Queen receives pay rise

Written by  Jun 28, 2017

The Queen is to receive an 8% increase in income from public funds, after the Crown Estate's profits rose by £24m.

The Sovereign Grant, which pays for the salaries of her household, official travel and upkeep of palaces, is to increase by more than £6m in 2018/19.

It comes as accounts revealed the Queen's official net expenditure last year increased by £2m, to almost £42m. Keeper of the Privy Purse, Sir Alan Reid, said the Queen represented excellent value for money.
