Meghan’s palace surprise: Royal author claims Markle unaware of Harry’s financial situation



Frogmore Cottage deemed a “jail sentence” as Meghan unveils unexpected royal realities

In a surprising revelation, royal author Tom Bower suggests that Meghan Markle, upon embarking on her relationship with Prince Harry, was not prepared for the financial constraints and the absence of regal living. Bower claims that the Duchess of Sussex did not anticipate living in a palace and found the lavish Frogmore Cottage akin to a “jail sentence.”

Before the couple’s move to California, they initially resided in the modest four-bedroom Nottingham Cottage, where Prince Harry proposed. The couple later upgraded to the extensively renovated five-bedroom Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, which underwent a £2.4 million transformation.

Bower, sharing insights with Closer!, stated, “She didn’t realise when she hooked up with Harry that he didn’t have much money and wasn’t going to live in a palace.” According to him, the couple faced less financial pressure in the UK but opted for a significant income when residing in their large California home overlooking the Pacific.

Meghan’s reported discomfort with Frogmore Cottage stands in stark contrast to the £2.4 million spent on its refurbishment. Bower suggests that Meghan viewed the residence as confining, describing it as a “jail sentence.”

Contrary to claims that Harry had limited funds, Celebrity Net Worth estimated his worth between £19 million to £30 million before their departure from London. Meghan, with a reported net worth of around £5 million from her acting career, has since embarked on multi-media ventures with Spotify and Netflix, contributing to the couple’s estimated £118 million earnings.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, now residing in a £12 million mansion in California’s Montecito neighbourhood, have embraced a financially independent lifestyle, leveraging their global fame for lucrative multi-media deals.

As the royal couple’s journey unfolds, the revelations about Meghan’s initial expectations and the realities of their royal life shed light on the intricacies of their high-profile relationship.
