Charles's tax bill soars by £900,000 to £4,398,000

Spending on travel up 56% to £1,080,000

Camilla and Charles travel 34,000 miles on official trips

Charles's income from grants-in-aid and Government departments rose 17.9 per cent from £1,664,000 to £1,962,000.

He certainly gets a nice tax rebate.

I think it has risen because it fartifically ell last year, thanks to the Canadistanis psying for his visit to Canada.

What gets my goat is that some of the rise is to cover charitable contributions he makes. Very generous with our money, and we have no say on what crackpot charity he might splash it on. How generous. How democratic.

Edit to add: Some people justify the Royals by arguing that they 'do a lot for charity'. With our money, it would seem.
