The British royal family has power, prestige, and tons and tons of money. Contrary to popular belief, the Royals aren’t fully funded by taxpayers. They’re independently wealthy with inheritances, crown estates, and allowances. Alone, the crown jewels have an estimated worth between £3 and £5 billion ($4 – $6.6 billion). Their combined wealth is thought to be around $88 billion.
So, how much are the British family members actually worth? Spoiler: even the poorest royals are still wealthier than most of us could ever imagine.
Prince William ($40 Million)
Prince William is second in line to the throne and as a result, has a pretty big net worth. Both he and his brother Prince Harry collected a huge chunk of their worth through an inheritance they received on their 30th birthdays. It included £13m in trust and estate from their mother Princess Diana, who tragically passed away in a car accident years before.
William also pulled in $450,000 per year in investment profits by the time he was 21 and receives an allowance from his father that’s rumored to be around $4.6 million. Though Prince William was a helicopter pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance, he donates his $62,000 salary to charity. Who needs it when you’re that rich? His wealth is only expected to increase once his father takes the throne.
