Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Won't Be Signing A Prenup

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won’t be signing a pre-nup agreement ahead of their May wedding, a palace source has told the Daily Mail.

Previous reports had suggested that Harry was being advised by courtiers to draw up an agreement before tying the knot with Meghan, but it now seems that the Prince sees this as an unnecessary precaution.

‘There was never any question in Harry’s mind that he would sign a pre-nup,’ the source told the Mail. ‘He’s determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.’

It’s been estimated that Harry has a fortune of around £30 million, having inherited £10 million from his late mother, Princess Diana, upon his 30th birthday, with a further £20 million in other assets. Meghan, too, has a fortune of her own, with an estimated net worth of £4 million. It’s previously been reported that she earned $50,000 per episode on Suits, giving her a salary of around $450,000 per year (or around £320,000).

While prenuptial agreements are common in the United States, the same is not yet true in the UK, where the agreements aren’t always legally binding. However, courts are increasingly taking them into account when dealing with divorce cases.

Harry certainly isn’t breaking with royal protocol in refraining from drawing up such an agreement; instead, he follows in the footsteps of his older brother, Prince William, and his father, the Prince of Wales, neither of whom signed prenups ahead of their marriages.

Kensington Palace has so far declined to comment on the topic, describing it as a ‘private matter.’

Meghan and Harry are set to marry on May 19th at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, and recently announced that they’ve extended an invitation to 2,640 members of the public, who’ll be able to watch the arrivals from a prime spot in the grounds of the castle. Jealous, us
