Ooh! Forbes is at it again with a new list of The World's Richest Royals!

For those of you who are too lazy to click the link, here's the list (with Dubai's Sheikh Mo rocking the five-spot):

1) King Bhumibol Adulyadej
(Thailand) - $35 billion

2) Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan
(UAE - Abu Dhabi) - $23 billion

3) King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz
(The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) - $21 billion

4) Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah
(Brunei) - $20 billion

5) Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
(UAE - Dubai) - $18 billion

6) Prince Hans-Adam II von und zu Liechtenstein
(Liechtenstein) - $5 billion

7) Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani
(Qatar) - $2 billion

8) King Mohammed VI
(Morocco) - $1.5 billion

9) Prince Albert II
(Monaco) - $1.4 billion

10) Sultan Qaboos bin Said
(Oman) - $1.1 billion

For the record, in March it was estimated that Warren Buffett is the richest person in the world with $62 billion. A Mexican telecommunications magnate, Carlos Slim Helú, is number two with $60 billion.

Which means that Bill Gates is only the third richest with $58 billion.

Poor Bill. However, maybe if Windows Vista wasn't such a vistaster he'd be up a little higher ...
