Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have paid back the cash taxpayers shelled out for their Frogmore Cottage apartment, the couple announced today.
Harry and Meghan came under fire for renovating the property at public expense after moving out of Kensington Palace.
Just months later they quit the royal family and moved to North America, first heading to Canada before settling in the US. A source close to the Duke confirmed that The Prince recently (and voluntarily) repaid the amount in full to the Sovereign Grant.
The statement from the Sussex spokesperson further says: “This contribution, as originally offered by Prince Harry, has fully covered the necessary renovation costs of Frogmore Cottage a property of Her Majesty The Queen, and will remain the UK residence of The Duke and his family,
Last week, the couple announced a major deal with Netflix, reported to be worth £112 million, to make documentaries and children’s shows.
It was initially thought it would take them 11 years to pay back the huge sum.
This deal makes the couple completely independent of Harry’s father Prince Charles.
