UK’s wealthiest lose billions to pandemic, according to Sunday Times Rich List
The Sunday Times Rich List has just dropped and some big names have made the cut.
The annual survey estimates the wealthiest people in the UK and this year it features the King, the Prime Minister, and a handful of pop stars, as well as many business people you probably haven't heard of.
It found there are 171 billionaires in the UK — down from 177 in 2022 and that many people's fortunes have decreased. Sir Richard Branson’s fortune has shrunk by 42.6 per cent to £2.41 billion, for instance.
But that is still a lot of money, so we won't cry him a river.
