Prince Charles’ Paintings Make Millions
Royal scion is one of the most successful living British artists.
The average fine artist in England sees an annual income of around $14,577 from their work. But not Prince Charles, whose somewhat generic watercolors rake in around $300,000 a year from print sales alone—he never sells the originals. In a nation obsessed with all things royal family, it’s easy to imagine throngs of fans salivating over salacious tabloids beneath a limited edition Prince Charles lithograph, even though they can come at the heady price of up to $17,000.
What does His Highness, who has a net worth of around $370 million, do with the earnings his artistic hobby brings in? He donates them to his own personal charity. Watch the video above for more information.
