Meghan was left in shock when Beatrice revealed that the Sussexes had given up their Montecito mansion and were now staying in a $500-per-night hotel due to their financial difficulties. It seemed like a surprising turn of events for Meghan, who had always aspired to be part of high society. However, it appeared that she couldn’t quite climb the social ladder, lacking intellectual contributions that could match her ambitions.
Meanwhile, Beatrice’s husband, Eduardo Mabelli Muncie, continued to impress with his interior design projects. He recently unveiled a stunning apartment in New York City, set to be sold for a staggering $54.6 million. Eduardo’s lucrative contracts had firmly established Beatrice and him among America’s rich and powerful elite.
Beatrice now split her time between London and New York, enjoying a higher social status than Meghan ever achieved. In contrast, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were facing financial hardships, struggling to maintain their Montecito Mansion, which cost $100,000 annually to operate, not including the mortgage. Staying in a $500-a-night hotel seemed like a more affordable option, costing them around $180,000 a year, though still far less than their villa expenses.
Their excessive spending habits had caused their financial woes, with Meghan being particularly surprised to discover that Prince Harry had less money than she had imagined. A British biographer exposed their economic situation, highlighting that their lifestyle as working royals was unsustainable. Meghan had to adjust to a more modest lifestyle, no longer owning the Montecito Mansion, which they now used solely for photography purposes.
Their image as a power couple was starting to crumble as their businesses and finances faced challenges. Despite their aspirations to rule like royalty, they lacked the resources to support such a lifestyle. Furthermore, there were no new additions to their family, as Meghan and Harry remained childless.
Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice attended the Glastonbury music festival, where Harry paid tribute to a performer named Al Montgomery. While some friends were excited to see Harry’s video message, most of the festival-goers booed. Princess Beatrice and her husband, Eduardo Mabelli Muncie, left the festival immediately after the awkward moment, seemingly wanting to avoid further involvement in the situation.
