I'm UK's richest Gypsy Alfie Best's daughter – I dropped out of school aged 11… now I'm following in dad's footsteps | The Sun

ALFIE Best's daughter has opened up about how she dropped out of school at the age of 11 – but is now following in her dad's footsteps.

The UK's richest Gypsy has two children, and while his son Alfie Jnr keeps a high profile like Alfie, Elizabeth mostly stays under the radar.

But now the 27-year-old has opened up about her childhood – and why she's working within her dad's empire.

Speaking in a new film called Gypsy Billionaire, which premiers this Friday, Elizabeth revealed how she walked away from school in year 6.

But she's now a park manager for Wlydecrest Parks – which is what Alfie started from scratch and made his millions off.

Elizabeth said: "I literally only went to primary school. I left in year 6.

"It was sort of like mum and dad having a big heavy discussion – do we send her to school, do we not send her to school? Should she go, should she not?

"Once I started driving I did put myself into college – design class I did millinery at Chelsea and Kensington College.

"And that was really the education – that was it."

Now Elizabeth manages one of Alfie's sites in Windsor – and broke down why she's so passionate about it.

She explained: "We grew up on a park, we grew up learning and interacting and spending time and making relationships with the residents.

"If anyone needed something they'd knock on our door and sometimes if we needed something they were always there. It's a lovely environment to live in and we couldn't have wished for a better childhood growing up on a park.

"It was like living with a load of grandparents."

The 27-year-old continued: "I feel like it's more of a community where everyone's of a similar age, they're all of a similar mindset.

"Everyone sort of wants to move onto a park to know their neighbours to know what's going on – to sort of have a community feel.

"And I do think the company encouraging that and myself living on a park we sort of experience that first hand."

Alfie explained how "proud" he was of Elizabeth, and that she'd put the hard yards in to get a top role.

The 53-year-old said: "She didn't just come in and get a board room seat, she got a job.

"That job originally started in accounts, she then went onto manage her own park,and then hopefully to be a senior manager and an area director and so on."

He added: "She's meticulously and slowly worked through it. And she's worked from the ranks up."

Alfie is on track to be crowned the world's first gypsy billionaire as early as next year.

His jaw-dropping wealth comes from his residential park homes empire Wyldecrest Parks, which made £32MILLION last year alone.

He travels around the country on his personalised helicopter – designed by James Bond’s favourite car company, Aston Martin.
