This is what Harry and Meghan are giving up.


The British royal family is very rich, but not as rich as you might think. And that’s because of a centuries-old model for how they make their income — and taboos about earning a private income outside of their official duties.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking free from the rules of how royals make money, which just might be a savvy financial decision.

For the record:
These sovereign grants sound bad, but it is important to note that the government gets the profits from the lands. And the thing is, as Vox said about the Georges, it was a terrible deal for the monarchy. The grant gave them a lot of money each year, but the profits from the Crown Estate were actually far higher, meaning that this arrangement actually lowers your taxes.
