This is what Harry and Meghan are giving up.

The British royal family is very rich, but not as rich as you might think. And that’s because of a centuries-old model for how they make their income - and taboos about earning a private income outside of their official duties.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking free from the rules of how royals make money, which just might be a savvy financial decision.

She might not be as rich as Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos but she is powerful than them. She holds title to roughly 6.6 billion acres of land throughout the world. For reference, that's about one-sixth of the land on the entire planet.

Keep in mind the monarch of England is not just for show. It's an important democratic institution to stop any one leader from gaining too much power. The the army and the parliament do answer to her after all. Plus its better then a supreme court because monarchies must stay apolitical to survive. Unlike the courts.

They didn’t mention that the sovereign grant is only a small percent of the revenue from the crown estates. The government keeps the rest of the revenue from the crown estates. The monarchy isn’t actually costing the taxpayers anything.

royals' many activities and picture attract millions of visitors, which stimulates the economy of the UK strongly. Without it, the UK must lose much more than just millions.

A major thing this video underplays is the actual argument for the sovereign grant - something regularly ignored to make it seem like a donation straight from our taxes. The deal is that the crown surrenders the entire revenue from the crown estate to the government, and in return the sovereign grant is given - calculated as 25% of the revenue they give each year. For example, in 2017-8 the revenue they brought was £329.4 million so the grant for 2019-20 is £82.4 million. So we are not giving them money just for looking good. Yes, the royal family is a cultural tradition, but historically the monarchy is appallingly unethical to say the very least, and can only be justified as long as they continue to financially support the country and the charitable institutions/projects they are involved with - such as the queen using her wealth to protect worldwide forests.

Britain and their royal family is rich and established because of their loot from colonies especially India. Close to US$ 45 trillion they just looted from India while killing at least 50 million people in 200 years.. They are monsters along with Britain.

They definitely do not. Poverty there is still a very big problem. Although their system is still better than USAs. At least they have free universal health care for their people.
