Prince Harry says he couldn’t have left royal family without his mother’s money: “I think she saw it coming”
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey on CBS, Prince Harry revealed how he thinks his mother, the late Princess Diana, would react to him leaving his official role in the royal family.
Harry said the royal family cut him off financially in the first quarter of 2020, when he and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, planned to step back from their duties as “senior” royals and spend much of their time living outside the U.K. They have since inked deals with Spotify and Netflix, but at the time, they had “no plan,” Harry said.
“I’ve got all my mom left me and without that we would not be able to do this,” Harry said. According to BBC News, Harry and his brother, Prince William, received the bulk of the £13m fortune left by their mother when she died.
