Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are allegedly preparing a prenuptial agreement among themselves.

According to a report in Yahoo Lifestyle, the royal is very serious about his future with Meghan Markle and is in the process of drafting a prenup, after already setting the wedding date to September 22 this year.

That prenuptial agreement reportedly costs a staggering $59 million, and both parties and their respective lawyers are said to be finalizing the document within the next few weeks. Out of the $59 million, the majority fortune belongs to Prince Harry. Harry has $52 million worth of fortune, while Meghan Markle's is $7 million.

As per the Yahoo report, Harry was left $19 million inheritance by his mother, the late princess Diana who was killed in a car crash that occurred in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris, on August 31, 1997. Mohammed Al Fayed, the father of Dodi Fayed had said back then that it was a conspiracy, and Dodi Fayed was engaged to marry Diana, following her divorce from Prince Charles. The paparazzi are also thought to have caused the crash, which resulted in the death of not just Diana, but her partner Dodi and their driver Henri Paul, the then acting security manager of the Hotel Ritz Paris.

Anyway, both her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry grew up to be fine men in general. Prince William married a commoner rather than a royal and Harry is also following in the footsteps of his elder brother. However, unlike the Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan Markle is a celebrity, known for playing the role of Rachel Zane in the legal drama, Suits. She reportedly met Prince Harry on May 2016, when they were both attending the Invictus Games in Orlando.

Harry has also been left a smaller, undisclosed sum of money by his great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, when she passed away in 2002 at 101 years of age.

Interestingly, Harry's wanting to take charge of his relationship is being questioned by his father and his brother, as per the report. Both Prince Charles and Prince Williams didn't sign a prenuptial agreement when they wed Camilla and Kate respectively. It has been heard that Meghan Markle is the one who wants a prenuptial agreement signed, to maintain ownership of her assets in case their marriage does not work out. "She thinks it's very important they retain financial independence," the source said, as quoted by Yahoo.
