Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would like to earn millions a year. They want to reach the level where they can collect "lots of money and do good things."
Former royal correspondent Richard Mineards made the claims, according to MailOnline. He told Evening Standard that the two former working royals are "very driven by money," adding that they have "got their eyes" on it, similar to what James Corden earns.
He continued that the television show host earns "like $12 million" for each season of "The Late Late Show." The Duke and Duchess of Sussex want something like that, "but, also, do good things with The Archewell foundation."
In the same engagement, Richard Mineards stated that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle "have kept a low profile" in the United States following their move to Montecito, California. He revealed, however, that the former actress is a "regular at Montecito Country Mart," which is a shopping village within the locality.
The expert, also, claimed that the residents can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "more in the community" as the COVID-19 lockdown has concluded. He even recalled the witnesses who had spotted the royal-born Prince on the beach with his bike and Labrador.
Later in the interview, Mineards asserted that the Sussex couple will not likely return to the United Kingdom. While they are "much more welcome" in the Duchess's home country, "the British people see her as the Wallis Simpson, stealing the golden prince."
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stopped receiving funds from the British Royal Family following the announcement of their exit to become "financially independent" in 2020. The former working royals talked about the matter in their bombshell interview with Oprah earlier in 2021.
The youngest Wales prince told the celebrity host that his family "literally" cut him off financially in the "first quarter of 2020." But, as per the accounts of Prince Charles, about $6 million was spent for the pair's activities in between 2020 and 2021 financial year, which began in April 2020, according to BBC.
A spokesperson from Clarence House reportedly released a statement regarding the matter at the time. As noted, the Prince of Wales had allocated "a substantial sum" to support the then-working royals' transition to financial independence. The funding, however, "ceased in the summer" of 2020, adding that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are "now financially independent."
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have closed lucrative deals with media companies since they left their royal posts. It remains unclear how much they obtained from these agreements, but reports claimed that they are worth millions.
