I believe her actual fortune is around the 370 million mark.
Which means she's not even the richest aristocrat in this country.
Just saying...

Meanwhile Harry and Meghan are having Frogmore Cottage refurbished for them to move in including a Spa and a Yoga Studio using taxpayers millions while masses sit in substandard council houses unable to get them upgraded due to lack of funds!!

That's deeply disturbing. The royal family is a total anachronism. Given Betty Windsor isn't short of a bob or two, why doesn't she foot the bill so her grandson come live in the luxury he has become accustomed to?



Not your average Sunday League player.

The Panama accounts?

Absolutely.... She owns more land than any other person on the planet.
But that's not what your op said. You said she was a billionaire... That is incorrect.
I'm no royalist... I see no point in them myself.But folk really shouldn't believe everything they see on a Facebook meme.
Panama papers?... Sorry, you have me at a disadvantage there as I've no idea what that's all about.

Simple, we get to see a certain amount, they have an entirely different amount.
The Queen was implicated in quite a bit of offshore business before the subject just vanished.
Either way sitting in front of a gold piano telling struggling folks we all need to stick together is bad taste, given her and her family's sheer greed.
Obscene.

Is it any different to countless others who do the same, from Hollywood A listers at social bite Edinburgh or 300k a week footballers, millionaires doing a token sleep out in Edinburgh? Is that in all bad taste? Or is it only when the royal family are involved that it's bad taste?

I agree... I chose not to watch it though... For the 47th year in a row 😂
I bow to your superior knowledge Regards the Panama papers. Never heard of them or if I have I've forgotten.
But... My point remains... There are much much richer families than her tribe. Although they don't do Xmas messages to the masses right enough... As far as I'm aware

Denmark.....the Queen liked to go out to the bakers for a fly fag on her bike, I actually walked out in front of her in Copenhagen at a ceremony by accident when she was motioning someone in the crowd to give her a call.
Her security very politely asked me to step back,which I did, simply because it was so cordial...nae panic...nae fuss.

I Hope You're Ok Today....

Aye that's the one, I missed the barras unfortunately , I'm pals with David the Dijancer.
Funnily enough the sound was a bit bassy the year before, looked a good night :)
I'll no doubt catch you at a Yellow movement gig at some point :)
Nice folks!

The Dutch crown Prince (now King) used to fly planes with KLM. He was a pilot and used to do it incognito, although his voice was sometimes recognised over the intercom. He used to say if asked that he did radio commercials.
