Princess Eugenie, daughter of Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew, has a net worth that has been the subject of controversy.
The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth does not have an active job in the monarchy, so she does not receive the Sovereign Grant that other members of the family such as Prince William or Princess Anne do.
However, the income of Prince Andrew’s daughter has raised doubts and some controversy.
Princess Eugenie’s Net Worth
According to the website Celebrity Net Worth, Princess Eugenie’s fortune is estimated at one million dollars, a figure considered low compared to expectations for a royal.
Her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, was known to be one of the richest monarchs in the world, with a fortune estimated at $600 million.
However, Marie Claire magazine has revealed that the princess has a fortune of about $4.8 million.
This sum comes from a trust set up by the Queen Mother on behalf of her great-grandchildren.
The princess is also the beneficiary of a trust fund set up by her mother, Sarah Ferguson.
Part of the money Fergie received in her divorce from Prince Andrew was earmarked for her daughters’ future.
What does Princess Eugenie do for a living?
Despite her royal lineage, Princess Eugenie is not an active worker in the British monarchy and has had to work to finance her expenses.
After graduating from Newcastle University, she spent a year in New York City working for the online auction company Paddle8.
She then returned to London in 2015 and began working at the prestigious art gallery Hauser & Wirth, where she eventually became a director in 2017.
Although her exact salary is unknown, it is estimated that a senior position at the company can pay around $270,000 a year, plus additional benefits such as shares, commissions and bonuses.
Princess Eugenie’s husband’s job
On the other hand, her husband, Jack Brooksbank, works for Discovery Land Company (DLC), according to Town&Country magazine.
This real estate development company is owned by Mike Meldman, who was George Clooney’s partner in the Casamigos tequila brand. Jack has been an ambassador for the brand for many years.
Due to his work at DLS, Jack’s family splits their time between the UK and Portugal.
Although Princess Eugenie’s net worth may be considered lower than that of other royals, her work in the art world and her husband’s work in real estate development provide them with a solid enough financial base to support themselves and their two children.
