In their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry revealed how he and Meghan Markle were able to survive after being financially cut off from the royal family.
In stepping down as a senior working member of the royal family, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were no longer entitled to certain financial benefits that came with their previous status.
While the couple have made headlines for their huge streaming deals, Harry noted that "the Netflixes and Spotifys of it all was never part of the plan."
He then shared that the only reason they were able to separate from the family — and live securely prior to inking the reported multi-million dollar deals with the streaming giants — was because of the money left to him by his late mother, Princess Diana.

According to Forbes, the Duke of Sussex, 36, and the Duchess of Sussex, 39, relied primarily on the “estimated $10 million inheritance” that Harry received from his late mother’s estate following her death in 1997.
The Telegraph notes that the inheritance, which was originally £6.5 million (around $8.9 million), was invested, and thus, accumulated substantial interest following Diana’s passing. This led to Harry inheriting “around £10 million (about $13 million) on his 30th birthday.”
