What is Boris Johnson’s Net Worth in 2022?

Boris Johnson is a British politician who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2019 to 2022. He also served as the Leader of the Conservative Party during this period. He has an estimated net worth of $2 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.

However, we believe it to be much higher than $2 million. We did our research and found no credible source with a different number. Everyone seems to have mentioned it as $2 million. 

58-Year-old Johnson resigned as UK Prime Minister on Thursday (7th July) after days of high voltage political drama as close to 30 important UK government officials tendered their resignation.

Johnson said, “It is clearly the will of the parliamentary Conservative party that there should be a new leader of that party, and therefore a new prime minister. I am immensely proud of my achievements, I will continue till a new leader is in place.”

“I will extend all my support to the new PM who will continue to cut the burden on families and businesses. I am sad to be giving up the best job in the world”, he added.
