    Royals now receive £82m to go around the world waving

    THE Queen is to receive a £6 million income boost from the public purse, bringing the money the royals sponge off the state to £82.2m.

    The bonus was announced the day before the government’s own Social Mobility Commission warned that the divide between rich and poor in Britain is set to become even wider.

    The Queen’s new pocket money comes out of the Sovereign Grant which is paid by the Treasury and will increase by 8 per cent in 2018/19.

    The grant is based on the profits of the Crown Estate portfolio, which includes much of London’s West End. The estate posted a £24.7m rise in profits to £328.8m in 2016/17 — of which the royals will now get a 25 per cent cut, up from 15 per cent, to pay for the refurbishment of Buckingham Palace.

    Keeper of the Privy Purse Sir Alan Reid, equated last year’s grant to 65p per person annually.

    But Republic, which campaigns for an elected head of state, said that once other costs were included, the annual bill for the monarchy was nearer £345m and that attempts to justify the amount are insulting.

    CEO Graham Smith said: “This arrangement is unsustainable, the way the grant is worked out means the taxpayer keeps throwing more money at the royals while public services are being cut.

    “To add insult to injury the palace engages in dishonesty and spin to justify this raid on public funds, making the disgraceful claim that they cost just a few pence per person.”

    While the royals enjoy yet another pay rise at the taxpayers’ expense, the Social Mobility Commission has warned that Britain risks becoming even more divided as two decades of successive government have failed to reduce the gap between the “haves and havenots.”

    The report, which assessed social mobility progress at each key stage in people’s lives, found that under current levels of progress, it will take 80 years before the higher education participation gap between rich and poor students is closed.

    It also found that the income/ wealth divide has become “more acute” between 1997 and 2017, with the poorest earning just over £10 a week more and richest earning £300 a week more.

    “Whole tracts of Britain” feel left behind, said commission chairman Alan Milburn, who added: “The public mood is sour, sometimes angry. Whole communities feel the benefits of globalisation have passed them by.”
