Early Life

Rory John Gates was born on May 23 1999, in Seattle, Washington State United States, to parents Bill and Melinda Gates. His father is an Investor, business magnate, philanthropist and author, while his mother is a philanthropist and former general manager at Microsoft. He has two sisters, Jennifer Katherine Gates who is three years older than him, and Phoebe Adele Gates, who is three years younger. Rory and his sisters were not allowed mobile phones until they turned fourteen and were raised as normally as possible by their parents, considering the Gates’ position in the business, with Bill one of the richest people in the world. They are Catholic (Protestants) by faith.

He attended and matriculated from Lakeside School (Seattle), which is the same school that his father attended, and is rated as a higher-class private school in Seattle. He went on to graduate from Duke University with a degree in Computer Science and Economics, after which he is studying for an MBA degree at Fuqua School of Business.


The three siblings received a decent amount of pocket money for completing their household chores, and each was given an equal set of responsibilities.

He was allowed his first mobile phone at the age of fourteen, as his father wanted to limit his children’s exposure to technology.

He also had to give his passwords to his parents, for them to better keep track of his activity.

He and his siblings have all been vaccinated fully, as stated publicly by their mother on her Instagram account in an attempt to convince everyone, especially anti-vaxxers, to ‘listen to the science and act to protect our children.

Rory and his family reside in a $123.54 million mansion located in Medina, Washington US.

The mansion is named Xanadu 2.0 after the fictional home of Charles Foster Kane, a character in the 1941 drama film “Citizen Kane” by Orson Welles. The mansion is earth-sheltered on the side of a hill and overlooks Lake Washington

It appears that he has a close relationship with both of his parents, especially his mother, who has praised her son for being a feminist.

She wrote in an essay posted on the eve of his 18th birthday,

Rory is compassionate and curious.

He’s a great son and a caring brother.

He’s inherited his parents’ obsessive love of puzzles.

And one of the things that makes me proudest: Rory is a feminist.

As he goes out into the world, I feel more optimistic than ever about the future his generation will build.’

In 2015, Rory and his mom travelled to Malawi in South-eastern Africa to see the work their foundation has achieved.

They met with a group of men that were working together to shift gender norms in the community.

When he was 10, he wrote a poem entitled “What’s Known As Diamante” while on vacation in Europe The poem was about the physics of light, black holes and stars and was inspired by the knowledge of physics that his father presented him with during their family vacation. It was made up of seven lines written in the shape of a diamond. Bill published the poem on his website in April 2010, and it was received with fascinated interest by the public. Rory, along with his father and grandfather, threw out the first pitch at Safeco Field in the 2013 game for the Seattle Mariners, which suggests that he and his family are fans of the baseball team.

He is passionate about cars, and it has been reported that he owns a Porsche Panamera, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Lamborghini and Mercedes-Benz. He was also seen flying in 2016, suggesting he’s intrigued with flying as well.


Rory John Gates is the only son of Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates.

While he is still too young to join his father at Microsoft or to choose a different career path for himself, he has regularly graced the pages of Tabloid due to enormous curiosity about his romantic relationships and net worth. According to tabloid reports, he is currently single and is expected to receive $10 million from his father, who wants his children to have independent careers and has pledged to donate the majority of his life’s earnings to charities. He has also inherited his parents' kind and compassionate nature, and following in his parents' footsteps, he has started donating to charities. While he donates one third of his pocket money to charities, his parents match that exact amount to make a double payment. Interestingly, far from being a rich brat kid, he is already curious about global issues and eager to contribute to solving those. However, he is a shy teenager and very rarely makes public appearances other than with his family members.

Being born to Bill and Melinda Gates, he[3] has lived the entirety of his life under the limelight.

However, his parents made sure that he and his sisters had a normal upbringing despite their elite status.

Like his sisters, he has kept a low profile throughout his life.

At the age of ten, while learning about different forms of poetry, he decided to write a poem on the physics of light that he had learned from his father while on vacation in Europe.

The seven-line diamond-shaped poem, known as ‘Rory’s Diamante Poem’, had mentions of light, stars and black hole.

He then requested his father to publish the poem on his website, which the proud father did in April 2010.

Following this, he became a sensation among the masses.

Along with his sisters, he was being hailed as the world’s richest heir till his father decided to give away $28billion to charitable causes, and thereby descending to number two spot.

Net Worth

His estimated net worth is between $10 and $20 million, mainly accumulated from his inheritance from his father
