Prior to purchasing the Montecito residence, Prince Harry and Markle had been staying at actor/producer Tyler Perry’s house in Los Angeles. Before that, they had briefly resided in Canada. The couple left their royal residence, Frogmore Cottage on the grounds of Windsor Castle, after resigning as senior members of the royal family in March 2020.
Prince Harry’s net worth and Meghan Markle’s net worth are a combined $60 million. At the time of their marriage, Markle was worth $5 million from her work as an actress and Harry was worth about $20 million, primarily from a trust set up by his mother, the late Princess Diana. They have since signed a $100-million production deal with Netflix and an $18-million podcasting deal with Spotify.
Harry was born in 1984. He was the second child of Prince Charles of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in a car crash in 1997. Markle was born in 1981 in Los Angeles California and studied theatre and international studies at Northwestern University. She mostly found small roles and modeling gigs (including being hired as a ‘briefcase girl’ on the game show “Deal or no Deal”) before landing the role of Rachel Zane on the television show “Suits”. Markle starred in “Suits” from 2011-2017.
In January 2020, the couple announced that they would be relinquishing their titles and salary from the royal family and seeking financial independence.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married in 2017. They have two children, Archie and Lilibet.
