Emma Parker Bowles Net Worth

By Suren Prasad

Royalty-connected British model, journalist-cum-TV host, and a contestant on The Jump, Emma Parker Bowles’ net worth is under review.

The niece of Camilla Parker Bowles (Duchess of Cornwall), Emma Parker Bowles was born to Camilla Younger and Richard Eustace Parker Bowles, in London, on December 8, 1974. After her parents split in 1976, her mum wed British peer, Conservative politician and Third Earl of Halifax, Charles Edward Peter Neil Wood.

How does she earn her money?

Following schooling at the prestigious Queen Margaret’s School in York, Parker Bowles turned to modelling and soon became one of the most talked about by tabloids because of her alleged romance with Prince William.

However, in 2000, she suffered from alcohol and substance addiction, resulting in rehab which she successfully saw through. Consequently, Parker Bowles underwent a pleasant transformation, turning into a witty columnist for the tabloids The Sun and Tatler. She was also a correspondent for the motoring magazine Top Gear.

Titled “hot royal” by the paparazzi, Parker Bowles went into TV presenting, with the role of co-host in Vroom Vroom, the Sky One sports car series (2006-2007).

Parker Bowles then shifted base to Los Angeles, California, in 2008, in hot pursuit of her TV ambitions, working her way through several jobs in Hollywood, including sweating it out as a ‘grease monkey’ or mechanic. She later took up rescuing homeless dogs, a praiseworthy service that was rewarded with her name being put up on the Honorary Board Members’ list of the non-profit, animal welfare organisation, the Tailwaggers Foundation. Apart from this, she also penned a column for the Daily Mail.

In 2010, she made her last big TV appearance in the controversial Famous, Rich and Jobless, a programme about poverty in the UK.
