The Queen mother was alive until 1994 until her tragic death that the entire world witnessed and mourned.

She earned a lot and after a tragic car accident, people were wondering how much money William and Harry would get as inheritance from their mother.

At this point, Prince of Wales is a person who always gets a part of the income from the Duchy of Cornwall. To be more precise, we are talking about 53K hectares of land that is distributed in 23 various counties. It should be noted that these estates are in a long tradition in the British Crown since their creation goes back to 1337 and King Edward II who created this so that a future king, i.e. his son, would have estates that would support the British family and generate an income of their own. According to the rule, these estates go to the eldest son and heir to the throne.
