Daniel Radcliffe Is Richer Than Royalty

Even mere muggles know that the Harry Potter franchise has made Daniel Radcliffe a very wealthy wizard, but this just in: D-Rad has conjured up a fortune bigger than those of Princes William and Harry!

London's Daily Mail reports Radcliffe is worth $45 million, one million more than Britain's royal sons, who are worth about $44 million each.

How did the bespectacled boy wizard get so rich at just age 21? It's not only the fact that he inked a $43 million contract for the two-part Deathly Hallows finale films; apparently Daniel is a savvy businessman too, doubling his fortune in the last year alone. Citing financial records, the Mail reports Radcliffe has "current and fixed investments" valued at $30 million. $5 million in the bank and another $10 million due from debtors for his film work.

Daniel also owns three properties -- two in New York and a flat in London. Now that the news of his riches is out, Daniel will probably have to pick up the tab for a few cast dinners when he stars in Broadway's How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

What should Daniel do with his fortune? Give him a few ideas in the comments.

    He should do something for the good of society .. like give SOMETHING to SOME charity ... it's really disgusting to think how much good coul come of even a fraction of that much money. And what has he done to deserve it? Been a not-so-good child actor? He has very little acting ability, I can't even watch some scenes with him because I'm embarrassed for him ...

    He should invest in it. That's what I would do. And this is coming from someone that is struggling with money issues. If I was that rich, I would pay off my school loans.
