- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are “relieved” and “pleased” that they’ve paid back British taxpayer money on Frogmore Cottage.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just got themselves a Netflix deal worth a rumored $50-100 million, and it allowed them to pay back British taxpayers for renovations on Frogmore Cottage. Which, CONGRATS! And according a source who spoke to Vanity Fair royal reporter Katie Nicholl, the couple are thrilled they were able to pay back the money so fast—especially since they faced a ton of criticism about how much their renovation cost.
The source says Meghan and Harry were “very relieved and very pleased” to have been able to pay back the money so quickly, explaining, “This has been a pro-active step and something they wanted to do from the outset. There was no requirement [from the Queen] for them to pay the money back but it was important to them that they did, and after the Netflix deal they were in a position to do so.

They do not draw income from the Duchy of Cornwall, as they did before they left Britain.”
Literally where do I hire Meghan and Harry’s financial advisor.
