Robert Watts, compiler of the Sunday Times Rich List, estimates the couple are on course to triple the 355million net worth of the Beckhams.
After probing Harry and Meghans financial background, Mr Watts said: You cant underestimate the international appeal of being a Royal.
And the appeal is even bigger in the US, Canada and the rest of the world.
I think its possible that in ten years time, Prince Harry and Meghan could make it on to the Sunday Times Rich List with 500million and 1billion in the longer term.
Mr Watts said the couples first years post-Megxit would be pivotal for their earnings.
He described the union of a British Prince and Hollywood actress as something special that could open the financial floodgates.
And he insisted they should carefully consider their brand before accepting every opportunity to make money.
All eyes will be on their revised branding approach, which was scuppered last week when the Queen banned them from using royal in their marketing.
