The total value of £44.5 billion includes £18.1 billion of assets including the Crown jewels and royal palaces. On top of that, the monarchy is reckoned to be worth an additional £26.4 billion because of the economic benefits it brings to the UK, through the boost to tourism and other industries.

It is believed to be the first time that the monarchy has been given what would best be described in corporate finance circles as a market capitalisation value.
