Prince Harry

Like any good royal, Harry is a member of the military and currently serves as a staff officer in the position of SO3 (Defence Engagement) in London, where he is known as "Captain Wales." Before that, Harry spent three years in training and operational service with the Apache helicopter force during his attachment to the Army Air Corps. While in the Army Air Corps, Harry reportedly received a salary of $60,000, but it is not known how much he earns in his new position. He has served two tours in Afghanistan — one in 2007 and another in 2012. After leaving his helicopter pilot position, Harry also launched the Invictus Games, a Paralympics event designed for servicemen and women. The prince said he was inspired to start the event after visiting the Warrior Games in the US back in 2013. In addition to the Invictus Games, Harry also serves as a patron to various charities, including Sentebale, which he cofounded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, and his official charity, which he manages with Prince William and Kate.

Aside from his military and charity duties, Harry's main job is being a prince. Like for William and Kate, all expenses related to Harry's official duties are paid for by the taxpayers. When he turns 30 later this year, he will receive his half of his inheritance from Princess Diana, which is rumored to be valued at about $17 million. (This is up nearly $7 million from William's reported inheritance, and the increase is mostly due to sound investments from the administrators of Diana's estate.) Despite inheriting a big chunk of money, Harry will likely not blow it on anything extravagant, as he lives a pretty modest lifestyle. In 2012, he traded his apartment at his father's home, Clarence House, for a modest staff apartment in Kensington Palace.
