Harry and Meghan face a council tax bill higher than £100,000
Their mansion in California, US, is estimated to be worth £19.4million

The fee is double what experts estimated and is based on the value of their mansion in California, US, the Sunday Mirror reported.

They bought their nine-bed, 13-bathroom home for around £11.5million in June 2020.

Harry and Meghan’s first payment was due on December 10 and the second was February 1, with a 10 per cent penalty for any bills unpaid by April 11.

A source said: “The bill is a huge sum but it’s peanuts in relation to their earnings.”

The property was bought for £17million by Russian businessman Sergey Grishin a decade before the Sussexes.

Experts say the Tuscan-style mansion is now worth £19.4million. 

It is 80 miles north of LA with a library, gym, cinema room, spa, pool, tennis court, guest house and a playground for Harry and Meghan’s children Archie, two, and Lilibet, eight months.

Harry, 37, also faces a huge income tax bill in April now he is resident in the US.
