What is the Spencer Family Net Worth?

Who is the Spencer family?

Before she was a member of the royal family, Princess Diana was Lady Diana Spencer — the daughter of the 8th Earl Spencer, John Spencer. The Spencer family dates back to the 15th century and consists of many prominent members, including the Princess of Wales, as well as knights, earls, barons, and even Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

With a close connection to royalty — and some royal ancestors — Princess Diana was not as “common” as the royal family made her seem. Sure, she wasn’t a princess before marrying Prince Charles, but she did hold a royal title (Lady Diana Spencer) and came from a family of great wealth and status. Speaking of which, the Spencer family net worth is quite impressive.

Aside from aristocratic titles, one of the closest similarities between the Spencer family and the royal family is their bank accounts. Much like the Queen of England, Prince Charles, and other members of the royal family, Princess Diana’s relatives are worth millions. Here’s a closer look at the Spencer family net worth.

Kitty Spencer

Net worth: $100 million

According to reports, Princess Diana’s niece, Kitty Spencer is allegedly worth $100 million. Charles Spencer’s eldest daughter comes from an impressive financial background. However, her modeling career has made her wealthy by her own right.

Unlike the royals, the Spencer family tends to stay out of the limelight. On top of that, they do a much better job of keeping their finances hush-hush. But while the net worth of some of the Spencer family’s most prominent members is unknown, the 9th Earl Spencer, Charles Spencer’s (Kitty Spencer’s father and Princess Diana’s brother) net worth is estimated at around $154 million.

Net worth: $26.5 million

At the time of her death, Princess Diana’s net worth was around £21 million, which is around $26.5 million today. And while some of her finances came from the Spencer family, much of Princess Diana’s net worth came from her divorce settlement — aka, Prince Charles.

In addition to her net worth, Princess Diana received around $1.2 million per year following her divorce. However, since she only lived one year after everything finalized, the Princess of Wales didn’t get to manage her money quite how she wanted. And, the executors of her estate even changed some of her will, which largely impacted Prince William and Prince Harry’s net worth, as well as the net worth of Princess Diana’s 17 godchildren.
