Here’s an overview of some of the richest women resident in the UK, according to Philip Beresford a leading authority on British wealth.

Charlene de Carvalho

Born June 30, 1954, Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken is the owner of a 25% controlling interest in the world's third-largest brewer: Heineken International. The 59-year-old sits on a fortune worth an estimated £5.4 billion that she inherited from her father when he died in 2002. Her father, Freddy Heineken, was former boss of Heineken.

Kirsten Rausing

Born June 6, 1952 in Lund Sweden, Kristen Rausing owns a controlling interest in the privately held Tetra Laval multinational corporation headquartered in Pully. The 61-year old oversaw Tetra Laval turn in sales of £7.6 billion in 2009. Kirsten’s estimated net worth is a whooping £3.9 billion.

Lady Green

Lady Tina Green comes in next as one of the richest women in UK with an estimated fortune of £3.3 billion. Lady Green shares her fortune with her retail tycoon husband, Sir Philip Green.

Baroness Howard de Walden and family

Baroness Howard de Walden and family are estimated to be worth £2.2 billion. With such a fortune, it is not surprising that in 2010 the baroness and family were able to acquire 14 period properties on Harley Street from the Crown Estate worth £34m. The properties located in the middle of the Howard de Walden 90-acre estate in London had not been traded in more than 470 years. Amazing what a nice, clean fortune can get you!

With this fortune, Anita and her husband have commissioned a £60m pair of “his” and “hers” mansions with an exclusive art gallery and the largest basement developments dug in Britain.
