After Queen Elizabeth II's passing, Camilla officially became Queen Consort of the United Kingdom. Over the years, she's become the patron of several profitable organizations and charities. She uses her Celebrity Net Worth estimated $5 million net worth to support the likes of Trinity Hospice and Arthritis Research UK organizations.
So, how did Camilla accumulate her wealth? Well, she happens to own various real estate properties that add to her net worth.

Her fortune is expected to grow even more now that she and Harry have teamed up with Netflix. In September 2020, they announced a multi-year "mega-deal" with the streaming platform. According to Celebrity Net Worth, they plan to launch their own "Scripted content, documentaries, and children's programming" production company.
23. Princess Michael of Kent – $8 Million

That net worth is estimated to be about $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Princess Michael and her husband reside in a royal estate, but apparently, have had to pay for their own rent since 2010. Her net worth is expected to continue to grow as she continues to write. Not too bad of a deal!
22. Princess Eugenie – $10 Million

20. Kate Middleton – $10 Million
The "What's mine is yours" mindset does not apply when it comes to Royals Kate Middleton and Prince William. Before becoming a member of the Royal family, Kate and the rest of the Middleton family were comfortably wealthy on their own.

19. Zara Tindall – $20 Million
The accomplished Zara Tindall is Princess Anne's daughter and the eldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II. Like her mother, Zara is a professional equestrian. In 2010, her love for the sport led to a business venture that combined her love for horses with clothing.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, these opportunities led her net worth to become an estimated $20 million in recent years.
18. Prince Richard – $25 Million
Prince Richard, also known as the Duke of Glouceser, is Queen Elizabeth II's cousin. He has said that he believes himself to be "The poorest" out of all of the crown's relations. But, according to our list, that is simply not the case. In his prime, the Duke had a profitable career as an architect.
He was such a successful architect that he earned the title of President of the Society of Architect Artists. The accomplished visionary owns the Gloucester estate as well as various Royal heirlooms. According to Celebrity Net Worth, when his assets are combined, his estimated net worth is about $25 million.
17. Prince Philip – $30 Million
Prince Philip was the lucky man who called Queen Elizabeth II his wife for over 70 years. That is, of course, a priceless treasure in itself. However, when it comes to financial resources, Philip was well endowed before his tragic passing. From his duties serving as the Duke of Edinburgh, he had a longtime annual income of half a million dollars.
He recently gave up this title and its yearly payments to his youngest son, Prince Edward. All in all, his financial standing triples other Royals such Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Prince Philip's net worth was estimated to be about $30 million. There is no denying that he will be sorely missed.
16. Princess Anne – $30 Million
As the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Anne dedicated her life to becoming 1 of the most hardworking and well-rounded Royals alive today. She has become a widely respected figure in Britain. In fact, sources have reported that Anne has contributed to more than 300 charities but prefers to remain behind the scenes.
Before ascending through the ranks of the Royal family, Anne found a love for equestrian. This led to several Olympic wins. And a daughter, Zara Tindall, who followed in her footsteps, priceless! According to Celebrity Net Worth, Princess Anne lives comfortably with an estimated net worth of about $30 million.
15. Princess Diana – $31.5 Million
Although she is no longer with us, the late Princess Diana has a financial footprint that remains today. According to Forbes, her net worth was about $31.5 million when she passed away. After the tragic car accident that took her life, her fortune was split and dispersed to Princes William and Harry.
William and Harry also received collections of her jewelry and other mementos from her collection. Some of this collection has already begun to disperse throughout the Royal family. As much as Princess Di was worth in dollar bills, she remains priceless in memory as the "People's Princess" to Great Britain and the world.
14. Prince Michael of Kent – $40 Million
According to several sources, Prince Michael of Kent holds an estimated net worth of $40 million. As Queen Elizabeth's first cousin and King George V's grandson, Michael was once 7th in line for the throne. Since the family has expanded, he now sits 48th in line. Rich with Royal passion, the Prince, started his own business.
Michael is chairman of his own company. He focuses on "Property, education, technology, medical, and aviation industries," according to HRH Prince Michael of Kent GCVO's website.

Out of all Queen Elizabeth's children, Prince Andrew rarely enters the spotlight. However, while staying out of the Royal eye, he has created quite the track record as a successful businessman. In fact, the reason he is worth such a considerable amount is said to be because he has become a massively successful investor.

11. Sophie Helen – $45 Million
Sophie Helen, the Countess of Wessex, has been reported to be the Queen's closest confidante. According to Royal records, she regularly helps with the organization of Her Majesty's public appearances. We imagine that responsibility to be priceless compared to any other material item.

According to several sources, she holds an estimated net worth of about $45 million. She continues to use her fortune for many charity purposes to this day.
10. Prince Edward – $45 Million
Sophie's husband, Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, is the youngest of his siblings. Despite that, he has managed to hold a respectable career throughout his life that has left him quite successful. When Prince Philip stepped down as the Duke of Edinburgh in 2017, Prince Edward filled his shoes.

Harry and his brother, William, have remained close throughout their lives. Even their net worths are similar.
8. Prince Louis – $65 Million

With all of his inheritance, and support set up by his parents, along with the rest of the Royal family, you can bet that Prince Louis is going to be just fine.
7. Archie Harrison – $65-$90 Million
As explained earlier, Royal babies are a wonderful addition to society in the British economy's eyes.

So, how did Kitty amass such a considerable net worth? Well, she worked hard in a prominent career as a successful model. She even became a spokesmodel for BVLGARI, a well-respected Italian luxury jewelry brand. We hope her net worth hasn't started any cousin rivalries for Kitty and the Princes!

Though most of his money comes from his late Mother's life choices, he has created a successful life for himself.

3. Queen Elizabeth II – $600 Million
Now, the monarch you've been waiting for! Shocking to many, Queen Elizabeth herself was actually not the wealthiest Royal. Worth over half a billion dollars, the late Queen's fortune came from the massive properties she owned. This includes the Balmoral Castle, worth about $140 million, and the Sandringham House at around $65 million.
Though the Queen did not own the Crown estates such as the Buckingham Palace, she did collect 15-25% of the profits from them.
