September 1, 2000
Did you know that the Queen of England is worth $4.9 billion? Before you start swearing, we’ll tell you that she’s actually not doing that well when you consider that she was once the richest woman in the world and she is now ranked at number 19. And she’s not even the richest royal! The prize for the richest royal gal goes to Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands who is worth $5.3 billion, according to a report on the world’s 200 richest women. The very top spot on the list goes to Helen Walton , 81, whose husband founded the Wal-Mart hyper-market chain. Her personal fortune amounts to $70 billion. Now you can start swearing.
