To be pedantic she in fact bought her clothes from her own money, from her husband, who derives his income from the land he owns - ie the Duchy of Cornwall.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duchy_of_Cornwall
Fwiw Rashford is reported to be on £375k per week or £10,4m per year (I haven't checked the maths).
That is just his wages, you add on to that his sponsorships and image rights which Bob can tell you more about from the company accounts that is set up to deal with them.
Prince Williams total income is shown to be something like £21m per year, which includes for his family and all the costs for his (and his wife's) royal duties.
It would appear on the surface anyway that Rashford and Mr and Mrs Wales earn roughly the same amount of money as each other.
One kicks a ball about (with ten other mates being paid a similar amount) and seems to date a questionable woman (his life, his choice), the other, whether you believe in the Royals or not, do seem intent on doing public good (the less said about his brother and uncle, the better).
