Princess Diana, Prince William’s late mother, is largely responsible for his enormous net wealth.
If it weren’t for the large money left for him by Lady Diana, Prince William’s net worth as a royal would be far lower.
Prince William earned a living in the military before becoming a full-time working royal for the Firm. His annual income was allegedly between £50k and £55k, according to Forbes.
In 2006, he joined the Household Cavalry’s Blues and Royals unit before becoming a helicopter pilot with the RAF Search and Rescue Force.
In 2013, he resigned.
William began a civilian career as an ambulance pilot with East Anglian Air Ambulance in 2015, donating his $62,000 annual income to charity.
His pay did not make him a millionaire, but he did inherit numerous large sums of money from his family.
According to the Telegraph, his late mother Princess Diana left him between £10 million and £20 million when he turned 30 years old in 2012.
According to the BBC, William’s great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, also gave him a sizable inheritance.
The network reported that “Princes William and Harry will reportedly share around £14 million from the estate of their late great grandmother.”
Prince Harry also receives money from the Duchy of Cornwall, thanks to his father Charles.
It is a portfolio of properties created by Edward III in 1337 that always goes to the monarch’s “eldest surviving son and heir.”
According to the Duchy’s financial filings, Prince Charles collected £24.6 million between March 2018 and March 2019.
The Prince of Wales then spends the money on “public, charity, and private activities and those of his family,” which includes William and Duchess Kate and their children George, Charlotte, and Louis, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex once upon a time.
When Charles becomes King, the Duchy will be given to William.
The Queen, who is estimated to be worth £350 million, is also anticipated to give a quantity of money to William in her will, making him much wealthier.
William is eligible to the Sovereign Grant, which is funded by public taxation, as a working royal.
The Sovereign Grant, for example, funded roughly £74,000 for William and Kate’s official tour to the Middle East in 2019.
Finally, if William succeeds to the throne, he will receive an additional £72.5 million (the value of the British monarchy), which includes land, houses, mementos, and the Royal Art Collection.
