Other countries often have stricter Privacy laws.

Yes, they can be sued if the breach of privacy happens in that country.

Demonisation of individual seems to be a particular trait of this country, build someone up, then destroy them in n the tabloids. All to sell papers and damn the consequences on individuals. No wonder they want to leave.
I do dislike them and the institution they are part of, they come across to me as couple of spoilt brats and they're not irrelevant to me when I have to contribute towards them

Sadly not I fear, they only want privacy on their terms, serve them right if no bothered covering what they next want to flog, they don't seem to get that it's a double edged sword and you can't have your cake and eat it

Quote:
The portion of the money that funds the Royal Family that comes from the taxpayer is called the Sovereign Grant.

This money is taken from the profits made by the Crown Estate, which is the Royal Familyís independently managed commercial property arm.

The profits go to the treasury to help with the administration of the country, and 15 per cent of those profits is given by the government as the Sovereign Grant to help fund the activities of the Royal Family.

This includes the upkeep of the palaces, as well as the official duties of the members.

The core grant, based on this 15 per cent figure, was £49.3m for the year 2019-18, up £3.6m on the previous year.

And from 2017-18, the Sovereign Grant was increased to 25 per cent in order to help cover the £368m costs of updating Buckingham Palace.

This means that the total amount for the 2018-19 year, taking into account the £32.9m increase, stood at £82.2m.

At the end of the year, any unused money in the Sovereign Grant is moved into a reserve fund, which is also used to help pay for the palace upkeep.

The royal accounts state that the Queenís expenses for 2018-19 were £67m, so this year, £15.2m is being put into the reserve.

In the same year, the Crown Estate provided £343.5m to the Treasury, which was an increase of 4.3 per cent on the year before.

This means the 2020-21 grant is expected to be set at £85.9m.
tl:dr - the money to pay for the Royal Family (£82 million) comes out of the Crown Estate (£343 million), with the balance going to the Treasury.

(Even if we did pay for the Sovereign Grant, it is the equivalent of two pence per person per week).

nb- Iím not a Royalist

You sure you're not a fan seeing as you're not using the full cost to arrive at that figure, when you take everything into account they cost this country 350 million every year in cold hard cash and that figure will only be going one way and it isn't down

Re: Harry and Meghan to step back as senior royals

I couldn't give a whatever if they cost 1p or not. Not about cost. Just filling up crap in the news that's totally pointless like as if someone actually gave a toss.

Believe it or not a lot of people do give a toss. The print media has to sell papers to survive. It doesnít do this by printing reams of stuff nobody is interested in.

Love Island is the logical tv follow-on from tatty gossip magazines like Hello! ... in a way the country hasnít come to this, so much as has been here all along. Itís just once itís on TV itís harder to avoid. The major difference now is that rather than waiting for people to get famous before making their lives into a media freak show, the tv makes them famous and freaky all at once.

At least itís efficient I guess.

I'm thinking more of the celebrity culture which is the real reason they've buggered off. She's about to get exactly what she's been after and this is by far the best way to get it.

I mean for them to moan at the media is just hypocritical when everything they do is for the media. I suppose for Megain it was just all about $$ and fame as everyone knew from the start.
