When will the British public wake up ?
The Queen is due an inflation-busting 18% pay rise with a bumper payout of £16MILLION from the Duchy of Lancaster.
She will get a £2.4 million increase to fund her official and private expenditure, accounts posted online for the year ending March 2015 reveal.
This money is on top of the annual Sovereign Grant she gets from the taxpayer, which will go up from £37.9 million to £40.1 million for the year ending March 2016.
The Queen’s raise comes as Chancellor George Osborne has slapped a 1% pay rise freeze on public sector workers, including nurses and teachers.
The Queen has three main strands of income – the Sovereign Grant, Duchy of Lancaster and her private investments which she is not required to make public.
