Kate Middleton: $50 Million

Thanks to their business, Party Pieces, Kate Middleton's enterprising family has an estimated fortune of $50 million, which is only a small portion of the British Royal Family's total wealth.

It is unknown how much, if any, of Kate Middleton's wealth originates from the Middleton family. Nevertheless, as the mother of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, she has become a cherished global icon because of her down-to-earth demeanour and impeccable sense of style.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: $60 Million

Prince Harry, who is no longer performing formal royal responsibilities, left the British Army after serving for ten years in 2015. He was a captain in the Army Air Corps before leaving the service, earning over $45,000 per year.

After Harry turned 30 in September 2014 and received an estimated $12.3 million inheritance from Princess Diana's estate, his royal net worth significantly increased.

According to Forbes, Prince Harry has seen his fortune rise to an estimated $60 million because of the huge contracts he and Markle struck for their Archewell Productions and Archewell Audio labels for Netflix and Spotify, respectively. Prince Harry now resides in a $14.7 million mansion in Montecito, California.

Prince William: $100 Million

Prince William is the first in line to the throne and the eldest son of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana. A substantial percentage of the future king's net fortune stems from a $12.3 million bequest from Diana's estate, which Charles received on his 30th birthday in 2012.

According to Marie Claire, William inherited Charles' billion-dollar real estate empire after his grandmother died. Personal income generated by the Duchy of Cornwall ranges between $20 and $30 million each year.
