Harry has lived in small houses before, Nott Cott and Frogmore Cottage. So has Meghan. She lived in a small house in Canada and also in LA with her first husband before and during their marriage.

And we don’t know that he won’t have the income to maintain the lifestyle for his family. Presumably Netflix and Spotify executives were smart enough to see the potential in he and Meg or they wouldn’t have signed them up in the first place.


There’s no evidence that Harry isn’t happily married, or that he will lose his family due to financial or other pressures. God knows, they’ve survived a tremendous amount of pressures of all kinds since their wedding.

And surely it’s up to the couple as to what size house they buy and what they paid for it. It’s nobody’s money but their own, and IMO it’s no business of anybody else’s what they do with their income.

I agree with all of your post except this last part. Harry is the one who brought his finances into the public sphere by publicly complained about his family cutting him off financially. If Harry can publicly criticize his family for cutting him off, other people can publicly criticize his lifestyle and spending habits.

I agree - it would be no-one's business if Harry hadn't whinged and moaned about Prince Charles not supporting him, and how he's only able to cope because of the money he inherited from Diana, as if everyone is supposed to feel sorry for him that he's having to survive on a multi-million pound inheritance that earns more in interest every year than most people earn from doing a full time job. But, yes, if need be, I'm sure they could manage with a house that doesn't have 14 bathrooms or whatever this one's supposed to have! Frogmore Cottage isn't big.

Harry clearly thinks that he needs a mansion, with the 14 bathrooms.. or he wouldnt' have bought it.. but its true that when single he did live in smaller palces. however marriage presumably has made him think differently, and I suppose it is possible that he feels that he and his wife need a big big place and a very large income..
Possible that the fact that Frogmore wasn't so big and fancy.. was one of the issues in thier wanting to leave Royal life...

I agree. Seems like a lot of wishful thinking and projecting to me regarding the Sussexes and their marriage,

Whatever their financial status is or the lack of finances isn't really going to be made totally public except for the information Harry, himself, has put out there in the public domain. As with so many other young couples (well... I'm nearing 70 so they're young to me) that are starting a family and starting a new life in a totally new environment, there's going to be ups and downs and insides and outs. From everything I've seen of Harry and Meghan, they do very much come across as a "you and me against the world" kind of couple that will face things together whether for good or for bad.

This pandemic has put the brakes on life for just about all of us and I'm sure Harry and Meghan have come up against some brick walls too as far as getting their professional lives in gear.

I kind of think their situation right now is voiced nicely by Nietzsche when he said "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger ".

So, as the pandemic HAS caused massive financial problems for millions of people, you might think that a couple who are starting out in a new life would be cautious. It was obvious by last spring and summer that the pandemic would mean that businesses were going bust, that there was less work, that money would be short for most people So why take on a massive luxurious house.. when you can't be sure how you are going to pay for it?

As neither the US or UK taxpayers are up for the mortgage payments, nor are any members of Harry’s family, it’s Harry and Meghan’s money and how they are going to pay for it is surely up to them.

As I've said I don't recollect exactly but there were tales of Harry stripping off when he was supposed to be doing a scene from that film about Strippers (sorry i can't remember when it came out or what the title is). He was at a party for C's friends and the idea was that he'd strip down to his underwear but he went the whole hog. So he was a teenager. I think that Harry was fond of silly pranks, in his teens and twenties, including getting very drunk.....And I think that at times the getting drunk involved getting naked...

Agreed - and at the same time, it is up to Charles how he wants to spend his money. If Harry can criticize Charles for not spending money the way Harry wants Charles to, other people can criticize Harry for the way Harry spends money.

I personally don't like it when very wealthy people living in luxury preach that we all have to sacrifice to save the planet and share our resources with those less fortunate. I work for a charitable NGO so I agree with the sentiment, but I'd like to see a a lot more sharing from the one-percenters - which also includes the royal family.

I’ve never heard that story about an older teen Harry. However, I have read one that was second or even third hand that used to be repeated by biographer Angela Levin.

According to that story William and Harry arranged a 50th birthday surprise for their father. The brothers arranged some sort of a strip off as a joke. However, according to what Levin heard, Harry, who was 14 at the time, had too much to drink and stripped off completely, doing a runner among the guests, and embarrassing his father.

Angela Levin supposedly got this story from one of the guests but she used ‘reportedly’ when she spoke of it. Until Las Vegas that was the only incident I’ve ever read of Harry stripping off at parties or anywhere else and I’ve followed him since he was nineteen and have several bios of his which don’t mention the supposed incident at 14.

well regardless, its a free country, and people can comment on anyone they like and how they spend their money. If Harry and Meg are public figures and very rich, they are going to be the targets of comments from ordinary people. And the more they preach to us ordinary folk, the more likely they are to get caustic comments. Esp when Harry seems to have made it pretty clear that he believed (until disabused of the idea) that the tax payers of the UK or Canada would pay his security and if they didn't then his father would do so.

Yup. I haven’t said this before because it just occurred to me, but not only did Harry rip his father for cutting him off, he said said he was living on his mother’s inheritance. He knew exactly what he was doing when he did this, as so many already saw Charles as the villain and Diana as the saint. Oh, and not incidentally, he could have bought a less expensive “house”, but instead he chose to try and keep up with the Jones’ and blame his father...

Yes he was very clear on Oprah that he expected the British taxpayers to still cover his security once he left the family.

And he said that he had "ONLY" taken the Netflix deal when he was told the taxpayers in the UK or Canada would not pay his security and his father would no longer help him financially... So it makes you wonder how Harry really expected to make a living when he took on a pretty massive house. Was Charles expected to hand out even more than he had done when Harry was a working royal? Will Netflix's money fil the gap? Will Harry stil think it is beneath his dignity as a Prince to earn money?

Ironic.....or maybe not, since I imagine Harry knows that.

I’ve never liked talking about anyone’s finances, and I don’t begrudge where Harry or anyone else in the BRF got their money from, but as long as he made it a public issue....
