The current monarch, Queen Elizabeth, gets money in four ways:
- The Civil List pays for her to do her duties as Head of State and Head of the Commonwealth. For 2001 this was over £35 million.
- Grants-in-Aid from Parliament provide money for the royal palaces and royal travel.
- The Privy Purse gives the Queen money for her public and private use.
- The Queen also benefits from her personal wealth and income.
The Queen also pays tax on her personal income.
