And the British Royal Family is not an exception: Henry VIII had six wives, Princess Anne, the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, has separated from her husband, Captain Mark Phillips. Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson filed for divorce after six years of marriage. And, of course, one of the most famous royal divorced couples – Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

What will happen if Meghan and Harry separate?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot in May, 2018. Their beautiful wedding was broadcasted worldwide and viewed by millions of people.

After their marriage, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex still keep on intriguing the public every time they step out together. The newlyweds have been often accused of breaking the royal etiquette when they kissed or held hands in public. So what?! They are young and crazy in love with each other. Remember yourself when you just got married.

But still, let’s imagine that Harry and Meghan’s marriage fails. How will it influence the royal family? The Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn’t sign a prenuptial agreement. The royals are not really fond of prenups at all. Maybe, prenups are just not a British thing.

Therefore, if Harry and Meghan file for a divorce, all of the couple's wealth will be divided equally, not just what each spouse brought into a marriage.

What kind of money are we talking about? 

Meghan Markle was a successful actress before she married Harry. Her net worth is reportedly $5 million. As for Harry, no need to say that the Queen’s grandson is not in need. Jokes aside, Harry’s reported net worth equals around $40 million.

However, if the Duke and Duchess actually get divorced, it's not likely that the details of the settlement will be revealed to the public.

Anyhow, we are pretty sure that Harry and Meghan don't even consider splitting. They love each other, and talk about having kids in the nearest future. Hopefully, the royal family will not add another divorce to their list.
