With a net worth like Prince Harry‘s, he doesn’t have any problem supporting himself or his family since he’s stepped down from his royal duties. While the Duke of Sussex’s fortune was valued at $40 million at the time of his royal family exit in January 2020, it appears his bank account has increased.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Harry is now worth an estimated $60 million. The site reports his fortune is combined with that of his wife, Meghan Markle, whom he married in May 2018. The couple shares their toddler son, Archie, and are currently expecting their second child, a daughter.
Prior to stepping down from his royal duties, the vast majority of Harry’s net worth — which was then estimated to be $30 million — came from a trust fund from his late mom, Princess Diana. The trust fund was set up after Diana and Prince Charles‘ 1996 divorce, and Harry inherited about $20 million on his 25th birthday.
Harry was also in the military in the early 2000s, serving in Iraq in 2007. The following year, he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant with The Household Cavalry. His former salary as a captain in the British Army earned him between $50,000 and $53,000 a year, according to Forbes.
Though impressive, Harry’s net worth has only skyrocketed since marrying the former Suits actress, and even more so after moving to Santa Barbara, California. In the last year, the lovebirds have signed an estimated $120 million worth of production deals, including Spotify, which streams their “Archewell Audio” podcast.
When Harry and Meghan announced their decision to “step back as ‘senior’ members of the royal family” in early 2020, they revealed they were also planning to “become financially independent” from Queen Elizabeth. It appears the two have been doing a fabulous job.
In addition to other deals with Netflix and Lifetime, Harry accepted a new gig on March 23. BetterUp, a technology-focused coaching company, announced his position as the startup’s chief impact officer. “We are energized by his model of inspiration and impact through action,” CEO Alexi Robichaux said in a press release.
The handsome hunk also added another gig to his résumé when was named a commissioner of Aspen Institute’s Commission on Information Disorder just one day later. Harry said he was “eager to join” the team — which is cochaired by Katie Couric, Chris Krebs and Rashad Robinson — and looks forward to “working on a solution-oriented approach to the information disorder crisis” in a statement on March 24.
“As I’ve said, the experience of today’s digital world has us inundated with an avalanche of misinformation, affecting our ability as individuals as well as societies to think clearly and truly understand the world we live in,” his statement to E! News said. “It’s my belief that this is a humanitarian issue — and as such, it demands a multi-stakeholder response from advocacy voices, members of the media, academic researchers, and both government and civil society leaders.”
