Three years ago, the Sussexes lost an estimated $5.5 million in royal income when they made the controversial move to quit their duties in 2020, announcing their plans to become financially independent.
Meghan and Harry have since made a small fortune from their six-part Netflix series — part of a $100 million deal — and his Spare book contract for $20 million. There’s also the couple’s $30 million podcast payout from Spotify to consider, which is surely helping.
However, their bills keep stacking up, including the mortgage for their sprawling $14 million Montecito mansion. Sources said the pair also spends more than $2 million a year for security to protect themselves and their kids, Archie and Lilibet.
