What is Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's net worth and how do they earn money?

  What is Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's net worth and how do they earn money? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah earlier this year made one thing extremely clear — upon resigning as senior royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had to transition to financial independence. "My family literally cut me off financially," the Duke told Oprah in March this year, however, a senior Clarence House spokesperson clarified that Prince Charles continued to cover the Sussexes' expenses for months after January 2020, which was when the Sussexes initially claimed they were "cut off."With their independent finances, the couple bought a US$14.65 million mansion in August last year.

Belenenses had just nine players available for their Primeira Liga clash with Benfica on Saturday night due to a Covid outbreak at the club.

The Portuguese side - who were reluctant to cancel the fixture in case they received a penalty from the league - persevered without full strength squad.

Belenenses named two goalkeepers in their starting XI and went without substitutions in order to meet the stated requirements for an official match.

It is believed 17 players and staff tested positive for Covid at the Portuguese club ahead of the game.

Now Palaszczuk won't let Queenslanders go to SYDNEY

  Now Palaszczuk won't let Queenslanders go to SYDNEY Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said going to Sydney for a day or two would be 'out of the question' until the state reached 90 per cent of its population fully vaccinated against Covid-19. The claim was in response to a question about whether people who travel from Queensland to Sydney for a day or two 'for work' will still require a PCR test in order to return home.'We're looking at that, you do need to have a PCR test,' she responded. 'At the moment, going to Sydney for a day or two would be out of the question until we get to that 90 per cent double dose.

As a result, both goalkeepers Joao Monteiro and Alvaro Ramalho were named in Belenenses' starting XI. However, it was only Ramalho who stood between the sticks.

Monteiro was forced to adopt the role of a right-back for the Primeira Liga clash at the Estadio do Restelo.

Benfica went into the table in third position and had hoped to close the gap between themselves the league leaders Porto.

You can now get COVID-19 travel insurance. Here's what it does and doesn't cover

  You can now get COVID-19 travel insurance. Here's what it does and doesn't cover Australians travelling overseas for the first time since international borders reopened are paying hundreds of dollars for travel insurance — but the fine print reveals some very big COVID-related exclusions. Sydney couple Beth and Larry Lee are about to fly to the United States to meet a grandchild they've never seen in person."I'm the kind of person [who] watches people at airports and cries when the people they know come in," Ms Lee says."So, I'm really excited, but also a little nervous."The Lees' nerves about their trip to the United States comes down to the unpredictability of post-COVID travel.

Things then went from bad to worse for Belenenses - who finished the first half of the game 7-0 down to the visitors.

Fans and fellow footballers took to social media to question the logic behind the fixture going ahead.

Bernardo Silva took to Twitter to say: 'What is this? Am I the only one who doesn't understand why the game hasn't been postponed?'.

Ruben Neves responded to Silva saying: 'Exactly friend. It's not really understandable, or else we're not thinking well'.

However, speaking ahead of the game, Belenenses president Rui Pedro Soares said that his team had not requested a suspension and were able to play.

He said: 'We have 38 players registered and we trust them all. Therefore the decision is up to health authorities.

'We will wait and we are going to respect their decision.'
