Queen Elizabeth

Why the Queen only carries cash with her on this particular day of the week?


Queen Elizabeth is the most honourable member of the family and we all certainly know that she never carries money around with her.

However, there is this one special day of the week when she carries money with her.

The Queen of England, Elizabeth is always cash-free when she is out and about during the week attending Royal engagements. As head of state, there is no need for her to go out and pay for anything. But there is one unique day of the week when Her Majesty chooses to carry money. That particular day is ‘Sunday‘.

A source revealed back in 2015 and said that “She donates to the church collection basket. Her butler irons a five-pound note into a little square by folding it until you can only see her face”.

So if not the money, what does Queen Elizabeth carry around in her royal handbag? Historian Sally Bedell Smith, who interviewed the reigning monarch’s friends and relatives, wrote that “some mint lozenges, reading glasses, a fountain pen, lipstick and tissues were the few items she always carries around with her”.

While our Queen may not carry cash around with her very often, she is certainly not struggling for money as well. As the reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth has her own personal wealth as well as access to the Crown Estate. The Crown Estate is not included in her total net worth figure.

The royal property provides the largest chunk of this. It includes £107 million Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands, £49 million Sandringham and various farms and marine land across the United Kingdom. All the estates she owns were inherited from her father, King George VI.

There is also an annual government stipend of around £9.8 million which also adds to her wealth. Some of this is taxpayers’ money, which is known as the Sovereign Grant. The rest of it comes from the Duchy of Lancaster which is another collection of properties. It is used to generate the Queen’s private income.
