    Your argument sounds nice but is sadly misfounded. The 170 million pounds you cite are generated by the Crown Estate and flow into the Treasury's coffers; in return the Windsor family receive the money off the Civil List.

    However, the Crown Estate was never the personal property of the monarch. The current arrangement came to be when the British monarch ceased to use the Crown Estate to pay for government expenditure. Elizabeth Windsor is not donating her own 170 million to the British state; she receives public money in return for public money.
