The Royal Family has a history of failed marriages, so could a Royal prenup be in the cards for William and Kate?
London Family Law Solicitor Louise Liu speculates that Prince William is worth a staggering 45 million dollars, estimating that that number will increase as his marriage progresses.
Interestingly enough, three of Queen Elizabeth's four children have been divorced -- all reportedly without a prenup.
Princess Diana and Prince Charles divorced in August of 1996. Prince Andrew, The Duke of York, and Sarah Ferguson split three months earlier in the same year. In 1992, Princess Anne and Mark Phillips divorced.
Prince William's mother Princess Diana reportedly received the biggest payout. Liu estimates Diana received a lump sum nearing 27 million dollars with another half million each year in income. Her title was also changed from Her Royal Highness to Diana, Princess of Wales.
Liu says that she doubts Prince William was encouraged to get a prenup with Kate, because the concept of prenuptial agreements, while common in the U.S., is relatively new to England. According to Liu, a prenuptial agreement is persuasive but not legally binding at the moment.
However, if the newlyweds decide to break Royal tradition, Liu says Kate could end up with a lot of cash. "I imagine if William and Kate had a prenup she would at least get a substantial lump sum, housing for herself and provision for any children that they have as well as provision for security. Let's not forget the paparazzi are now surrounding her just from before they were engaged."
