What is Prince William and Kate's combined net worth? Inside Cambridges' fortune on ten years of togetherness
Prince William and Kate Middleton are celebrating their wedding anniversary on April 29. The royal pair tied the knot ten years ago at Westminster Abbey in London after years of dating. As per reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were college sweethearts who met each other at University of St Andrews.
It seems like yesterday when Catherine exchanged vows looking gorgeous in an Alexander McQueen gown. However, a lot of years have passed since that special day and in these years, the couple has welcomed three beautiful children too — Prince Louis of Cambridge, Prince George of Cambridge, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge. On the occasion of their marriage anniversary, they have released two photos of themselves.
The pictures were taken by celebrity photographer Chris Floyd at Kensington Palace ahead of their anniversary. The first photo showed William and Kate holding each other’s hands. The mother-of-three looked stunning in a beautiful long-sleeved floral blue dress from the brand Ghost London while her husband rocked a blue jumper. The second picture looked warmer as Kate leaned on William for a hug. Both of them were smiling from their hearts.
What is William and Kate's combined net worth?
A decade has passed since their fairytale wedding and it has been said that together, William and Kate have built up quite the fortune. According to a 2020 Guarantor Loans’ report, their combined net worth is estimated around $50 million.
The 38-year-old prince’s individual net worth is nearly $40 million, most of which he has received from his late mother Lady Diana, from his great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, and the Duchy of Cornwall fund which his father Prince Charles manages. On the other hand, Kate might be a “commoner”, but she also belongs to a well-to-do family.
At the time, when she was not associated with the royal family, her net worth was roughly around $7 million. After completing her college education, she joined the business owned by her parents, the event management company Party Pieces. Kate’s mother Carole Middleton was an air hostess, but to spend time with her family and kids, she started the firm.
“In 1987, I had two young children and was pregnant with my son, James. We had come back to the UK from living abroad and I was a full-time mum. I didn’t want to miss out on my children growing up, so I considered starting my own business. Party Pieces was a result of my personal need for my own children’s parties. You had to hunt high and low to find suitable party supplies. I found suppliers and put up notices in my daughters’ playgroup that said ‘Planning a Party?’ and started getting orders. My memories of those early days are very vivid,” Carole Middleton told Good Housekeeping in 2018.
She also mentioned how Kate also used to work for her company. “My children have all worked for the business. Catherine started the First Birthday brand — she chose the products and looked after all the imagery and the catalog production. Pippa set up the blog, as we didn’t have one. James came up with the idea of personalized cakes and got them off the ground for us. Because they all grew up with me working, Party Pieces has been very much part of our lives and what we talked about. I still ask their advice and say ‘What do you think of this?’” Carole added.
