How Meghan Markle Makes Her Money?

Over the years, ever since Prince Harry and his ex-duchess bae were romantically linked, Meghan Markle has faced an unfair amount of scrutiny and accusations, including the rumor that she is a gold-digger. Usually, members of the British royal family lives off the money of U.K. taxpayers, but since she’s not longer a part of the royal family, she lost those financial privileges, so they no longer apply to her. When stepping back from their official positions, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they would  “work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support” the queen.

In reality, it’s quite the opposite. Meghan’s been always used to supporting herself, and she’ll be just fine. Prior to meeting her red-headed sweetheart, Markle was very successful on the popular American TV show Suits and was a flourishing career woman. Just from her Suits salary alone, Markle’s net worth in 2019, as estimated by Forbes, was $2.2 million.

Last September, the Duchess of Sussex and her husband repaired the $3 million in public funding that was used to renovate their cottage residence on the royal Windsor estate. The couple is also entering the world of business by establishing partnerships with a range of private companies. These partnerships help fund their philanthropic work, which they’re still highly passionate about, even after leaving the monarchy. 

Savings from Suits

Firstly, Meghan established a nest egg with her Suits money. Sources say that she made an average of $50,000 per episode, and she had her $2.2 million net worth before meeting Harry. She also earns royalties whenever an episode of the show airs on USA or a streaming service, including Netflix and Amazon Prime. Thanks to those payments (remember, Harry was cut off and that was his primary income) the couple was able to put a down payment on their $14.7 million home in Montecito, California.
