Tourists don't get to see the Royalty so saying they make that money is a poor excuse.

the Brits get £160 million from the profits generated by the land the Royals own.


You seem to think that land wasn`t just taken to begin with.


A person who gives themself a signifigant raise during a recession speaks volumes of how in touch they are with "commoners" what do they need more money for? Did BP stock tank too much for them to continue their lifestyle? Wake up!

Well it seems they are the only brits actually making any money. A raise is a good incentive to continue to do so! The Queen is an awesome woman of integrity. How does the 'mercan equivalent stack up?

They generate more cash then they earn because the Brits get £160 million from the profits generated by the land the Royals own. Include the revenue generated by tourism and you'll realize the Royal family are a good deal for the UK

Have a look at "The True Cost of the Royal Family Explained" by C.G.P Grey on Youtube for a succinct rundown of the facts.

I still hate them all the same!

@Angillion - You can't reason with some people, they just ignore the evidence.

These are the same people, remember, that insult religious people for the exact same thing that they do themselves.
