Accounts showed that the royal household spent £2.7million on gas and electricity over the past year.

King Charles has been unable to reduce the royal family’s expenses, despite his efforts to do so. In fact, the royal family’s spending actually increased in 2022–2023, rising to £107.5 million. This is largely due to the cost of renovations at Buckingham Palace as well as the expenses associated with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

In an effort to save money, King Charles has reportedly turned down some of the royal family’s more lavish travel arrangements. He has also asked staff to turn down the heating in royal residences and to be more mindful of their spending. However, these measures have not been enough to offset the rising cost of living.

The royal family’s financial situation is becoming increasingly precarious. The Sovereign Grant, which is the public money that funds the royal family’s official duties, is not keeping pace with inflation. This means that the royal family is having to dip into its reserves in order to meet its expenses.

It is unclear how King Charles will be able to reduce the royal family’s expenses in the future. Some experts have suggested that he could slim down the number of working royals, but this is a controversial proposal that is likely to face opposition from within the royal family.

Other experts have suggested that the royal family could become more commercial by selling off some of its assets or licensing its brand. However, this would also be a controversial move, as it could be seen as a betrayal of the royal family’s traditional values.

Ultimately, King Charles will need to find a way to reduce the royal family’s expenses without alienating the public or upsetting the royal family’s traditionalists. This will be a difficult task, but it is one that King Charles must address if he wants to ensure the long-term financial stability of the monarchy.
