Queen Elizabeth’s finances in turmoil

“Turmoil” is an all relative term in this scenario, as the Queen’s reserves are said to be down to an estimated $1.9 million dollars (still more money than the vast majority of the planet will ever earn or inherit in their lifetime). Among other concerns which literally scream “first world problems”, are the cost of maintaining royal buildings. At Buckingham Palace, the boiler is over 60 years old and the property has ‘excessive electricity bills’. OH NO!
