Contrary to popular belief, the Royals aren’t funded by taxpayers. They’re independently wealthy with inheritances, crowd estates, and allowances. Alone, the crown jewels have an estimated worth between £3 and £5 billion ($4 – $6.6 billion). Take a look at what they are all worth.
Queen Elizabeth II ($550 Million)
The only people in Britain whose wealth rivals the Queen’s are none other than two of Britain’s finest exports; Victoria and David Beckham. Most of the Queen’s wealth derives from her many properties. She’s got a $140 million castle in the Scottish Highlands and the $65 million Sandringham House. Surprisingly, the Queen is the owner of every single wild swan in the country. She is also an avid stamp collector, owning one of the largest and most valuable collections in the world. On top of her over $10 billion in properties and art collection, Queen Elizabeth II gets a $12.9 million government stipend for her role as the monarch.
