THE Queen’s income is set to increase by eight per cent from £76million in 2017-18 to £82.2million the following year. So how has Her Majesty made her incredible fortune and what's our head of state's net worth? What is Queen Elizabeth II’s net worth? Forbes has estimated the Queen’s private net worth at around £415million. This cash comes mostly from the Duchy of Lancaster which is made up of 18,454 hectares of land in England and Wales.
