Prince Harry inheritance from Princess Diana is said to have sustained him after he was cut off financially by his family.
Prince Harry recently revealed that the royal family “literally cut him off financially” after he and Meghan Markle stepped back as working royals.
According to Prince Harry, the idea of deals with Spotify and Netflix came after “my family literally cut me off financially.”
Harry said that he was cut off in the first quarter of 2020 — shortly after he and Meghan announced they would step back as senior members of the royal family. He added that he had the money left to him by his late mother, Princess Diana.
“Without that, we wouldn’t have been able to do this,” he said, likely referring to the family’s move to California.
The Duke of Sussex added, “All I wanted was enough money to get security and keep my family safe.”
What is Prince Harry’s inheritance?
Harry gained access to his inheritance from Diana in 2014; both he and his brother William were left £10 million—currently about $13.8 million—in trusts that could only be accessed upon reaching their 30th birthdays.
From the age of 25, the two sons would start getting $450,000 annually from their respective trusts.
Both Harry and William have access to another multi-million dollar inheritance from their great-grandmother and Queen: £14 million ($19.3 million) which is to be split between the two brothers. Marie Claire says that Harry is to get the bigger share because he won’t be getting the many financial perks that William will, when he becomes king.
