“It was terrifying to have my brother scream and shout at me, and my father say things that simply weren’t true, and my grandmother quietly sit there and sort of take it all in,” Harry says about a discussion he had with his family in 2020 when he and Meghan decided to leave their royal life behind.

What is Prince Harry’s net worth?

When Harry chose to leave his position in the royal family, he also walked away from a significant inheritance he would have received after the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. But the "financially independent" Harry is by no means hurting for money.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Harry still has a net worth of about $60 million. The $100 million deal Harry and Meghan made with Netflix for the docu-series and other shows contributed a big chunk to Harry’s bottom line.

Prince Harry received inheritance money from Princess Diana.

Harry and Meghan also signed a $30 million multiyear deal with Spotify. Publishing company Penguin Random House paid Harry $20 million for his memoir Spare, which is scheduled to be released in January 2023.

The documentary could deepen the rift between Harry and his brother.

If the relationship between Harry and Prince William was already strained, the new episodes in the Harry & Meghan docu-drama may further that divide. In the series, Harry makes several ‘incendiary allegations’ about his brother, The New York Times reports.

For example, Harry suggests that William’s communications aides planted negative stories about Meghan with the British tabloids to put William and Kate in a better light, the Times reports.

“I would far rather get destroyed in the press than play along with this game,” Harry said in the docu-series. “To see my brother’s office copy the very same thing we promised the two of us would never, ever do — that was heartbreaking.”
