Did you know that Queen sets the tone at dinner? Eating can be a bit of a race to guests. Everyone has to put down their knives and forks as soon as the monarch stops eating. Sure, royal dinners are pretty lavish. However, if you don’t want to end up hungry, you better keep up.
Royals also make money for themselves – they’re not dependent solely on the taxpayer. They have multiple sources of income. Their primary income comes from the Duchy of Lancaster which is a portfolio of multiple residential, commercial and agricultural properties.
Royals actually have a lot of property, from royal palaces to farming, agriculture, forestry to parkland. They also have many commercial and residential properties as well. That’s not all as they also own minerals such as gold and silver. Of course, that’s not all as the royal family has made sure to secure themselves.
Did you know that Queen invented a new breed of dog?
You probably know she loves corgis but that’s not the breed she invented. She actually created a mixed-breed dog named Dorgi. Dorgi is a mix of Dachshund and Corgi, which is a result of love between two of her dogs. It was an accident but soon became a beloved breed thanks to their friendliness and loyalty.
Do you want to get to the Throne? Bad News
There is no point in planning to marry a royal to get to the Throne. Nobody who marries a royal can become a monarch. It always stays in the family and only the blood relatives can be Queens and Kings. Their husbands or wives will be only queen or king-consort.
Did you know that Queen doesn’t need a passport to travel? She can go abroad without a passport, as all British passports are issued in her name. It would be ridiculous for her to issue a passport for herself. However, everyone else in the family needs a passport. She is one of few people in the world who don’t need a passport to travel.
The family is also forbidden from playing monopoly. It sounds bizarre but like every family, they are not immune to arguments. Back in 2008, Duke of York revealed that the game traditionally played Christmas became too vicious. So, they had to ban it from the household.
