Hi

Hardly relevant.

The Crown Estates is hundreds of years old and is a major contributor to Public Funds.

Re: Greedy Royalty!!!

Any landowner is automatically entitled to the mineral rights under their land not just the Royal Family. This has always been the case. Now new laws require that they register that right. Where's the big deal?

Re: Greedy Royalty!!!

Royalty is above politics and any thread distinctly about them should not be in this section !

That's a distortion of the truth, which is exactly what the article in the Independent is.

Re: Greedy Royalty!!!

They are not above anything .
They are just people who have won the lottery of birth .
They have no talents or attributes that have gained them their unmerited position .
In short they are like super pampered pets .
to be wheeled out to shake hands with people who hold power.

I totally agree with this and I find people who bow and scrape to them most odd people. Or who stand in freezing conditions at Xmas waiting for a glimpse of them.
