The House of Thani, the ruling royal family of Qatar, led by Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, is one of the wealthiest surviving dynasties in the world. Led by the Emir, aka ruler of Qatar, the royal family defines the difference between the rich and the ultra-rich. The Emir of Qatar and his family have shown the true power of power and money. Combined, the two result in a world that is hard to imagine in the first place and difficult to understand when seeing. A royal family is expected to lead an extravagant life, but the Qatari royal family, unlike other royal families, puts the “plus” in extravagant. From their mega mansions in swanky locations, to stunning superyachts and zoomed-in supercars, the House of Thani has set an unattainable benchmark of extraordinary living-
Mega Mansions in Doha and London-
Where do the members of the royal family live? In palaces, of course! The Royal Palace in Qatar is the perfect home for the House of Thani, which holds a whopping net worth of $335 billion. For obvious reasons, there are no pictures or information of what the glorious white palace dotted with blue cars looks like, but it is obviously opulent. High arches, manicured lawns, and sprawling space speak to the luxury that lies below.
In addition to the palace in Doha, the royal family also lives with panache in the heart of buzzing London. Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned, the Emir’s third wife, has bought a Cornwall terrace for $80 million. She then paid another $40 million for 2-3 Cornwall Terrace, making it one of the most expensive real estate parcels. It’s no secret that the House of Thani owns more of London than the Crown Estate; their mansion is a true testament to this stature. The $250 million mansion features a 33,000 square foot main house with a spa, heated pool, beauty salon, butler and nanny quarters, children’s floor, game rooms, shower rooms, massage areas, two elevators and a gymnasium, per DailyMail.
A personal art collection that would rival a museum –
Qatar’s rulers have an eye for all things beautiful, including many valuable works of art. Fans of royal art have collected some enviable pieces over the past two decades. Members of the Al-Thani family sparked Qatar’s interest and involvement in the arts, so much so that William Lawrie, Head of International Contemporary Arab and Iranian Art at Christie’s, joked: “The Qatar’s royal family bears a strong resemblance to its modern counterparts. of the Medici in 16th century Florence.
The Emir’s daughter, Al-Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, heads the royal family at the Qatar Museums Authority (QMA) and is dubbed ‘the most powerful woman in the art world today’ today”. His cousin Saud bin Muhammed Al Thani has an extensive collection of traditional manuscripts, carpets, scientific instruments and Mughlai jewelry which he regularly brings to museums. Sheikh Saud’s older brother, Hassan bin Mohamed bin Ali Al Thani, is an avid art collector who has the largest collections in the Arab world with 6,300 pieces.
Their collection of supercars actually stops traffic –
The royal family drives a fleet of cars mere mortals can only dream of. Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani was spotted driving the $6 million Bugatti Divo in London. The car was sent to London City along with his Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 and Ferrari Monza SP2.
The Bugatti Chiron has also been spotted driving around House of Thani members in town on occasion. The huge collection of Qatari royal family cars includes supercars like the Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Rembrandt Legend, the Bugatti Chiron Grey, a LaFerrari Aperta, a Lamborghini Centenario White coupe and even a Lamborghini Centenario Roadster. The royal fleet of hypercars also includes a McLaren P1.
They relax and travel in style on their megayacht –
The $400 million superyacht Katara, owned by the Qatari royal family, is one of the most lavish luxury ships in the world. The 7,922 tonne yacht is one of the largest mega super yachts in the world, moored in Falmouth, Cornwall, near the royal residence. The Lurssen Mammoth is equipped with a helicopter deck, satellite domes, tenders and jet skis. Among its many luxury amenities, Katara is known for its huge beach club, multiple gyms, beauty salon, and several swimming pools. The floating palace accommodates nearly 35 guests and 90 crew members.
Forget a Gulfstream, they have their own Boeing 747 Jumbo jet –
Not just trendsetters on earth, the royal family of Qatar also rules the skies with a $600 million Boeing 747-8. The private jet is a class of its own with ten bathrooms, several living rooms spread over two floors and a superb bedroom.
The plane, which resembles a mini-palace in blue, white and gold, can accommodate 76 passengers and 18 crew members. Interestingly, the aircraft is designed to carry 467 people on a commercial flight.
Besides comfort, another top priority for any VVIP is health and this jet is equipped with a state-of-the-art medical center.
The royal family has a penchant for sports-
The Qatar Royal Family’s love of sport is as well-established as their love of luxury. Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani put Qatar on the world map through sport. As head of the National Olympic Committee, he chaired Qatar’s bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. He played a key role in the acquisition of football club Paris Saint-Germain. In 2010, member of the royal family of Qatar, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Al-Thani, bought the Spanish club Málaga.
