The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are reportedly very conscious of their alleged dwindling finances amid their lavish lifestyle.

According to a royal expert, although Harry and Meghan have enough money to sustain their lifestyle "for now," the duchess' brand launch suggests they know that their "money is disappearing fast."

Meghan recently made notable appearances alongside Harry, dazzling in designer ensembles. She wore an expensive Carolina Herrera cape at an art event and an Oscar de la Renta dress during a children's hospital visit.

Meghan Markle Will Not Be Joining Prince Harry For Visit To 'Sick' King Charles

During a chat with The Mirror, royal expert and author Tom Quinn claimed that launching Meghan's lifestyle brand, American Orchard Riviera, is a sign that the royal couple knows how quickly their finances are depleting.

Quinn said, "Harry and Megan certainly have enough money for now to carry on with their Royal lifestyle in America, but the launch of the new brand suggests that they are aware that the money is disappearing fast."

The expert further alleged that Meghan is determined to live by the standards set by her "mega-rich" Montecito neighbors and that being unable to do this scares the couple.

"They live among mega-rich celebrities in Montecito, and Meghan is determined to live as they live," Quinn alleged. "The idea they might have to make choices about what they can and cannot afford fills the couple with horror. This is why whatever happens to Kate and King Charles, the new brand will not be neglected."

He noted that Meghan will be more subdued about how she promotes her lifestyle brand due to Kate Middleton and King Charles' health challenges, but that she will not neglect it no matter what.

"Meghan will be trying to find a way to continue with her new brand, but in a less full-on manner than she might've attempted had Kate not announced her illness – we will see less of Harry too as the brand launches because he is a reminder that all is not well in the couple's relationship with Kate and King Charles at such a difficult time," the royal expert concluded.

Unfortunately, during her visit to the children's hospital, Meghan encountered a minor wardrobe mishap: her dress ripped with a hole on the left side of her waist.

According to the Daily Express, the wardrobe malfunction caught the attention of royal fans, with one observer commenting: "I am not a fan of M's behavior, but I think it is more a zipper problem than a hole. Maybe she did not notice it was not zipped all the way up, or it rolled down because it was too tight."

Another added: "Nooooo, did she not check it before she put it on? A quick stitch would [have] fixed that." A third person said, "Seriously?! Wow, embarrassing."

However, rather than dwelling on the mishap, one admirer praised her choice of attire, commenting: "I like that she's bringing the long flowing skirts back just in time for summer. I have a skirt or something like that."
