I'd say the British Royal Family mainly because they seem to get the most attention worldwide when it comes to ceremony and weddings.

The BRF certainly isn't the richest in the world

If you count Crown estates, Crown jewels (including their historical value), properties and everything the Monarchy owns, they’d probably be the richest.
In terms of personal fortune, British Royal Family is not even in the Top 5.

The richest Royal Families are those of Brunei, Saudi Arabia, Dubai and UAE (Abu Dhabi). King Bhumibol of Thailand was I think last years richest Royal (although when it comes to Royal Families, not individual Royals, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, Dubai and UAE still beat Thailand).
In Europe, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg's Families are also richer than the British one. In terms of individuals, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands is ‘worth’ more than Queen Elizabeth as well.

BZ.de is reporting that there will be no salary increase for King Juan Carlos, because of the financial and economic crisis:

I just veiwed a documentary call the " THE MONARCHY" it is stated that the Windsors is obessed over finances
The Queen and The Prince of Wales VOLUNTEERED to pay taxes. They did not have to do anything. The late Queen Mum paid no taxes either. Although you are right other junior royals in that family have to pay taxes.

And in most countries in the constitution the monarch (King and Queen) are never required to pay taxes. Only other members of their families. So I don't think the monarchs are jealous. But some of the other members of the family may be angry they have to pay taxes. But that's life. Move out of the country if you don't like it.

Royal expenditure

I tried to find a thread relating to this but I had no luck. I was wondering if any had a list of expenditure for each of the monarchies in Europe? For comparison I mean.

No there is no list. But the Luxembourg royals, Monegasque (Monaco) royals, and the Liechtenstein royals are said to be some of the richest. Worth billions! So it is between the three. The British royal family are poor compared to those families I have just named. The richest royal families however are all outside of Europe. When European royalty became constitutional monarchs they lost some of that great wealth. Although, they're all still considered to be wealthy compared to you and I. LOL

I'm not sure of it, but it seems to me that Forbes has also a list of the richest royals.
Among the European royals, the richest are indeed Liechtenstein (about 3.2 billion Euros), Monaco and Lucxembourg.

I didn't know the Dutch RF is the owner of Shell.
Wikipedia reports 200 million dollars as the net worth of this House; is it possible that this datum is incorrect? I ask because some time ago I read somewhere (but I can't recall where exactly) that the wealth of the Dutch RF is about 4.5 billion dollars; can someone help me to clarify?
