I can't believe my own eyes, what will Richard Palmer say about this?

This is just my take on it. To be honest, I liked hearing that Will and Kate have decided to add a family kitchen to the apartment. From what I've read about KP's apartments (primarily Diana's), there is a kitchen which is capable of handling just about any kind of entertainment needs to a full blown formal banquet. IIRC too, the dining room is also quite on the formal side.

I see the family kitchen as the Cambridge's "hub" of the family much like it is for most families. In my addled mind I even picture them as sort of a family you'd find in a Norman Rockwell painting. Mom cooking, Dad reading the paper and Lupo under the table sniffing for donations from the kids. It also stands to reason to me that this is an indication that they will not be hiring a full time cook.

Head of Stare, her consort & heir to the throne should be financed by public. William, Kate & Harry too. But where should the line be drawn?

Apart from the Queen and DoE, Royal Ascot attendence is private for all other royals. The event is run by the Racecourse.

Pay for what on those 4 days? The clothes? The jewels? The transportation? The betting bill?

Oh most certainly and the big winner of it all is the papers like the DM who raise their circulation which then raises the sponsors of the ads which then can ply the whiners and moaners with tempting ads to lure them to spend their money on things they have been told they want. Christmas is just around the corner and the time to start flashing those ads is now.

"Good value for money?" UK monarchy increases spending to £35.7mn in 2013 | RT Business
Quote:
Taxpayer funding for the British royal family reached £35.7 million last year, as the Queen’s expenses rose by £1.9 million, or nearly 6 percent , as the so-called ‘commoners’ grapple with the hardships of recovery.

The figure works out to 56 pence per person, less than $1, which royal aides have said is a "good value for money.”

I still can't believe the Royal Yacht was taken away from the royals and was never replaced. I actually think one should be provided during Charles & William's reign.

I will never forgive the government of the time getting rid of Royal Yacht Britannia - what is the point of such a beautiful ship being left in dock so far away from everyone and turned into a museum?
Everyone loves a ship and it gave such joy....for a few million pounds a year it would have been well worth saving. I do wonder sometimes about the Queen though, she should have been tougher about it and insisted it was kept or used in privately herself.
Bring Back The Royal Yacht!!!

The reason for scrapping Britannia was cost - it needed a refit which was going to cost millions and millions and at the time the public wouldn't have stood for more money to be spent on such an extravagance.

Had that been needed in the 80s it would have been done but in the 90s no way - the royals were on the nose.

It was also when the freeze on royal income was extended (started in 1992 and only ended in 2012) so the Queen went for 20 or so years with no pay increase (my pay increased 150% in that time and didn't keep pace with inflation) but she had to continually make economies in order to keep everything going.

I think at some point down the road the Yacht should have been replaced though. The Yacht was used as part of the working "Firm" and it had a lot of life left in her. Even Prince Philip think there were ways to update the Yacht without costing a great deal.

I don't see the problem with replacing it the future.

There is no way the British public will support a new yacht.

Notice that now the security is being cut back with The Queen having to use the Sovereign Grant to do some of the security as the Metropolitan Police say they aren't going to do it anymore.
