Spain’s disgraced former king Juan Carlos sneaks into the top 10 richest royals list

FORMER King of Spain Juan Carlos has snuck into the top richest royals list in tenth place.

The disgraced former monarch has netted a huge wealth of over €2.3 billion, according to data by Buy Shares.

But this sum is dwarfed by the King of Thailand, Vajiralongkorn, who has a whopping €30billion as the world’s richest royal.

No UK monarchs have made the list, however the British royal household as a whole comes in 5th in the top 10 richest royal families.


It comes after Juan Carlos faces further financial corruption charges for bank accounts not held in his name.

It also reported that authorities have uncovered indications of a tax offence, as an undeclared €120,000 was transferred in a single transaction.   

And crucially, these financial transactions were carried out between 2016 and 2018, after Juan Carlos’ abdication in 2014, meaning that he no longer enjoys crown immunity.
