This Is How Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Will Make Money After the Wedding
Let’s just say they’re set for life.
Unlike most newlyweds, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won’t have to fret over finances. Even their multimillion-dollar nuptials shouldn’t throw their budget out of whack. But where does all of that money come from, anyway?
The royal family contributes an estimated $55 billion to the economy, but all of the tourism, fashion, and commerce they generate doesn’t circle back to the Queen and her descendants directly. Here’s how the newly engaged couple can expect to “get by” — and afford those $10,000 outfits.
Just like the rest of the working world, the Prince spent ten years earning a wage. He served two tours in Afghanistan as helicopter pilot in the British Army Air Corps and rose to the rank of Captain during his decade-long stint, earning an estimated annual salary of $45,000, according to Fortune.
