The British royal family has accumulated unimaginable wealth over the years, after countless generations of rule. Here's a closer look at some of the biggest bank accounts throughout Buckingham Palace.
27. Lady Amelia Windsor – $1 Million
She may only be 43rd in line to the throne (as of the publication of our writing), but William and Harry’s cousin is doing just fine. She’s still in her 20’s, but she’s already managed to amass a net worth of $1 million!
Over the last few years, Amelia has successfully launched a career as a fashion model, working with world-class brands like Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. She also frequently supports different charities, which she promotes on Instagram to her 96,000+ followers.
26. Sarah Ferguson – $1 Million
Back in the 1980s and 90s, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York was a very high profile royal, in part due to her marriage to Prince Andrew. Though the stately couple divorced in 1996, she has gone on to be a notable public figure, TV personality, and writer. She even had a cameo on an episode of Friends!
According to Celebrity Net Worth, today, the Duchess of York has an estimated net worth of $1 million. Although she has a somewhat smaller net worth than her fellow royals, she donates much of it to charity organizations like the American Cancer Society and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
25. Princess Eugenie – $1 Million
Unlike many of her ilk, Princess Eugenie actually works a fairly normal civilian job. These days she holds the position of Associate Director for Hauser and Wirth, a British art gallery. A comfortable job paired with a very generous trust has left her with a net worth of $1 million - as Celebrity Net Worth estimates.
We’re sure Eugenie is happy - not just because of her earnings. In 2018, she married Jack Brooksbank and gave birth to their son August, in 2021! Pair her happy little family with her healthy bank account, and things are certainly looking rosy for Eugenie.
24. Princess Beatrice – $1 Million
Speaking of Eugenie, her sister Beatrice is also a beneficiary of the trust developed by their great-grandmother. And like her sister, she works a normal job! Beatrice currently sits as Vice President of Afiniti, an American software company. These two things have launched her into a successful adult life.
And that's not all - it's been said that Beatrice also receives financial support from her father. Today, Princess Bea has an estimated net worth of $1 million, as reported by Celebrity Net Worth. Like Eugenie, she has also found marital bliss in the arms of property developed Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, whom she married in 2020.
23. Princess Michael of Kent – $4 Million
Few royals have had such extensive independent careers as Princess Michael of Kent, who started off as an interior designer before she jumped into a career as a novelist. Her various works of fiction and non-fiction were actually based on the history of European Royalty - her own family’s history!
Today, Princess Michael of Kent has an estimated net worth of $4 million, according to Networth Post. She and her husband live on a lavish estate, where they have allegedly been paying rent on the property since 2010. Either way, we’re sure she’s comfortable!
22. Prince Andrew – $5 Million
Despite his highly publicized marriage to Sarah Ferguson in the 80s and 90s, Prince Andrew himself has largely stayed out of the limelight compared to his royal siblings. And though he lives an apparently more lowkey life, he has managed to maintain a long track record in business.
So much so, that in recent months he has been reported to be worth $5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. But that number was actually once much higher. It has since dropped drastically due to recent legal entanglements the Prince has been caught up in.
21. Camilla Parker Bowles – $5 Million
Since her controversial marriage to the Prince of Wales, Camilla Parker Bowles has managed to establish herself as a fixture of the royal family. And she has done so with an estimated net worth of $5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Like the Duchess of York, she frequently donates to different charities.
Her favorites are organizations like the Arthritis Research UK Organization and Trinity Hospice. The Duchess of Cornwall generated much of her wealth via multiple real estate properties, as well as a generous stipend from the Duchy of Cornwall estate.
20. Kate Middleton – $10 Million
Like her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton didn’t need to rely on her husband Prince William when they got married. Before she entered the Windsor family, the British beauty actually boasted a significant inheritance from her very own family, the wealthy Middletons.
The Middleton family business has been very successful, accumulating over $50 million - according to Celebrity Net Worth! And as a result of her inheritance, her prominent role as a public figure, and her stipend from the Duchy of Cornwall - among other royal payments - Kate has secured $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
19. Prince Edward – $10 Million
Prince Edward has also had his fair share of success and royal responsibilities. The Earl of Wessex is the youngest child of Prince Philip, and he was actually the royal chosen to take on the title of Duke of Edinburgh, his father’s title, back in 2017.
Of course, this meant stepping up in a major way - but many were confident in Prince Edward's abilities. And it wasn’t all for nothing: He also began receiving the Sovereign Grant from the royal bank account, bringing his personal fortune to $10 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
18. Zara Tindall – $20 Million
After spending years as a child learning to ride horses, Zara Tindall was well-equipped to start her professional career as an equestrian. The daughter of Princess Anne and granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, she has paired her royal title with an esteemed career and a mind for business.
She collaborated with Musto Outdoor Clothing, combining her love of horses with her penchant for fashion by starting her own equestrian clothing line! With a side hustle running a jewelry business as well, it’s no surprise Tindall has a fortune of $20 million, as reported by Celebrity Net Worth.
17. Prince Richard – $25 Million
He’s called himself “the poorest” of all the royal relatives, but we have to disagree! Prince Richard, otherwise known as the Duke of Gloucester, is a first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and has his own impressive fortune - though he publicly disagrees. It helps that he chose to work as an architect for many years.
And by all means, he was a successful one! Over the years, Richard has won various awards and titles, including President of the Society of Architect Artists. Not to mention he also has his own large estate and several enormously expensive family heirlooms. Several sources place his net worth at about $25 million.
16. Prince Philip – $30 Million
As many of us will know, Prince Philip sadly passed away in 2021. For 70+ years, he stood by the side of Queen Elizabeth II as her faithful husband. But upon his passing, it became clear that he had left a significant fortune behind - approximately $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
This was in large part due to the money he earned via his royal title, along with an annual income of half a million dollars. Although, it must be said that a few years prior to his passing, he reportedly left his title and annual payments to Prince Edward, his youngest son.
15. Princess Anne – $30 Million
It can’t be easy being the only daughter to the Queen of England, but Princess Anne certainly did a great job of it. Over the decades, she has earned a reputation of being one of the hardest-working royals of her generation, as well as donating to more than 300 different charities in her time.
In her spare time, particularly as a young woman, Anne was known for her love of horses and equestrians. This led to her being the first royal in history to compete in the Olympics, and she passed her love of the sport on to her daughter, Zara. Today Anne has an estimated net worth of $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
14. Prince William – $30 Million
Some may be surprised to see the future heir to the throne at this spot on our list, but Prince William is well taken care of. Not only has he received various inheritances from his mother and great-grandmother, but he also gets funding from multiple different sources.
Most notably, his father, Prince Charles, and the Duchy of Cornwall, which reportedly nets him “Roughly $26.4 million a year!” He must have a lot of extra expenses now that he has a wife and two children. Luckily, according to Celebrity Net Worth, he has a current net worth of around $30 million.
13. Princess Diana – $31.5 Million
The People’s Princess may not be with us today, but her presence certainly is. And what’s more, her finances lived on long after her. When she passed away in 1997, Forbes reported her net worth to be around $31.5 million. Of course, that money was split between her two young sons.
Prince William and Harry inherited more than just the content of her bank account - they were also given various items from her renowned jewelry collection. Other items from her collections were also given to different members of the family as small mementos to remember her by.
12. Prince Michael of Kent – $40 Million
Prince Michael of Kent’s place in the British royal family has changed over the years. At one point, he was 7th in line for the throne, due to being Queen Elizabeth’s first cousin and the grandson of King George V. However these days he now sits at #52, now that new generations of Windsor’s have been welcomed into the world.
That doesn't seem to bother Prince Michael, who went on to have a successful career in business. According to the HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO's website, he's worked in "Property, education, technology, medical, and aviation industries." Today, he has an estimated net worth of $40 million, according to several reports.
11. Sophie Helen – $45 Million
For most, the Countess of Wessex is probably not the first face that comes to mind when we think of the royal family. Be that as it may, Sophie Helen has undoubtedly played an important part in royal affairs. She is said to be the Queen’s closest confidante and plays a major hand in organizing her public appearances.
Not only does she hold an important place in the Queen’s entourage, but she also regularly donates to over 70 charity organizations. Helen is a royal colonel and colonel in chief to various corps groups. Today, several outlets place her with a net worth of $45 million, despite regularly sharing her wealth.
10. Meghan Markle – $60 Million
She entered her marriage with a net worth of $5 million due to her acting career. But these days, Meghan Markle’s wealth sits closer to a whopping $60 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth! Though we should point out, that’s the combined earnings of both her and Prince Harry.
It's particularly impressive considering that she and Harry no longer receive money from the Royal fund, now that they have officially retired their royal duties. Since then, they've secured a 2020 "mega-deal" with Netflix, including a plan to launch a "scripted content, documentaries, and children's programming" company.
9. Prince Harry – $60 Million
Back in the early days of Harry’s career as a royal adult and a member of the Air Force, he had a reported annual salary of $53,000. But combined with his inheritance from Princess Diana and later payments from the Duchy of Cornwall, he was able to make a considerable living.
And after giving up his royal duties, he has managed to accumulate even more wealth through the “mega-deal” he and Meghan Markle have signed with the streaming service Netflix. According to Celebrity Net Worth, he and his wife share an estimated net worth of $60 million.
8. Prince Louis – $65 Million
Prince Louis may still be a toddler, but that doesn’t mean he can’t bring in the big bucks! That’s right, little Louis is worth a whopping $65 million, according to several reports! But how is this possible? Well, as it turns out, royal babies are worth their weight in gold… literally.
Throughout royal history, new babies in the family have led to significant boosts in the British economy. The entire country has benefited from his birth, and that benefit paired with his inheritance comes to a significant fortune. Just wait and see how much his siblings and cousins are worth...
7. Archie Harrison – $65-$90 Million
He’s not just the apple of Harry and Meghan’s eyes, but all of Britain's! Just like his cousin before him, little Archie Harrison has also brought a significant amount of fortune for the British economy. He was even generating big dollars before he was born!
As a result of related memorabilia and souvenir sales worldwide, conservative estimates have placed young Archie’s net worth at anywhere between $65-90 million! We aren’t sure of the exact number yet, but we know that baby Archie has a bright (and lucrative) future ahead of him.
6. Lady Kitty Spencer – $100 Million
Ok, let us explain. It’s true that Lady Kitty Spencer isn’t royalty in the truest sense of the word. While she’s not part of the Windsor lineage, she is connected by marriage - her aunt was none other than the “people’s princess,” Diana Spencer, making her a first cousin to both William and Harry.
So while she isn’t making any money from the official royal bag, she’s got more than enough set-aside. After years of working as a world-class model and spokesperson for BVLGARI, she and her husband have a combined net worth of $100 million - as several sources reported. That’s more than both of her princely cousins!
5. Prince Charles – $100 Million
One of the most recognizable members of the royal family and next in line to the throne, Prince Charles is the eldest of Queen Elizabeth II’s children. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he also has one of the most impressive net worths in the entire royal family.
This is in large part due to the money dolled out to him via the Duchy of Cornwall, which is a fund that most royal family members can draw from. Today, Harry and William’s dad has a jaw-dropping net worth of $100 million, as Celebrity Net Worth estimates. He also allegedly holds $1.3 billion in assets.
4. Charles Spencer – $149-$154 Million
Similar to his daughter, Lady Kitty, Charles Spencer isn’t technically a member of the royal family - only through the marriage of his sister. But just like his daughter, he’s no worse off for it! The 9th Earl of Spencer has generated plenty of wealth through his own exploits as an NBC News correspondent and reporter.
Of course, we can’t deny that a hefty percentage of his wealth comes from his late mother’s inheritance. But there’s no denying that Diana’s little brother has done well for himself. Today he has a net worth estimated to be between $149 and $154 million, according to several outlets.
3. Queen Elizabeth II – $600 Million
Who would’ve thought that the royal monarch and British matriarch would come in anything other than 1st place? Not us, that’s for sure. But although Queen Elizabeth II is not the richest royal on our list, she’s still worth more than half a billion dollars.
How? Her wealth includes the worth of her estates like Balmoral Castle ($140 million) and Sandringham House ($65 million), as well as 15-25% of profits generated from Buckingham Palace. All up, the Queen has an estimated net worth of around $600 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
2. Prince George – $3.6-$5 Billion
The countdown is almost done, and most people won’t believe who reached the top of the list as one of the youngest members of the House of Windsor - and one of the richest! According to several outlets, Prince George has a mind-blowing net worth of $3.6-5 billion.
It makes sense that the future heir to the throne has pumped so much money into the country’s economy in his short life, and we’re sure that number will only grow as he gets older. Now that we know how valuable royal babies can be for their family and country, let’s move on to the royal with the highest net worth of all…
1. Princess Charlotte – $4.6 Billion
That’s right, George’s little sister Charlotte has snagged the top spot on our list of the wealthiest royals! According to Brand Finance, William and Kate’s eldest daughter has an eye-watering net worth of close to $5 billion. But how has she made so much compared to her brothers and cousins?
Well, the clothing that she chooses to wear can often set up a brand or clothing label for life! She once famously wore a yellow sweater that instantly became a best seller for little girls across Great Britain! In fact, she’s generated so much wealth at the age of six that the phenomenon has been called “The Charlotte Effect.”
