A woman set up a GoFundMe account to pay off Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s $14.6 million estate mortgage and the account allegedly raised a paltry $110 before going belly up and being scrubbed from the Internet.
Anastasia Hanson, 56, who is from California, did an interview with The Sun and stated that she started the fundraising page because she felt sorry for the wealthy royals after finding out that Harry’s father cut him off financially.
“I like to help people and help them in any way I can. That gives me happiness. If you needed a home, I’d do the same for you. It’s a good deed,” she declared.
Originally, people thought the page was a joke. Hanson claims the page was a sincere attempt to help the couple.
“When they came to the USA, they were without jobs and with limited funds,” stated Hanson. She lives approximately 25 minutes from the couple’s estate in 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. I personally relate to mental health, racial equality, diversity, and inclusivity,” Hanson explained.
“They both support these issues as well. Together, they can help bring healing and restoration to the whole world,” she proclaimed.
Harry defended the couple’s slew of profitable media deals since coming to the United States. He told Oprah Winfrey in their recent interview that, “My family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us.”
The GoFundMe page was started just a few days ago but was shuttered by Saturday after receiving only three donations, with $5 of that from Hanson herself. “A Supporter” pitched in $100 and “Anonymous” gave another $5 to the fund.
The plea for funds on the page 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.
When a search for the GoFundMe page is made now, the page states: “Campaign Not Found.”
The royal pair live in a nine-bedroom, 16-bath mansion called the Chateau of Riven Rock which is thought to have tripled in value since it was purchased. They reportedly bought the estate in August for $14.65 million. Harry is said to have inherited approximately $13 million from his late mother, Princess Diana.
The couple has a deal with Netflix that is estimated to be worth $100 million, another deal with Spotify that will be worth in excess of $20 million, and they reportedly rake in about $1 million for each speech they give. Future engagements, speeches, shows, books, etc. will be worth many millions to the young former royals. They also received a protection detail from the Royal Family allegedly worth over $1 million and money from Prince Charles and the Queen to assist them in adapting to public life.
There was no sympathy on Twitter for the former Royal Couple:
I swear if anyone donated to that go fund me, they should be cut off from society! Who the hell donates money to millionaires !??? For the record , im trying to buy a Ferrari if anyone is interested in donating 🤦♂️

LOL. They bought a 14 mil ‘house’…got a 100 mil Netflix deal…inheritance from Princess Diana, already had bank accounts…etc. – and this is who the woman feels sorry for to raise money for? Not homeless people or hungry children, etc, etc? smdh.

There are people who really need money, I won’t pay a penny to gofundme for Harry and Meghan! If I’ve more money than I need, I’ll donate to homeless people and orphan kids! Not to these brats!
