The Queen’s official expenditure increased by £200,000 (0.6 per cent) from £32.1million in 2010/11 to £32.3m in 2011/12, according to the royal public finances annual report.

I would have thought the right wing Tax Payers Alliance party would have jumped on this, or are they just happy to reveal elected members’ expenditure?
