In 2019-2020, this amounted to £345 million.

The Queen’s land, property, and assets are valued at £549 million.

The Duchy of Cornwall, a property and business portfolio owned by the Royal Family worth an estimated £923.8 million, provides funding for Charles and his heirs.

The Grant supported nearly 3,200 official engagements by members of the Royal Family across the UK and abroad in 2019-20, with the Queen participating in 296 of them.

Despite the fact that royal engagements have slowed in the last two years due to the Covid pandemic, the Queen still has 192 engagements on her schedule, with 118 of them taking place virtually in 2021.

With 284 engagements last year, Princess Anne was right behind Prince Charles.

Kate attended fewer events than Sophie Wessex, attending 84 of her 119 engagements in person, while Prince William managed to attend 108 of his 223 appearances in person.
