    The expenses of the monarchy, including office staff and other expenses, are covered by the Sovereign Grant, which represents a minority percentage of the Crown Estate income.  The state gets the majority percentage, in an agreement first made in the late 18th century, so the state's getting the better end of the deal.

    The Queen pays annuities out of her personal, Duchy of Lancaster, income to those royals who carry out royal engagements on behalf of the monarchy and the country. These cover their expenses. There are far fewer such people than there used to be.

    The Cambridges' official expenses are covered by Prince Charles, out of his Duchy of Cornwall income.
