Prince William | Net Worth & Family Fortune

Net Worth

The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William’s net worth as of June 2022 is a decent $30 million.

The majority of his wealth comes from a trust fund he inherited from his late mother, Princess Diana.

Similarly, Prince William and his brother Prince Harry each received a couple of million in 2002 when their great grandmother passed away.

Their great grandmother Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother had established a trust fund for William and Harry, which paid them approximately $3.1 million each on their respective 21st birthday.

Likewise, they will receive an additional $5 million each from their great-grandmother’s trust fund when they turn 40.

In a given year, Prince Charles, William’s father, pays $4 million to cover William’s security, travel, and secretarial expenses.

Since Prince Harry stepped down from all his royal duties, it makes William the sole heir to their billion-dollar real estate portfolio called the Duchy of Cornwall after his father becomes King.

The real estate portfolio generates anywhere between $20 and $30 million each year in personal income for the next in line to the throne.

Family Fortune

Trust Fund

The trust fund that Diana had set for her children makes up for the majority of William and Harry’s net worth.

When Lady Diana and Prince Charles split in 1992, he paid her $24 million in a settlement which is around $40 million in today’s dollars, after adjusting for inflation.

After Diana died, the money was put in a trust for her children William and Harry to inherit when they turned 25.

By the time the brothers were 30, the trust fund had appreciated to the point that each of them ended up receiving $20 million.

Real Estate Inheritance

As per the royal law, the firstborn of the reigning monarch is the heir to the possession of the Duchy of Cornwall.

Duchy of Cornwall is a massive real estate portfolio that enables the Crown Prince to have a large income while awaiting the throne.

In William’s case, he becomes the Prince of Wales and beneficiary of the Duchy of Cornwall once Charles becomes King.

And after William becomes King, his eldest George will inherit the trust.

So let’s talk money!

The estimated value of the real estate portfolio is a staggering $1.3 billion as of this writing.

This includes 135,000 acres or 55 ha of land holdings in the United Kingdom over 23 countries.

Similarly, the land is used for farming, commercial real estate, and residential buildings, which are run by more than 150 employees.

In a typical year, the trust generates more than $20 million in income after tax, while in some years, it has topped $30 million.

“After-tax”?

We know members of the royal family do not pay taxes, but since 1993, Prince Charles has voluntarily paid taxes on his income.
