The Duke of Cambridge celebrates his 30th birthday today and stands to inherit an estimated 10 million pounds from a trust set up by his mother, Princess Diana.
Despite the extra income, officials say there won’t be any significant changes to William’s lifestyle.
A royal aide has confirmed the latter notion to the Daily Telegraph:
“Whatever the financial position might be, you will see no obvious change of lifestyle over the coming weeks or months,” said the aide.
“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, away from Anglesey, so the idea of a new house just isn’t on the radar at the moment.”
How did the Duke celebrate his special day? Predictably. Low-key and with close friends and family.
