HOW MUCH WAS THE QUEEN WORTH WHEN SHE DIED?
By JACOB PITTS
On September 8, the BBC announced the death of Queen Elizabeth II at 96 years old; an official statement from the British royal family reads, "The queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon." Given her 70-year reign, the longest of any British monarch in history, one might wonder how much money the queen had amassed at the time of her death.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the queen was worth $600 million at the time of her death. While this is a staggering amount for the average person, there are many non-royals whose wealth eclipses it, and much of the British royal family's money actually does not belong to them in the form of personal wealth.
Queen Elizabeth's assets can be divided into two major categories: personal possessions, as well as the Crown Estate. While she didn't technically own the properties and artifacts that make up the Crown Estate, she was able to use and possess them during her reign; these assets include Buckingham Palace, the Crown Jewels, and Windsor Castle.
If the Crown Estate and other assets owned by the monarchy were included in the Queen's net worth, it would clock in at an impressive $28 billion. Her personal properties include Balmoral Castle in Scotland, the Sandringham House, and her hefty inheritance from her mother, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, who died in 2002.
