Estimated net worth: $200 million The Dutch Royal Family looks like the picture-perfect family bred in the labs where they probably made the Kinder chocolate kids. With a net worth of $300 million, you’d imagine that they live pretty comfortably.
They are also one of the most expensive families in the world, and here’s why: The family has invested in the Royal Dutch Shell Oil Company, and their personal fortune is approximately $200 million. Their extravagant lifestyle in their Amsterdam royal palace is the dream life, but it does come at a cost.
British Royal Family
Estimated net worth: $88 billion The overall wealth of the beloved and well-known British Royal Family is calculated by the individual family member’s earnings. For example, the late Queen Elizabeth’s fortune was around $530 million and Meghan Markle’s is at $5 million.
Also, the calculation includes possessions such as art collections, prized jewels, estates, and personal items like clothing, jewelry, and family heirlooms. Another part of their wealth comes from a trust called the Crown Estate which gave the Queen 25 percent of all the revenue gained from tourism, as well as a portion from citizen taxes. Will King Charles inherit all this?
They choose to re-wear designer pieces, they furnish their home with Ikea furniture, and they eat leftovers, which they store in Tupperware containers just like everyone else.
This is due to them owning three entire royal palaces: one in Amsterdam, one called the Noordeinde Palace, and one called Huis ten Bosch. So, it goes without saying that their expenses can get pretty massive.
Thai Royal Family
Estimated net worth: $60 billion The Thai Royal family is most famously known as King Bhumibol Adulyadej, their late king who acquired a fortune of $30 billion in the Crown Property Bureau.
When he died and the new king took over, those fortunes were passed down and added to the new king’s personal earnings. Many speculate where the money has come from, and even the family has admitted that the origins of their money are quite mysterious.
