Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been accused of wanting to see 'the money rolling in' without doing much in return, by a royal biographer.
Angela Levin points to the couple only so far delivering a single podcast – which she branded 'boring' – as part of their multi-million pound Spotify deal.
The author of 'Harry: Conversations with the Prince' made the allegation on TalkRadio on Thursday after it emerged Prince Charles had been funding his son for longer than the young royal had claimed.
Royal accounts suggest the couple were supported by Charles until summer 2020, which contradicts Harry's claims he had stopped receiving financial support from his family in the "first quarter" of last year, the Daily Star reports.
Ms Levin said: "They [Meghan and Harry] don't want to pay anything, they want to get the money rolling in with very little in return and that's been shown with Spotify.

"They were offered an $18 million contract and they've done one extremely boring podcast of half an hour where people like Elton John were complaining they couldn't take their private planes out of the country."
The specifics of the Spotify deal have not been made public so it is not known how much content the couple are expected to produce for the streaming service, or over what period.
There's no suggestion that the pair are in breach of their contractual arrangement, and the comments come as Meghan and Harry have their hands full following the birth of their second child Lily earlier this month.
At the time the Spotify deal was announced last December, the company said the couple "will host and produce podcasts that build community through shared experience, narratives, and values."

Last week it was reported that to date that so far amounted to around 35 minutes of released material.
The Duke and Duchess said in a statement last year: "What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction.
"With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other, and hear each other's stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are."
Harry has since appeared on a different podcast, with Hollywood actor Dax Shepard, in which he repeated criticisms of his family and shared details about his mental health struggles.
