The royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have finally been able to pay taxpayers back after using £2.4 million (N1.1b) of their money to refurbish their home at Windsor Castle. The couple made the payment after they signed a multi-million dollar deal with streaming service giant, Netflix, their spokesperson said in a statement.
Earlier this year, the couple revealed that they will be denouncing their royal responsibilities and seeking financial independence from the royal family. This meant that the couple had to give up their income, which at the time was funded by taxpayers.
The Duke and Duchess subsequently promised to pay back all the money they used to renovate their home, the Frogmore Cottage. According to their spokesperson, the money given back to the taxpayers fully covered all of the renovation costs.
While the amount the couple received from Netflix was undisclosed, The British Press Association did mention that they will be producing content that informs as well as gives hope. They also said that it will be inspirational family programming that tells a powerful story through a relatable lens.
The couple moved to Frogmore Cottage after living in Harry's late mother, Princess Diana's home in Kensington place west of London. They have since moved to the US with baby Archie.
Legit.ng previously reported that the co-CEO of the giant streaming service company, Reed Hastings, recently shared his thought and opinions on the couple's acceptance of the Netflix deal.
According to Hastings, the couple had multiple offers and had done thorough research before deciding on the huge Netflix deal. This is something that Reed has said he thinks is the best decision the couple could make, for both Netflix and themselves.
Hastings also shared a lot of excitement over his partnership with Meghan and Harry, saying that it was going to be "epic" having them at Netflix.
