Those private hospitals are just that.  Private.  They even allow mothers to register under a alias.  That will be interesting to see, how fast she gets pregnant again. She is 38 and I doubt she will want to wait a couple of years to get pregnant.

But Meghan is no private person. The British taxpayers are funding her and little Archie's lifestyle that's why they have a damn right to know what happened, when and where.



I believe it's Charles who funds them, the taxpayer pays for the security.  According to Dickie Arbiter.
The only thing changing is the usual inherent goodwill that they're burning through so thoughtlessly.

You don't yank the chain of the British press. Don't people ever learn?

 Good post

You also don't yank the chain and burn through the goodwill of those who finace your lifestyle. Charles may fund them apart from security (which must be a pretty penny) but where, ultimately, does Charles' money come from? The Duchy of Cornwall. Now I've no doubt that there are lots of investments etc., and Harry has an inheritance from his mother (Duchy money at the heart of that too?) but at the end of it all, he and Meghan are taxpayer funded.
All this secrecy may very well come back and smack them in the face. It's not the Hollywood/celebrity world they are living in. If they want it to be, that can be arranged.

I want to say "someone tell Meghan that" but i have a feeling she has been told and doesn't care, and Harry is all "I married a Hollywood actress!" so he doesn't care either

Harry's inheritance from his mother did indeed have its source in the Duchy of Cornwall, as the settlement represented half the take-home profits during the marriage.  The money grew during the boys' growing up, but I doubt he has enough of his own even today to be able to buy a place of his own that's on par with Amner Hall.  I love to read the real estate ads in Country Life, and I think "oh, that one would appeal to a very ordinary California girl with delusions of English country life grandeur" but the price is like $5M.  I don't see it happening.  Grandpa or Great-grandma would have to pony up, as they did for Anne (Gatcombe Park) and the Cambridges.

I think Frogmore Cottage is all they will get from QEII. Amner Hall made sense for W&K, as Will is in the direct line. Anything grander for the Sussexes will have to wait upon Charles.

And even Frogmore is far more than they deserve.

Eh, a five-bedroom house is better than a two-bedroom they used to have.  I just find it amusing that apparently it's not so "protected" from prying eyes as they'd hoped, and it needs some further landscaping/securing.

It was a ten bedroom house upon gifting, they supposedly modified it into 5 as they joined the quarters together.  They could have made smaller rooms and kept 6-8 bedrooms. I think all the rooms will be more American-style and larger and open compared to the other royal residences.

It's sadly under a busy flight path and close to a graveyard and a during Frogmore House's open days its closer to public lots and driveways. I don't think this was first choice.

I thought that Frogmore House has 10 bedrooms.  Right after the announcement the press couldnít understand the difference between the house and the cottage.  Probably since the cottage made less sense being staff apartments and being smaller than what younger children typically get for their main residence.

mother's settlement was about £17M of which not much had been spent, there was a deed of variation after her death to put it into trust and the boys got some at 25 and some at 30. They also inherited off the Queen Mother but I think that was property

Was there not also some inheritance from Earl Spencer? I can't imagine it would have been much though.

I've seen Harry net worth estimated at anywhere for $25M to $40M (approx. £20M to £30M).  For you or I we'd be set for life (and probably leave a very nice nest egg for our kids) but with their spending...no way.

IIRK from the QEQM be got the lion's share of £15M (with interest built up since 1994).  They made have gotten bits and bobs from QEQM but the bulk was the trust funds she setup in 1994.  I don't know about Earl Spencer but whatever it was it wouldn't have been much...the nobility keep their estates together and the heirs get everything.

That money will have been wisely invested - even the interest alone will pay out a nice sum every year. But spending £100k on dresses and £10million on Hollywood hideaways? It's not going to last very long.

Exactly.  Wisely invested Harry could see a 10% return...using slightly funky math...45% of the return to taxes and half of the after tax reinvested to account for inflation would still give an income of between £550K and £825K (a more than comfortable living) or 5-8 haute couture dresses (without shoes and accessories).

Ok, but being 'gifted' with large houses and apartments which are then renovated to their specifications surely takes down some of their overhead expenses.

And even Frogmore is far more than they deserve.
