Oh yeah a fair few dozens royals
No, because the UK makes a huge profit of the royal family. Taxes would go up without them, not down.
Even if you decide for political reasons to lie about it and pretend that the only thing that exists is the civil list, that costs about 12p per person per year and none of it goes to any of the royal family anyway (it's used for paying the wages of other people).
You couldn`t be more ludicrously wrong if you tried.

Oh yeah a fair few dozens royals 100,000 prisoners, and Scotland - we pay a lot to them too, although we should get a decent reduction in debts when they go independent ahem
