Princess Charlotte is the middle child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, but when you look at her net worth, he clearly sees that she is at the top, having an estimated $5 billion the year she was born. Ever since her birth, she has become somewhat of an icon for the royal family, junior edition.
With her wacky style and crazy antics, she is always in the spotlight at every royal engagement she attends-and with that her monetary value skyrockets.
Being only 4 years old, Princess Charlotte has made a name for herself as a kind of mini version of her mother, Kate Middleton, a royal icon in her own right. The young princess has had an advantage over her older brother Prince George since the beginning, as from the moment she was born, her estimated net value was higher than her brothers, despite him being the future king one day. Just like her mother, she is a fashion icon, which means she brings tons of cash for the fashion companies whose pieces she wears in public, a big plus for the UK economy.
How Much Is Princess Charlotte Net Worth?
The first report on the young royal came right after she was born in 2015 when CNN reported that she had a net worth of around $5 billion based on reports by Brand Finance. She is so influential that only four months after her birth she had her own thing, the “Charlotte Effect”, akin to her mother’s “Kate Effect” and her aunt’s “Meghan Effect”. That effect brought in $150 million in revenue for the country. An impressive feat for a four-month-old.
“The unofficial endorsement of Charlotte, George, and Kate, in particular, has a profound financial effect running into millions annually,” CEO David Haigh said at the time.
By Fall of 2018, her net worth was reported at $4.3 billion, according to Brand finance reports, while Reader’s Digest said that she was still above the 5 billion marks, but either way, she was still doing way better than her big brother George. This number is known to go up and down as she grows older, however, her influence is undeniable.
Compared to the future king of England, who had a net worth of an estimated $3.2 billion to $3.6 billion as of last year, according to Insider and Reader’s Digest, this puts Princess Charlotte as the clear winner when it comes to a sibling rivalry.
“These numbers are projections of what the royal children could bring the UK economy in their lifetimes, assuming they will continue to have the same positive effect,” Brand Finance Communications Manager Sehr Sarwar told Insider.
“The royal children have a positive impact on the sales of particular clothes and toys brands they wear or play with,” Haigh said in a statement in 2018. “In this sense, they have a very similar effect on brands as their mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, who has a real Midas touch . . . everything she touches turns into gold.”
All three of the Cambridge children have a staggering net worth, even though none of them is over the age of 10 yet. When Prince Louis, the youngest of the three, was born, the same day he was immediately estimated to add $70 million to the family’s net worth, so he’s kind of a big deal as well.
Their cousin, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first child, is doing pretty well as well, with him being estimated to bring in $65 million to $91 million in revenue based on baby souvenirs right after he was born. These numbers don’t include what he’s sure to bring in during the first few years of his life abroad, so the real number is hard to pinpoint but is sure to be high.
