Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s net worth was recently compared with that of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s.

Last week, it was reported that the Duchess of Cambridge amassed a huge fortune even before marrying Prince William. Her net worth is being estimated between $7 to $10 million.

The Duke of Cambridge, on the other hand, has a net worth of about $40 million. His money comes from his late mom, Princess Diana, his late great-grandmother Queen Mother, his previous work as a helicopter pilot for the RFA, and from the benefits he’s been receiving from the Sovereign Grant.

Even though Prince Harry is younger than Prince William, and he won’t become the future king, his net worth is also estimated at $40 million. Other than the funds he inherited from his mom and great-grandmother, Prince Harry’s other sources of income include his work as a British Army captain and his benefits from the Sovereign Grant.

Markle’s wealth mostly comes from her work as an actress. Before marrying Prince Harry, Markle was part of the long-running USA Network drama “Suits.” Her net worth of $5 million also comes from the movies that she starred in, her lifestyle blog, The Tig, and her Instagram account.

When combined, Prince William and Middleton’s net worth are still much bigger than Prince Harry and Markle. But it is safe to say that both couples live very comfortable lives.

According to TIME, the royal family as a whole has an estimated net worth of $88 billion. Queen Elizabeth II’s net worth was estimated at $520 million earlier this year. Lagging closely behind the monarch is her eldest son, Prince Charles, who has an estimated $400 million net worth.

As of this year, Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, has amassed a net worth of $5 million. Princess Anne’s net worth is roughly around $100 million, Prince Andrew has an estimated net worth of $82 million, and Prince Edward has a net worth of $45 million.
