Caroline Fleming Net Worth

By Suren Prasad

Businesswoman and cookbook author, aka the “TV baroness”, Danish royalty Caroline Fleming boasts a humongous net worth of around £280 million.

Born on September 9, 1975 to Baroness Margaretha and Baron Niels Krabbe Juel-Brockdorff, Caroline Elizabeth Ada Juel-Brockdorff was raised in Valdemar’s Castle, on Tåsinge island, in Denmark’s Funen Archipelago.

Did Fleming use her royal status to earn her millions or did she start her own ventures?

A member of one of the oldest families in Denmark, Caroline Fleming relinquished her title of Baroness when she married the scion of England’s fourth richest family and author Ian Fleming’s (of James Bond fame) nephew Rory Fleming in October 2001. After the birth of a boy, Alexander William (2004), and girl, Josephine Margaretha Victoria (2006), the couple divorced in 2008. According to British tabloid Daily Express, the split proved to be a £400 million windfall for Caroline, holder of Valdemar Castle (2003-2011).

Fleming then gave birth to a son Nicholas in 2011, from a relationship with Danish and ex-Arsenal footballer Nicklas Bendtner.

No greenhorn to being seen on the TV screen, she had her own reality show in Denmark in the form of The Baroness Moves In and also hosted seasons 4-8 of Danmarks Næste Top Model or Denmark’s Next Top Model (2010). From 2015 onwards, Fleming has been cast in the American reality series on Bravo, titled Ladies of London.

Fleming runs a business too in the form of Beautiful Legs, her own hosiery range and is also credited with creating the fragrances Eau de Vie and Eau de Vie: Josephine.
She is not only an accomplished cook but also a bestselling author, with three books (two about food and one about lifestyle) to her name: Baroness Goes in the Kitchen (2009), Baroness Healthy Fast Food (2010) and Happy Now! (2010).
