Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, made the shocking announcement that they will be stepping back from senior royal duties back in January. Today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, officially leave their royal life behind to become “financially independent”. After living in Canada for the last six months, the Sussexes have reportedly set up a more permanent base in Meghan’s home city, Los Angeles, amid the coronavirus outbreak. So, how will they be able to fund their new US life?

The couple’s joint fortune is estimated to be around £23million, which will provide them with a comfy cushioning while they try to navigate the working world.
Today marks the start of a new chapter for the couple and their ten-month-old son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor as they ditch their lavish royal lifestyle for the glitzy celebrity life in Hollywood.
In line with their new glamorous lifestyle, the Duchess of Sussex announced recently she’s starring in her first film role since joining the Royal Family in 2018.
It was revealed that Meghan has narrated the forthcoming Elephant documentary on DisneyNature, which she recorded in exchange for a donation to the charity, Elephants Without Borders, instead of nabbing a paycheck.
The couple carried out their last royal engagements earlier this month, attending the Endeavour Fund Awards and the Mountbatten Festival of Music together.
Meghan also visited a secondary school in East London to mark International Women’s Day and met with young leaders from the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and the Association of Commonwealth Universities.
On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared their final post before they step down from royal duties.
The couple, who are rumored to be living in Los Angeles with their 10-month-old son, promised to continue their charity work behind the scenes, and revealed they were focusing “the new chapter to understand how to best contribute.”
Encouraging followers to be strong and positive amid the pandemic, they thanked fans for their support and said they looked forward to “reconnecting soon”, with the post-reading: “Thank you for your support, inspiration and commitment to the good in the world.”
The post, which had the comments switched off, racked up thousands of likes within minutes and signed off with “Harry and Meghan”. The comments on their remaining posts appear to also have been switched off.
Shared on their traditional navy blue template, the message begins by addressing the coronavirus pandemic, and reads: “As we can all feel, the world at this moment seems extraordinarily fragile.
“Yet we are confident that every human being has the potential and opportunity to make a difference—as seen now across the globe, in our families, our communities and those on the front line—together we can lift each other up to realise the fullness of that promise.”
It continues: “What’s most important right now is the health and wellbeing of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic.
“As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute.
