We know that British royalty are millionaires. Parties, palaces, dates, all this makes them not only personalities, but real celebrities. Make no mistake, behind every diamond tiara, every pearl necklace, there is a fortune of billions.
Living the life of luxury in the UK’s most luxurious property, traveling the world and making many elegant public appearances at events for the charities they advocate, it is no wonder that their finances are vetted from time to time.
These are the three richest members of the royal family.
First of all, Your Royal Highness
At the height of her 96 years, Queen Elizabeth II had an estimated fortune of $600 million in the bank. According to the BBC, Queen Elizabeth raised $105 million from British taxpayers through the Sovereign Grant between 2021-2022, the equivalent of $1.50 per person.
Second, the future king of the United Kingdom
When Queen Elizabeth II is no longer queen, Prince Charles is the one who should ascend to the throne. His net worth is currently estimated to be around $100 million.
Prince Charles receives annual income from the Sovereign Grant, but most of his money comes from the Duchy of Cornwall, an inherited portfolio of about 54,000 hectares of land across the UK used for agriculture, residential housing and commercial property, which is estimated to be worth more than $1 billion.
Third, Harry and Meghan Markle stunned
If you think that William and Kate Middleton will take third place in the ranking of the richest members of the royal family, then you are mistaken. This post belongs only to Harry and Meghan Markle.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, in addition to the fortune inherited from Princess Diana, Harry and Meghan have signed production deals worth up to $120 million with huge platforms like Netflix, Spotify and Apple Plus, with rumors of a Netflix reality show in the works plans.
In addition to all of their entertainment co-ops, the couple own at least 11 companies together, according to The Independent, from Peca Publishing to the Beverly Hills-based Archewell Foundation. All of this contributes to his impressive net worth.
And let’s not forget to consider Markle’s acting career, which includes “Suits” and “Horrible Bosses.” Harper’s Bazaar reports that it has earned about $2.2 million from “Suits” alone.
