But the comical crusade has now been removed after receiving just under £80 in donations.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, complained he had to dip into late mum Princess Diana’s huge inheritance during the first quarter of 2020, as he was shunned following Megxit.

Hanson said she wanted to help the Duke and Duchess of Sussex get through a "very rough time" with her philanthropic efforts, emphasising it was not a joke.

She intended to raise the staggering amount of cash to cover the cost of the couple's mortgage on their megabucks mansion in Montecito.

But despite Harry and wife Meghan’s subsequent mega-deals with Netflix and Spotify – worth more than £100million – his whining to the chat show queen has moved one woman to act.

Hanson set up the GoFundMe two days after the Sussex’s sit-down with Oprah.

The page is now inactive and produces an error message saying, "Campaign Not Found".

She wanted to raise the giant figure of £7.1million to pay off Harry’s mortgage on his £11million, nine-bedroom home in California – but has collected just £78.64 so far.

Insisting her fundraise-heir is no joke, Anastasia, from Ventura – just a 25-minute drive from the prince - told The Sun: “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.”

Asked about Harry’s big-money deals, Anastasia confirmed: “I am aware of them.”

Her GoFundMe stated that she wants two million of Harry and Meg’s fans to donate just $5 each in order to reach her ambitious goal.

She repeatedly reiterated that it was a “legitimate” fundraiser.

On the GoFundMe site, the campaign's description read: “I am raising funds to pay off the mortgage for the Montecito, California home of Harry and Meghan.

“When they came to the USA they were without jobs and with limited funds.

“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.

“They both support these issues as well. Together, they can help bring healing and restoration to the whole world.”

Harry, who quit as a frontline royal a year ago and moved to California, told Oprah that his family had cut him off financially.

He said he had to pay for security for him, Meghan and son Archie, adding: “But I've got what my mum left me, and, without that, we would not have been able to do this.”

Diana’s inheritance to him is estimated at £10million.

He and Meghan, 39, then inked big money deals with Netflix and Spotify last year, as well as signing up for lucrative speaking agency Harry Walker.
