From the jeweled crowns and lavish ceremonies to expensive travels, balls, and parties, royal families around the world have monumental expenses to keep up with their lifestyles. Though taxpayers often contribute to the monarchies expenses, generations of wealth, property, and investments have also made royals from around the world extremely wealthy.

From the British monarchy who have a massive amount of wealth as private citizens to other monarchies across the globe who are rolling in dough, the net worth of today’s royal families will leave you astounded.

The Spanish crown gets their money right from taxpayers. Each year, they are paid just over $9 million. Their payments are broken up into monthly installments with the king, the queen, the prince, and the princess getting various monthly sums.

Spain’s National Heritage group is in charge of maintaining the crown’s royal palaces, country residences, and art collections. If this is how much the family is bringing in each year, we can’t begin to imagine how much they are worth overall.
