Meet The Royal Who's Quietly Worth A Fortune
A personal fortune of over $6 million isn't to be sneezed at!
While everyone has been busy being enthralled by Meghan and Harry's romance, the wedding, Wills and Kate's children and whether Prince Philip has much time left, all the while one member of the royal family has been gathering a small fortune and getting seriously loaded.
Turns out, Princess Eugenie is said to be worth a cool $6.5 million. Yup, Fergie's daughter is positively rolling in it.
A lot of her money is thought to have come through trust funds -- Eugenie gets hers from the Queen and the Queen Mother. And she also reportedly gets a wad of cash from a trust that was set up as part of the divorce settlement of her parents, Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson.
And of course, she's not alone -- the royal family are famously minted -- the whole lot of them are collectively worth around $88 billion US according to reports. Harry and William are said to be worth a cool $60 million each. That's a lot of chinos.
But yes, while that does sound like money for nothing, before you go off on one about how the royal family are overpaid and underwhelming, here's something that may make that a bit more palatable.
Not all of Eugenie's earnings come from being posh.
She has also been earning a living in the art world -- she currently works in London as an associate director of Hauser & Wirth, a contemporary art gallery, after graduating from Newcastle University in 2013 with degrees in art history and English literature.
Smart and rich -- that's a good combo.
Eugenie will get married to her fiance Jack Brooksbank on October 12 this year at St George's chapel at Windsor Castle, the same church where Harry and Meghan got hitched in May.
And that may not be the only similarity to her cousin's big day -- Jack, who used to manage London nightclub Mahiki, is currently the UK ambassador for George Clooney and Rande Gerber's tequila brand, Casamigos. A royal round two for the Clooney's? We can't wait!
