Prince Harry revealed that the royal family "literally cut me off financially" after he and Meghan Markle stepped back as working royals. Speaking with Oprah Winfrey in their tell-all interview that aired Sunday, Prince Harry said the idea of deals with Spotify and Netflix came after "my family literally cut me off financially." Harry said that he was cut off in the first quarter of 2020 — shortly after he and Meghan announced they would step back as senior members of the royal family. He added that he had the money left to him by his late mother, Princess Diana. "Without that, we wouldn't have been able to do this," he said, likely referring to the family's move to California. The Duke of Sussex added, "All I wanted was enough money to get security and keep my family safe."
