Prince Harry: What is their net worth?

With their departure as working members of the British Royal Family now confirmed, many are wondering how Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will survive financially.

When they first stepped back as senior royals last year, the couple reportedly lost their 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.”

Fast-forward to today, between their multiple business endeavors following their royal departure as well as the purchase of their new property in California, the pair has a reported collective net worth of $50 million, per Celebrity Net Worth.
