Life as a Disney Princess isn’t always easy, despite the flowing locks, castles and massive frocks. With evil queens to deal with and dashing princes to woo, it’s realistically a little more complicated than they let on - and that’s before we’ve even gone into their financial woes.
Luckily, Virgin Money have done all of their budgeting for for them, working out their assets and total worths in ascending order.
Job: Daughter of Chief Powhatan, Member of the Powhatan Tribe
Assets/Income: Until John Smith came along, free spirited Pocahontas didn’t know the meaning of money - namely because she seemingly had none. Painting all the Colours Of The Wind can only get you so far, Pochy.
Total worth: £0 (on the plus side, she’s got no outgoings)
Job: Solider in Chinese Army
Assets/Income: A Chinese soldier’s wage would be around £490 a month while her living costs would be covered by the army. Gifted with Shan Yu’s sword, Mulan can add an extra £1646 to her assets. We hear eBay calling.
Total worth: £7526
Job: Scullery Maid
Assets/Income: A real rags to riches story. As a scullery maid Cinders has the potential to make a modest £15k a year. Thank goodness then for her Fairy Godmother, whose makeover, ball gown and glass slippers boost her assets by £19,045.
Total worth: £34,045
8. Snow White
Assets/Income: She may be the fairest but she’s certainly not the richest. Being a live-in-maid for seven dwarves comes with an annual salary of £36,000, not too shabby considering she did it for free when she lived in with the wicked Queen.
Total worth: £36,000
Assets/Income: The most ambitious and entrepreneurial of all the princesses, Tiana runs her own restaurant. And for good reason – she has no chance of an inheritance.
Total worth: £47,000
Assets/Income: Living under the sea means Ariel can avoid water, gas and electricity bills. She’s also a dab hand at collecting valuables, including silver candlestick holders, first edition books, and other antiques, which could make her some serious money. Again, eBay calls.
Total worth: £50,146
Assets/Income: Amounting a vast array of jewellery worth around £748,000 from admirers over the years, Belle has some quite a bit of cash to splash. A big fan of a good book, Belle spends 12 hours a day reading meaning her annual spend on literature would be around £1244.
Total worth: £746,756
Assets/Income: Turns out, Maleficent did this Princess a HUGE favour. Assuming an average interest rate of 3% on an investment left to Aurora by her parents of £100,000, the princess not only woke up to the man of her dreams, but also a cool £1,921,863.
Total worth: £1,921,863
Assets/Income: Rather than follow the conventional journey of a Scottish princess, Merida refuses to be betrothed and becomes an expert archer. Merida would certainly have won Gold at the Olympics, earning her £8,860, with public appearances and brand endorsement deals bringing in an extra £3 million a year.
Total worth: £3,008,860
Assets/Income: With hair that is far from weak, limp, and lifeless Rapunzel would no doubt have be snapped up by L’Oreal, earning her around £12 million. At 70 ft in length, Rapunzel’s hair would also make £8,100 worth of hair extensions.
Total worth: £12,008,100
Job: Daughter of the Sultan of Agrabah
Assets/Income: Well who else? Jasmine is due an inheritance from her father worth around £15 billion. She may have married for love but this doesn’t mean Jasmine hasn’t got expensive taste. Rajah, her pet tiger, would have set her back £10k with an additional £4,755 each year to look after him.
Total worth: £15 billion give or take a few grand.
