Prince William Turns 30, Can Collect Trust Left By Princess Diana Worth Over $15 Million
As if he wasn’t already rich enough… Prince William can collect a huge trust left by his late mother today, on his 30th Birthday!
Britain’s Prince William celebrates his 30th birthday Thursday, triggering a clause in his late mother Diana’s will that could see him inherit more than £10 million ($15.7 million).
When Diana died in 1997, she left a trust — worth £12.9 million at that stage — to her two sons, then aged 15 and 12, The (London) Times reported.
Its value has since grown and it is believed to be now worth more than £20 million. Prince Harry’s share will be available to him on September 15, 2014.
Speculation that William and wife Catherine — the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — may use the money to buy a country house has been dampened by suggestions he is about to sign up for another tour with the Royal Air Force’s Search and Rescue team, AFP reported.
“There has been speculation about the duke and duchess having a house built but there are no plans for that at all,” a royal aide told the Daily Telegraph. “If the duke decides next year to continue his search and rescue career he might well have to move to another base … so the idea of a new house just isn’t on the radar at the moment.”
William and Catherine, who married last year, are expected to celebrate his milestone with friends before returning to their rented farmhouse on Anglesey, an island off the north west coast of Wales.
