You're reading: UK taxpayers shell out more for Prince Charles

Official figures show taxpayer funding for Prince Charles has increased substantially in the past year — but so has his tax bill.

The heir to the throne received nearly 2 million pounds ($3.2 million) from government departments and government grants, nearly 18 percent more than the year before.

The prince’s office says Charles’ income from his Duchy of Cornwall estate increased by roughly 4 percent last year. Revenue from the land estate and business increased to nearly 18 million pounds ($29 million).

Officials said Tuesday that Charles also paid almost 4.4 million pounds ($7 million) in tax, 26 percent more than a year before.

Buckingham Palace is expected to release figures about Queen Elizabeth II’s finances in the next two weeks.
