Queen Elizabeth’s inheritance sparks reactions
Therefore, we went looking for how much Queen Elizabeth will leave to her heirs and the fortune draws a lot of attention. Namely, the British newspaper The Sunday Times estimated the values to be around £365 million or R$2.2 billion. Despite being the richest monarch in the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II was not even among the 30 richest people in the country or the world.
Another British vehicle called Good To informed that the British fortune comes from three sources of income: the inheritance inherited in the succession, payments of private scholarships and the Sovereign Grantor Sovereign Subsidyin Portuguese, where British taxpayers pay taxes to royalty.
Criticism also falls on the Royalty
Despite having generated a commotion around the world, many people did not even mourn the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Much of this comes from the well-known colonial past of the United Kingdom, especially in the continents of the Americas, Africa and Asia.
India, for example, for years a British colony, demanded the return of the diamond Koh-i-Noor which, depending on the country was stolen by the East India Companyin 1840, in the 19th century.
Finally, South Africa has also demanded for many years the return of the diamond known as “The Great Star of Africa”but which had its name changed to Thomas Cullinan, the president of the mine where it was mined.
