The world was left shocked and saddened when Robin Williams committed suicide.
While most saw the death as unexpected, it looks like the legendary comedian had a plan in place.
In his will, which was filed at the beginning of January 2011, he left his three children, Zak, 31, Zelda, 25, and Cody, 22, well cared for.

Turns out, his entire estate is being left in a trust for the kids and his wife, Susan Schneider — that is, according to the terms of their prenup.
The directions Robin left when he signed the will back in 2011 were to:
'Give my entire estate, in trust [to the Robin Williams Trust]'
This means that his children will receive Robin's fortune in stages; a third of the entire comes at 21, half the remaining amount at 25, and the rest of their shares comes at age 30.
As for Susan, the executors will give her the share Robin left for her to 'fulfill my obligations' according to their prenup.
While Robin's death was a tragedy in itself, we're glad he did the right thing and took care of his wife and children after his passing.
What a great father. Rest in peace, Robin.
