How Much Money Is Meghan Markle Really Worth?
Meghan Markle may be living a lavish lifestyle after marrying into the British royal family, but Prince Harry’s beloved wife was doing quite well on her own during her days as a successful Hollywood actress. Let’s answer the question on everyone’s minds: How much money is Meghan Markle really worth?
Meghan Markle wasn’t raised as a royal, she did have a rather privileged childhood. When she was young, her now-estranged father, Thomas Markle, worked in the entertainment industry. Naturally, the future actress often visited him on set. She wrote for The Tig in 2016:
“My father was the lighting director on two television shows as I was growing up. And there I was… surrounded by famous actors and their glam teams, multi-million dollar budgets, and crew lunches that always included filet mignon and enough sweets to make you think you were at Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory.”
While Markle’s family wasn’t necessarily as rich as those around them in the business, her father did win $750,000 when she was nine years old. Her half brother, Tom Markle Jr., told the Daily Mail in 2017:
“That money allowed Meg to go to the best schools and get the best training,”
Following her private school education, Markle went off to study at Northwestern University, where she majored in both theater and international studies. It was obviously money well spent.
