13 Million More Reasons

Chicks Wanna Serve

the Prince

6/21/2007 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Prince WilliamThe future ruler of the British Empire turned 25 today, but who gives a rat's arse about his age when, just like that, Prince William is loaded!

That's because Wills, upon crossing the 25-year-old threshold, gets the $13 million his mother Princess Diana left him in her will, plus interest and "other income accrued," according to reports. That translates into about $500,000 to $600,000 per year, on top of the reported $44,000 he makes from being a second lieutenant in the British Army.

And then, of course, there's his expense account, which his dad, Prince Charles, takes care of -- though sources who knew Wills in high school at Eton tell TMZ that he never ever had spending money, and that his subjects/pals had to fork over cash for everything.

We'd love to hear Wills' granny -- you know, the Queen -- trash-talking him today as he blows out the candles over his relatively paltry take. After all, she gets around $10 million per year in salary, and her net worth, according to Forbes, is about $500 million.

Does he have a cocaine problem? Why is he yanking on his nose so hard?

And my goodness, for someone who was such a cute child, he has become horrendous. Looks just like his father. And Harry, who was such a homely child, is definitely bang-a-licous!

Happy Birthday, Prince William!

May all your dreams come true....

I, too, saw Prince William and Prince Harry via Matt Lauer's interview....Princess Diana, obviously, gave them a lot of LOVE to ensure they turned out this magnificently. You can tell they are great friends, respectful of each other, and they speak so profoundly. It goes without saying they LOVE their Mother as they think daily of her! Even those of us who do not approval of "royalty", opened our hearts wide on behalf of Princess Diana and her two exquisite little boys who are now all grown-up. Love and Best Wishes to Prince William and Prince Harry (such eloquent and handsome young men)!!

Actually, Wills only gets access to the *interest* on his half of the inheritance. He can't touch the capital until he turns 30.
