Royal Upgrade – How Kate Middleton’s Wealth Will Rise Once Charles Becomes King

By all accounts, Kate Middleton did not marry Prince William and subsequently became the Duchess of Cambridge (and a bona fide princess) for money. It’s reasonable to believe most people don’t marry royalty these days for wealth. At least not for wealth alone. The pressures of being continually in the spotlight and having to abide by a long list of rules can be a high enough price to pay on their own. Nevertheless, a healthy bank account is an aspect of royalty that’s tough to ignore. Kate Middleton is currently wealthy, and she stands to gain even more once her father-in-law, Prince Charles, becomes king.

When exactly, that will happen remains to be seen. Now 93 years old and still in good health, Prince Charles’s mother, Queen Elizabeth II, is Britain’s longest-reigning monarch as well as the world’s longest-reigning living monarch. Although her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, retired from his royal duties in 2017, she has shown no signs of abdicating the throne. Her public approval remains high, and there is reason to believe that she will continue her reign until her death. Only then will Prince Charles become king.
