Prince Harry and Meghan Markle created a GoFundMe to pay off their mortgage.

This week's trend is a GoFundMe page created to cover Meghan Markle’s and Prince Harry’s mansion reportedly worth $14.65 million, only raised around $110.
Some users claimed that the couple created the campaign.
Misbar's investigation found the claim misleading.
Anastasia Hanson created the campaign, 56, of California, told Britain’s The Sun that she started the fundraising effort because she seriously felt sorry for the multimillionaire royal couple.
Hanson insisted her online crowdfunding campaign, titled ‘Harry and Meghan $5 Donation to Buy Home (£3.61)’, was not a joke, claiming she wanted to help the Sussexes, who are worth millions, through a "very rough time."
The GoFundMe campaign started two days after the interview before being shut down on Saturday after three donations. Hanson herself started the bid with $5, followed by 'a supporter' who donated $100, and an 'anonymous' person who donated $5.
The couple did not collect money from the public to pay their mortgage; a fan did.
