Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may not be the first people that come to mind when you picture a couple struggling in our current economy.
But money problems are relative, and for some, having only a few million left in the bank can be cause for concern!
Last month, fans were shocked by the news that Meghan’s Spotify podcast had been canceled after just one season.
Shortly after, sources indicated that Sussexes’ Netflix deal could be in jeopardy.
Harry and Meghan already received millions from the streaming giant for their docu-series that premiered in December.
The pair also scored a hefty payday for Harry’s memoir, which was published in January.
But there was a backlash to all that exposure, and Harry and Meghan’s popularity has been waning for several months now.
Now, a new report from OK! magazine claims that the Duke and Duchess are officially worried about their financial future.
An insider tells the outlet that “money is definitely becoming an issue again” for the Sussexes.
“They will do everything they can to maintain their chic Montecito lifestyle. Harry even agreed to do a public therapy session in March – a 90-minute livestreamed event with trauma expert and author Dr. Gabor Mate,” the insider says.
The source adds that when it comes to considering potential business ventures “nothing is off the table” for the Sussexes.
“[Harry] and Meghan know that their chances have not gone as planned, but they are determined to persevere and be a success – no matter what,” the insider claims.
It won’t be easy, especially since there’s an overriding sense that Harry and Meghan have already spilled all the royal tea and may have little else to say that matters to the general public.
On the other hand, Netflix recently issued a statement clarifying that they have no immediate plans to sever their working relationship with the royals, and are looking forward to Harry’s upcoming documentary on the Invictus Games.
“We appreciate our partnership with Archewell Productions,” said a representative.
“Harry & Meghan was Netflix’s biggest documentary debut ever and we will continue to collaborate on a number of projects, including the upcoming documentary series Heart of Invictus.”
A movie about an athletic competition for injured veterans probably won’t generate as much buzz as the project in which Harry and Meghan dished out about their tense relationship with the royals.
But it’s a passion project for Harry, and as long as the people who sign the checks still believe the Sussexes, they have a shot at making it to the top American media figures.
