Prince William Gets Birthday Gift From His Late Mother, Princess Diana
Prince William turned 30 on Thursday, and that means he gets his inheritance from his mother who was killed in a tragic car accident in 1997.
At the time of her death, William was only 15-years-old. Diana established a trust in her will for her two sons. The trust is now valued at $31 Million and Prince William will get $14 Million now that he is of age to take control of his portion. Prince Harry will get his half when he turns 30 on September 15th, 2014.
What will Prince William spend the money on? Some sources say he was planning on building a home for him and his wife, Catherine, but that may not be the story.
“There has been speculation about the duke and duchess having a house built but there are no plans for that at all . . . If the duke decides next year to continue his search and rescue career he might well have to move to another base . . . so the idea of a new house just isn’t on the radar at the moment.”
One may one to think of it as an awesome gift, it’s sad that he is receiving the trust because his mother isn’t here. I have full faith in that the money will be put to good use. His mother was all about giving back and he seems to be the same way. I am sure Diana is looking down and would be very proud of her son.
