her personal wealth isn't that much as most of the palaces/crowns/estates etc belong to the crown not the person so probably if she did sell up and divvy it up we'd probably get a fiver each if we're lucky
Forbes said its estimates of the Queen's wealth included unspecified property in England and Scotland, fine art, gems and a stamp collection built by her grandfather George V. But much of the assets associated with the Queen are not her personal posessions.....................The true value of the Queen's private property, which includes Balmoral, Sandringham, a smaller collection of jewellery and some paintings has never been disclosed. She also derives a personal income of around £12.5million a year from the Duchy of Lancaster.
