Re: Not exactly a reasonable comparison

Her majesty's situation is different she recives payment from the Government as per the civil list act of 1760 (yes older than the US) in return, the state got the Crown Estates which generate considerably more than that infact the value of the civil list is now set at 25% of the income from the crown estate.

and currently HM is only 356 on the UK rich list with a personal fortune of £370 million not even a 100th of Jeff Bezos $116bn
