    Over the decades, the two private investment-funds of the House of Windsor, plus the separate duchies of Lancaster and Cornwall, have invested carefully and broadly across the British economy.

    Plus there’s a bit of legal-wrangling about the Crown Properties once Charles accedes to the Throne over the “Civil List”. While entailed under the Queen, there’s a bit a murkiness over it being binding on Charles as his great-grandfather’s heir…without his active assent. In-lieu-of accepting Parliament’s Civil List payments, billions of pounds could revert-directly back to Charles and his heirs subject to his paying ordinary-taxes on it….which might be a better financial deal and eliminate the accusations of the family living-off Government subsidies.

    The Queen holds the Royal Collection, which includes the Crown Jewels, in trust as the Sovereign for future sovereigns. Thus, she does not strictly “own” them and they should not be included in calculations of her personal wealth.

    Bad genetics await the royal baby. Born into a family known for their bad teeth, baldness, big ears, hirsuteness, and werewolf appearance. Not to mention insanity and degradation/retardation caused by incest.

    Kev C: Charming. The genetics of the royal family is no worse than any other family. His parents are both good looking and seem to be nice well rounded people. Diana was beautiful if neurotic. Charles was handsome in his 20’s and 30’s. Besides the baldness, which is passed in the female line since it is connected to the X chromosome, I think this child will be blessed genetically. But time will tell.
