It’s not that difficult to learn who the UK’s richest men are. The net worth of Andy Murray, Daniel Radcliffe and Robert Pattinson are all well publicised but who are the highest earning British females?
It may be a man’s world when it comes to billionaires (until Bertarelli came along) but here are the top 10 richest females:
1. Kirsty Bertarelli £7.4 billion
The former Miss UK is now Britain’s richest woman and shares a £7.4billion fortune with her Swiss husband Ernesto, an America’s Cup-winning sailor.
2. J.K. Rowling £560 million
The British novelist was crowned ‘Britain’s Most Influential Woman’ in 2010 and her Potter books have become the best-selling book series in history.
3. The Queen £320 million
Her Majesty The Queen is the Head of State in the UK and 15 other Commonwealth realms. From her corgis and palaces to her extensive wardrobe, it’s fair to say she has a lot of money and power.
4. Sharon Osbourne £110 million
Behind every great man is an even better woman and the figure above speaks for itself.
5. Victoria Beckham £49 million
The Beckham brand is a global empire and the couple have built up a mighty big one. Amidst David’s football career, Victoria’s former singing days and her highly acclaimed fashion lines, the pair have accumulated an astonishing net worth.
6. Keira Knightley £31 million
The English actress made her first film debut in 1999 in “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” and 18 years later she is one of Britain’s best paid actresses.
7. Catherine Zeta Jones £28 million
The actress has definitely put Wales on the map and even though she probably rarely comes back to the UK, we’re still very proud of the Welsh beauty.
8. Emma Watson £26 million
She shot to fame playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series and now the starlet is a world renowned actress and model.
9. Leona Lewis £12.5 million
The 28-year-old won ITV’s X Factor 10 years ago and since then she has been nominated for seven Brit Awards and three Grammys.
10. Charlotte Church £9.3million
The Welsh singer songwriter shot to fame in her childhood and has sold more than 10 million records worldwide.
So there you have it; the top 10 highest earning women in the UK. Now, what you would buy if you earned that kind of money?
