How do they get their money?

Prior to the wedding, Meghan was an actress best known for starring in the TV series Suits, and Harry was in the military performing royal duties.

Now they’ve left the royal family behind and live in Montecito, Calif. — and they have a number of different sources of income.

As the BBC explains, their media company Archewell Productions makes a range of programs for Netflix and a Spotify podcast.

This includes the new Harry & Meghan documentary and Meghan’s Archetypes podcast series about famous women.

They also make money from book deals. Meghan published a children’s book called The Bench in 2021, while Harry Spare’s autobiography comes out in January 2023.

Harry received millions in inheritance when his mother, Princess Diana, died in 1997. He may also have received money after the Queen’s death.

After leaving the royal family, they no longer receive money from King Charles and are financially independent.

How much they were paid for the Netflix series

Forbes reports that the couple have a lucrative five-year deal with Netflix worth $100 million.

The contract, signed in September 2020, is to produce documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programs.

So they got paid $100 million for the Harry & Meghan docuseries and a number of other shows that will be happening over the next five years.
