Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have had no issues related to money so far, despite leaving the royal family within less than two years of their marriage. Months after leaving the United Kingdom in January 2020, the royal couple came up with Archewell to focus on media production. They have made different umbrellas under Archewell to produce a variety of content.
In September 2020, Archewell productions signed a $100 million with the American streaming platform Netflix. The couple will be producing various forms of content, including docuseries, children’s shows, fiction shows, etc. With all the incentives and bonuses, they are can earn as much as $150 million from the streamer.
Meanwhile, the couple also has an $18 million deal with Spotify for three years. With such big deals, it is understandable that the couple has a combined net worth of $60 million. But what was Meghan Markle’s net worth before meeting the royal Prince when she was such an actress and not the Duchess of Sussex?
Net worth of Meghan Markle before her marriage to Prince Harry
Meghan Markle’s net worth before the royal wedding was extremely low compared to what she has now. The former American actress had a net worth of $5 million before her relationship with Prince Harry, as quoted by Celebrity Net Worth. The Duke of Sussex, on the other hand, had a net worth of $20 million before taking the plunge with Meghan Markle.
If we talk about her income before marriage, during the peak of her career, the American star charged a whopping $50,000 per episode for the hit television drama Suits. Her salary for a year was roughly $450,000, while she earned a significant $4 million pre-tax combined from the seven seasons from 2011 to 2017.
Further, the Duchess of Sussex earned a good amount of money from her lifestyle blog, The Tig, which enjoyed a good social media fan following. It had 80,000 followers on Facebook, 35,000 followers on Twitter, and three million followers on Instagram.
Apart from that, Meghan Markle enjoyed good sponsorship deals from her site and it is believed that she was able to make $80,000 per year from the website. However, both her major sources of income came to an end in 2017. Before joining the royal family, the Suits alum said goodbye to her lifestyle blog and acting career.
