The UK’s Royal Family may be one of the most recognised in the world but it is far from the wealthiest, a new study has found. According to data compiled by Party Casino, the UK’s monarchy is estimated to be the fifth richest on the globe.
Billionaire Middle Eastern dynasties dwarf the House of Windsor’s net worth, according to new estimates.
Party Casino compiled data from a number of studies and articles to estimate the net worth of the world’s royal houses.
The study estimates the UK’s House of Windsor to be worth £68 billion putting it in fifth place.
While Saudi Arabia’s House of Suad came in at first place with an astronomical estimated net worth of £1 trillion.
While the Queen is estimated to be worth £464 million that seems like nothing compared to the world’s richest royal Vajiralongkorn, King of Thailand who is thought to be worth £23 billion.
