Description



How rich is the Queen and where did her wealth come from?


Have you ever wondered where the funding for the Queen's priceless jewellery, gilded carriages and opulent palaces comes from? Not to mention the lavish royal weddings, as well as the divorce settlements.


Senior royals cannot earn their own private income, so what is the source of this immense wealth?


Drawing on previously-unseen state papers and interviews with palace insiders, David McClure's fascinating investigation outlines the many ways in which funds are secured to maintain royal lifestyles, including a 100 million stamp collection, a 10 million fleet of vintage cars, a valuable horse-racing stud and a small fortune in wedding and other semi-private gifts.
