Princess Eugenie's Net Worth is Almost the Same as Meghan Markle's

It's no secret that members of the royal family are doing well for themselves—their collective net worth is estimated around the $88 billion mark according to Forbes, with Prince Harry and Prince William accounting for approximately $40 million each. But what about the latest royal to have captured the public's imagination?

Princess Eugenie is a well-known figure in the U.K., but the third of the Queen's four granddaughters began to garner increased attention in America earlier this year after the announcement of her engagement to her longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank. Brooksbank proposed in January while on a trip to Nicaragua and the couple are slated to wed on October 12 in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, the same church that played host to her cousin Harry and Meghan's big day.

A wedding venue isn't the only thing that Eugenie shares with her new cousin-in-law either; in fact, the Princess's net worth is almost identical to Meghan's pre-wedding net worth, at a cool $4.8 million.

As you might expect, most of that money is thought to have comes to Eugenie via her grandmother the Queen and great-grandmother the Queen Mother, primarily in the form of trust funds. She also reportedly benefits from a substantial trust that was set up as part of the high-publicized divorce of her parents, Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson.

Not all of Eugenie's earnings come from family, though. When you think of the royal family, a 9-to-5 job may not be front and center, but Eugenie has been a dedicated career girl (another thing she and Meghan have in common) since she graduated from Newcastle University in 2013 with degrees in art history and English literature. She spent two years working in New York as a specialist at the online auction house Paddle8, during which she and Brooksbank maintained a long-distance relationship, and currently works in London as an associate director of Hauser & Wirth, a contemporary art gallery.
