Prince Harry is about to get richer by £10 million thanks to an upcoming inheritance.

The young royal will receive £10 million when he turns 30 on September 15, 2014 - from his mother's inheritance.

According to The Sunday Times, a palace source said: "The inheritance is in line with what Prince William received when he turned 30." But Harry's share is expected to be a lot higher because of the accumulated interest over time.

"When Diana, Princess of Wales, died in Paris in 1997 her will stipulated that a share of her fortune should go to her William and Harry when they turned 25. However, the executors later decided to change the age to 30 - meaning Prince William received his money in June 2012," states an Express report.

As of now, Harry's primary sources of income are as follows:

  • Interest on his mother's fortune
  • £2m left to him by his great grandmother Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
  • Salary from the army of about £40,000 a year.

The prince is also in possession of some of Diana's jewellery, which was shared between him and Prince William.

The royal is known for spending lavishly on holidays and motorbikes. So, maybe he'll treat himself to a new set of wheels on his birthday.
