Harry and Meghans money plans were the forgotten fifth Beatle of Megxit

The money-making plans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are the "forgotten fifth Beatle of Megxit" according to one expert.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle departed from active work in the Royal Family back in 2020, splitting up the so-called Fab Four of the Royal Family at the time.

The pair, along with Prince William and Kate Middleton, had frequently been spotted working with one another at public engagements, but there was a fifth member lingering according to Daniela Elser.

Expert Elser alleges the "money" Harry and Meghan pursued was their "Pete Best" and the "forgotten" piece of their motivations to leave the Royal Family.

Elser also noted the flash wardrobes of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, expensive polo hobbies and fancy American estates.

Writing for her column on news.com.au, Elser alleged: "Oh sure, it’s the allegations of institutional racism and a cruel indifference to their mental health woes that get all the attention when it comes to the ‘why’ of Megxit."

That, however, does not get to the core of their motivations, with Elser claiming "a number of reports have also suggested that money might be the Pete Best, aka the forgotten Beatle, of this story".

The expert noted a key quote from Valentine Low's biography on the pair, which claimed Meghan had expressed shock at not being paid for royal engagements.

Daily Star previously reported the bombshell book claims from Low, whose allegations of a "different story" behind the scenes saw the Duchess allegedly fail "to understand the point" of public engagements.

Elser alleged the money woes of the Sussexes after they left the Royal Family were still a cause for concern.

She added: "The issue of who would foot the bill for the Sussexes’ post-Palace life has long proved a fraught, finger-pointing one."

Despite those money woes, it was claimed that at-the-time Prince of Wales, now King Charles, had "allocated a substantial sum" to them, Elser added.
