In a light-hearted moment at the Hideaway Youth Project in Manchester, England, 11-year-old Amir Hassan took the opportunity to inquire about Prince William’s financial standing.
The curious youngster surprised the future king with a direct question, asking, “How much do you have in your bank account?” as reported by the Telegraph.
Amid the children’s art project, which involved creating empowering hairstyles from magazine cutouts, Prince William, initially taken aback, burst into laughter before candidly admitting that he didn’t know the answer.
The royal engagement took a humorous turn as the kids, inviting William to join in their creative endeavor, received a witty response: “I’m literally the last person you should ask. My hair is disappearing.”
The incident shed light on the royal family’s adherence to a no-cash protocol, citing security reasons, with Queen Elizabeth II being an exception, known to carry bills for church donations.
As King Charles ascended to the throne, Prince William inherited the Duchy of Cornwall, valued at approximately $1.3 billion, consisting of farmland, property, and commercial enterprises.
Established by King Edward III in 1337, the Duchy serves to provide income to the heir to the throne.
Reflecting on his future role, Prince William shared in the documentary “Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall” that he plans to continue in his father’s footsteps.
With a touch of humor, he assured farmers, “I’m not so into the architecture—that’s the only thing I’ll do much the same as what my father’s doing.”
