Well, that’s rather embarrassing!
It looks like “The Interview” with Oprah wasn’t so successful after all.
First, there was the backlash with many critics of Meghan Markel’s claims about her experience as a Royal with many astounded at her astounding level of ignorance of all things Royal while others claiming that she was just lying.
Despite the incredulous claims made by the erstwhile Duke and Duchess of Sussex about the possible shade of their child’s skin before he was born, there were still some fans out there who truly felt that the multi-millionaire Prince and his divorcée-B-list-actress-turned-Princess wife were hard done by.
One of those people was Anastasia Hanson, a 56-year old resident of California, who was so moved by Harry’s whining that his father and Buckingham Palace has cut him off financially that she set up a GoFundMe page to pay off the mortgage on their swanky $14.65 million Montecito mansion that boasts 9 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms, and is a massive 18,000 square feet.
“When they came to the USA, they were without jobs and with limited funds,” said Hanson, who lives about 25 minutes from the princely pair’s palatial estate in swanky Montecito.
“They’ve stated that they’ve had a very rough time, so this fundraiser is a way to give help, compassion, and love by paying their home loan in full.”
Poor Prince Harry! He and his wife must somehow subsist on the £10 million (approx. $13.8 million) left to him by his mother, the $100 million Netflix contract for content production, $1 million per speech, and a podcast deal with Spotify estimated to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $15-$18 million. That doesn’t include Meghan’s income which already put her in the millionaire category before she married Harry.
Hanson’s GoFundMe page to lend a hand to the poor, poor Royals began just a few days ago and was shut down on Saturday after only three donations.
Hanson kicked in $5, while “A Supporter” gave $100 and “Anonymous” bestowed $5 on the fund.
The page had read, “I am Anastasia Hanson of Ventura, California and I am raising funds to pay off the mortgage for the Montecito, California home of Harry and Meghan.
“Were 2 million supporters to donate just $5 each, the Goal is met and the loan can be paid off. After their interview, I was moved with compassion to help get their home paid off. As they are now financially independent, this will help and be a loving gift.”

The link to Hanson’s GoFundMe page now reads “Page Not Found.”
Oh dear! It looks like the 36-year old Harry and 39-year old Meghan are going to have to make it on their own.
But it looks like Meghan has A Plan — she is eyeing the White House. Rumors abound that she is considering running for President in 2024 on the Democratic ticket. That should be interesting. She’s going to have a helluva fight with Vice President Kamala Harris!
Maybe that’s why she’s so desperate for media coverage while complaining about media coverage — she wants to be President.
The odds don’t look so great if a GoFundMe campaign made in support of the Sussexes can’t get more than 3 donations.
In Doug Giles’ latest book, Biblical Badasses: The Women, Giles spotlights ten epic ladies who did awesome things for God with the odds severely stacked against them. These girls weren’t your typical church ladies. They were holy movers and shakers who upset hell with their God-honoring, faith-filled, lives. Giles’ unique take on these terrific women makes the scripture come alive. This book is real, raw, relevant, and irreverent. Giles’ prayer is that after reading, Biblical Badasses: The Women, not only will your noggin be filled with these amazing tales of high and lows from real women who rocked in a hard place, via the power of God, but that you will get off your butt, quit pursuing stupidity, start chasing down your high calling and at the end of your life, you too, like the holy femme fatales featured herein, will have left a massive scar on Satan’s haggard backside.
