Here’s How Assets Divide In The Event Of Royal Divorce
While we certainly hope that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry live a long and fruitful life together, the fact of the matter is: s#!t happens.
That said, let’s take a look at how things would breakdown if the royal swirl becomes undone.
According to TMZ, Prince Harry is worth an estimated $40 million. He splits the yearly earnings of Prince Charles’ estate with William and Kate, last year they shared $4.4 million.
Meghan is reportedly worth $5 million. International divorce lawyer Jeremy D. Morley says that in England recognize prenups, however, only as a guide for the judge, not as a binding agreement.
Here’s the rub. When it comes to dividing assets, both the joint income AND what each individual came into the marriage with is fair game. That is to say that the couple would split at least $45 million (Harry and Meghan’s initial worth).
It’s said that when Charles gave Diana a $23 million bag th in their 1996 divorce, it left him with basically nothing.
Nobody wants to be the broke Prince of Buckingham Palace.
