Prince Harry has revealed that he was financially able to step back from the Royal family because his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales left him an inheritance, telling Oprah Winfrey: "I think she saw it coming". The Duke of Sussex told the interviewer Oprah Winfrey that he was now living off money left to him by his late mother after he was “cut off financially” early last year when he and the Duchess moved to the US. “I have what my mum left me and without that we wouldn’t have been able to do this,” he said of his new life in Los Angeles. “It’s like she saw it coming and she’s been with us through this whole process.” The princes were left about £6.5 million each when their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, died 23 years ago. The sum was invested and gathered substantial interest, so Prince Harry inherited around £10 million on his 30th birthday. Diana's sons were also left her wedding dress, designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel and made of thousands of pearls, silk layers and a 25ft-train. In 2013, Earl Spencer, Diana's brother, said that other items would also be handed over to William and Harry, in accordance with their mother's will. Other items handed down include: 28 other dresses, designer suits and evening gowns that belonged to Diana, two diamond tiaras, the original text of the Earl Spencer’s tribute to his sister at the funeral in Westminister Abbey and the score and lyrics of the Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin's version of Candle in the Wind, played by Sir Elton at Diana's funeral.

Letters: Harry and Meghan’s sour grapes do a public injustice to dutiful members of the Royal family
SIR – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex chose to lead a “private” life and should do so without inflicting their sour grapes upon us. It isn’t fair, either, on the members of the Royal family who carry out their duties with such unstinting devotion. Niki Talbot Saint-Jean-du-Gard, Gard, France SIR – The Sussexes, on their departure from the Royal family, said that part of their focus would be on helping others. I fail to see how this interview with Oprah Winfrey is helping anyone else. All it will do is upset the Queen and irritate the British public, who had welcomed the Duchess in the beginning. Hannah Hunt Wendover, Buckinghamshire SIR – Revelations reveal; accusations accuse – a very important distinction. Christopher Timbrell Kington Langley, Wiltshire SIR – One sad repercussion from the Oprah Winfrey interview is the long-term effect on the Sussexes’ children. Meghan came from a broken family, but in attacking Harry’s family she has prevented Archie and his sibling having the affinity that Harry had with his cousins and wider family. Harry describes his father and brother as “trapped”. He seems to be confusing this with them carrying out the duties that are expected of them. It was clear from seeing the wider Royal family at the Commonwealth Day programme that they take on those duties cheerfully and responsibly – something that the Sussex children, thanks to their parents, will never have the opportunity of experiencing. Barry Gibbs Wimborne, Dorset SIR – She’s an actress, darling! Jane Campbell Lenzie, East Dunbartonshire SIR – Poor little me! Sheena Lane Aston-on-Trent, Derbyshire
