Prince Harry got share of £4.45million from Charles after Megxit despite claims he was 'cut off financially'

PRINCE Harry got a  “substantial” sum from the bank of dad  after Megxit — despite his claims he was “cut off financially”.

 Charles’s annual report, released by Clarence House last night, shows he gave the Sussexes and Cambridges a share of £4.45million.

The cash is listed as for   “funding the activities” of Harry, Meghan, William and Kate, and is typically split between the brothers. 

Palace sources refused to reveal the exact amount given to Harry, 36 — which covered the first four months of their  “transition period”. 

And the report said he will get no more  handouts from his father.

A source said: “In January 2020 when the Sussexes announced  they were going to move away from the  working royal family, the Duke said that they would work towards becoming financially independent.

“The Prince of Wales  allocated a substantial sum to support them.

“That funding ceased in the summer of 2020, and the couple are now financially independent.” 

Harry is now largely funded by a £112million Netflix deal. He has a mortgage on his £11million mansion in Montecito, California.

The  source said Charles  wished to support his son and wife, adding the split “is a matter of enormous sadness to the family”.

Asked about Harry’s claim during his Oprah interview that he was cut off financially, the source said: “I wouldn’t acknowledge that they are dramatically different. 

“All I can tell you are the facts. The Prince (Charles) wanted to help make this work.”

Harry’s biographer Penny Junor added:  “I’m not surprised Charles has given Harry money. He cares about his son and is a  generous man. Why did Harry say he was cut  off financially? Charles will have been enormously hurt by that comment. I feel  sorry for him.”

 Harry is believed  to have been left £7.5million after mum Diana’s death in 1997. It is   thought he shared a £70million inheritance from the Queen Mum in 2002.

He pocketed a £35,000-a-year Army wage for ten years. And he was bankrolled by at least £2.3million from  Charles every year.

Meanwhile, accounts show the Queen lost £10.6million  last year — as Covid hit visits to her palaces.

She has promised to tighten her belt after income plummeted from £20m to £9.4m. The royals overspent by £17.6m  on the Buckingham Palace refurb. They drew £2.3m  from reserves and made £10.2m   in savings elsewhere.
