While most people know that the royals are quite wealthy, not everyone knows exactly how they make their money. The answer is that it’s a combination of both private and public funds. Of course, it is a bit of a complicated scenario, as is the case with most things that have to do with royals. The majority of the Queen’s income, as well as her late husband’s and children’s incomes, comes from three different sources. These are the public Sovereign Grant, and the private Duchies of Cornwall and Duchies of Lancaster. Here’s how much each royal is worth.
Queen Elizabeth – $550 Million
The Queen has been reigning for 70 years, and thus she has accumulated wealth accordingly. Her income comes from private and public sources as well as many plots of land. She owns multiple properties including the Balmoral Castle which itself is worth $140 million.
Charles, Prince of Wales – $100 Million
Prince Charles is next in line for the throne, and he will become King one day. His net worth stands at $100 million, which will increase once he assumed the throne. This is due to the fact that he will inherit the Queen’s assets. Additionally, Charles has his own investments in businesses and real estate ventures.
