A lot has changed for Prince William with the death of Queen Elizabeth.
The death of Queen Elizabeth II († 96) means a big change for her grandson, Prince William (40). As the direct heir to the throne, he takes on other tasks within the royal family. Among other things, he is the new Duke of Cornwall – a title he inherited from his father, King Charles (73). There are also other representative tasks such as a speech at the Earthshot Climate Prize in New York.
His new role aims to prepare the prince for his future as king. There is already a royal reward for this.
Million revenue from duchy
According to “Bild”, William will share in the income of the Duchy of Cornwall, which includes 53,000 hectares of land with arable and livestock farms, residential and commercial properties, forests, rivers, quarries and coasts. According to the annual report, King Charles’ income from this last year was around 23 million francs.
With his share, Prince William has to pay for the private and professional costs of his family. (bnr)
