Princess Charlotte Is Only 2 and Already Worth Billions

The Duchess of Cambridge shared a photo of Charlotte taken in April to celebrate her second birthday. “The Duke and Duchess are very pleased to share this photograph as they celebrate Princess Charlotte’s second birthday,” the caption on the Instagram from @kensingtonroyal reads. “Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank everyone for all of the lovely messages they have received, and hope that everyone enjoys this photograph of Princess Charlotte as much as they do.” (Photo: @KensingtonRoyal/Instagram)

Like her mother, everything Princess Charlotte wears turns to gold. That’s why Brand Finance Group, a British valuation and strategy company, estimates her net worth at a whopping $4.1 billion.

The 2-year-old is reportedly worth more than her older brother, who is third in line to the throne. At 3, Prince George has an estimate net worth of $3.1 billion.

Brand Finance’s marketing and communications director Robert Haigh says there’s a simple explanation for the wage gap. “This is actually as simple as the relative size of the men’s and women’s fashion markets, by which I mean that Charlotte’s endorsement effect will likely be felt across a much broader range of products and brands or types of clothing than will George’s, allowing a greater scope for the monetization of her ‘brand’ and hence a higher value.”

Like the Duchess’s “Kate effect,” the little princess now lends to her own “Charlotte effect.” It became apparent moments after birth when the GH Hurt & Sons shawl she was wrapped in sold out in minutes.

The young royal still has a long way to go before she surpasses her mom. According to Brand Finance, the Duchess of Cambridge has a fashion influence worth a more than $6.1 billion.
