Prince Harry net worth: Prince Harry is a member of the British royal family who has a net worth of $40 million. He was born Henry Charles Albert David on September 15, 1984 in Paddington, London, United Kingdom. Members of the royal family do not have last names. Harry is the son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana Spencer (Princess of Wales).
Prince Harry’s mother and father divorced in 1996 and Princess Diana was tragically killed in a car accident in Paris the following year. His paternal grandparents are Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh. His brother, Prince William (Duke of Cambridge), is the heir apparent to the throne when their father becomes King. Prince Harry is also known, in his military role, as Captain Harry Wales.
Though Prince Harry has had his share of negative attention in the media, he redeemed himself in 2005 when he entered into the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He joined the Alamein Company and completed officer training to be commissioned as a Comet (second lieutenant) in the Blues and Royals, a regiment of the Household Cavalry in the British Army. In 2008 he was promoted to lieutenant. The prince was deployed to Iraq in 2007, a move Prince Harry supported, saying, “There’s no way I’m going to put myself through Sandhurst and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country.” Harry would not serve in Iraq, however, as the head of the British Army at the time, General Sir Richard Dannatt, feared he would be a ‘high dollar target.’
Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018. Not long after they announced they were expecting their first child together.
Prince Harry Net Worth – The Diana Trust:
When Diana and Charles divorced, he paid her a $24 million settlement. That’s the same as around $40 million today after adjusting for inflation. After her death, the money was put in trust for William and Harry to inherit on their respective 30th birthdays. By the time they both were 30, the trust had appreciated to the point that each son ended up inheriting $40 million.
Unfortunately for Harry, he will not benefit from a trust called the Duchy of Cornwall. In 1337, King Edward III established a trust to benefit the heir apparent to the British throne. Today the Duchy owns a $1 billion real estate portfolio that produces a $20-30 million income every year. As long as Queen Elizabeth is sitting on the throne, Harry’s father Charles is the beneficiary of the income. When Charles becomes King, William will be the beneficiary.
