Meghan and Harry had committed to repay the cost of renovations at Frogmore Cottage when they left their royal duties and they kept their word. The Sussex have fully paid off their debt, as announced by their spokesperson.

It was an express repayment! Before moving to Frogmore Cottage in April 2019, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry asked for work to be done. In total, more than 2.4 million pounds sterling (2.7 million euros) were disbursed by the English taxpayer.

A few months later, the Sussex family announced that they were leaving their royal duties and moving out of this pretty, recently renovated house… While Queen Elizabeth II accepted their decision, she also asked that the cost of the renovations be reimbursed.

Archie’s parents accepted the deal and were to pay £18,000 every month for 11 years. To everyone’s surprise, the couple won’t wait until 2031 to repay the money to the taxpayer because they have already paid off their debt.

Their spokesman confided that Prince Harry had made a transfer of the remaining sum to their charge. Quoted by Royal scholar Richard Palmer, the spokesman said that Frogmore Cottage still remains the British residence of the Duke and his family.

Did they pay it all back through Netflix?

A few days ago, Meghan and Harry signed an important contract with the Netflix platform. In exchange for 150 million euros, the couple has committed to produce films or documentaries, including one that should be devoted to Diana. After the revelation of this collaboration, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown, the vice-chairman of the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee, felt that the couple would be able to afford to pay off their debts more quickly. Did he have a hunch?
