Charles and Camilla face outrage as their London mansion reopens – ‘We paid for it!’
PRINCE As they reopened their London residence, Charles and Camilla faced a barrage of criticism.
Following closures due to the Covid pandemic, the Prince of Wales, 72, and the Duchess of Cornwall, 74, declared yesterday that they were “looking forward” to guests visiting their official Clarence House residence once again. “Thank you for exploring Clarence House with us over the previous month,” they stated on their official Clarence House Twitter account. We’re looking forward to seeing you again soon!”
Their tweet, however, caused outrage over British taxpayers footing the bill for the future king’s luxurious house.
“All paid for by the taxpayers!” one individual wrote.
“Next time you spend over five million restoring it, at least have the decency to ask the taxpayer first,” said another.
A third person expressed their displeasure with the public being obliged to pay for the house but still being charged to visit.
“Do we have to pay to visit?” they wrote. We should be entitled to come in whenever it suits us because the taxpayer has already paid for this and all of your other homes.”
The Duchy of Cornwall, which is a private income from residential and commercial property rents on the land he owns, provides the majority of Charles’ money for his lifestyle.
He earned £20,415 million from it in the fiscal year that ended in March 2021.
He also gets a one-time payment from the Sovereign Grant, which is funded by taxpayers.

“It’s such a great opportunity to have a good time, to honor the Queen, and to enjoy it,” he remarked.
“A Platinum Jubilee has never been seen before. It will be enormously significant, in my opinion.”
“Hopefully, by the time it comes around, people will be more enthusiastic about coming,” he continued.
“They’ll have been shut up for around two years and will suddenly spring to life.”
