The British Royal Family leads a fairytale life, or what it looks like, for the public.
They have the best clothes, the best houses, the best vacations and servants galore.
Though they may have 99 other issues including: Prince Andrew’s Recent Sex Abuse Scandal and Prince Harry and Megan Markle cutting ties with the family, money is certainly not a concern for them.
The royal family has ruled England for some 1,200 years and one cannot help but wonder how much longer the British are willing to pay for the royal family’s extravagant lifestyle.
According to the international research data and analysis group, You Governmenta fifth of Britons support the idea of abolishing the monarchy.
The data showed that 41% of 18-24 year-olds think Britain should have an elected head of state, and only 31% want the monarchy to continue.
With support for the royal family dwindling, experts from WellBoxtook it upon themselves to examine how well the British Royal Family would fare if they had to survive in today’s job market and rely on their university degrees to support themselves.
Here are the six royals who would earn the most money based on their college degree:
First up is Prince William who, if he had had to use his MA degree in geography alone to earn a living, would have had the potential to earn £115,000 (R2,269,912.24) a year if he a commercial surveyor or environmental consultant.
However, most geography graduates earn an average annual salary of £50,000 (R986 853.56) per year.
Princess Eugenie, the second child of the Duke of York and Sarah Ferguson, would have been wealthier than both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle had she not been born royalty.
Princess Eugenie has a BA in English Literature, Politics and Art History.
Potential jobs for her include archivist or art gallery director, which would have earned her a potential £60,000+ (R1,183 087.23) a year.
Princess Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in October 2018 and she currently works full-time as a director at Hauser & Wirth art gallery.
Meghan Markle, who married Prince Harry on May 19, 2018, graduated from Northwestern University with a BA in theater and international relations.
As an international aid worker or theater stage manager, Meghan could have made up to £50,000 ((R986 853.56) a year, but had instead pursued an acting career where she reportedly made £350,000 (R6 907 183,81) a year – double that. of the potential salary of her brother-in-law, Prince William.
Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge
Kate Middleton, hot on her sister-in-law, who became the Duchess of Cambridge after marrying Prince William on April 29, 2011, could have made her fortune as an art heritage manager or custodian – earning up to £70,000 (R1 379 455, 19) per annum, but with an average annual salary of £30,000 (R591 254.40) for more entry-level positions.
According to a statement from Journalism.orgit would take the Duchess 143 years to make this fortune based on her college degree alone.
Princess Beatrice, who is tenth in line to the British throne, has a BA in History and History of Ideas. As an inspector of historic buildings or a history teacher, she might have made £60,000 (R1 183 6422.20) had her father not been Prince Andrew, Duke of York.
Surprisingly, Prince Charles, who is first in line to the British throne to succeed his mother Queen Elizabeth II and the royal family with the highest estimated net worth on the list at £400 million, would receive the lowest salary based on his university degree.
If Prince Charles were not a future king, he could have become an archaeologist or community development worker with an average annual salary of £22,000 (R434 172.95) a year – or £41,000 (R809 140.50) at the highest point, but it would took him nearly 10,000 years to match his estimated net worth.
