18 Things Owned By Queen Elizabeth II that Will Blow You Mind
While most of her wealth comes from the royal family’s assets, she also has her fortune.
She inherited £5 million from her father, King George VI when she became queen in 1952.
She also receives an annual income from the Duchy of Lancaster, around £20 million.
The queen also has a valuable art collection and owns several racehorses. She also spends a large portion of her income on travel and security.
Despite her vast wealth, the queen is known for her frugality. She often re-wears clothes and doesn’t spend extravagantly on personal items.
While she is one of the richest people in the world, the queen’s wealth is a fraction of what it could be.
