Both women are the same age, 36 years old, but came from very different backgrounds.
So, between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, who is worth more?
What is Meghan Markle net worth?
Prince Harry’s fiancee acted in US TV drama Suits, starring in the role of sexy paralegal Rachel Zane.
While her career was starting out she worked as a freelance calligrapher, and when her acting work took off, she also did humanitarian work and ran a lifestyle blog called The Tig.
Meghan made approximately £36,920 for each episode of Suits and has an estimated net worth of around £3.7million ($5million), according to celebritynetworth.com
She’s also starred in movies such as Horrible Bosses, Dysfunctional Friends, A Lot Like Love, and Remember Me.
36-year-old Meghan Markle met Prince Harry back in 2016 after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend.
After dating for 15 months, Harry, who is fifth in line for the throne, proposed during a quiet night in at Nottingham Cottage, the royal residence he calls home on the grounds of Kensington Palace.
Markle and Harry are already living together at Nottingham Cottage.
Prince Harry’s net worth far exceeds his fiancée’s, but Markle made a good living as an actress.
What is Kate Middleton net worth?
Despite Meghan’s whopping personal fortune, Kate Middleton’s net worth is currently double the Meghan Markle’s net worth, at £7.3million.
Much of Kate Middleton’s wealth comes from her family’s Party Pieces business, which is worth a cool £36.2million.
Kate met Prince William when she was studying Art History at St Andrews University.
After graduating she worked at her parents’ business Party Pieces, and worked as a part-time buyer for Jigsaw for six months.
Although dubbed commoners, Kate’s parents Michael and Carole are self-made millionaires thanks to their business.
They live in a £6million mansion in Bucklebury and also own a flat in Chelsea, where their children have lived while in London.
Kate Middleton’s wealth increased after she joined the royal family, with her staff and wardrobe costs being paid for by Prince Charles’s private estate and the Duchy of Cornwall.
Kate Middleton’s travel is often being paid for by hosting countries, so the majority of her fortune remains unspent.
While Kate’s amount is large in comparison to Prince Harry’s fiancée, it is significantly less than her husband Prince William’s net worth of £29.6million.
Forbes has estimated the Queen’s private net worth at around £415million. Real estate and land ownership all contribute towards the monarch’s fortune.
The Queen’s impressive property portfolio boasts both Sandringham House and Balmoral Castle.
It was previously revealed that Prince Harry is unlikely to share his fortune with Meghan Markle even after they’ve got married – because she’d be stung by American income tax.
