Widow since 1993, the Queen received 26,988,036 Euros (USD 35,246,375 at the current exchange rate) of public funding in twenty years. She also
inherited a substantial portion of the assets of King Baudouin after his death. Having no direct heir, the inheritance tax on the fortunes of the
queen would have been taxed at 70%. The creation of a private "foundation" allows her to avoid this pitfall.
So much for the rest of us common mortals who have to pay 70%. You must also know that the royal family does not pay income tax, property tax or sales
tax. They have full diplomatic immunity and cannot be prosecuted.

A nice thing to remember when you wake up early in the morning for that long commute to work so that you can make just enough money to pay all your
bills, if you are lucky enough.
