Meghan Markle allegedly demanded $90 million and threatened the royal family with a tell-all, according to an outlet.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry already left the U.K. and settled down in the U.S.A. for a quieter and more peaceful life. However, one should take the report about Markle asking money from the royal family with a grain of salt because there is no evidence supporting it.
Meghan Markle “allegedly” threatened the royal family
National Enquirer published a report claiming that Meghan Markle threatened the royal family with a tell-all book to give her $90 million.
“Meghan will demand a stunning $90 million settlement in return for keeping silent,” the tabloid’s headline in a February cover read.
Moreover, the outlet quoted an alleged “high-level courtier” who told the magazine that the royal family does not want a “no-hold-barred TV interview” or “tell-all book” from the Duchess of Sussex.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge allegedly objected. Prince William and Kate Middleton believed that the “Sussexes don’t deserve a dime.”
The dubious source added that the Duchess of Sussex plotted it all along because “she never fit into the royal life.” Also, she didn’t like it that she was called “Diva Duchess for being difficult and demanding.”
The outlet also claimed that Markle snubbed the Queen. Furthermore, it alleged that Prince Harry’s wife was jealous of her sister-in-law, Middleton.
That’s not all, Markle reportedly wanted to “make the Sussex brand into a global empire.
Meghan never demanded cash
Gossip Cop debunked the report for several reasons.
First, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did not withdraw money from the royal funds.
They took out a mortgage when they purchased their Montecito mansion.
“There’s been a lot of speculation about Prince Charles potentially funding this,” royal biographer Omid Scobie told Entertainment Tonight.
“But this is really a moment for them to find their independence. They’ve done this on their own. Like many couples, they have a mortgage.”
Second, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are not feuding. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge greeted Markle on her birthday.
Third, there is no tell-all book. Prince Harry and Markle have denied any contribution to Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s biography about them entitled Finding Freedom.

Meghan acting like a diva: False
Meghan Markle has been subjected to various rumors all over the years from the time she started dating Prince Harry. Just recently, the same outlet claimed that she acted like a diva on her birthday.
Prince Harry and Markle didn’t respond to the Queen and the Cambridge’s birthday greetings. A dubious source claimed that Prince Harry could have phoned his family, but Markle stopped him.
However, the report was also not true. Prince Harry and Markle recently praised Her Majesty for her role in the Commonwealth.
“I think everything that my grandmother wanted to achieve when she took this huge responsibility on, she’s managed,” Prince Harry said.
