How big a debate, if any, is there over the money spent on royal family.

There is some anti-monarchist sentiment for sure.

But I think a significant proportion of British people would include the Royal Family as one of those quirks that make the country what it is.

I don't care much for the Royal Family personally, but I understand the appeal to some.

It's pretty low down on the list of issues that I worry about, but yes, they are essentially living on taxpayer derived benefits and some investments based on the same.
