But, aside from that huge figure, Marie Claire reported this week that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate unexpectedly amassed a large fortune prior to becoming a member of the royal family.
Here’s everything we know about how much Meghan and Harry, and Kate and William, are worth:-
Kate Middleton is independently wealthy.
Kate has an estimated wealth in the region of $7—$10 (£5-£8) million. Rather than becoming wealthy upon marrying into the royal family in 2011, Kate had already amassed her fortune, mainly thanks to her family’s lucrative business.
Although, Prince William is worth a lot more than Kate. He is said to be worth around $40 (£30) million. The future king inherited large sums of money from his mother, Princess Diana, and from his great-grandmother, the Queen Mother.
William was a helicopter pilot in the RAF Search and Rescue Force for several years where he allegedly earned around $70,000 per annum. He also benefits from the Sovereign Grant, which helps to fund the royal family’s daily expenses.
Prince Harry is as rich as his brother.
The Duke of Sussex, Harry is also estimated to be worth around $40 (£30) million. Having also inherited money from his mother, Princess Diana, and from the Queen Mother, Prince Harry’s finances are comfortable.

He earned a salary from his time as a British Army captain, where he made around $50,000 (£38,100) per year. And, he also benefits from the Sovereign Grant just like his brother, for his daily expenses.
Well, Meghan’s wealth stems from her former career. The new royal bride’s net worth prior to marrying Prince Harry was $5 (£4) million. She earned this from her acting work.
