Prince Andrew is the Queen’s third child and a working member of the Royal Family. He was married to Sarah Ferguson, 59, for ten years before they officially divorced in 1996. The pair have two children together, Princess Beatrice, 31, and Princess Eugenie, 29. He has also worked for the royal forces and managed to build up an eye-watering fortune.
Prince Andrew net worth
The royal has the astounding net worth of £57million, according to The Sun.
What’s more, this staggering fortune reportedly makes him the third richest royal, only behind Prince Charles and the Queen herself.
How has he made such a huge fortune?
Before he dedicated himself to the Crown, Prince Andrew worked in the forces and joined the Royal Navy in 1978.
He worked as a midshipman before being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in 1984.
The royal also worked as flight commander and pilot before retiring in 2001.
After retiring, Andrew landed the job of UK Special Representative for Trade and Investment.
However, that isn’t the only way the royal has topped up his bank account over the years.
He is reportedly given a tax-free payment from the Queen each year to fund his private office, to the sum of £249,000.
On top of that, the Queen’s son is said to receive a hefty £20,000 naval pension.
Andrew is also the owner of a collection of enviable properties, including the Royal Lodge in Windsor.
The royal splashed his cash and spent £7.5million refurbishing the property, Norman Baker, a former Lib Dem MP, recently told the Mail on Sunday.
Norman also claimed Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, forked out £13million for a ski chalet in Switzerland.
Speaking in 2011, Sarah told The Telegraph Prince Andrew had helped her with money, showing his wealth again.
Andrew’s daughter, Princess Beatrice, has a huge net worth of her own and has reportedly made £3.8million.
