Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are financially independent of Prince Charles, a new report says.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had been receiving a sum of money from the Prince of Wales‘s Duchy of Cornwall estate, however, that is no longer the case after inking a huge deal with Netflix.

The new deal, is rumored to be within 50 to 100 million.

Prince Charles Keeps A Framed Photo Of This Moment With Meghan Markle at Clarence House

Many things have been revealed about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle‘s lives as senior royals from the new “tell-all” book “Finding Freedom” from authors and royal insiders Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

From why Pippa Middleton was reluctant to invite Meghan to her wedding in 2017, to why this necklace caused such a big uproar.

However, there were some sweet things revealed in the book, including how Prince Charles keeps a very special photo of daughter-in-law Meghan at Clarence House.

If you remember, Charles stepped in for Meghan‘s father, Thomas, who couldn’t be at the wedding because of health issues, and walked her down the aisle. This is a moment he holds dear to his heart and as such, has a framed black and white photo of the moment at his residence in London.

A pal of the former actress shared in the book that Charles and Meghan have a great bond with each other.

“[Meghan] found such a supportive and loving father in Charles, which has really changed her life for the better,” they shared.

Another source added, “He likes very strong, confident women. She’s bright and she’s self-aware, and I can see why they’ve struck up a very quick friendship. Most of all, she’s married to [his] beloved youngest son and made him whole. Charles takes enormous delight and pleasure in that.”

Charles has also been known to call Meghan by the nickname of “Tungsten”, because like the metal of the same name, she is tough.

Princess Diana Seemingly Wanted Prince William to Be the Next King, Not Charles

An interview that Princess Diana did back in 1995 has resurfaced and in it, she gives a surprising answer on whether she thinks Prince Charles or Prince William should be the next King of England.

When Diana gave the interview, William was just 13-years-old, so he was not ready to take on such a big role.

“Do you think it would make more sense in the light of the marital difficulties that you and the Prince of Wales have had if the position of monarch passed directly to your son Prince William?” Martin Bashir asked her for the BBC1 Panorama interview (via People).

Diana responded, “Well, then you have to see that William‘s very young at the moment, so do you want a burden like that to be put on his shoulders at such an age? So I can’t answer that question.”

Martin then rephrased the question and asked, “Would it be your wish that when Prince William comes of age that he were to succeed the Queen rather than the current Prince of Wales?”

Diana said, “My wish is that my husband finds peace of mind, and from that follows others things, yes.”

Queen Elizabeth has publicly voiced her support for Charles to be her successor and royal experts say it’s highly unlikely that he will abdicate the throne to his son.

Duchess Camilla Makes a Rare Comment About Hers & Prince Charles' Future In The Royal Family

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, recently opened up about her future in the royal family.

During a recent royal visit to the Bristol Distribution Centre, the 73-year-old royal made a rare comment about her plans for the future with husband Prince Charles, 71.

Richard Sigward, a warehouse operator, who met the Duchess and Charles during a visit spoke to Hello mag about what they told her when the subject of retirement came up.

He personally told the royal couple that he had no plans to retire after working for the ASDA supermarket chain for 17 years and is currently 74 himself.

According to Richard, Camilla was in the same mindset and doesn’t see her or Charles retiring as working royals anytime soon.

β€œThe Duchess was saying to me she definitely agrees that if people can work and are happy to do it, they should carry on,” he said of their conversation. “She said she refuses to retire herself. The prince was the same.”

Earlier this week, Camilla became the first member of the British Royal Family to do this.

Prince Charles Reveals the 'Most Ghastly' Thing About Coronavirus

Prince Charles had been diagnosed with coronavirus earlier in the year and is now in good health. He was asked how it affected his determination to prevent another pandemic in the interview.

“Yes, it makes me even more determined to push and shove and shout and prod, if you see what what I mean. Whatever I can do behind the scenes sometimes…but yes, but I suppose it did, partly, and I was lucky in my case. I got away with it quite lightly,” he said.

“I had it, and I can so understand what other people are going through. I feel particularly for those who have lost their loved ones but were unable to be with them at the time. That’s, to me, the most ghastly thing,” he went on to say.

He also talked about how to help prevent future pandemics, including taking care of the planet.

“This is why I’m so determined to find a way out of this…it’s one of the reasons I’ve been trying to get the point across that we should have been treating the planet as if it was a patient long ago. No self-respecting doctor would have ever let the situation, if the planet is a patient, reach this stage before making an intervention,” he explained.

He also recently revealed why he’s been watching funny videos in quarantine…
