Oh sure, the guards and the crowns and the corgis and the Harrys make it look like she's just swimming in money but take whatever number of pounds you thought the Queen of England had to her name and divide it by, I don't know 100, and that's how much she's worth. Really, she's honestly kind of a pauper! Bloomberg (the organization, not the guy, but probably him too) feels kind of poor just writing about her! Sends shivers down the spine! Ick! Gross! Sickening!

The 89-year-old’s estimated personal fortune, largely inherited from her family, is about $425 million, according to an analysis by the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. That’s a mere 3 percent of the wealth of the richest Briton, Gerald Grosvenor, the Duke of Westminster. Europe’s richest woman, Liliane Bettencourt, has a $32 billion fortune. “The Queen is a steward of the monarchy,” said Sally Bedell Smith, author of “Elizabeth the Queen,” a 2012 biography. “She’s not as rich as everyone thinks she is.”

Do you think Kate Middleton knows?
