Income is different than insurance, repair, maintenance, etc...The only "pay" the royals get is income...From land-holdings...The rest are monies that get spent anyway...And, if one was to add up the cost of "public" housing for the destitute, the subsidies paid for the british poor to live for free dwarf the monies used to repair the various state-holdings that are commonly misconstrued to be royal grounds...Frankly, the royal family can do things and say things, both wiithin the 6-nations and internationally, that the PM or Parl. can't do/say for soft political reasons. Economically, socially, and politically, the royals only benefit the United Kingdom.
