‘The mystery billionaire who let Harry and Meghan stay in his $14million mansion in Canada is reportedly Frank Giustra, a businessman whose close ties to the Clintons have caused controversy in the past.
Canadian mining magnate Giustra, 62, is said to have loaned the couple the home where they finalized their plan to scale back their royal duties over the New Year, according to The New York Post.
The couple have so far refused to refused to name the secretive multi-millionaire who loaned them the Canadian mansion.
But Page Six reports Giustra is the owner of Mille Fleurs, the seafront home close to Victoria, British Columbia. He is understood to have loaned the home for free.
Giustra is close friends with David Foster, who arranged for the Duke and Duchess to stay at the imposing home. Music producer Foster is the husband of Broadway star Katharine McPhee, a friend of Meghan’s since their school days.
Ownership by Giustra would be at odds with what DailyMail.com was told by a realtor involved in the 2014 sale of the home. That person, who had to sign a non disclosure agreement, said it was bought by a billionaire who is neither Canadian nor or American for $18 million CAD – $14 million.’
