How Queen Elizabeth’s net worth was built

When you own a couple of castles, you’re bound to have a few bucks.

Queen Elizabeth II’s property holdings include Balmoral Castle in Scotland, Sandringham House in Norfolk, marine land and fruit farms throughout the United Kingdom.

As most of her assets are tied to her position, Queen Elizabeth isn’t one of the world’s billionaires. The property linked to the Crown Estate includes Buckingham Palace, the crown jewels, the royal art collection, 263,000 farming acres, and oddly, all of the U.K.’s swans. All are part of a royal family trust.

This trust brings the royal family about $365 million annually. The queen’s share is more than $50 million.

Queen Elizabeth receives a $12.9 million government stipend annually. Her personal net worth is $550 million as of June 2017 according to the TheRichest.com.
