How much is Queen Elizabeth worth?
The reigning Queen of 16 Commonwealth Nations, Queen Elizabeth has amassed a personal net worth of £ 60 billion which makes her the richest monarch on the planet. Owing to the complex nature of the properties owned by the members of royal families of the world, their exact net worth is difficult to evaluate.

She has been the Queen since her coronation in 1953. She is the oldest ruling monarch in the world and is also the longest living British monarch.
During her grandfather’s rule, Queen Elizabeth was the third person in the line of succession in the United Kingdom. Her father, George VI, was crowned king and she became the heir presumptive.

Her father died that year and Elizabeth was crowned the Queen on June 2, 1953 in Westminster Abbey.

As the Queen, she travelled to several countries around the world such as Australia, America, Nepal, Turkey, Germany and Iran. She announced her son, Prince of Wales, as her successor in 1969. In 1977, she celebrated the Silver Jubilee of her reign. Queen Elizabeth is the most influential royal figure in the world.
