Queen Elizabeth II will fund the over half a million dollar renovation for Sandringham.

According to The Sun, Her Majesty will foot the bill of the Sandringham renovation from her own pocket. The repair is estimated to cost $608,000.

The Sandringham upgrade will involve having a new section be lifted into place via crane later this summer. Sandringham House is open to the public between April and October but at present, visitors are met with an apology sign for the disruption.

“Works are under way on the north end of Sandringham House to repair a large area of lead roofing which has remained untouched since 1870 when the house was built,” the sign reads.

“It is essential we carry out these works at this time of year when the weather is fair.”

While the Queen decided to cover the cost of Sandringham renovations from her own purse, the taxpayers paid the renovation for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Frogmore Cottage that cost $3.05 million. The public were not happy after learning about it, but Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, said that the renovation was necessary.

“The property had not been the subject of work for some years and had already been earmarked for renovation,” Stevens explained.

“The building was returned to a single residence and outdated infrastructure was replaced to guarantee the long-term future of the property. Substantially all fixtures and fittings were paid for by Their Royal Highnesses.”

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were criticized for the outrageous amount especially that they wanted to keep their lives private. One said that they can live privately if they stick to private funding. Another online user said that once public money is involved, it’s a different thing.

In related news, Queen Elizabeth II was stunning in her red coat and matching hat when she attended a church service on Sunday in Balmoral. Markle didn’t join the Queen but many believed that they were in Scotland, too, because the Queen invited the former “Suits” star to her favorite home for her birthday.
