What is Meghan Markle’s net worth?

According to Hello Magazine, Meghan has a combined net worth of US$60 million (roughly AU$91 million) with Prince Harry. This includes the stunning US$14.7 million home the couple have in Montecito.

How does Meghan Markle make money?

Meghan reportedly had a net worth of US$2 million before she married Prince Harry, thanks to her acting career.

Of course, once Meghan and Harry tied the knot in 2018, she retired from acting.

Then she, along with Harry, stepped back from the royal family in 2020; meaning the couple no longer had access to the Sovereign Grant.

But Meghan pursued other endeavours to bring in an income.

For instance, she and Harry signed a US$100 million contract with Netflix in 2020; so far, this has resulted in the three documentary series Harry & Meghan, Heart of Invictus and Live to Lead.

Furthermore, Meghan launched the podcast Archetypes with Spotify in 2022 and is set to release a new podcast in 2024 with Lemonada Media. It’s not been disclosed how much either of these deals were worth but both are rumoured to be in the millions…

Did Meghan Markle inherit anything from the Queen?

As per tradition, the late Queen Elizabeth II’s will was sealed and locked away for 90 years. So it’ll be a long time before we know whether she left anything to Meghan.

Plus, most of the Queen’s belongings weren’t technically hers; they are occupied by the Sovereign and held in trust by Crown Estates for future generations.

Does Meghan Markle still get paid from Suits?

It’s highly likely that Meghan gets residual money from reruns and streams of the television series Suits. The Duchess of Sussex starred in 7 of the show’s 9 seasons as Rachel Zane.
