Not only did dad have to have to kick in money for the new home on the coast, apparently grandma also had to kick in money.
So much for being financially independent.
Oh, and there were promises made they would pay back dad and grandma.
The alliterate one is going to hoard it for the inevitable divorce.

Prince Harry and Meghan Repaid the $3.2 Million Used to Renovate Frogmore Cottage
Just one week after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed a major multiyear deal with Netflix, the Sussexes announced that they’ve paid back the approximately $3.2 million in taxpayer money that was used on the refurbishment of their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said, “A contribution has been made to the Sovereign Grant by The Duke of Sussex. This contribution as originally offered by Prince Harry has fully covered the necessary renovation costs of Frogmore Cottage, a property of Her Majesty The Queen, and will remain the U.K. residence of The Duke and his family.”
The Sovereign Grant is public money that the Queen receives every year for certain royal expenses, and that includes necessary renovations to royal homes. Prince William and Kate Middleton also received a large sum of money from the Sovereign Grant when refurbishing their Kensington Palace residence.
The criticism over their use of the public funds grew substantially after the Sussexes announced their intention to step down from their official royal roles earlier this year. Prince Harry and Meghan pledged to pay back the money as part of their exit deal, and four months ago, they reportedly began spending $22,000-a-month in a “rental plus” agreement, in which the Sussexes both paid rent to keep the house while simultaneously paying back the Sovereign Grant for the refurbishment costs. – Source
