The Queen’s net worth when she died and the huge money King Charles now inherits

The 96-year-old monarch was valued in the billions back in 2017, according to a brand valuation consultancy firm Brand Finance

Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family reportedly have assets worth around €78 billion of the British Monarchy, which have now been left behind following her majesty’s death on September 8 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

The 96-year-old monarch was valued in the billions back in 2017, according to a brand valuation consultancy firm Brand Finance.

However, the Queen’s personal wealth was reportedly closer to the €490 million mark through investments, art, jewels, and real estate, according to a 2021 estimate published by Forbes.

 

Despite the numerous estimates doing the rounds online, the Queen’s true net worth has never been disclosed by ‘The Firm,’ and likely never will be.

The Guardian reported last year that the queen successfully convinced the British government to change the law – in the 1970s – in order to hide her exact level of wealth from the public, claiming it would be embarrassing for the public to know.

While many are asking the question of where the fortune will go now, it is understood that King Charles III inherits the majority of the Queen’s €492 million, according to Forbes.

The entire royal family was estimated to be worth at least €78 billion as of 2017, but the financing that makes up the wealth behind the crown is complex and is spread out among many members.

Along with the Queen, these members include King Charles and his wife the Queen Consort Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall; Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge; Princess Anne, the queen’s daughter; the queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, and his wife Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, Forbes claims.
