Some people must work their entire lifetimes to earn enough money to live comfortably, while others are born into wealth. Numerous members of this category are still minors, constituting an elite cohort of the world’s wealthiest children.
Children with affluent parents, exceptional skills, or good luck are more likely to be recognised in a field where few individuals achieve excellence despite widespread effort. These fortunate individuals are either born affluent or become billionaires prior to attaining the legal drinking age.
How did they achieve success? It varies greatly; some were born into monarchy, others are young celebrities, and still others were born to parents who are extremely renowned.
Meet the world’s wealthiest offspring of 2023:
1. Benji Wojin
Benji Wojin is the richest child in the world, as his father Larry Page is one of the world’s richest men who has not signed the giving pledge, a voluntary agreement in which billionaires commit to donate at least half of their wealth to charity over the course of their lives.
Benji Wojin, born in 2008, is anticipated to inherit at least a portion of his father’s fortune, valuing him at over $10 billion and making him not only the richest boy in the world but also the richest child in the United States.
