Prince Philip

Prince Philip is one of the only 97-year-olds out there that still makes over half a million per year. The prince gets paid just for having his title, despite not becoming the king at any point in his lifetime. Most of the duties that Prince Philip carries out are for the queen's wellbeing and professional life, so basically, Prince Philip is one of the highest-paid consultants that has ever lived. Prince Philip is worth roughly $20 million, but with his wealth combined with his royal wife, he's probably worth a lot more.
