In the famous interview with Oprah, Harry and Meghan revealed that the royal family cut off their allowance.
Harry said: "My family literally cut me off financially."
But it's since been revealed Prince Charles helped with the transition of Harry and Meghan to financial independence until last summer.
"That funding ceased in the summer of last year. The couple are now financially independent," a senior Clarence House spokesperson said.
So now they're financially independent — how have they managed to save enough cash for a £10million house?
Here's how the couple earn their money now…
How rich are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry?
The couple are known to be wealthy.
Meghan was reported to have earned at one time over £38,000 per episode of Suits, the legal drama she used to feature in.

Harry's royal commitment and family funds prop up most of his fortune and as he is no longer a working royal, he can make money from elsewhere.
Their combined net worth is estimated to have recently skyrocketed to between £96-100 million.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry house price
Harry and Meghan bought a nine-bedroom, 16-bathroom mansion in Montecito, California for around £10 million in June 2020.
Recent estimations believe that the home is now worth three times the value the Sussexes paid for it.
The property has a gym, spa, tennis court and pool, as well as a separate guest house and shed for rescued hens.
Montecito is a wealthy area full of celebs like Ariana Grande, Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey.
Where do Meghan and Harry get their money?
Since stepping down from royal duties, the couple can now look to extend their business interests elsewhere.
They have a deal with the streaming platform Spotify, reported to be worth around £18 million.
The couple also signed a huge deal with Netflix. Estimations of the deal vary, but it is believed to be north of £74 million.
Harry said: "From my perspective all I needed was enough money to be able to pay for security, to keep my family safe."
It is believed that prior to stepping down, 95% of their income came from Prince Charles.
Harry also has his claim to a share of around £13 million left for him by his mother, Princess Diana.
