The figure has been revealed in accounts for Clarence House
Britsh taxpayers will now be paying an extra £1.5 million for young royals as funding shoots up by 40% from £3.5million to £5million as the country teeters on the brink economic collapse.
The figure has been revealed in accounts for Clarence House, which cover Prince Charles, as well as sons William, Harry and their families.
Even though no breakdown was provided, royal sources suggested the rise was due to Prince Charles paying for Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May.
The Queen’s income, mainly from UK taxpayers – Sovereign Grant – has increased 13% due to Buckingham Palace renovations, extra payroll, and travel costs.
Charles funds his own duties and his immediate family’s activities from the income of his vast estate.
It rose from £41.9million to £47.4 million.
The DailyMirror reports: A spokesman said this sum represented an operational cost of 69p per person in the UK, up from 65p last year.
The Clarence House accounts for 2017-18 show Charles’ annual income from his Duchy of Cornwall estate rose by 5% to £21.7million.
His tax bill increased 2% from £4,757,000 to £4,854,000.
Travel cost £1million as he and the Duchess of Cornwall carried out 619 engagements in the UK and official overseas visits to 15 countries.
Graham Smith, of campaign group Republic, blasted the bill. He said: “Charles is the king of expenses, this should make us all worry about what he’ll be like when he’s king of England.”
