It's no secret that members of the royal family are doing well for themselves-their collective net worth is estimated around the $88 billion mark according to Forbes, with Prince Harry and Prince William accounting for approximately $40 million each. But what about the latest royal to have captured the public's imagination?
Before the announcement for her engagement to Jack Brooksbank, Princess Eugenie's name may not have carried the same instant recognition in America that her royal cousins garnered, but with the second royal wedding of the year coming up on Friday, the third of the Queen's four granddaughter has quickly risen to prominence on the royal scene.
Eugenie and Jack are slated to tie the knot tomorrow in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same church that played host to her cousin Harry and Meghan's big day. But a wedding venue isn't the only thing that Eugenie shares with her new cousin-in-law, the Duchess of Sussex; in fact, the Princess's net worth is almost identical to Meghan's pre-wedding net worth, at a cool $4.8 million.
As you might expect, most of that money is thought to have come to Eugenie via her grandmother, the Queen, and great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, who was rumored to have put a sizable amount of her personal wealth into trust funds for the children before she passed away in 2002. She also reportedly benefits from a substantial trust that was set up as part of the highly-publicized divorce of her parents, Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson.
Not all of Eugenie's earnings come from family, though. When you think of the royal family, a 9-to-5 job may not be front and center, but Eugenie has been a dedicated career girl (another thing she and Meghan have in common) since she graduated from Newcastle University in 2013 with degrees in art history and English literature. She spent two years working in New York as a specialist at the online auction house Paddle8, during which she and Brooksbank maintained a long-distance relationship, and currently works in London as an associate director of Hauser & Wirth, a contemporary art gallery.
