With the media frenzy swarming the royal family and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to abdicate and move to North America, it's no surprise that others are getting in on the action. Enter Joe Rogan. The comedian, television host, and fight commentator recently discussed the topic on his show The Joe Rogan Experience and did not hold back any punches when it came to criticizing the couple and royal family as a whole for the dumpster fire that they've created.

'I Don't Know That He's The Sharpest Tool In The Box'

On the recent episode of Rogan's show, he hosted CIA Agent Mike Baker to offer some commentary on his thoughts regarding the royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the 'Megxit' fiasco, as a whole. Immediately, Baker went after Harry's intelligence in an ad hominin attack. "Well, it probably makes sense because you know, I don’t know that he’s the sharpest tool in the box, and he’s probably thinking, ‘I can make a lot more money.’" Baker began. "But they’re not supposed to make any money off of being a member of the royal family."

Baker was then asked about the allowances that each member of the family receives from the Sovereign Grant that is awarded to the royal family, annually. "So they’re given allotments, allowances, living expenses," Baker explained. Rogan then asked if there was a specific amount, to which Baker quoted a vague amount and then threw some shade towards Harry and Meghan for the way in which Queen Elisabeth II found out about their decision. "It’s a significant amount," he said. "They’ve got a house on the grounds of Windsor Castle they could have continued to live in. But here’s my point, they can do whatever the f*ck they want, but it would have been nice if they told their grandmother, so they didn’t have to find out on the news."

Rogan had his own thoughts on the couple, but shifted the criticisms to explaining an easy way for them to bank millions of dollars, much like professional athletes or other celebrities do. "Well listen, they’re already so popular, all they need to do is start endorsing fcking makeup lines and sneakers and watches and sht, and next thing you know, she’s a millionaire," Rogan suggested.

Rogan then started probing for exact figure amounts of how much they make, to which Baker gave some estimates. "Well how much do they make from the royal family? Do you think they hide that sh*t?" Rogan asked. Baker replied with, "I think he got from his mother, as an inheritance he got some $9 million, and she’s probably worth about $6 million alone for her acting career."

After conducting some research on the program, Rogan was finally able to get some hard figures that were available to the public. "The Queen received $58 million free of tax from the Sovereign Grant in the 2016-2017 fiscal year. What kind of goofy sh*t is that? They give them $103 million dollars in the next year to help finance the extensive renovation of Buckingham Palace," he shared with the audience.

Rogan concluded with a hard-hitting perspective stating, "Imagine being a poor person and you find out that the Queen, who literally does nothing, is making $100 million a year." Ouch.
