How much are late Queen Elizabeth II’s children worth now? A look into their fortune and how they earn their money.
Between The Crown and Oprah’s recent headline-making interview with the absconding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the British Royal Family, even more than usual, is on everyone’s mind.
But while some British royals are more well known than others, there are many that common, non-Buckingham-Palace-dwelling folk know nothing about.
For example, while everyone is familiar with Prince Charles, first in line to the throne, many people are unaware that he isn’t Queen Elizabeth’s only offspring.
Keep scrolling for a royal refresher on the complete list of Queen Elizabeth’s children in order from oldest to youngest and see how much they are worth now.
Queen Elizabeth has four children.
At the age of 96, Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II was a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Here’s everything you need to know about her and her husband Prince Philip’s children.
Who are Queen Elizabeth II’s children and what are their net worths now?
Ever looked at pictures of the royal family out and about and wondered, how do they afford that? The tiaras, the gowns, the enormous properties—it’s safe to assume that the royals are rolling in dough, and looking good while doing it. Since their jobs aren’t regular people’s jobs and royal family finances are complicated (taxes and all), we were curious about how the late Queen’s kids make their money—and how much they have to pass down through generations.
The children of late Queen Elizabeth II have a combined net worth of $680 million. Ahead, is the net worth of every child of late Queen Elizabeth II, from the eldest to the youngest.
Prince Charles (King Charles III) – $600 Million
- Full Name: Charles Philip Arthur George

The Queen’s first and oldest son is Charles, the Prince of Wales, who everyone knows better as the late Princess Diana’s ex-husband. Queen Elizabeth had Charles when she was in her twenties, and according to The Crown and other royal biographers, Charles and the Queen did not have a particularly close relationship.
As Queen, Elizabeth was forced to put Crown and Country above all else and Charles was raised by the nursery staff as his mother went on tours of the Commonwealth with her husband, Phillip.
The heir apparent has said that while he and his mother weren’t that close, he did enjoy a special relationship with Elizabeth’s mother, The Queen Mother, until her death in 2002.
King Charles III’s net worth: King Charles has an estimated net worth of $600 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Most of his money came from the Duchy of Cornwall, a private estate that funds the life and activities of whoever is the Prince of Wales and his family. The Duchy of Cornwall holds about $1.3 billion in total assets, including land and real estate, and covers the expenses of Prince Charles, his wife Queen Consort Camilla, and his sons Prince William and Prince Harry and their wives.
King Charles further inherited Queen Elizabeth II’s assets, following her September 2022 passing.
Anne, Princess Royal – $30 Million
- Full Name: Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise
- Birthday: August 15, 1950
- Age: 72 years old
- Spouse: Timothy Laurence (m. 1992), Mark Philips (m. 1973-1992)
- Children: Zara Tindall, Peter Philips
- Net Worth: $30 million
Next comes Queen Elizabeth’s only daughter, Anne, Princess Royal, who the Queen also gave birth to while in her twenties. Although Anne is the second oldest child of the monarch, she’s 14th in line for the throne, thanks to the royals’ patriarchal ascension system.
While Charles has been known to imply that the Queen was a somewhat uncaring mother, Anne disagrees. She has said that while the Queen did have the responsibility of being a monarch, Elizabeth “care[d] for us in exactly the same way as any other mother did.”
Princess Anne’s net worth: The only daughter of the late Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Anne is worth an estimated $30 million, according to Wealth-X. Her assets include a yearly stipend from the queen, $7 million in jewelry, a home worth $15 million, and a trust fund set up by her grandfather.
Prince Andrew, Duke of York – $5 Million
- Full Name: Andrew Albert Christian Edward
- Birthday: February 19, 1960
- Age: 62 years old
- Height: 1.83 m
- Spouse: Sarah, Duchess of York (m. 198601996)
- Children: Prince Beatrice, Princess Eugenie
- Net Worth: $5 million
Nearly 10 years after Anne was born, Queen Elizabeth had her third child, Prince Andrew, Duke of York.
Yes, that Prince Andrew. But before getting into the sordid details of his later years, let’s take a look at Andrew’s childhood.
Unlike his older siblings, Prince Andrew was born after Queen Elizabeth had ascended to the throne. With eight years under her belt as the reigning monarch, the Queen appeared to be more at ease in her royal role and became a more hands-on mother to her younger children, biographer Robert Lacey notes.
Prince Andrew had his fair share of scandals when he was growing up, but the biggest was certainly when he was accused of sexual abuse by Virginia Roberts Giuffre and was also shown to have close ties to the convicted sex trafficker and financier Jeffrey Epstein.
The Palace has vehemently denied the claims, but ever since the news about Prince Andrew broke, he seems to have taken a step back from his official duties as a royal.
Prince Andrew’s net worth: Currently, Celebrity Net Worth estimates Prince Andrew’s worth to be $5 million. Prince Andrew’s net worth was estimated to be around £5 million in 2017, per Bloomberg, but he reportedly paid Virginia Giuffre a £12 settlement after she accused him of raping her at the age of 17. His net worth would likely not have been nearly enough to cover this, per Bloomberg—his mother pays him a £250,000 stipend per year, and he receives a £20,000 pension from the Navy—so it’s widely believed that the late Queen Elizabeth II stepped in to pay much of the settlement.
Prince Edward, Earl of Essex – $45 Million
- Full Name: Prince Edward
- Birthday: March 10, 1964
- Age: 58 years old
- Children: Lady Louise Windsor, James, Viscount Severn
- Net Worth: $45 million
Finally, there’s Prince Edward, Earl of Essex, and Queen Elizabeth’s youngest son. Although it’s usually the youngest children who get away with the most, of all the Queen’s children, Prince Edward’s actually been involved in the least amount of scandals.
He and his wife (the only woman he’s ever been married to, in contrast to all of his divorced siblings), Countess Sophie Rhys-Jones, are also rumored to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s favorites.
Prince Edward is even rumored to assume his father’s title of Duke of Edinburgh when Prince Philip dies.
Prince Edward’s net worth: Prince Edward, the youngest of Queen Elizabeth’s kids has a comfortable net worth of $45 million, according to Wealth-X, comprised of wages given from the Queen as well as the Sovereign Grant.
