In 2017 it looked like the monarch’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (May 25) that Queen Margrethe II of Denmark is the highest-paid monarch in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between April 2019 and April 2020, a nearly $50 million lead over her closest competition.

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The Danish monarch has an estimated net worth of $245 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Queen Margrethe II of Denmark Burger” chain) in Copenhagen, a Football Team (the “Copenhagen Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderqueen Margrethe II of Denmark - Denmark), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Margrethe) and a fashion line called “Queen Margrethe II of Denmark Seduction”.
