#5 Yacht- The Queen still owns the now decommissioned HMY Britannia. However, it was taken out of service in 1997 and now serves as a part of a museum in Leith, Scotland. In her time, the ship travelled over million nautical miles around the globe. In the past 20 years, the Queen hasn’t had her own active ship, but that is set to change with plans for a new Britannia, at the cost of 100 million British pounds.
#4 Largest Private Art Collection- The Queen has some truly priceless pieces. Among her 7000, paintings, 30,000 watercolours and drawings and 500,000 prints. Some of her art is n public display at Hampton Court Palace, Winsor Castle and Holyrood house. Much of it is owned by the crown, but the queen does on swathes of t personally. Including, a vast collection left to her by her mother. Some of the works in her collection include pieces by Leonardo Devincci, Rembrandt and Van Dyke.
#3 Property- of course, the Queen’s main residence is Buckingham Palace, but she also personally owns Balmoral, a sprawling Scotish Mansion worth 150 million dollars. She also privately owns Sandringham, reportedly worth 65 million dollars and Gatcombe Park, priced in the low millions. On the top of that, she claims Buckingham Palace at 3billion dollars, as well as Kensington Palace.
#2 The Crown Jewels- Queen Elizabeth owns more than 300 items of jewellery including 98 brooches, 46 necklaces, 37 bracelets,34 pairs of earrings,15 rings, 14 watches and 5 pendants. She has been known to remark that when in full regalia, she looks like Christmas Tree. The most impressive of the crown jewels are the Burmese Ruby Tiara, The Vladimir Tiara also famously worn by late Princess Diana, The George the 6th sapphire Tiara and the Kokoshnik Tiara, which on its own worth half a million dollars.
#1 Land- The queen’s property is one thing, but her land is entirely another. this shocked me, but the queen is the biggest landowner in the world. She reportedly lays claims to 6.6 billion acres of land which is 1/6th of the world’s earth surface. This is because she lays claim to entire countries, although let’s be totally honest. Her ownership is pretty unenforceable. If you want to put the price tag on this amount of land, it comes in at around 33 trillion dollars.
