Experts claim: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be on the list of the richest Britons

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle already have a fortune estimated at several million pounds, but financial experts say their time is yet to come and they will soon be on the list of the 1000 richest Britons.
Ever since they announced they were planning to step down from the British royal family and become financially independent, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have not stopped attracting increased media attention. Much has been said about their bank accounts and what will be their source of income when they are separated from the rest of the family, and now a financial expert claims in an interview he gave for Hello! so they can become billionaires, Insider writes.

Harry's legacy and Meghan's acting career could help them gain independence, but the focus should be on their joint projects, according to Robert Watts, who compiled a list for the Sunday Times rich, featuring the 1000 richest Britons. He believes that both Harry and Meghan will be on this list in the future.

"You cannot underestimate international interest in royal family members. And it is even greater in America, Canada and other countries in the world. This couple already has a fortune of eight digits, about £ 20m, but I think it's possible to reach 10 years to the list of the richest at £ 500 million or even a billion pounds, ”says Watts.

Last year, the 20 richest people on the list had a fortune worth £ 6 billion, so Harry and Meghan have a few years and good conditions to appear on it.

Harry and Meghan are open to the public about their plans, which can be read on their site, where they state, among other things, that they do not plan to call themselves members of the royal family after the transition period ending March 31.

Earlier this month, they said they had made money speaking at the JP Morgan Chase & Co. bank summit, as well as continuing to support the Invictus Games Foundation and the Royal Endeavor Foundation, but would also set up a new "non-profit" organization.

In 2019, Queen Elizabeth ranked 356 in the Sunday Times list with a fortune estimated at £ 370 million, while the value of the entire British monarchy in 2017 was estimated by Forbes at $ 88 billion. They came up with this amount considering the royal family-owned artwork, their jewelry, real estate, and brand value.
