On Saturday, Charles legally ascended to the throne of Great Britain. Over the past fifty years, he has amassed a fortune in the billions of dollars.
Charles took a much more hands-on approach to creating the Duchy of Cornwall, a private estate, than his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
His portfolio's value and profits have climbed by almost 50% over the previous decade,
The modern-day Duchy of Cornwall is the proud owner of numerous properties, including the famous cricket stadium known as The Oval.
Fertile farmland in the south of England, seaside vacation rentals, central London office space, and a suburban supermarket distribution centre.
The 130,000-acre real estate portfolio is nearly the size of Chicago and generates millions of dollars every year in rental income.
