A list of the richest royals in the world. We regularly see royalty in the media with their money, pomp, and circumstance, but just how much money do the wealthiest royals actually have? After all, how financially powerful is the Queen of England compared to say, Bill Gates? Which is the richest royal family on the planet? These are burning questions that this list answers.
While royalty may hold power and authority due to their bloodline, they certainly don't necessarily hold the financial clout. The Sultan of Brunei, known for his wealth and opulence wouldn't even rank in the top 20 of Forbes annual Richest People list.
Many of the people on this list are some of the most well known royals in the world. Their fame, naturally is superceded by their fortunes. These people are some of the richest on earth and that's saying a lot.
So how rich then are the members of the world's royal families compared to each other? All your questions will be answered in the list below. Collection Photo: Ranald Mackechnie/Royal Mail
