Before we know it, we’ll be gathering around our TV screens to watch Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding to Jack Brooksbank unfold! But now that the happy couple is finally saying “I do,” fans are extremely curious about their net worths. And so it turns out, these two are worth a lot of money combined…
First up, Eugenie. The 28-year-old isn’t considered a “working royal,” but does have a full-time job like the rest of us as an associate director at an art gallery in London. While her yearly salary is unclear, Eugenie actually has a lot of money in trust funds — and we’re talking more than one.
According to The Guardian, her first one was set up by the Queen Mother, Eugenie’s great-grandmother, in the early 1990s. The late royal allegedly put two‐thirds of her assets in the fun resulting in Eugenie earning a “several” million pounds (it’s been reported she passed on £19 million to her great-grandchildren when she died in 2002 at age 101).
But that’s not all. When Eugenie’s parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, divorced in 1996, Fergie and her two daughters, Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, 30, got a £3 million settlement, according to The Telegraph, and £1.4 million of that was put into a trust fund for the sisters. Let’s just note that was over 20 years ago, so who knows what’s in the account today.
Long story short, Eugenie is seemingly worth a couple of million American dollars, so let’s just say she has nothing to worry about — especially with Jack by her side. Jack is a commoner, so he, too, goes to work. Jack is the UK ambassador for George Clooney and Rande Gerber’s tequila brand Casamigos, and he also formerly managed a nightclub. And while we don’t know his exact salary, it’s clear he contributes to their earnings.
Oh, and once the royal duo adds all their wedding gifts to their bank account tomorrow, they’ll have even more money! We’re jealous.
