Harry and Meghan drive a £170,000 Range Rover – just like the ones favoured by the Royals

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been spotted driving around California in a £170,000 Range Rover – just like the ones favoured by royals from the Queen and Prince Philip to the Cambridges.

However, while the company has a lease agreement with the royal household which allows them to use a fleet of brand its new vehicles, it is not known if the couple still make use of this given they are no longer working royals.

An Invictus Games source told the Mail On Sunday that the couple are not entitled to a freebie vehicle via the car manufacturer’s sponsorship of an upcoming event, planned for The Hague next year.

This calls into question how the couple are financing the luxury vehicle and whether they had to pay for it with their own cash.

The air of mystery comes after Prince Harry and Meghan said they had been ‘cut off’ financially from the royal family after stepping down from Royal life last year. 

In the couple’s Oprah Winfrey interview the Duke of Sussex said they had to go for Netflix and Spotify deals – worth an estimated £80million – to pay for his security after his family cut him off. 

Asked about the money-spinning partnerships, Harry told Miss Winfrey: ‘My family literally cut me off financially and I had to afford security for us.

‘But I’ve got what my mum left me and, without that, we would not have been able to do this.’ 

Before he stepped back from his royal duties, Harry received the vast majority of his income from the Duchy of Cornwall – a portfolio of property and financial investments managed by Prince Charles.

Earlier today it was revealed that more than 90 minutes of unseen footage from the Oprah interview could be aired to the public by ITV.

A source told the Sunday People: ‘There is a lot of interest in showing the interview in full.

‘The original programme was the biggest show of the year so far in the UK and was bought by firms around the world.’

They added: ‘Oprah’s production company know they’re sitting on a goldmine so it’s possible a deal could be done.’

It comes after CBS presenter Gayle King said she had spoken to the Sussexes who told her that conversations between Prince Harry, his brother and their father Prince Charles were ‘not productive’.   

She told CBS This Morning: ‘Well I’m not trying to break news, but I did actually call them to see how they were feeling, and it’s true, Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too.

‘The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation.

‘And I think what is still upsetting to them is the palace keep saying they want to work it out privately, but yet, they believe these false stories are coming out that are very disparaging against Meghan, still.

‘No one in the Royal Family has talked to Meghan yet, at this particular time.

‘And I think it’s frustrating for them to see that it’s a racial conversation about the Royal Family when all they wanted all along was for the royals to intervene and tell the Press to stop with the unfair, inaccurate, false stories that definitely have a racial slant.

‘And until you can acknowledge that, I think it’s going to be hard to move forward. But they both want to move forward with this and they both want healing in this family. At the end of the day, that is Harry’s family.’

The Cambridges have not discussed the rift the interview has caused, although a week ago Prince William was forced to speak out at another royal event and publicly hit back against Harry and Meghan’s race claims, insisting, ‘We’re very much not a racist family’. 

It came after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said racism drove them out of Britain in their two-hour CBS interview. 

Prince  Harry also said he felt let down by his father and wanted to heal the relationship but ‘there’s a lot of hurt that’s happened’.
