Prince Harry's personal fortune of £25 million means he's currently richer than his elder brother William

The Queen's favourite grandchildren, Zara and Peter Phillips, were brought up to be thrifty by their mother, Princess Anne

 

The kindly Queen Mother has taken steps to secure the long-term financial future of Prince Harry. His great-granny has been making provision through various trusts and property to bridge a gap in wealth between Harry and his older brother William.

As a result of her generosity, a report by respected royal historian Philip Hall published last week in The Mail on Sunday shows that 17-year-old Prince Harry is worth £25 million- some £3 million more than his 19-year-old brother.

On the face of it, it is surprising that Harry’s worth exceeds William’s – but there’s a logical reason for it. William will, of course, one day be King and therefore inherit titles and land.

Harry’s financial status is not assured in the way that William’s has always been. His brother is set to become a billionaire upon inheriting the throne, just like his grandmother the Queen, but without the Queen Mother’s help, what would Harry have?
