Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s mortgage fundraiser shut after raising just £78
A fundraiser set up to help Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s £11m Californian mortgage has been shut down after raising a meagre £78.64.
Anastasia Hanson, 56, launched the campaign after the Duke of Sussex complained he had been cut off from the Royal Family.
Prince Harry made the claims during Oprah’s bombshell interview with Prince Charles’ son and Meghan Markle.
The soon-to-be dad-of-two said he and Meghan would have been unable to leave the Royal Family if it were not for his mother Princess Diana as the Firm cut him off financially in early 2020.
Meghan and Harry were able to escape however, as Diana left the Duke a sizeable inheritance should he ever need it.
Ms Hanson felt as though the couple’s plight spoke to her and said she identified with the "issues" the couple represent.
Despite Harry and Meghan raking in millions with lucrative deals from Netflix and Spotify, Ms Hanson decided to launch a campaign to help pay off their home in Montecito, California.
She told The Sun the pair came to the USA "without jobs and limited funds" and added that they've had a "very rough time."

To help, Ms Hanson said her fundraiser was aimed at paying of the couple's home, and is a way to "give help, compassion, and love."
She added: "I personally relate to mental health, racial equality, diversity, and inclusivity.
"They both support these issues as well. Together, they can help bring healing and restoration to the whole world."

Despite Ms Hanson's good intentions, her fundraiser, titled Harry and Meghan $5 Donation to Buy Home (£3.61), was shut down.
According to The Sun the page was removed after receiving just under £80 in donations.
Her GoFundMe had stated that she wanted two million of Harry and Meg’s fans to donate just $5 each in order to reach her ambitious goal.
She also repeatedly reiterated that it was a "legitimate" fundraiser and not a scam.
