Anastasia Hanson, 56, from California told Britain’s The Sun. that she started the fundraiser because she was seriously sorry for the millionaire royal couple – afterwards Harry wailed in public to Oprah Winfrey about the palace’s financial foreclosure.
“When they came to the United States, they were unemployed and with limited resources,” said Hanson, who lives about 25 minutes from the royal couple’s palace in fashionable Montecito.
“They indicated they had a very difficult time, so this fundraiser is a way to offer help, compassion and love by paying off their home loan in full.”
In Markle and the Prince Sit down Bombshell TV Last week Harry defended the inking of a variety of hugely lucrative media deals since leaving royal life, saying, “My family literally cut me off financially and I had to afford security.”
Hanson’s online offering to help the royals financially began a few days ago – and after just three donations, it was discontinued until Saturday, The Sun said.
Hanson put in $ 5, while “A Supporter” gave $ 100 and “Anonymous” lent the fund $ 5.
The side read, “I’m Anastasia Hanson, from Ventura, California, and I am raising funds to repay the mortgage on Harry and Meghan’s home in Montecito, California.
“If 2 million supporters would donate only 5 US dollars each, the goal has been achieved and the loan can be repaid. After her interview, I was moved with compassion to help her home pay off. Now that they are financially independent this will help and be a loving gift. “
The site says now, “Campaign not found.”
Harry and Meghan bought her manse with nine bedrooms and 16 bathrooms – called the Chateau of Riven Rock – in August for $ 14.65 million.
The prince allegedly inherited what is now to around $ 13 million from his late mother, Princess Diana.
The couple also has an estimated $ 100 million manufacturing contract with Netflix and are expected to bring in $ 1 million per pop for speeches.
