Blind Item!- Harry got a bigger inheritance from Grandma than William

“The ginger haired one might have got a larger inheritance from grandma than his brother, but it won't do the alliterate one any good unless she can pry it from him while they are still married. Perhaps a bigger "marketing" budget for the new company.”

Blind item?

It's commonly known that the Queen and Diana left Harry more, specifically because William would inherit the vast majority of the money as heir to the throne - something that he apparently will not have to wait until he's 70 to get, like dear old dad had to.

Whatever the Queen did or didn't leave anyone PALES in comparison to what Charles, then William, get for being King.

Yeah, I think King Charles, no matter what, never would remove Harry's name as a beneficiary on whatever Payable Upon Death financial accounts he has created.

KC knows Harry will need it. And he knows, right now, he has to make sure Harry isn't at the mercy of Willliam who, after Charles is dead, would like to see Harry living in a van down by the river, if he could manage it.

If Meghan has any notion of contemplating divorce, that's on the back burner until Charles dies.

She's not going to be the ex-wife when Harry comes into money. After that, I predict she'll jettison Harry, unless he dumps her first

So Harry and his two kids will get a piece of money every five or ten years or so. Charles has a heart. He is not cold and unforgiving. He knows WIlliam is.

R6, Diana’s will was made public; she divided her estate evenly between her sons. The Queen Mother was heavily in debt when she died. It’s well-known that the royals don’t divide up their funds—everything passes from one monarch to the next. Everyone else in the family is supported comfortably by the King or Queen to the extent that they stay on message.

Charles has probably already made private provision for his heirs because under UK tax law, anything you leave seven years before your death (usually in trust) is exempt from estate tax at 40% or whatever it is. William and Harry paid a big chunk of what Diana left them in tax.

R30, she spent money with abandon, a million a year just on racing and horses, supposedly. I have heard, but can’t find Internet references to it now, that for some years in the 70s and 80s, before she was really ancient, she was the largest single buyer Veuve Clicquot champagne had.

Now the fact that she had £7,000,000 in debits when she died does not mean she died broke. Her personal estate was valued £50-£70,000,000 when she died, including fabulous jewels, a Monet and several Faberge eggs. The Monet and the Faberge were transferred to the royal collection to be held in trust for the nation however. A large portion of her estate was money she had put into a trust in 1994, 2/3 of her net worth at the time, for her grand and great-grandchildren.

I don’t understand why this is a blind item, nor why it’s being posted now. This was widely reported almost two years ago. Maybe it’s because she died on March 30 twenty-two years ago. CDAN must just look for news stories a few years old that people have forgotten to rehash and this happened to come up in the timeline.

The monarchy benefits from a law which allows the monarch’s private fortune to pass down to the next monarch, free of inheritance tax, so QEII’S fortune (in the hundreds of millions, at least) passed on to Charles. Queen Elizabeth II may have listed some desired bequests, but the vast majority of the fortune will pass through Charles to William.

When things in a family such as the Windsors get so bad, betrayal is the only thing that will make most of them sit up and take notice. Trying to reason with people like that in the background is useless. You have to do something that embarrasses them publicly to get their attention. I think Harry did exactly what was needed. At least now the rest of the family knows they'd better watch their step. I'm betting Harry knows infinitely more of their dirty secrets that could be revealed if they don't.

So, R47, just to follow your reasoning, I think was the word, Harry is entitled to hold those dirty secrets on a coercive basis to assure they follow what I guess would be his version of watching the step, and that's ok, but he is not obligated to expose all he knows about this venal bunch on an ethical basis so that we can all form our opinions? Because I guess that would undermine his ability to extort? Or police them based on some universal ethical standard that we assume we all share with him?

If the only way to let them know they can't control you is to hold their secrets over their heads, well that's just the price that must be paid.

It's different when it's your child vs your trouble-making brother, whom you know has already had so many chances and has had it easier than you who's always had to be the good, sensible one.

R47, you're saying that Harry blackmails his family whenever he wants money. Blackmail is a crime so Harry and Meghan are criminals if your post is true. If he is indeed trying to blackmail his family, it's not working out, is it? Because he and his wife are hurting for money and have been ostracized by the royal family, the British public and most of the world at this point. His father barely gave him the time of day when Harry flew back to London after the King's cancer diagnosis, and his brother just ignores him. They're not exactly falling over themselves to give him what he wants.

Harry has plenty of dirt of his own. There are stories out there of him beating up prostitutes, using racist slurs when he was in the army, and paying someone to do his exams in college (because he's not that bright). The BRF had to work overtime to cover for him.

He has said in recent interviews that he would like to reconcile with his family but they're the ones who don't want to reconcile with him.

R63 Doubtful. That family has an obvious pecking order, even for grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The children of the heir come first, then the children of the male line (by age), then the elderly offspring of the beloved dead uncles (Henry and Georgie), and whatever coins are left over go to the children of the womenfolk.

Charles and his sons.

Then Andrew and his girls.

Then Edward and his freaks.

Then the Gloucesters, Kents, and maybe Alexandra.

Anne's children get to do BBC interviews, and are allowed to cash the checks afterward. And if Lady Sarah weren't so beloved by the family, she'd be sleeping in the stables with Fergie.

R47, you may well be right, but Harry also learned something. He benefited financially from his TV special and his book, but it is no joke out here. Once you step out of the bubble of incredible wealth and privilege, you better keep your mouth shut if you expect to benefit financially at any future time from you blood ties. And that is the truth as contradictory as it seems. I wonder if Charles will stipulate that HArry's inheritance comes with strings involving his discretion about the family so as not to undermine William. Although to be honest, William is going to make some drastic changes. He will definitely be king. But he is going to modernize it big time.

Markle has a degree from Northwestern University in International Relations. She served an internship in a foreign embassy.

Those two facts, among others (mid 30s, been around the block a few times) always had me puzzling as to why she wasn't motivated to research what milieu was getting into, why she wasn't able to read the room when she was introduced to the BRF as Harry's girlfriend.

Why didn't she know that to be a working Royal wasn't to be a celebrity? I think it's reasonable to wonder about that.

I'm not excusing any negative behaviors from others she was subject to while in the immediate orbit of the BRF, and from the tabloids.

But I do wonder about how she's expressed her total surprise about what she was getting into.

It all suggests to me ulterior motives by her.

There is an artifice to Markle. And, she's just plain unlikable. They both are.

What Meghan didn't understand was the entire concept of the House of Windsor's commitment to service and also to a hierarchical structure. I don't think Meghan had a problem with the commitment to service. But the structure was etched in stone and was inalterable. So it was The Queen, Charles & Camilla, William and Catherine, then Harry. She could not promote herself and be the focus of attention. It was disruptive to the order of things. It would never ever change. She could not embrace anything the Firm defined as controversial, and go off and promote it. There were just too many guard rails for her and she resented it. As for the pecking order, when Charles became King, William would move up. He was the future King. Harry was always going to be twelve steps behind, figuratively speaking. He had a role to play and it was never going to change. I don't think she could accept that.

This right here^ by r86.

I thought Markle was shrewd, and I mean that in a good way; more hard-headed about where her life was when she snagged Harry.

I thought she would think, "This is the role of a lifetime. True, I won't be at the same stature as Kate, but I won't have the same degree of responsibility and headaches, either."

That I was wrong about that? Ok.

But I don't think their desired "A List" celebrity gig has been achieved by them.

I think it's not to be dismissed out of hand that they themselves are realizing they may have cut off their noses to spite their face.

It will be interesting to see if Markle follows through on accompanying Harry to the Invictus games in the UK.

See? At least with me they've managed to turn their failures into a cause to keep my interest. That's saying something for them.

She also bred racehorses, which is incredibly expensive. She was infamous for her overspending, and her daughter had to bail her out on many occasions. She was always in trouble with Coutt’s bank. She was indulged by the public because they were amused by the cheek of it.

R89, narcissists never see their own mistakes or flaws - it's always someone else's fault. Narcissists like the Harkles just see themselves as victims.

From R80

[quote] Markle has a degree from Northwestern University in International Relations.


No, she does not.

This tale has been floating around since it first popped up on the old Dangling Tendrils threads.

Given that there was suspicion at the time that this was not true, I hunted around and found the following. A copy of the program from Northwestern University's Annual Commencement on June 20, 2003.

See page 21, column 3. Name: Rachel Meghan Markle. Her degree was a "Bachelor of Science in Communications" from "The School of Communication".

It's because Harry is the hot one.

Harry got more money up front because William as Prince of Wales has access to vast amounts of money from the Duchy of Cornwall. It”s basically a mediaeval slush fund beyond the usual scrutiny.

Well Charles is now worth quite a bit. So maybe he will fix it up so Harry will never have to ask William for anything. If Harry would just sit down and keep his mouth shut and avoid tabloid type publicity, he might be invited to serve on the boards of a few organizations that pay their board members a generous stipend. That would give him the foundation he might need to do some credible charity work with two or three organizations and not be like horsehit. Horseshit is everywhere. I'm not too interested in what his wife does. I have a feeling they will split up once Charles is gone and Harry gets his money.I never thought I would see Beatrice and Eugenie as examples, but Harry needs to follow their path. They both have jobs and they both do some decent charity work. Zara Tindall has horses, but Peter Phillips has a real job and he does product endorsement deals. So does George Clooney for that matter. Of course Clooney is a celebrity not a Royal.

Zara Tindall is an Olympic Gold Medalist and has lots of endorsement deals. Her gold medal was earned honestly.

Harry loves the attention. When he went on-stage for that Covid event a few years ago, he was lapping up the applause and whistles from the crowd.

He thinks he's so important that people are out to hurt/kill his wife. Most people just love watching them grasp and fail.

Harry was popular in the UK before Meghan. Not so much now. If he were to come back I don't think he'd be as welcome as he once might have been. That ship has sailed. People have moved on and right now, Charles has a lot of sympathy and support from the public. Meghan especially, and HArry better "read the room." so to speak.
