All of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s income streams – Netflix deal to books

Royals fans have been curious about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's income ever since the couple stepped away from the royal family in 2020 claiming to have "become financially independent".

The pair are no longer working royals, which means they're free to make their own income in addition to their existing personal wealth.

While Prince Harry has fortunes left to his name by his mother – the late Princess Diana – and great-grandmother the Queen Mother, Meghan has earned sizeable wealth from her acting days

But how do the Duke and Duchess of Sussex earn all their money? Here's a look at all their income streams.

Harry and Meghan's Netflix deal

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have signed a number of deals for large sums of money, reportedly even in the millions.

One these multi-million-pound deals include producing a Netflix series.

The pair plan to make several programmes, including a documentary about the Invictus Games, which Harry created in 2014 for service women and men.

The couple also plan to make an animated children's series about the adventures of a young girl, encouraged by influential women of history.

Meghan Markle's books

The Duchess of Sussex has also written a children's book called The Bench, which quickly became a New York Times bestseller.

Inspired by a poem that Meghan wrote for Harry after having their son Archie, the book is about a father and son relationship and how love takes many different forms in modern families.

Although believed all profit is to go to charity, Harry is also writing a tell-all memoir explaining all of his endeavours since childhood.

It's been reported that his deeply personal book is likely to be published by the end of this year.

My husband has been saying for years, 'Gosh, don't you wish there was a place where if your values were aligned like this, you could put your money to that same sort of thing?'"
