Is The U.K New Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, Richer Than The Royals?

The current prime minister of the United Kingdom breaks many norms of the U.K politics. To begin with, the new prime minister of the United Kingdom was not born British. Instead, he hails from India. That is right! The subcontinent of India was once a colony of the British monarchy. Now, the tables have turned for British politics. The ones who were once ruled by the British Empire are now ruling them back. Colonialism backfiring? You bet!

The Verge / Indian-born politician breaks all the norms of British politics by becoming the prime minister of the United Kingdom.

However, this is just one tip of the iceberg when it comes to the career and lifestyle of the Indian-born British politician. Rishi Sunak is one of the wealthiest men in the United Kingdom. According to the latest analogy of Forbes, Rishi Sunak (the new prime minister of the U.K) is richer than the royals. Sounds too good to be true? Well, sit back as we elaborate on what the new prime minister of the U.K has been up to prior to holding the office.

According to the latest updates, Rishi Sunak has a staggering net worth of $840 million. On the other hand, the total net worth of Queen Elizabeth before her departure was only $420 million. Half of the total net worth of the Indian-born politician!

Sounds shocking? Well, there is more! Essentially, Brits are pretty familiar with wealthy elites ruling them. Think about the former prime minister, Borris Johnson. Sure enough! He was one of the richest PMs in the United Kingdom. And Rishi Sunak? Well, he is ultra-rich. Even richer than the British royalty.

Reports tell us that the new prime minister of the U.K was a banker before he became a member of the ruling of Great Britain. Similarly, his wife, Akshata Murty is the owner of a popular tech company in India. Together, their net worth was reported to be $8.4 million in October 2022.

Furthermore, reports also suggest that Rishi Sunak and his wife have many operational businesses – both in Downing Street, London, and India. Consequently, the total net worth of Rishi Sunak and his significant other is staggering. Now, they are one of the richest couples in England.

Thus, it is essential to note here that with the ‘power shift’ also comes a new trend as Rishi Sunak holds the office. That is, the flow of wealth is not in Bukhingam palace anymore. Instead, it is in Downing Street in London.

However, it is equally important to mention here that prior to holding his office, Rishi Sunak declared his total net worth and assets. Although this is for political purposes, it gives us a clear hint that the royal palace is not the abode of wealth anymore.
