The British royal family is by far one of the most world-renowned monarchies. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning monarch in recent history, and her family has supported the Crown since her coronation. With a collective net worth of $88 billion, we ranked the wealthiest members of the British royal family by net worth.
Princess Charlotte – $5 billion
At age 5, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge is the richest member of the royal family. At birth, the Princess was worth nearly $5 billion – by far more than both of her brothers. Taking after her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, and her grandmother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, the young Princess has since become somewhat of a style icon. Dubbed the Charlotte effect, shawls, dresses, and shoes worn by the Princess in photographs tend to see huge spikes in sales – and that was before her first birthday.
Prince George – $3.6 billion
Prince George of Cambridge is third in line for the British throne following Prince Charles and Prince William, so it's no wonder that even at such a tender age he's estimated worth to the British Economy is $3.6 billion. Another fashion icon, he was named as one of GQ's 50 Best Dressed Men in Britain in 2015.
Queen Elizabeth II – $520 to $600 million
Her Majesty, the Queen of England, is reportedly worth between $520 and $600 million. Her income is quite diverse. It includes private estates like the Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, and Sandringham House in Norfolk. In addition, she receives public funds from the Crown Estate and the Duchy of Lancaster.
Prince Charles – $400 million
As heir to the throne and Duke of Cornwall, Prince Charles' net worth is slightly below the Queen's at $400 million. The bulk of his money comes from the Duchy of Cornwall which is the private estate. This estate funds the Prince of Wales and his family, including his son Prince William and, until 2020, Harry, Duke of Sussex.
Prince Louis – $130 million
Another royal baby who is worth more than the average person makes in a year is Prince Louis. As the youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Louis' birth boosted the British economy by between $100 million and $130 million. Although this is a shortfall from his older siblings, little Prince Louis is still worth more than some of the more senior members of the Royal Family.
Archie Harrison – $65 to $90 million
Although Archie Harrison did not receive an official royal title when he was born, he is still a grandson to the Prince of Wales and great-grandson to the Queen. Baby Archie has an estimated net worth of between $65 to 90 million and stands to inherit over $40 million from his parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Prince Andrew $75 million
Prince Andrew is worth nearly $75 million. As the Queen's son, he receives an annual stipend of $400,000, and his daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice are worth $4.8 million and $5 million respectively. In addition to working in the navy, Prince Andrew has also run a number of successful businesses.
Prince Edward – $45 million
