Robert Pattinson Richer Than Prince William & Prince Harry: New British Rich List Under 30!

Rob is the ‘eighth wealthiest Briton under 30′ while Prince William and Prince Harry didn’t even make the top 10 — are you shocked?

Robert Pattinson‘s hard work is paying off — literally! Britain’s Sunday Times released their “Rich List” and the 24-year-old Breaking Dawn star was named the “8th wealthiest Briton” with an estimated personal net worth of $52 million! William, the newly entitled Duke of Cambridge, 28, and his little brother Prince Harry, 26, trailed at number 11 with the princely sum of $45 million. And it doesn’t take a wizard to figure out who beat out all these boys. Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, 21, beat out R-Patz with a total net worth of $78 million. (All these have been adjusted from their equivalents in British pounds.) Daniel’s co-stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint tied in 13th place with an impressive $39 million!

In case you were wondering how William and Harry made their money, this figure comes from the estimated amount that their late mother Princess Diana left them when she died in 1998, along with their land ownership.

Rob has had one of the busiest years of his life and it’s clear he shouldn’t stop now! In the past 21 days Rob has been on 9 planes and has been to six countries promoting his new flick Water For Elephants. But if it’s putting this kind of dough in his pockets, who cares if he’s a bit sleepy?!
