Four years before Princess Diana tragically died in a car accident in August 1997, she had signed her will which left her sons William and Harry a secure future.
Prince Harry inherited a large part of his mother’s possessions but had to wait until his 30th birthday to get his inheritance.
When Prince Harry resigned from the royal family, his financial benefits as a member of “the firm” were cut off. It was at that point that Harry began to make use of the inheritance left to him by his late mother, Princess Diana.
How much money did Diana leave Harry
The Duke of Sussex, 37, received from his late mother’s estate an estimated inheritance of 16 million US dollars, this includes some of the assets Diana left such as jewelry, stocks and other personal items. Thanks to that money Harry and Meghan were able to separate from the royal family and live independently.
According to The Telegraph, what Harry inherited from Diana was originally $8.9 million. That money was invested and accrued substantial interest. Which led to Harry inheriting in his 30s, $13 million.
Coupled with the inheritance Princess Diana left Harry and the multi-million dollar deals the Sussexes signed with Netflix and Spotify, they are now financially independent of the royal family.
