The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren't short of a penny or two - but perhaps the royals aren't as rich a people believe.

The couple are jointly said to be worth in the region of £43 million, experts suggest.

A good haul, but not compared to the Queen, worth around £350m, it is reported.

Kate and William's overall value is still higher than that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - despite their decision to leave the UK allowing them to take on a number of money-spinning business opportunities.

The Duchess' personal net worth is estimated to be between £6m-£9m - a number loosely based on the value of her family's business.

Prince William, meanwhile, is reportedly valued in the region of £35m.

He owns the Augusta A109S Grand Helicopter, worth approximately £12 million - a gift from Queen Elizabeth.

Strictly speaking, Kate Middleton doesn't have any self-made wealth.

Her grandfather, Peter Middleton, was a pilot who left a £750,000 estate when he died.

Most of her expenses as a Royal Family member are funded by her father-in-law, Prince Charles.

Upon marrying into the family, she acquired millions through real estate and royal jewels.

Kate's favorite tiara, the Lover's Knot, also belonged to Princess Diana. It is estimated to be worth £3m alone.

The Duchess was previously involved in the business owned by her parents and despite tough economic times, Party Pieces is still valued in seven figures.

William, meanwhile, is reportedly worth between £32m-£35m.

According to Business Insider, much of his personal wealth is from an inheritance he came into on his 30th birthday.

He and brother Prince Harry reportedly received the same inheritance from Princess Diana’s trust - a share of around £16 million - along with most of her jewelry.

However, it has also been reported that Prince Harry received more than William from their great-grandmother, who died in 2002.

Republic CEO Graham Smith told Express.co.uk that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to cost the taxpayer £345million each year

He claimed: "It is about £345million from the taxpayer every year, it needs to be stripped right back.

"We do not owe Prince William and Kate an income, we do not owe them a role, we don’t owe them anything. They can go off and do their own thing."
