Meghan Markle joined the royal family three years ago after she wed Prince Harry at Windsor Castle. At the time, Markle was dubbed as a B-level actress because although she was appearing in Suits, not everyone knew who she was.
According to reports, Meghan Markle’s net worth was estimated at $5 million in 2018, but this figure increased considerably after she and Prince Harry quit The Firm in 2020.
Markle appeared in seven seasons of Suits, and she reportedly made $50,000 per episode. She also made approximately $360,000 when she starred in Remember Me and The Candidate, according to Parade.
The Duchess of Sussex used to have a lifestyle blog called The Tig, which gave her an estimated $80,000 per year income from branding, sponsorships, and endorsements.
Meghan Markle’s Net Worth In 2021 Revealed
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Markle and Prince Harry’s joint net worth is estimated at $60 million. However, this figure can easily double or even triple by next year. After all, the Sussexes signed multiple deals in the past two years.
Prince Harry and Markle signed a multi-year deal with Netflix, which will reportedly give the couple $100 million. They also have a deal with Spotify that’s estimated at $18 million.

On top of this, Prince Harry also has a lucrative book deal, and he and his wife just partnered with asset manager, Ethic.
According to Yahoo! Finance, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn’t sign a prenup so whatever it is that they earn as a couple will be split equally between them.
Before quitting The Firm, Prince Harry and Markle’s combined net worth was estimated between $25 to $40 million. And even though these figures increased following their Megxit, Prince Harry and Markle would’ve been richer if they were still getting financial support from the Sovereign Grant.
Unfortunately, part of the consequences of quitting their royal duties is funding their daily expenses. The couple had to purchase a house in Montecito, and they also pay for their own security team.
Other personal expenses that Prince Harry didn’t have to worry about like phone bills and electrical costs are now included in his family’s budget.
But despite all these expenses, Prince Harry and Markle are still, technically, richer than Kate Middleton.
Kate Middleton’s Net Worth 2021 Revealed
Kate Middleton’s net worth was estimated between $6.7 million to $9.3 million in 2018.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Middleton’s individual net worth is estimated at around $10 million this year. If this figure is accurate, it shows that the Duchess of Cambridge didn’t earn much in the past three years.
The same publication estimated Prince William’s net worth at $30 million this year. This means that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s combined net worth are only $40 million.
Even though Prince William holds a higher position based on the Order of Succession compared to his brother, Prince Harry has surprisingly become richer than him – for now.
After all, Prince William and Middleton cannot just accept deals from companies since they work for Queen Elizabeth, and they also represent the royal family.
However, it is also important to note that Prince William and Prince Harry will receive more money after Prince Charles and the queen pass away.
