Are the Royals value for money?
Prince Andrew's official role as roving ambassador for British trade has been called into question after a recent flurry of stories about him. How important are the Royals to the British economy?
Prince Andrew has been the UK's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment since 2001, with the job of promoting Britain's business interests around the world.
The total cost of keeping the monarchy during the 2009-10 financial year was £38.2m - a decrease in the cost from the previous year by £3.3m.
Are you happy for taxpayers to pay for the Royal Family? Do they promote tourism and trade? Does the monarchy represent good value for money?
