LIVING in a palace, being waited on hand and foot, and having access to a bulging bank account – there’s no denying if you’re a member of the Royal Family, there are many perks.
But while Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip have an estimated net worth of £510m, new research shows they’re far from the richest family in the world.
From Salma Hayek and Francois Pinault’s eye-watering £5.7billion net worth, to former A-list sweethearts Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s £526million, there are plenty of celeb couples who outshine the royals.And they know how to spend it – with the Kardashians famously splashing out millions on jewellery and luxury ranches.
Beyonce and Jay-Z, meanwhile, boast a £100m Bel Air, while J-Lo’s wealthy husband forked out £3.9m on an emerald cut diamond engagement ring.Here, we take a closer look at nine celeb families who are even more loaded than royalty, how they earned their fortune and what they splash their cash on…
Actress Salma Hayek’s net worth of £158 million is already impressive – but then add the wealth of her billionaire husband and father of her 12 year-old daughter and you’ve got one of the richest families in Hollywood, according to a recent rich list report.François-Henri Pinault might not be a household name in the same way his glamorous 53-year-old wife is, but the 58-year-old is CEO of luxury brand Kering, which owns the likes of Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen.
Some reports estimate his net worth could actually be anything up to £19.5bn, and the couple own a £20m two-bed townhouse in Chelsea, London and two art galleries in Paris.Pinault’s family also own Christie’s auction house and a 3,000 piece art collection.
The couple married in 2009 on Valentine’s Day in a wedding that is still considered one of the most expensive ever.A lavish masquerade-style rehearsal dinner was held at the 17th century Punta Della Dogana – which they don’t own, but spent £17million renovating ahead of the big day.
The glamorous two-day event is believed to have cost £2.6m, with Salma’s wedding dress being made by Balenciaga.The Kardashian-Wests
Net worth: £2.9 billion
One of the world’s biggest power couples, reality megastar Kim Kardashian, 39, and presidential candidate and rapper Kanye West, 43, are a force to be reckoned with.The pair both have a love for the finer things too, regularly taking private jets around the world, boast a £5.5m car collection and possess a multi-million pound jewellery stash.
However, £9m worth of jewellery was stolen in 2016 when Kim was infamously held at gunpoint in a French hotel room and robbed.
