The Queen has agreed to a plan that would rent out certain state apartments in St. James Palace during the Olympics.  Although not stated in the linked article, ABC news here in the states reported that the asking price was the equivalent of U.S. $50,000 a day.  The article indicates that preference will be given to companies that hold royal warrants.

I'm not sure I like this idea at all, but with all the false fuss over the royals costing tax payers money etc blah blah blah....I guess this was inevitable.  Curious to know how others here feel about this.

If Her Majesty wishes to play the Real Estate game, it is her business.  Perhaps the proceeds will be used to make up the difference in needed and provided funds for maintenance of the Castles and Palaces....

This! The Peerage has been renting rooms and giving guided tours for years in their ancestral homes. It will pull some republican teeth at least!
