The British royal family is considered one of the richest monarchies of our time. Her Majesty and her relatives are the owners of profitable estates, numerous jewelry collections, and various masterpieces, estimated in several billions of dollars. Moreover, their accounts in most reliable banks also contain pretty big sums. The Princes William and Harry are more than wealthy young people. Their noble origin and belonging to the Windsor dynasty contributed greatly to their current financial state. Moreover, their mother and great-grandmother provided the two brothers with a small gift.

After reaching the age of 30, William and Harry obtained a possibility to use the sums that were bequeathed to them by the late mother, Princess Diana. According to media reports, each of the princes inherited about $13,000,000!

Apart from that, William and Harry also possess the luxurious legendary wedding dress and other of Diana’s clothes, expensive ornaments, family photos, video recordings and part of late Princess’ correspondence of extremely high value.

However, that’s not all. They have also inherited large sums from their great-grandmother. According to media reports, Queen Elizabeth’s mother bequeathed about $18,000,000 to William and Harry, but she didn’t provide access to the money evenly, as you might imagine.

Most of the amount was inherited by Diana’s youngest son. This did not mean Harry was a favorite great-grandson.

As Charles becomes a new king, William will become the new Prince of Wales and will receive the Duchy of Cornwall. It is worth mentioning that the public and private charitable assets of the heir are financed exactly from this area. This will mean William’s financial position will be much more stable than Harry’s, considering the last won’t probably receive his chance to become the king.

Even in the royal families, there is a certain injustice concerning those who are doomed to live in the shadow of older brothers or sisters. Perhaps, the Queen Mother can be considered not entirely fair towards William, but the reason she gave Harry more is quite resourceful, isn’t it?
