Some might say Kate Middleton is living the dream as one of the most admired members of royalty in the world.
The nation swooned in envy in 2011 when she tied the knot with Prince William, now 39, and her life looked set to play out in fairy tale style.
And of course, a royal lifestyle comes with plenty of riches so it will come as no surprise that mum of three Kate has a personal fortune of millions.
In fact thanks to various financial sources, The Duchess of Cambridge, 39, is now worth at least £5 million and according to global wealth tracking firm Wealth-X, Kate could be worth up to £7.3 million.
But The Duchess’s millions aren’t just down to her status as royalty, far from it. It turns out that Kate has an impressive level of wealth of her own, linked to her own family’s hard work in business as well as, reportedly, her Grandfather’s foresight to start a trust fund for his loved ones.
Kate’s very health bank balance is thought to be largely accredited to her parent’s party planning business, known as Party Pieces. The business, owned by Carole and Michael Middleton is thought to be worth around £30 million and the trust fund Kate has enjoyed the benefits off is said to stand at a hefty seven figures.
While many of the smaller details of Kate’s fortune are kept private, some public records do give an insight into other income the Duchess has enjoyed. One such windfall came in 2018 when she sold the Chelsea apartment she had previously shared with sister Pippa, now 37.
The plush pad where Kate lived before moving into Kensington Palace, was purchased for £780,000 and sold for a whopping £1.95 million, meaning Kate earned a large profit from the sale.
Of course, as second in line to the throne, Prince William has a vast fortune and just being part of the royal family means Kate enjoys the family’s combined royal wealth of around £63 billion.
The Duke of Cambridge’s individual fortune is thought to mostly derive from the finances he inherited after the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
The late Diana left brothers William and Harry £12, 966,022 of which there was £8,502.330 remaining after death taxes. However, this had grown to £20 million by the time the Princes were old enough to inherit the money.
