This Is How Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Will Make Money After the Wedding
Just like the rest of the working world, the Prince spent ten years earning a wage. He served two tours in Afghanistan as helicopter pilot in the British Army Air Corpsand rose to the rank of Captain during his decade-long stint, earning an estimated annual salary of ,000, according to Fortune.
Not to be outdone, the actress banked a reported ,000 per episode on Suits, for a whopping take-home pay of 0,000 per year over the course of seven seasons. She could also stand to make residual income every time USA re-airs episodes, CheatSheet points out. Add that to the paychecks she made for movies like Horrible Bosses and Remember Me, and Markle has likely put away a solid chunk of savings.
All of those acting gigs also built up Meghan's sponsorship and brand value. While she shut down her lifestyle website The Tig this year, leftover income from the blog and probably added up to a nice little bundle: ,000 or so, Town and Country reports.
Citizens fund the monarchy with a solid £292million (about 1 million) per year, but it's actually less than it sounds: Each taxpayer only pays about 65 pence, or approximately 85 cents. That's because the Queen surrenders all profits from the Crown Estate to the government, who repay her with cash — called the Sovereign Grant — in return. This particular money goes toward travel expenses, palace upkeep, and employee salaries.
Diana, Princess of Wales, left a sizable trust fund to both of her sons in her will. Her estate included stocks, shares, jewelry,personal belongings, and cash from her .5 million divorce settlement, split evenly between the two boys. Prince Harry received his .4 million inheritance when he turned 30. This gift also went toward the engagement ring; he used two of his mother's stones to create the custom band.
Here's where the real chunk of change comes in: Founded in 1337 by Edward the III, the Duchy of Cornwall intends to support the heir apparent. That means Prince Charles technically controls the vast collection of propertiesand investment portfolio, but he uses it to fund the public, charitable, and private activitiesof him and his family.
