KEY POINTS

  • Queen Elizabeth's net worth is around $500 million
  • The combined Royal Family net worth is estimated at $88 billion
  • Donald Trump's net worth, as of 2019, is $3.1 billion

Queen Elizabeth’s net worth is still up there when compared with other world leaders but how does it compare to the net worth of the president of the United States?

The Royal Family is expectedly rich. Towns and Country estimates the net worth of the family to be at least $88 billion. Queen Elizabeth II allegedly has a $500 million net worth. This might be a bit low when compared to Donald Trump’s net worth which is around $3.1 billion.

The two world leaders cannot be more different from one another, from leadership to their lifestyle. The bulk of Trump’s wealth comes from his real estate properties, hotels and golf courses. Even before becoming the most powerful person in the U.S., Trump is already a billionaire in his own right. Some of the most notable assets he has are $1.47 billion-worth of real estate in New York City, $550 million in golf courses and $170 million from his own brand businesses. 

The wealth of Queen Elizabeth II, on the other hand, comes from different sources which is part of being a royal family member. History states that trust funds are responsible for the majority of the wealth of royal family members. The Crown Estate trust fund, for example, is capital valued at $17.4 billion in 2019 while its property value is $16.4 billion. 

The members of the monarchy are sourcing their daily expenses from the trust funds. This includes clothing and traveling expenses. The Queen’s share from the Crown Estates was pegged at $104 million last year. Some of her notable assets are the 20,000 acre Sandringham Estate and the Duchy of Lancaster, which gives additional income. Last year, the Duchy of Lancaster gave $26 million to the Queen. 

A lot may not know but Queen Elizabeth likes horse racing. Per Quartz, Her Majesty owns at least 100 race horses which fetched £7 million ($9.2 million) over three decades. However, the Queen is not the wealthiest in the Royal Family. That distinction is for The Duke of Westminster and the Grosvenor family who own a property empire in posh areas in London, Scotland and Spain. 

One familiar trait between Queen Elizabeth and Donald Trump is their fancy for luxury cars. A part of her collection are some timeless pieces such as the 1972 Citroën SM Presidentielle, 1964 Mercedes-Benz 600 Pullman landaulet, 1974 Rover P5B, 2001 Jaguar Daimler Super V8, Land Rover Defender and 2016 Bentley Bentayga, among others. 

Some of Trump’s most prized vehicle possessions are the 2004 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Tesla Roadster, 2015 Mercedes-Benz S600, Ferrari F355 Spyder and Maybach 57S, among others.
