Royalty breeds kings and queens, but most importantly, it breeds princesses who are celebrated almost as much as their parents. Princesses are people of synonymous with beauty, power and wealth. They are a dignified lot who have been exalted above mere mortals right from the beginning of time.
However, gone are the days when the distinguishing feature of every princess is just beauty. Even though beauty matters, the dignity of their wealth and how they use it matters even more now. It would be safe to say that the true mark of royalty these days is wealth, wealth and more wealth. So instead of telling you how beautiful princesses are, we bring you a list of the richest Princesses in the world.
These Princesses have distinguished themselves in making wealth and using it to better the lives of others while still swimming in it. Everything about them radiates money, from the designer clothes they wear to their diamond jewelry, to their expensive vacations and the expensive homes they live in. Read on to see the world’s ten Wealthiest Princesses and what they are worth.
12. Princess Eugenie Of York – $5 Million
We’re starting this list of richest princesses in the world with Princess Eugenie, the second and younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Sarah, Duchess of York. She is the seventh and the second female in the line of succession to the throne of the Commonwealth realms. As an industrious Princess, she works as a benefit auctions manager. Her first royal engagement was opening Teenage Cancer Trust’s unit for young cancer patients in Leeds on 23 October 2008.
Not all of Princess Eugine’s income comes from her entitlement as a member of the royal family. As a matter of fact, the princess is not a “working royal but definitely she is a devoted career lady. She has worked in a few places where she made moderate earnings: She was a specialist at a New York-based online auction house Paddle8. Currently, she works as an associate director of a London-based contemporary art gallery Hauser & Wirth and her annual salary is impressively around £110k
11. Princess Beatrice Of York – $5 Million

She was formerly the sixth in the line of succession to the throne, but with the birth of Princess Charlotte, Beatrice became the seventh, and the third female, in the line of succession to the throne of the sixteen Commonwealth realms.
Being a non-working royal means that Princess Beatrice is not entitled to any income from the royal family but like her sister Eugenie, she is entitled to rewards for being among the Queen Mother’s grandchildren. She and her sister both have a share in their parent’s £3 million divorce settlement as well as the £1.4 million trust fund set aside for their education.
Aside from the royal money, Beatrice did engage herself in jobs that helped boost her income. She worked full time in business, shortly after graduating from Goldsmiths, University of London. She was the Vice President of software company Afiniti that was valued at $1.6 billion in 2017. Her annual salary is estimated at £83,810 (about $107,000). Her engagement and possible marriage to Edoardo “Edo” Mapelli Mozzi in 2020 could see her net worth increase in the coming years.
