The Queen is to get a bailout from the taxpayer after her land and property investments plummeted due to coronavirus pandemic

The Queen will receive a bailout from the taxpayer after her land and property investments plummeted in value due to the coronavirus crisis.

The Treasury said last night that it will top up the Sovereign Grant to help maintain her income, which is severely threatened by the pandemic.

The monarch's income is based on a 25 per cent share of the profits of the Crown Estate, which owns valuable land in London and elsewhere. Last week, the estate announced its profits would fall 'significantly' this year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
