Where Does Prince Harry’s Massive Wealth Come From?
The prince and his brother got a large inheritance from their mother, Princess Diana, and another prominent member of the royal family.
The wealth-tracking site celebritynetworth.com estimates that Prince Harry is worth $40 million, a sum he’s accumulated from funds left in trust to him by his mother, Princess Diana, an inheritance from the Queen Mother (that reportedly included her jewels), and his former salary as a captain in the British Army (where he earned between $50,000 and $53,000 a year, according to Forbes).
His brother, Prince William, served in the Royal Air Force and reportedly earned between $68,000 and $74,000 a year as a flight lieutenant. Since the two princes inherited the same amount from their mother—about $10 million after taxes—the brothers are probably worth a similar amount now.
PRINCE WILLIAM AND PRINCE HARRY’S NET WORTHS ARE REPORTEDLY WORTH ABOUT THE SAME.
Their father, Prince Charles, makes money through income from the Duchy of Cornwall, “a private estate that funds the activities of whoever holds the title of Prince of Wales and his family,” Time reports. It’s currently valued at around $1.3 billion, and Prince Charles reportedly received $22.9 million in income from it between March 2016 and March 2017.
He used part of those funds to pay for not only his own expenses but also those of his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and travel and clothing expenses incurred by his two sons and the Duchess of Cambridge.
After Prince Harry marries Markle tomorrow, she too will reportedly be able to access those funds for her own clothing allowance.
