It’s difficult to pinpoint the exact amount he’s worth, but William, his wife, Kate Middleton, and their two kids, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, definitely live a comfortable life. First off, the 35-year-old royal made around $60,000 per year when he served as an air ambulance pilot. However, he left that job in July 2017.
According to The Telegraph, William also received over $11 million of an inheritance from his late mother, Princess Diana, on his 30th birthday. Excuse us…
However, the biggest source of William’s income is the money he receives from the Duchy of Cornwall. The Duchy of Cornwall was created back in 1337 and was designed to provide income to sons of the royal monarchy. Currently, Prince Charles runs it, and though we don’t know exactly how much he gives to William, Charles currently profits about $26.4 million a year from it, according to Pop Sugar.
That said, William and Kate will be in even better shape when Charles takes the throne. Why, you ask? Because the Duchy of Cornwall is passed down to the eldest son in the family when their parent takes the throne. Right off the bat, William would be over $20 million richer. Not a bad deal. On top of that, William has a super wealthy family he could turn to. His grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, is worth a reported $500 million, while his father, Prince Charles, is worth an estimated $370 million.
If William and Kate are ever in financial trouble they could always turn to their kids as well! Charlotte reportedly had a net worth of $4.6 billion when she was only one-year-old. Casual. Now that she’s two years old, we bet her worth has grown even more.
And even though her brother is older, Charlotte is worth more than him. That’s ok though. He’s still reportedly worth an estimated $3 billion. If one thing’s for sure, we’d like to be part of that family!
