Earl of Wessex
Born Edward Antony Richard Louis has an estimated net worth of $45 million. Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex is the third son and fourth and youngest child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
He has inherited his net worth from his parents as well as from his work as a theater producer and from his own TV production company.
His official duties included replacing his father as President of the Commonwealth Games Federation and opening the 1990 Commonwealth Games in New Zealand and the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Malaysia among others.
A History graduate from the University of Cambridge, Edward was initially educated in schools in Ascot and Scotland, just like his two brothers. His disinterest in army life made him resign from “Royal Marines” and he joined a theatrical productions company, which was his area of curiosity. He established the “Ardent Television Company” and started making documentaries regarding the Royal Family, but later stepped down from the role to focus on his royal responsibilities. He married Public relations officer “Sophie Rhys-Jones” at Windsor Castle in 1999 and has two children - Lady Louise Windsor and James Viscount Severn.
