Official accounts surrounding the Royal Family, The Queen and their finances have been released; such finances are always investigated thoroughly by reporters and members of parliament so it is always great to see a decrease in spending.
The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall’s finances showed a drop in expenditure from £2.1 million (nearly USD $3.2 million) to £1.1 million (nearly USD $1.8 million) in the 2012/2013 period.
However in the Diamond Jubilee year, Her Majesty’s cost rose by around £900,000 from £32.4 million.
