This is why I never fell for the BS about how Princess Anne oh so wonderfully raised her kids; both are as spoiled and corrupt as the rest of them.

Wasn't there talk at the time of ER's bash that PP would benefit and it was denied?

Everyone else in the UK has to dip into their savings at the moment, why should the RF be any different.  All this talk about how hard they work is BS - the average Joe in the street works a full day then goes home to ship, cook, clean, look after kids etc

I truly believe that the Arab royals have the right idea; if they want to see a star perform, they hire the star and the entire concert is put on for the public, not just in any private arena. The Arabs also work 24/7 in every possible area of industry and adhere to unquestioning obedience to the King so no issues among family.

‘Brexit’ Threatens Subsidies for U.K.’s Landed Gentry, and Queen

SANDRINGHAM, England — It is a club that includes some of the world’s richest people. There are dukes, sheikhs, flamboyant entrepreneurs — even Queen Elizabeth II and other members of the royal family.

What they have in common besides ownership of some of Britain’s finest estates — adorned with stately homes, manicured gardens and, sometimes, racing stables — is their legal status as farmers, which means they are on the dole for European Union farm subsidies.

The queen’s idyllic 20,000-acre estate at Sandringham is among the huge holdings supported by the annual payouts, receiving more than $675,000 in European farm subsidies last year (down from $975,000 the year before).

But that could be about to change because of Britain’s decision to leave the European Union, known as Brexit.

This makes my blood boil. Comments on DM very scathing. ER salts millions away that could be used to fund the NHS etc.  So much for how she cares about her people. Greefy old woman.

^ and ^^  Exactly. She probably doesn't know about every  investment but she could easily have made it known she didn't want to use any off shore tax havens or invest in dodgy companies i.e. those that use child labour. But then anyone who is so friendly with the Saudi RF has questionable morals.

Paradise Papers: Tax haven secrets of ultra-rich exposed
A huge new leak of financial documents has revealed how the powerful and ultra-wealthy, including the Queen's private estate, secretly invest vast amounts of cash in offshore tax havens.
Donald Trump's commerce secretary is shown to have a stake in a firm dealing with Russians sanctioned by the US.
The leak, dubbed the Paradise Papers, contains 13.4m documents, mostly from one leading firm in offshore finance.
BBC Panorama is part of nearly 100 media groups investigating the papers.
Follow live updates
As with last year's Panama Papers leak, the documents were obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, which called in the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) to oversee the investigation. The Guardian is also among the organisations investigating the documents.
Sunday's revelations form only a small part of a week of disclosures that will expose the tax and financial affairs of some of the hundreds of people and companies named in the data, some with strong UK connections.
Many of the stories focus on how politicians, multinationals, celebrities and high-net-worth individuals use complex structures of trusts, foundations and shell companies to protect their cash from tax officials or hide their dealings behind a veil of secrecy.

Paradise Papers: Queen should apologise, suggests Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn has suggested the Queen, among others, should apologise for using overseas tax havens if they were used to avoid taxation in the UK.
The Labour leader was asked at the CBI conference whether the Queen should say sorry for making overseas investments.
He said anyone putting money into tax havens for the purposes of avoidance should "not just apologise for it, recognise what it does to our society".
The BBC has revealed that the Queen's estate has used overseas tax havens.
It comes after a leak from the tax haven of Bermuda revealed the secret overseas investments of the rich and famous, including the Queen.
Mr Corbyn's spokesman later clarified his comments, saying the Labour leader did not specifically call on the Queen to apologise but thought "anyone who puts money into a tax haven to avoid paying tax should acknowledge the damage it does to society".
Buckingham Palace has not commented on the revelation that the Duchy of Lancaster, which handles the Queen's private wealth, used offshore investments.
A spokesperson for the Duchy of Lancaster said: "We operate a number of investments and a few of these are with overseas funds. All of our investments are fully audited and legitimate.
"The Queen voluntarily pays tax on any income she receives from the Duchy."

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

You can be sure if Corbyn's mob ever got into power ER wouldn't have any luck getting more from the taxpayer !! Even that cloud has a silver lining

All the family probably has most of their assets outside UK. You never know what may happen.
