2. Residual income from Suits
Prior to her engagement, Meghan Markle earned $50,000 per episode of Suits. Town and Country Magazine also suggests she amassed an additional $80,000 in sponsorship and endorsement income.
Though Markle will be officially written out of her television role in season seven, she’ll likely continue to pocket residual money from the show as it re-airs on cable. Anytime a show replays on TV, the actors get more money. For example, the stars’ residual income from the TV show Friends has reached millions of dollars. Though Suits isn’t quite as popular as Friends is, Markle will still see deposits for her role as the lawyer Rachel Zane.
Next: Prince Harry held a regular job, too.
