The Monarchy is such good value I’m told because we get to keep all the revenues from the Crown Estate. This, publicly owned and operated estate, was stolen from the people of Britain through the thousand years since the Norman conquest and is valued at a £1 billion.
The wealth owned by most members of the Royal Family is simply theft legitimised by history. When exactly was this land and wealth earned? When they were rampaging psychopaths or after we had removed all formal power from them? They should be stripped of all land and private property, they haven’t earned it. If they want to be continue to be Royalty they can draw a wage for their job like the rest of us. Don’t even get me started on the Duchy of Cornwall!
