As a fan of the British royal family, how many of you know that Queen Elizabeth owns a McDonalds?
A common man may be 700 light years away from owning a McDonalds but the royal family is set for life.
In addition to her precious jewellery and expensive racehorses, the Queen also has an impressive property portfolio. The Crown Estate includes some incredibly grand and iconic holdings. Some of them are The Savoy Hotel, Ascot Racecourse more castles than you can shake a stick at. It seems that the Queen of England, Elizabeth is also in possession of something a bit more low-brow: a McDonalds franchise outside of London.
The Crown Estate owns a McDonald’s in Banbury Gateway Shopping Park. It is about 80 miles outside of London. It was created by an Act of Parliament and has property worth a total of £2.4 billion. We all very well know that the restaurant is not her personal property but rather that of the Crown Estate.
