They can stay at Royal Lodge for the reason being that their father has a lease on the property. As far as I know, nothing in the two York princesses' lives are ever at the Queen's expense. Their father, Andrew, pays out of pocket for their security. How they finance whatever they do, is their own private business.

They, however, are very unlikely to have to live paycheck to paycheck to make ends meet. They have things such as trust funds and its possible that a lot of their holidays are cheaper than most because they've been invited by friends. For example, if a friend just happens to be Holly Branson Andrews, cheap flight via Virgin could be possible because Holly's dad owns the business. Stay at Necker Island for free as Holly's dad owns the place. Cruise the Mediterranean cheap because friends own a yacht. That kind of thing.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

Exactly, they stay at Royal lodge because it is their father's home. He paid a lease on the home. They also pay rent on their apartment they have in SJP. Or at least their father does. None of this money comes from the queen or from tax payers. And if it came from the queen, comes from her own money and would be hers to complain about no one else's.

The York girls fund their life the same way their cousins do, through trust funds. They have substantial trust funds like the Wales boys do.

And as Osipi pointed out, many of their holidays are practically free if not. They spend a lot of time with their friends the Bransons at their private homes, and I doubt Richard and his kids charge them. They also go to Switzerland where they own a home.

Many of the so called 'vacations' are not vacations anyways. When they are pictured 'dining out in NY with a designer' Beatrice was there presenting an award for the UN. When Eugenie was 'partying in Miami', she was there for a big art event being hosted by her gallery.

Why are people trying to sideline B&E at this particular point. One day they may not be needed but I don't think George and Charlotte should be grouped into that streamline royalty when they may not be doing royal duties for another 2 decades; and if they are anything like the or father and mother they won't be full time until they are in their 30's. I'm not saying B&E are valuable commodities, just that people need to stop acting like WnK have already produced 3 working royals.

Now your comment had me in stitches because one of those hard working royals is not even born yet...........and the other two are still babies in a sense....hard working now, yes they are hard working at growing up and learning to walk and talk and what, shaking hands, cutting ribbons already..... Ah, if only we could really see the future here.....what would Princess Charlotte be wearing tonight?
And how many children do Eugenie and Beatrice have to carry out royal duties?
