Here's How Much Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Could Make From Instagram

Now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are no longer working senior royals (or at least they won't be after their transition from royal life is complete this spring), the big question is how they're going to make a living. Their original plan to trademark the Sussex Royal brand has already been nixed by Queen Elizabeth. They couple have also faced backlash after giving a keynote speech in their first official engagement after stepping back from the royal family.

One possible outlet that the couple may consider to earn a living is Instagram. Being a paid social media influencer doesn't exactly seem like the most royal thing to do, but pretty soon they won't need the queen's permission and can break all the royal rules that they want.

As analytics platform told The Sun, based on recent growth their Instagram account could rake in as much as £85,271.19. That's just over $110,100 (according to Refinery29) per sponsored post.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a massive social media following

If the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do decide to monetize their Instagram account, they would potentially be making a lot more money than Prince William and Kate Middleton would if they did the same thing. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have 11.2 million followers, as do Middleton and Prince William on their own Instagram account, but the past couple months have caused Meghan and Harry to surge in popularity as fans have eagerly followed the drama surrounding Megxit and its aftermath.

In contrast, Prince William and Middleton could potentially earn £40,744.97 (just over $52,600).

Of course, none of the royals in question have actually mentioned the possibility of monetizing their Instagram accounts, but the information shows just how much potential there is for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's brand as they adjust to non-royal life.
