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.

Look, she is incredibly wealthy. She worked for little of it. She inherited a great deal. Lucky her and her heirs. She costs more than you think. But it is fine if her subjects are happy with it. Only her taxpayers should have a real opinion.

You don't think the Queen works? True she doesn't do physical labour, but being head of state is a job.

She has worked for every day for over 60 years. You need to get a real understanding of a monarchy because from your comments you havent a clue

I know you have the right to be on this forum as much as anyone else, but I don't quite understand what you are doing here.

C'mon, unnecessary provocative comment, and you know it ...

Yes we do. This is a quote from the NHS website

Overall, NHS England has a budget of £95.6 billion for 2014

The annual payment to HMQ is £37 million plus security. There is no way that royal security is expensive enough to top that.

Also - from the MI5 web site (an example of another budget!)

The Security Service's budget is paid from the Single Intelligence Account (SIA). ... The SIA will provide £1.9 billion in funding for 2014-15

If the Monarchy was an department it would be the least expensive. We are talking about and insititution that budget is in the millions not billions. Health, Defence and Education budgets for example would be in the billions. The most expensive goverment institution is laughable quite frankly. Even republicans would have to admit it.

cepe,
It was kind of you to provide information and comparisons. It is up to UK subjects to fund their current glitzy downgraded regime. As for very expensive NHS, there are many horror stories about it.

Isn't that a normal tax? My house is also taxed every year for the estimated value on the market. Is that new in the UK?

It is not a real bargain because the profits from the Crown Estates, after all owned by the State and therefore by all British citizens, do not flow into the empty wallet of the Chancellor of the Exchequer but to the monarchy. This stream can not be left out of the whole image. Would the profits first go into the general Revenues of the State, and then the Government would assignate an amount of it for the costs of the monarchy, then this was a much clearer image of the true costs.
