How much did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle make from their Netflix documentary?

Prince Harry and Markle reportedly signed the deal with the streaming giants in September 2020 and rumours have surfaced over time surrounding their rocky working relationship.

However, it’s believed Netflix has paid the former royal couple a staggering $100 million which is said to be for a number of documentaries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programmes.

What is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s net worth?

Latest reports in 2022 suggest Prince and Markle have a combined net worth of around £60 million. Of course, this number is set to get much bigger following their Netflix deal.

Before she married into royalty, Markle had a nice solo net worth of around $5 million thanks to her acting career, which included Suits, and a lifestyle blog.

Prince Harry also had a royalty net worth before meeting his wife of around $40 million which was largely made up of funds left to him by his mum Princess Diana and the Queen Mother.

He also earned impressive figures from his royal and military duties.

How do Prince Harry and Meghan Markle earn their money?

When they left the royal family, they also lost their funding so were forced to go out into the big wide world alone.

Set up strongly thanks to his inheritance money, Prince Harry and Markle have gone on to complete projects such as her Archetypes podcast, her children’s book, ‘The Bench’, and his upcoming autobiography, ‘Spare’.

This Netflix deal will have contributed massively to their funds along with the set up of their own production company, Archewell Productions.

Prince Harry and Markle’s first big job was their interview with Oprah Winfrey, however, they deny they were paid anything for that.
