Meghan Markle news latest: Prince Harry & Meg slapped with HUGE £100k ‘council tax bill’ on sprawling California mansion


Meghan & Harry have been slapped with HUGE six-figure “council tax” bill on their sprawling Montecito mansion.

According to the Sunday Mirror, documents from 2021-22 show that two payments of £51,978 were placed on their bills by Santa Barbara County – adding up to a whopping £103,995.

The first instalment of the tax bill was due on December 10, the second on February 1 – with a 10% penalty for any bills not paid by April 11.

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

The Duke of Sussex told the world he was “cut off financially” by the Royals when he sat down for his infamous interview with Oprah last year.

But Prince Charles’ annual report showed his youngest son received a “substantial” sum from him after Megxit.

Figures show he gave both the Sussexes and Cambridges a share of £4.45million, despite Harry claiming he had been hung out to dry by the Firm.

And Meghan and Harry have been raking it in thanks to a number of lucrative media deals with Netflix and Spotify – worth a combined payout of £130 million.
