Well, this is totally rumour and unconfirmed but I've been told that Margrethe gives Anne-Marie a certain amount of money each year which comes from her private funds. Elizabeth gives Constantine a certain amount each year on the suggestion of Prince Philip. But that could be complete rot.

I don't believe that, they have to be very careful in the way they spend their money (private or not), it maybe was a one time thing but I don't think it's permanent

Do you mean the rumored $200 million dowry of Crown Princess Pavlos? I think the foundation is plausible - friends give to the foundation. In return, they get invites to events, not just Greek family related events but also where TM can "put in a good word" for the friend.

She got it "free" from Volkswagen (who owned Bentley at that time ... marvellous advertising, eh?).

I certainly believe it, where ex-Queen Anne-Marie and reigning Queen Margrethe are concerned. I've always wondered what the origin of the ex-Greek royal's spending money is. I think Anne-Marie's discretion is legendary and hence worth 'rewarding'.

Talking about origin of wealth ... it is rumoured that King Juan Carlos went to the Middle East when he was a young king, and got a non-repayable gift of at least a million dollars as a result of his schmoozing.

Not at all. In private she always drives in the newest-of-the-newest fourwheel Volvo.

Queen Beatrix' car park (The Royal Stables Department) has some 100 cars, vans, busses, etc.). As far as I know she has never ever driven a Volkswagen.

Where is the garage/parking lot?

I'm looking at various Royal Palaces don't seem to have a garage or a parking lot.

Where do they keep the Royals' cars?

I know this is a dumb question but I'm trying to make a palace in The Sims 2 and I need to know where the cars go!

I assume they are kept underground. That way they are out of sight, at least the ones that belong to the staff or the family itself. I can't imagine Queen Elizabeth II or King Juan Carlos stopping by one of their many castles, opening the car window with a garage door opener in hand and pointing toward the giant gates of the castle to open up. That would be like out of a Mel Brooks movie.

And no, is not a dumb question. I remember that when I was a kid and used to look at history books with floor plans of royal homes and my first thought was 'where are the bathrooms?!?!'
