PRINCE Charles felt total “relief” at getting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle off the British taxpayers’ payroll, it has been claimed.

Charles famously gave the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “a substantial sum” to start a new life in America after the runaway royals claimed they wanted to be “financially independent” and make their own fortune.

Royal accounts revealing the payment were made public just weeks after Harry shamelessly whined to Oprah Winfrey that Charles had cut him off financially following the move.

“I’ve got what my mum left me, and without that, we would not have been able to do this,” Harry complained.

But it was later revealed that Charles gave Harry, Meghan, Prince William and Kate Middleton a combined total of £4.5 million during the last financial year – a sum that would leave most families set for life.

Now royal biographer Ingrid Seward has told the Daily Mail: “I imagine Prince Charles will be relieved as they will be off his payroll now, and the British public will be relieved because they can pay back what they owe now on Frogmore Cottage, so it’s a win-win situation.”
