The Royal Family’s Most Expensive Possessions

Megan and Harry have decided to leave the ranks of the royal family, which to us seems absolutely crazy because they’re leaving so much stuff behind. And by stuff, we mean expensive stuff. Although, one could argue that privacy and stability are more important than stuff, but then again, look at all this stuff!

Royals own some pretty incredible things, ranging from palatial estates to rare gemstones to sports teams. Check out some incredibly expensive items some of the world’s queens, princes, and sheiks have in their possession.

Queen Elizabeth II is quite the art collector. Thirteen royal homes in the United Kingdom contain pieces from her collection, which includes over 500,000 prints, 30,000 watercolors, and 7,000 paintings. Some of the artwork she owns is also housed in museums across the UK.

The queen’s collection features a lot of portraits, including those of late members of the royal family. Queen Elizabeth II has official portraits of King Henry VIII, King George V, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth.
