Many may have been very curious about Prince Harry's wealth after he stepped down as a senior royal family member with his wife, Meghan Markle, in 2020. But how wealthy has the Duke of Sussex become today with his inheritance, Netflix, book deals, and more?

Life as a Royal

Before Prince Harry left the royal family, he had a net worth of $30 million, thanks to a trust fund set up by his late mom, Princess Diana.

When he reached 25, he started to receive annual dividends from investments related to the People Princess' fortune, which was about $450,000 a year.

At 30, he inherited half of his mother's fortune, estimated to be worth $17 million, along with her jewels and jewelry.

Prince Harry didn't have to spend even a single dollar out of his pocket for his lifestyle when he was still a senior royal family member.

The Duchy of Cornwall paid everything for him, from his travels to his clothing to his staff and daily expenses.

He received half of the $4.7 million allowance at the time, while his brother, Prince William, got the other half.

Moreover, the royal siblings received several million dollars each when their great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, died in 2002.

Queen Mother's Trust Fund

Queen Mother also reportedly set up a trust fund for Prince Harry and Prince William, with the former taking most of the money to "compensate for not becoming sovereign."

Prince Harry's Netflix, Spotify, Book Deals

After stepping down as senior royals, Prince Harry and Meghan signed a multi-year deal, reportedly worth about $100 million, with Netflix to produce content that "informs, elevates, and inspires."

They also have another multi-year deal, worth $25 million, with Spotify to create podcast content under their Archewell Audio banner.
