The Queen of England has fallen to 12th place on Forbes’ list of the world’s richest royals
The Queen of England – she has fallen to 12th place on Forbes’ list of the world’s richest royals. The value of her London residence, Buckingham Palace, had fallen by a whopping $100 million thanks to declining property values.
Now Elizabeth II is suffering the added indignity of languishing on the rich list, as her measly $650 million fortune puts her well behind the UAE’s oil-rich rulers.In the No. 1 spot for the first time is King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, with a net worth of $35 billion, who apparently shot up the list as a result of admitting he was richer than previously thought.
At No. 2 is Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, president of the UAE and hereditary ruler of Abu Dhabi, with a net worth of $23 billion. No. 3 is King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia, worth $21 billion. And Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, ruler of Dubai, clocks in at No. 5 with $18 billion.
