The ginger haired one might have got a larger inheritance from grandma than his brother, but it won’t do the alliterate one any good unless she can pry it from him while they are still married.

Perhaps a bigger “marketing” budget for the new company.

Recent revelations show that Prince Harry got more inheritance money than his brother, Prince William.

This extra money came from their great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother’s estate after she died in 2002.

  • The estate was worth about £70 million and had valuable stuff that belonged to Queen Elizabeth II, their grandmother.
  • In 1994, the Queen Mother put most of her money into a trust for her great-grandchildren.
  • Reports say Prince Harry got more from this trust than Prince William did.
  • This difference might be because Prince William is first in line to be king, so he’ll get a lot of royal stuff when that happens. Prince Harry is further down the line.
  • When Princess Diana, their mom, died in 1997, she left them a lot of money too. At first, they got almost £13 million each, but after taxes, it was about £8.5 million.
  • But smart investing made that money grow to over £20 million for each of them by the time they were in their twenties.
  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left their royal roles and moved to the US. They bought a big house there for £12.8 million, using some of an £8.3 million loan.
  • Prince Harry’s own money is about £48 million, and Meghan’s is around the same.
