The Royal Household accounts were published today, and can
be found in full on the Official Buckingham
Palace web site.
Head of State Expenditure is met from public funds in
exchange for the surrender by The Queen to the Government of the revenue from
the Crown Estate and other hereditary revenues. The Treasury's gross
receipts in respect of the Crown Estate were £188 million in 2005-06.
Whilst the left wing press like to tell us how much the
Royal Household costs to run, £37.3 million or £0.62p for every person in the
UK, that pales into insignificance against the earnings of the Crown Estates
into the Treasury, which earned £3.13 for each and every one of us.
Our Royal Family are excellent value for money (for those
who really need to see it set in financial terms), good value for Britain
and are the glue that holds this nation together.
I swore allegiance to Her Majesty and to the Crown, that is
the way it will remain, never freely or willingly giving anything to Europe.
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN.
