Prince Harry alleged that he was “cut off” from receiving money from the Royal Family after stepping down from his role in 2020. Now, former model Leilani Dowding has shared her thoughts on the claims, calling them “insulting”.
It’s a joke, it’s actually an insult.
Harry, 36, made several bombshell claims against his family during a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.
During the interview, he alleged that his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, 39, was denied help while suffering with her mental health.
The Duke went on to say that they were “literally cut off financially” from the Royal Family during the first quarter of 2020.
He added that he had the money left to him by his mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales and the money he received from Spotify and Netflix after signing deals with them.
Last week, Buckingham Palace and Clarence House shared their annual financial statement for the Sovereign Grant Report for the year 2020-2021, which is released following instruction from Her Majesty’s Government.
The Royal Family release their spending through the Sovereign Grant Report on an annual basis.
Palace accounts showed that Prince Charles contributed £4.5 million towards the lives of his two sons, Prince William, 39, and Harry.
Harry had said that he was “cut off” in the first quarter of 2020, with a spokesperson clarifying: “The Duke’s comments during the Oprah Winfrey interview were in reference to the first quarter of the fiscal year which starts in April. The same date the transitional year the Sandringham agreement began and that is in alignment with the Clarence House accounts.”
However, reacting to the news, former Real Housewives of Cheshire star Leilani Dowding, 41, told Express.co.uk: “They say they were cut off. When I was 18 and I did Page 3, I was cut off meaning I had to pay for my car.
“I had to pay for wherever I was going to live, I had to pay for my phone bill and as an 18-year-old girl I got cut off and I worked my way through it.”
Leilani claims her family cut financial ties with her after it emerged she had left Royal Holloway London, where she had been studying economics, to pursue a career as a glamour model.
“Then you find out that he [Prince Harry] said he got cut off, then you find out he’s actually had a substantial amount,” she raged.
She continued: “You’re telling me you got cut off, i’s actually an insult.”
Leilani went on to explain: “It is insulting, my parents said when I did Page 3, ‘Right, that’s it, you know, you’ve made a choice, you live by your choice, we support you not financially,
“We support your decisions but if this is a choice you’ve made in life and you’re going to quit university, then we’re not paying for you anymore.
“So to hear them say they got cut off and they get £4.5 million [shared between both William and Harry] is laughable, it’s horrific.”
Last year, Harry and Meghan signed a deal with Netflix that was estimated to be worth a total of £71 million.
The couple announced in January 2020 that they intended to “step back” as senior members of the Royal Family.
Meghan and Harry intended to live a “financially independent” lifestyle and would no longer work as members of the Mountbatten-Windsor family.
They said they would repay the £2.4 million renovation costs to their British home, Frogmore Cottage and would be supported financially by Prince Charles.
