Niki Richard Dalgliesh Cavill, the second oldest brother of actor Henry Cavill, has taken up the mantle of serving the country as a member of the Royal Marines. As accomplished a person as he is, Niki is also a beloved husband and father.

Today, we will talk about the details of the life of Niki Cavill, from his highly coveted position in the Marine to his serene married life.

Key Takeaways

  • Niki is 49 years old as of 2024.
  • He runs the Durrell Challenge marathon every year with his brothers.
  • His service in Afghanistan brought him the decoration of an MBE.
  • Niki is happily married to his wife, Charlotte-Rhodes Brooks.
  • His net worth is $1 million as of 2024.

Is In His Late 40s

Niki was born in 1975 to Richard Cavill, a stockbroker, and Marianne, a housewife and a former bank secretary. He is the second eldest among the Cavill siblings including his four brothers: Piers Cavill, Simon Cavill, Henry Cavill, and Charlie Cavill.

Niki Cavill And His Brothers Fought As Kids

Niki and his brothers have a tight-knit bond, despite the rough nature of their relationship during childhood. They grew up like any other brothers – by throwing punches left and right at each other.

But that was just another reason they maintained a closer relationship. So, it is not surprising that even today, the brothers remain close and even work together for the betterment of the world.

Joins His Brothers For Charity Events

The Cavill brothers are as charitable as they come. They do not shy away from helping several fundraisers whether it’s donating or running a marathon for them.

In May 2017, Niki and his brothers took part in the Durrell Challenge, a marathon conducted by the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

The fundraiser’s goal is to protect almost extinct animals and restore the ecosystem. The Cavill brothers ran the 13-kilometer marathon.

He Has Been Serving The Royal Marine Since 1999

At the age of 49, Niki is a Senior British Military Advisor with the decoration of an MBE (The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire), having served The Royal Marine Corps since 1999.

He was appointed an MBE after he served in Afghanistan from March to September 2011, leading a counter-insurgency campaign and helping the local police make the area safer from the Taliban.

On top of that, in 2016, Niki Cavill led the 30 Commando Information Exploitation Group as a lieutenant colonel MBE. The group followed reconnaissance spy missions near enemy lines and exploited electromagnetic warfare. In doing so, they had the chance to confuse the opponents and sometimes even drain enemy morale.

“Lt Col Nik has already proven himself to be a supreme leader of men and is already heading his new unit with distinction.”

His Brother Henry Cavill is an Ambassador for The Royal Marines Charity

Henry has prioritized maintaining goodwill with his brother, Niki’s place of service, by being an ambassador for The Royal Marines Charity for years now. He has helped countless times to gather funds for the Royal Marines family.

And although his brother being a part of the Corp definitely helps with his intentions, Henry has clarified that he contributes to the charity because of the respect he carries for the Marines.

“I choose to support this charity, not only because of my obvious familial connection but because of the deep respect I have for the Royal Marines as men as a corps.”

To further show his support, Henry also wishes the Royal Marine Corps on their birthday every year, as he speaks of his pride over the armed forces.

Wife Also Runs Marathon, Supporting The Charity

Niki is happily married to his wife, Charlotte-Rhodes Brooks. The Times Magazine announced that the two were engaged in October 2002. It wasn’t long until they walked down the wedding aisle.

Although the couple remains behind the scenes most of the time, they do occasionally appear on the rare Instagram posts that Henry Cavill shares.

Niki’s wife also runs the annual Durrell charity marathon alongside her husband and his brothers. Those are the rare times Henry posts pictures with her, whether it’s after the run or during a break.

Is A Father

While it’s not reported how many children he has, Niki is already a father. The confirmation came with the caption of a Facebook post that Henry shared of all the Cavill men in the family.

It was an old picture posted for the occasion of Father’s Day, on June 21, 2020, and the caption said, “In this here photo only one of the Cavill men was a father. Now…a few years later, only one isn’t!”

Considering the obvious fact that Henry doesn’t have a kid, it insinuated that all of his brothers, including Niki, were fathers already.

What is Niki’s Net Worth?

Niki has a net worth of $1 million, amassed from his long service in the Royal Marines Corps. Besides him, his famous brother, Henry, is worth $50 million.
