Meanwhile SKy's reporting is more subtle:

http://news.sky.com/story/1289418/royal-family-costs-taxpayer-56p-per-person

"Royal Family Costs Taxpayer 56p Per Person

Royal officials claim money was spent on repairing nationally important buildings but the figure includes William and Kate's flat."

On;ly 56p. That's okay then.

No comments allowed. I wonder why ?

I've noticed sky dont allow comments on certain news stories, like the royals, those people who's daughter was abducted in Portuga, recently, David Cameron etc.

Look on the bright side, they won't need to employ a second safety pilot. If the man in charge suffers a stroke Wills can jump in the left hand seat and save the day. Once he's had multiple hours of very expensive type conversion training, that is.

p.s. I mentioned it to the manager at my local Aldi and they're going to mark out a helicopter circle on the car park just in case.
