One of the biggest benefits of being a member of the royal family is financial support. The monarchy is bolstered by the British taxpayers, and although there are plenty of official duties that come with being a royal, there's also a fair bit of money in it.

As it turns out, though, Meghan Markle may have found a way to get the best of both worlds. One media exec thinks that Markle could make as much as $100 million this year.

In an interview with "The Morning Toast," branding mogul Simon Huck said his office was flooded with enormous offers for the former "Suits" star.

"Obviously, our agency was flooded with inquiries for Meghan," Huck said, before clarifying that many of the offers were seven-figure deals. The mogul said that if he accepted all of the deals that Huck had received offers for, she'd make $100 million this year alone.

"If she did it all, she would make $100 million," Huck said.

Huck doesn't think she'll go that route, though. "She's not going to do traditional commercials, she's not going to be doing a perfume," he said. "She'll do things with...a Netflix."

Huck explained that Markle can't do standard endorsement deals because they would impact her reputation. Instead, he said, she and Prince Harry are likely to follow in the footsteps of the Obamas.

"She'll follow in that path," Huck said. "She'll do a book deal, she'll do a TV show, she'll produce."

Those comments echo what TMZ founder Harvey Levin told Fox News about the couple in January.

“Make no mistake about it, Harry and Meghan are incredibly marketable," Levin said. "I mean, we talked to Mark Cuban, who knows a thing or two about branding and business and entertainment, and he thinks they're going to be billionaires, and the reason is simple. “They are sought-after people. They are young, beautiful, intelligent, interesting people and Oprah [Winfrey] has already partnered with Harry on a mental health docuseries."

Levin also pointed out that Markle comes from the world of entertainment, and that Harry is already dipping his toes in as well. Between the two of them, they could enter into a number of lucrative deals and partnerships that may also focus on causes that they believe in.

Even without the backing of the royal family, both Harry and Meghan will likely do quite well financially. After all, they're one of the most famous and influential couples on the planet.
