The couple owed £ 2.4 million to the prince’s homeland. It may take 11 years for the dukes to pay the debt.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made the first payment to the UK treasury on their debt for the repair of their British residence Frogmore House. The contribution amounted to 18 thousand pounds, and to pay the dukes of Sussex need 2.4 million pounds, writes the Daily Mail.
The couple, abandoning the duties of senior members of the British royal family, became financially independent and moved to live in the United States. In April, it was time to pay the bills.
It is noted that the payment of a debt from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may take 11 years.
The Frogmore House cottage was presented to the spouses by Queen Elizabeth II.
The cottage was in imperfect condition after it had previously been divided into five apartments for courtiers. Before the dukes entered Frogmore House, they made a luxurious renovation. 38-year-old Megan even opted for environmentally friendly, toxin-free paint.
As previously reported, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will release a book about the secrets of the royal court.
