Netflix and chill: £100m deal gets Harry and Meghan out of the red
AFTER landing a reported £100m deal with Netflix, Prince Harry and Meghan have finally paid taxpayers back the £2.3m spent on renovations for Frogmore Cottage.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were urged by MPs to stump up the money after signing with the American streaming giant which produces royal drama series, The Crown. The couple – who had been paying back the cash in instalments – announced they had refunded the Sovereign Grant for the redevelopment of Frogmore Cottage on the Queen’s Berkshire estate. Sources close to the couple also claimed they would no longer be receiving handouts from Prince Charles as they sought to establish ‘financial independence’.
It was revealed in the wake of the couple’s decision to step back from their royal roles, the Prince of Wales would make a private financial contribution to help them during their first year away.
Now their taxpayer credit is settled, let’s give credit where credit is due.
But it’s ironic that it’s Netflix cash that has helped pay off the debt? The Crown paying off the crown as it were.
