Prince Hot Ginge And Meghan Markle Are No Longer Getting Money From Prince Charles And Have Paid Back The Taxpayer Money Spent On Frogmore Renovations
Congratulations to Prince Hot Ginge and Meghan Markle! Because they have now creamed out the words that many of us say when we pay $5 more than the minimum payment due on a bill: “Fuck me happy, I’m nearly debt-free!”
PHG no longer has to nudge his daddy, Prince Charles, with an “Err, did you forget today is the first?” text when his allowance doesn’t hit his Venmo and he and Meghan don’t have to worry about British taxpayers calling a collection agency on their asses. They are now financially independent from the Royal Family. And just a quick second after moving to America! These two underdogs truly pulled themselves up from the bootstraps and defied all odds! The epitome of a rags to riches story! But seriously, while PHG and Meghan are reportedly not getting money from The Crown anymore, I’m sure The Daily Mail will find out that they used an Outback gift card that THE QUEEN gave them as a housewarming gift and will scream: Harry And Meghan, Still Leeching Off The Royal Family!
When PHG and Meghan announced in January that were quitting their jobs as senior royals, they said that they would work to be “financially independent” and would payback the $3.1 million that was spent on renovating their UK pied-à-terre Frogmore Cottage. Some said it would take them 11 years to pay it back, so I bet PHG farted out a cloud of haughtiness at those hos when he announced yesterday that he’s made a contribution to the Sovereign Grant, which covers the cost of redoing Frogwhore:
“This contribution as originally offered by Prince Harry has fully covered the necessary renovation costs of Frogmore Cottage, a property of Her Majesty The Queen, and will remain the UK residence of the duke and his family.”
That money definitely came from PHG and Meghan’s big new deal with Netflix. Just when PHG was thisclose to selling his worn bloomers on eBay to make ends meet, Netflix swooped in and saved the day (Damn you, Netflix!). PHG and Meghan signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to make projects for them. The amount PHG and Meghan got from Netflix is not known, but The New York Times says that they were looking for a $100 million deal. They also reportedly met with Quibi (HA!) and NBCUniversal before signing with Netflix.
While reporting on PHG and Meghan’s Netflix deal, The New York Times mentioned in a correction that they’re no longer getting money from Prince Daddy Charles. They were getting money from Prince Charles’ Duchy of Cornwall estate, but Charles is no longer passing the Duchy to them. People confirmed that through a source:
Those close to the couple strenuously denied that Charles was paying for their security costs in the short term since they stepped down as working royals. They were doing so themselves, those close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told PEOPLE from the start of their new life in California. But he had been helping with some ongoing living costs since Harry and Meghan left the U.K. in March.
That has now ended with their multimillion-dollar Netflix deal announced last week, and they are “no longer receiving any financial support,” a source says. The couple first outlined their wish to be “financially independent” when they announced they were stepping away from being working members of the royal family in January.
So now that PHG and Meghan are “financially independent” peasants like the rest of us and have to worry about paying their own bills, they should practice fake calling Capital One’s customer service “to get to the bottom of this because that’s the good card” when their card declines in front of a cashier. “Oh, customer service said it was an error on THEIR part, thankyouverymuch, and it’ll be fixed tomorrow so I’ll come by then to get all this stuff” is a good exit line.
