How Much Is the British Royal Family Worth? Here’s an Updated Breakdown of Every Member
There is no denying the fact that the members of the British royal family have extraordinary lives. Even those who are not considered “working royals” — such as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have things that are pretty lavish, such as expensive designer clothes as well as spectacular homes.
Basically, the descendants of Queen Elizabeth have lives that the rest of us can only dream of. They have traveled the world in private jets, they have access to the most coveted jewelry in the entire world, and it is safe to say that they don’t really worry about money all that much.
What many people may not think about is the net worth of the royals or even the source of their income. It is pretty surprising to hear about where all the money comes from, and how much each person has in their bank account.
So, how much, actually, is the British royal family worth? Here is an updated breakdown of every member.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry
Let’s start with the future king and queen consort. They live in an amazing royal residence and there is seemingly nothing that they don’t have.
As for Prince William, Business Insider reports that he has a net worth of about $40 million dollars. While he certainly isn’t the richest royal, that’s not exactly chump change, either. So, where did the Duke of Cambridge get all the cash? Well, a huge portion of it came from his late mother, Princess Diana – the late princess received $22.5 million from Prince Charles as part of her divorce settlement — and he also earns annual dividends of about $450,000.
As for Kate, Yahoo! Finance reports that she was wealthy even before she became a royal, and these days, boasts a net worth of about $10 million dollars, most of which comes from her lucrative family business.
It turns out that Prince Harry is sitting on a nice pile of cash himself. Like Prince William, he received about $14 million from Princess Diana and has a total net worth of around $40 million.
The net worth of Prince Charles
Prince Charles is next in line for the British throne and hasn’t exactly had an ordinary life. He has spent his life living in sprawling palaces and other royal residences and there is no doubt that he has a massive net worth.
According to Marie Claire, the future king is worth a whopping $400 million making him one of the richest family members. Where did it all come from? The majority is from the Duchy of Cornwall, a portfolio of land and real estate that holds over $1 billion dollars.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is reportedly worth around $5 million.

The queen also owns Balmoral Castle ($140 million) in Aberdeenshire, Scotland and Sandringham House ($65 million) in Norfolk, England.
