AI do wonder how prepared the RF are for this ever happening, the Queen receives £12million+ from the Duchy of Lancaster that goes to her personally and is used to meet a lot of the costs of other royals etc but that still leave a fair amount going to her personally, could the RF cope even privately without this and just the income from Balmoral, Sandringham and private investments? Recently in the Norwegian RF threads it was said King Harald V's fortune was mainly held in trusts set up in case of an "emergency" to provide income independent of the State - maybe QE2 should think of something similar.
Im sure the RF have provision against the day when maybe they have to go...

The former Bavarian royal family stilk receives millions per year from the Bayerische Ausgleichfonds and have rights of use of (parts) of the former royal residences. In many states where the monarchy was ended, prudent arrangements were made. I have no doubt the same will happen in the UK in a similar case.

Whilst I think the Queen definitely had built up some savings for such an event, remember when Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 it was widely reported the Queen had to give Charles the money for his divorce.
I wonder if somewhere, well hidden, there is a plan for what would happen if the monarchy was abolished.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this information.

For Australian people there is another royal special on tonight on ABC at 8.30pm. Entitled "Windsor Inc" the show Four Corners will look at the "sophisticated corporate campaign to future-proof the crown". The show charts how the royals have rebuilt their reputation and changed the way they managed "The Firm".

The new look royals are the result of "one of the most spectacular rebranding exercises in modern times"

Sounds fascinating.

Future of the BRF...I admit i look forward to Charles as king but its for personal reasons and because I feel he has been bullied and mistreated.

Please note that a number of posts relating to the topic of whether or not the Queen would/will/should abdicate have been moved to the The Queen: Would She Consider Abdication or Retirement? thread.

In case someone is interested, the Wittelsbacher-Ausgleichfonds at the moment pays 14 Mill. EUR each year to the family, according to the quality paper of Munich, Die Sueddeutsche (Zeitung).

According to the contract between souverain and parliament about The Crown Estate, the enormous riches of the Crown Estate plus den whole estate of the Duchies of Lancaster and Cornwall revert back to the personal possession of the former souverain. It is the same like with any historic estate of a titled Briton: it becomes private property again. So getting rid of the monarchy would make the current souverain enormously rich in private while the taxpayer would have to pay for a new head of state from the state's money. A bad move!

Yes! It’s just worth noting that more transitional changes are coming for the Windsor’s this year.
