Apparently, someone actually set up a fundraising page on GoFundMe to help Prince Harry and Meghan Markle pay off the $11 million mansion they recently purchased in California. The page was set up shortly after the couple’s Oprah interview.
It has since been pulled down after only raising just over a $100.
The Daily Mail explains:
A fundraising campaign set up to help Prince Harry and Meghan pay the £11million mortgage on their California home has been closed after raising just £78.64.
The GoFundMe page was set up by Anastasia Hanson, 56, from California, two days after the couple’s bombshell Oprah interview and titled ‘Harry and Meghan $5 Donation to Buy Home (£3.61)’.
Organiser Ms Hanson wrote on the page that the ‘jobless’ Duke and Duchess of Sussex had been going through a ‘very rough time’ after having funding for their security and lifestyle pulled by the Royal family, The Sun reports.
Speaking during their interview with Oprah, aired last Sunday in the U.S, Prince Harry revealed that the couple had been ‘cut off financially’ after they stepped down from Royal life abandoning up to £8.4million of funding and services.
I was not only shocked that someone would set up a GoFundMe page for the celebrity millionaires, but that people actually donated the equivalent of US$109 for their mansion.
And according to a recent YouGov poll, the couple’s Oprah interview bombed as the survey showed their popularity plummeted after the interview.
The Daily Caller writes:
Megyn Kelly said Meghan Markle and Prince Harry “aren’t fooling anyone” as she shared a poll showing the royal couple’s plummeting popularity after tell-all interview.
“After Oprah interview, only 3 in 10 [people] see Meghan Markle favorably [and] more [people] dislike Harry than like him – a new low for both of them,” Kelly tweeted Friday, along with a poll showing the duchess and duke’s popularity has dropped in the United Kingdom.

“These two aren’t fooling anyone, and no one feels sorry for them,” she added.
