Who are the wealthiest kids in the world?
Many of us grew up with the luxuries of new toys and even received our own pocket money, saving for weeks and months to buy the next best gadget to boast about with friends.
But for those with Hollywood stars as parents, it's a different ballgame. Celebrity kids won’t likely have to spend too long to save for anything and could easily splash out on the next big playhouse or climbing frame without thinking about the cost.
We have analysed some of the most famous kids in the world (who most likely have astronomical sums tucked away for their future) to reveal the wealthiest kids with the biggest fortunes in 2024. We’ll examine various celebrity categories, including YouTube stars, A-listers and royalty.
The Richest Celebrity Children in 2024
Princess Charlotte of Wales is the richest celebrity child, with a net worth of almost £4 BILLION.1. Princess Charlotte of Wales - 8 years old
Estimated Net Worth in 2024: £3.9 billion
The “Kate Middleton Effect” has contributed to Princess Charlotte's net worth, where the royal family's fashion choices significantly impact fashion trends. Eight-year-old Charlotte is the wealthiest royal grandchild and the richest child in the world, with an estimated net worth of £3.9 billion ($5 billion).
Most fashion pieces that the Duchess of Cambridge is seen in subsequently fly off the shelves, and ‘the Kate effect’ was even coined to describe the impact she had on fashion brands after being photographed in their items. Sales for the British fashion industry are enormous, boosting British brands upwards of £1 billion annually. Research from Brand Finance cited Kate as “the most powerful royal fashion influencer” and reported that pieces Kate wears increase desirability by 38 percent for American shoppers.
As part of the affluent and influential royal lineage, Princess Charlotte is extremely privileged and has access to substantial wealth, including inheritances, investments and even business ventures. As Charlotte gets older, there’s no doubt that the world will be watching what a teenage royal and twenty-something royal is wearing, and the “Princess Charlotte effect’ will only intensify.2. Prince George of Wales - 10 years old
Estimated Net Worth in 2024: £2.8 billion
Charlotte’s older brother, ten-year-old Prince George of Wales, placed second in the race for the richest kids, with a net worth of £2.8 billion ($3.6 billion). As the second line to the throne behind his father, Prince William of Wales, George has a big role to fill in his future. Although he may look like an ordinary ten-year-old who enjoys sports and whose favourite meal is a spaghetti carbonara, there’s no denying that Prince George was born into wealth.
On George’s fifth birthday, his grandfather, King Charles III, reportedly gifted him an £18,000 present and his royal title when Prince William was announced the king. As George still has a few more years left at boarding school, he already appears to be generating money for the royal family. Prince George is hugely wealthy as he inherited 133,000 acres of land across 23 counties in the UK when he was born.3. Rza Athelston Mayers - 1-year-old
Estimated Net Worth in 2024: £943.5 million
After five months of keeping it secret, Rihanna’s pregnancy shocked fans when she revealed her bare baby bump in a photoshoot. Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s son’s name was only confirmed a year after his birth when it was revealed as Rza Athelston Mayers. Last year, Rihanna spoke about her protectiveness of her son’s privacy after photos of Rza were leaked to the press.
The A-list infant is only one but has already amassed an impressive net worth of £943.5 million ($1.2 billion). Rza’s whopping fortune was primarily influenced by his mother, whose net worth now stands at £1.4 billion thanks to her popular Fenty beauty line and her Savage X Fenty lingerie empire, according to Forbes. The total also factors in the money from Rza’s father, A$AP Rocky, who has made millions from his lucrative rap and fashion career. A$AP Rocky’s net worth is $20 million, making their collective income approximately £1.5 billion, and their offspring can likely have anything they’ll ever want.
Rihanna and Rocky also welcomed their second child, son Riot Rose Mayers, in August 2023. Riot Rose is only five months old and doesn’t have a net worth yet, but despite his tender age, he is already renowned for being Rihanna's son.
The Richest A-List Celebrity Kids
Rza Athelston Mayers is the richest A-List celebrity child, with a net worth of nearly £943.5 million.
When your parents are some of the most popular musicians in the 21st century, you’re likely to prosper and potentially be more successful. These celebrity children are destined for greatness, thanks to their parents’ fortune.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s son Rza came out top, as the musical duo are two of the most successful artists in the music industry. With a net worth of £943.4 million ($1.2 billion), which is only expected to rise as he grows up, Rza Athelston Mayers takes first place.
Beyonce and Jay Z’s oldest daughter, Blue Ivy Carter placed second in the running, with a net worth of £567.9 million. The twelve-year-old was dubbed “the most famous baby in the world” by TIME magazine just two days after her birth in 2012.
Kylie Jenner’s five-year-old daughter Stormi Webster placed third, with a net worth of £449.6 million. The firstborn child of Kylie Jenner and rapper Travis Scott has firmly established herself among the globe's wealthiest celebrity offspring. After Kylie posted her first picture of newborn Stormi to Instagram, it broke an Instagram record for likes when it eclipsed 13 million.
