$35 million seems to be missing from the British royal family’s finances, could like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle be to blame? At least according to a recent bunch of tabloid stories, they might be. We rounded up the stories on this “scandal” to see if Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are really in the hot seat with the British monarchy.
Woman’s Day made claims earlier this year that the royal family’s pockets took a punch from the pair. The Queen’s treasurer made a statement stating that the bank “should expect to run at a $35 million loss by March 2021,” and the tabloid thinks it knows where that went.
Woman’s Day made similar claims again back in October. Prince Harry has supposedly faced some scrutiny over the money management of his charities. Did they actually steal the money if Markle stated the royal family did not pay for security expenses?
We also looked at In Touch’s reports on Queen Elizabeth’s reaction to this rumor of the pair draining the family of $35 million. According to the tabloid, the queen is not happy with Prince Harry and his new memoir, and as retaliation, she plans to stop the release, “by taking the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to court and suing for “$35 million in damages if they don’t back down.”
