Since the dawn of time, the royal family has garnered public interest as they lead a life that seems so far removed from that of a ‘normal’ person.
But with what appears to be such grandeur and extravagance, just how rich are the royals?
That’s what Forbes felt the family are all worth.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – 86 million euros
Since retiring as senior royals, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been financially independent from the Crown.
It has been reported that Harry used the money he inherited from his mother Diana to move to California, America.
The couple have plans that will increase his current net worth as well, with deals with Spotify worth almost € 13 million and a five-year deal with Netflix worth € 86 million.
Kate Middleton – 6 to 8.6 million euros
The Middleton family has an estimated collective value of 43 million euros. Most of that wealth comes from an online party supplies business called Party Pieces.
Prince Charles also covers official staff and Kate’s wardrobe expenses, and some of her travel expenses are often covered by the countries she visits.
This means that Kate can keep most of her own money in her bank account.
Prince William – € 34 million
Second in line to the throne, Prince William receives an annual income from the Duchy of Cornwall to cover private expenses.
Like Harry, Prince William received 8 million euros from his mother’s estate, and he also received an annual salary when he was a helicopter pilot in the Royal Air Force.
Prince Charles – € 344 million
Next in line to the throne, Prince Charles has the highest net worth, just behind Queen Elizabeth.
Prince Charles’ potential wealth, according to Forbes, is between $ 86 million and $ 344 million.
A significant amount of Prince Charles’ wealth comes from the Duchy of Cornwall, a private estate which owns and operates land in rural and urban areas, as well as various islands and cottages in Wales and Cornwall.
Queen Elizabeth – € 517 million
Much of the Queen’s fortune comes from property she owns, such as Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Sandringham House and various other properties located across the UK.
The Queen’s net worth does not include that of the Buckingham Palace estate, which is estimated to be worth over € 8 billion.
