While the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes’ life may be rife with a chaotic personal and public front, when it comes to their “financial worries”… Well, let’s just say that the phrase won’t even make a cameo appearance in their foreseeable future. Though Prince Harry’s net worth is thanks to his royal status, Meghan Markle has more or less earned where she stands today. Being a royal has merely elevated what she already had.
She starred in the hit TV show “Suits”
Reportedly, Meghan earned a whopping $50,000 per episode playing Rachel Zane on the USA legal drama. She starred in the role from the first season till the seventh season before she bid farewell to the show to focus on her humanitarian work. But even in those seven seasons, she appeared in more than 100 episodes and that would total up to somewhere around $500,000.
But how did she make ends meet before landing success in “Suits”?
She even dabbled in freelance calligraphy work, which is actually “super-lucrative” because there is rarely anyone who does it. She used to do it for Dolce & Gabbana’s celebrity correspondence. “I would sit there with a little white tube sock on my hand so no hand oils got on the card, trying to pay my bills while auditioning,” she had said in one of her earlier interviews.
Soon she tasted success and off came the white socks
With her lifestyle brand, The Tig, getting popular along with the increasing success of “Suits”, Meghan started earning endorsement money.
As of today, as per the Celebrity Net Worth estimates, Meghan Markle’s net worth is somewhere around $5 million. Even though Prince Harry’s net worth stands at an estimated $40 million, with $13.4 million of it coming from an inheritance from his mother and funds from his father’s Duchy of Cornwall, Meghan’s net worth is much more significant because it is all her- her hard work and dedication to succeed in life.
